Data is stored on a range of devices from desktop hard disks to removable USB devices. Protecting your mobile data has become increasingly more important, as more confidential information is being stored on small USB devices. Exposure of your social security number, credit card, and bank account information could subject you to identity theft. Company documents may contain trade secrets/confidentiality, personal information about employees or clients, or the organization's financial records - all of which is fatal for any business.

The features now installed on the most secure USB sticks yet can help put an end to these disastrous occurrences, fully ensuring your data is secured and if lost, obliterated so that no third party can get their hands on it. And so arrives the modern flash drive.


Generally, a lot of data stored on USB devices is of no use to anyone but the person whose âhistory homeworkâ or âItaly â09 Albumâ it is for examples. However there is some data that is highly sensitive and if it fell into the wrong hands it could have devastating consequences. Kick starting the efficient mobile data security is âremote data deleteâ. This stand-out feature allows you to destroy all data âover-the-airâ, in the case of a loss or theft. Meaning when the device is unmanned, not plugged into a computer you are still able to wipe the contents of the drive. This functionality will most certainly require an internal battery.


The most impressive feature and granted inevitability of our modern-tech world, has to be the GPS tracking capability. Users can, if needs be, track and locate their device on a map. This means that if the device is lost or stolen - it can be recovered quickly. This feature removes all of the panic and stress that is usually associated with lost data. The GPS tracking device allows you the knowledge of considering what the next step should be. If you find that your device is in a location it shouldnât be in, then why not wipe it clean? (remote data delete). Because the device has its own battery you can destroy the chip even when itâs not plugged in to a laptop or PC. Whatâs more, the device doesnât even require an internet connection for you to remotely clear the stored files.


Additionally, another handy feature is location selectivity. You can simply choose a geographical area in which you want the device to function. For example, if you donât want/need the device to work outside of your work office, it wonât. If the drive leaves the pre-defined area it will switch off automatically. You can also set up additional areas; if you need to access the information in your home office but want to hand it over to a colleague in your regional office, this feature allows.
