The LOK-IT is a USB flash drive with a hardware-based security system that requires users to log in on a self-contained, on-board PIN pad. The PIN pad is not connected to the host computer and the LOK-IT drive cannot be detected on any computer until the proper PIN is entered. That, combined with on-the-fly 256-bit AES hardware encryption, makes LOK-IT very secure.
The device works with all Windows, Mac, Linux operating systems, as well as with other office supporting the USB standard. It requires no software updates and is bootable from the drive.
In contrast, other USB flash drives must be connected to the computer and require its users to enter their password on its keyboard, making them more vulnerable to key logging malware and password theft.
The LOK-IT Secure Flash Drive comes with a 5- or 10-key PIN pad and is available with storage capacities of 2GB, 4GB, 8GB and 16GB. The 10-key model has an anodized aluminum shell filled with an epoxy potting, creating a damage-resistant barrier that is dust and waterproof up to IP-57 standards.
