Best Encrypted USB Flash Drives for Students

0

USB Flash Drives are one of the easiest ways to store and transfer data. However, they often lack security measures and are the most vulnerable to data loss. Meaning that if you accidentally misplace your drive in the library for example, or if it gets stolen, it can be very easy for someone to access the data held on them. A security breach might also happen if a virus is present on a user’s computer and when that drive is then plugged into the infected system.

Encrypted USB Flash Drives are one of the easiest and most secure ways to ensure that your data is protected. In particular, AES 256-bit hardware encrypted USB flash drives are more secure and harder to break than software encryption, adding an extra layer of security to stop others from accessing what’s yours.

To help you out, we’ve chosen the best secure drives from Kingston to ensure you are buying a dependable storage solution that meets your requirements.  So, on that note, here are the best USB flash drives for students.
