You can now grab a 3TB external hard drive, the CNM CoreDU33TB, from Ebuyer for only £110 including delivery.
The storage device, the CNM CoreDU33TB, is a 3.5in model with a USB 3.0 and a two-year manufacturer’s warranty.
It comes with the DESLock+ application that “is accredited by the UK Government CESG CCTM scheme and is validated by NIST in the USA to FIPS 140-2 level 1." In other words, it's pretty darn solid stuff, so long as you don’t lose your master password.
The application can store multiple encryption keys in a keyfile and support AES, 3DES and Blowfish algorithms. It also includes a secure data shredder and a keyfile backup utility.
As for the actual product, it is only 31mm thick and weighs 610 grams. It does use a power supply and is only marginally more expensive than an internal hard disk drive like the Seagate Barracuda. Unfortunately, we don’t know much about its rotational speed, or the amount of on-board cache it comes packing.
