ToughTech Secure Q with WriteLock
AES Encrypted Storage Enclosures with a Read Only switch
A Read Only switch for Hard Drives
WriteLock is the ability to "lock down" data on hard disk drives. In other words, WriteLock enables a Read-only feature similar to CD-ROMS and DVDs without the small media size or speed limitations. Once data is on the drive in the desired way, enable WriteLock to prevent further changes. Perfect for situations where data must be distributed to another party and you want to ensure the data is preserved.
How to use WriteLock
Use ToughTech in full Read/Write mode with a standard SATA hard drive for as long as required.
To engage WriteLock mode, press and hold the WriteLock button while ToughTech powers up.
ToughTech is now in WriteLock mode and ready to share Read Only data.

AES Encryption Key
Tough Enclosure, Tough Protection
This ToughTech includes hardware-based, government-strength encryption. Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), the FIPS approved encryption standard, is now mobile and incredibly easy to use. With ToughTech Secure Q you'll get guaranteed full-disk hardware based encryption, with no loss of speed.
Strong 128bit and 256bit available
Our 128bit hardware encryption is FIPS-197 listed (certification number 60) and our 256bit hardware encryption is FIPS 140-2 (Federal Information Processing Standards) (certification number 1471).
This means that NIST (the National Institute of Standards and Technology) has given it a thumbs up, verifying as strong enough for government use.
Due to federal guidelines for selling encrypted products, we're restricting direct sales to our approved distribution channel partners. Contact us for information on where you can buy our 128 or 256-bit encrypted products.
