Use the ToughTech Secure m3 to protect data of all kinds from prying eyes. Its rugged portability and small size makes the ToughTech Secure m3 perfect for safeguarding data you want to carry with you.
The ToughTech Secure m3 uses government-strength 256-bit AES encryption to ensure that your sensitive data is safe from theft and hackers. Even better, the ToughTech Secure m3 has no hackable password/passcode since it relies on hardware (not software) encryption and a 256-bit encrypted hardware key to provide access to the drive.
Furthermore, the ToughTech Secure m3 features a unique WriteProtect read-only mode that "locks down" your data and prevents someone from accidentally deleting or modifying it or reformatting the drive.
