Hardware encrypted USBs and becoming GDPR compliant


Encrypted USB sticks offer a quick and easy solution to protect businesses and ensure they are compliant with GDPR if employees share personal data between departments or within their team.

It’s easy enough to see why firms are choosing to invest in them when you take into account just how many data breaches occur each year from USBs and hard drives being lost, misplaced or stolen. When not encrypted, these devices can be easily accessed by a third party and put thousands of people’s data at risk. Making encrypted USBs readily available to staff can ensure that data can still be shared safely and with confidence.

In general hardware encrypted USBs that are manufactured with their own built-in encryption are considered more robust and a securer option compared to those that use software encryption.

As they are pre-loaded with the encryption already on, they also don’t require the user to have any prior knowledge of how to setup or use, making it significantly more accessible to all employees. Many of the encrypted USBs offered by USB2U are also anti-brute force attack, adding another layer of protection that standard software encrypted USBs do not.

Encrypted USBs ensure that data can never be accessed by unauthorised personnel.

USB2U offers a selection of hardware encrypted USBs which can be customised with a logo/ brand, offering an ideal solution for businesses seeking to improve their overall data protection and help them take a step forward in becoming fully GDPR compliant. Whether it is USB2U’s Kingston DataTraveler models or new SafeToGo USBs, the company can offer a bespoke solution for businesses of any size, with the added benefit of being able to brand onto each stick via our printing and engraving facilities.

Additional services such as serial numbering, printing individual names on to each stick and SafeConsole management options are available on request.
