Peddler of high tech war gear Lockheed Martin seems to
have had a bit of a change of heart on its business strategy.
According to a press release that crossed our desk the
outfit is getting into making an ultra-secure USB flash drive. Obviously this is a bit of change form the laser guided
death rays and combat fighters the outfit usually turns out.
With a little help from the people at IronKey, the new
key comes with some custom software that allows you to carry your entire
computer with you and securely use it on any public computer.
The basic drive has 8GB of storage, and includes 256-bit
encryption, built-in virus protection, and a variety of networking features,
The network tools will let organisations keep watch on individual drives and
control what can or cannot be installed on them.
So far there is no word on a release date or
pricing. It might be that Lockheed
Martin will just flog them to outfits who ask.
