Maybe it’s just me. Ever since I got a laptop with an internal Wi-Fi radio, I haven’t found much use for that ExpressCard port on my notebook. Well, there are still products being developed for that port and one such product is the CipherChain Expresscard.
In a nutshell, it allows you to secure the data you have stored on an external hard drive or solid state drive. The great thing is that you don’t have to remember any passwords or install any software for it to work. Instead, the ExpressCard unit comes with a slot where you insert the AES 256-bit Cipher Key.
The BlackArmor’s claim to fame is that it has government-grade AES encryption certified by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
