Flash Padlock on Mac


Recommended Posts

Hi there


Firstly, I apologise if it sounds like I have not read the specs, I am just a little wary and would some clarification.


I am looking for a USB stick with hardware based encryption, that is cross platform compatible with Windows (XP onwards) and Mac (OSX 10.3 onwards).


From what I have read, the Flash Padlock encryption / decryption is carried out directly on the drive itself, so it does not need to touch the operating system at all. However, will the drive mount correctly on a Mac and Windows machine with no issues?


In terms of security


Once again, apologies if this info is in the specs, but I am about to recommend to a client that they purchase roughly 50 of these devices, so want to make sure that they do exactly what is needed.


Any thoughts would be gratefully received.

The Flash padlock does not use encryption the padlock will simple turn on and off the drive with a pass word. And I am sorry I do not know of any drive at this time that would work with a Mac and Windows using encryption. However, you can check at http://www.truecrypt.com and see if they support Mac software.
