    Recommended encrypted USB sticks?

    I think my constant nagging has paid off and we are looking at getting some encrypted memory sticks soon and need some prices for budget setting.

    Anyone got any recommendations?
    I have been looking at the Integal range.

    We use those here. Havnt had any problems so far.

    Things to consider though . .


    • They dont work with OSX
    • If the teacher puts the password in wrong 6 times then the drive will format itself
    • It has a handy part on the software where you can add the persons details should it get lost

    All in all we've had them since september for all our teaching staff and their working well

    Probably too pricey and overkill for what you need but I just bought 4 of these for the IT Team. LEXAR SECURE II PLUS 16GB USB KEY - Misco.co.uk

    The software allows you to create a 'Secure Vault' for any extra sensitive data as well as a few other usefull tools. Only had them a couple of days but so far no problems.

    There was a company at BETT called Eclypt (Eclypt - FlagStone Evolution, Stonewood, Encrypted, Secure Hard Disks and External Memory Sticks) and they seemed very good and cheap as well.. they also offered encrypted hard drives worth a look at

    Bit of a shameless plug here but Safestick is not affected by this flaw, further details and pricing here...
