Flash Drive Lock for your USB Jump Drives

Sometimes I look at products and I just have to ask, "Why?" This is one of those products. The idea is that you can put your jump drive into this and then lock it so that only someone with the proper 3 digit code can unlock it.

I suppose that makes sense, but did it ever occur to the manufacturer that if someone really wants inside they can just try every combination? It's only 3 digits and it wouldn't take that long to hack. I suppose if you just wanted to keep snooping eyes at the office out of it, it would be a decent deterrent. However, I don't think this is the kind of thing that would keep a healthcare office HIPPA compliant.

Wouldn't it just be easier to buy a drive preloaded with encryption software and just use that? Good. I thought so to.

However, if you really want to buy one, you can order here.
