The Future of Physical Hard Drive Security
Anonymous Reader writes "Earlier this month, LaCie revealed another one of its SAFE desktop hard drives with biometric fingerprint reader (scan to get access), internal drive lock (lock the drive inside the case), secure password protection (only authorized users can lock or unlock the drive) and external chain lock (securely and physically lock the drive in place). To an average user, this much security is a little too much. Even though majority of us have critical financial and other personal information that we would like to prevent others from accessing, the internal and external chain locks are a bit too extreme."
