We’ve reviewed a few different iStorage encrypted hard drives and USB flash drives in the past and they do a great job at protecting your data, but what about your cloud data? I’m sure most of you make use of some type of cloud storage whether it is Dropbox, Google Drive, iCloud, etc. Wouldn’t it be nice to have an extra layer of security to protect those files? I mean anyone that gains access to your PC or laptop could easily access those files. iStorage has thought of this and released their new cloudAshur encryption module. It is essentially a USB flash drive that has a hardware encryption module embedded that will allow you to encrypt and well as decrypt files stored on your Cloud services.
Special thank to iStorage for providing us with the cloudAshur Cloud Encryption Module to review.
The cloudAshur comes in a small retail package. On the front it has a picture of module.
Flipping over to the back many of the features are detailed and it lets you know some of the major cloud providers it works with.
Getting everything out of the box we have the cloudAshur module and a quick start quide.
