Vantec NexStar Vault Review

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 950 WindForce 2x Overclocking Edition

Article Index

We are in the age of computers and technology, and most of our important and precious information is kept in a digital format, rather than on physical matter. We have pictures, videos and documents that we need to keep safe and secure. Heck, I just bought a house and most of the documents that were transferred had to be scanned into the computer and emailed. With the rise in identity theft, and even physical property theft, there needs to be a location that we can store all of this sensitive information without worry.

 

The Vantec NexStar Vault is a perfect answer to all of your portable security needs. The Vantec NexStar Vault is a USB 2.0 hard drive enclosure with keypad security. The NexStar Vault has an actual key pad on the outside that you program, like a combination lock, to access your data. So even if the drive itself gets stolen, the data is safe.

 

What the NexStar Vault does is format and partition the drive into "Public" and "Vault". The "Public" partition acts like normal and is accessible to anyone. The "Vault" partition is encrypted by the device and is only accessible when the correct PIN is given.
