Ultra-small and compact enough to fit into a dress shirt pocket, Honeywell answers the call of today's necessary precautions for secure computing. Like most people, I have more accounts and passwords than I can remember on my own. In addition to my own personal information, I must also remember the sensitive account details for my clientele. Because the SecuraDrive is a 1.8" hard drive mounted inside a rugged chassis, there is a level of protection above and beyond the growing capacity of USB flash drives.
