We all are the fans of James bond series and non of us have ever missed any of his movies. We have seen so many cool gadgets which are so high tech and innovative but almost impossible to be present in real life at-least at the time when movie get released. In so many movies we have seen his devices which get auto destruct if an unknown or unauthentic person tries to access it. But have you seen any such thing in real life. If your answer is NO! then today we have something crazy for you directly from James Bond movie to real life which can be also purchase that too at very affordable pricing.
Today we have a diskAshur hard drive which works as the same, as we have seen in the movies. It has software encryption as well as hardware privacy which can never be breached and if in any scenario there came any expert which tries to unlock it by any mean, the hard drive will automatically destruct all the data. Now isn’t it cool.
So, Lets see how it works and what all we can do with it.

Do we Really Need it?
So, the main question which comes up in the mind is that do we really need such high end 256-bit protection in our hard drive. Then according to me if you are business executive or your work is highly secret like some government file or really private then this har drive is just meant for you. Most of us think we don’t need this level of security, but with all malware and viruses next level of data protection is very important.
How it Works?
Starting with the built, overall top notch quality is used to made this hard drive. We get rubberish feel all over the hard drive, the numeric keypad on top of the hard drive is coated with high quality plastic which is non destructible easily. We also get inbuilt Cable using which we can connect the drive with our PC. On the front, a numeric keypad is present which provides 256-bit hardware level encryption which means the pin number, you will never gonna get the access to the drive.
At the rear side of the drive we get 4 rubber pads which act as a stand to the drive while placed on the table.
First when we open up the package of iStorage diskAshur, it uses a default PIN code which you need to change after the first use. One more thing once you remove the USB from your system, the drive will automatically locks back down.
The hard drive has given the hardware level as well as software level protection which gives you the perfect privacy of full military level encryption. Coming to the performance of the hard drive. It is USB 3.1 Drive which is the only drive in the world till now to give such protection in this high speed data transfer rate.
