According to Lexar, its new JumpDrive SAFE S3000 FIPS thumbdrive is the world's first smart card-based FIPS 140-2 Level 3 validated flash drive. FIPS 140-2 is the U.S. government standard for computer security used to accredit cryptographic hardware and software

Apart from the built-in data protection, the drive is housed in a rugged rubber case that exceeds military waterproof standards and is capable of protecting the drive from shocks.

The JumpDrive SAFE S3000 FIPS looks like other thumbdrives, though it is a little heavier because of its thick metal casing.

The drive comes built-in with encryption software that works both with Macs and PCs. At first run, the software will prompt you to create a password, after that you will type in this password each time you want to access the data stored on the drive.
