Life's an adventure – and disaster can strike at any turn. With the RuggedKey, the last thing you need to worry about is your data. Heat and cold resistance protect your data in the most extreme of climates, whether you're trekking across a scorching desert or braving the frozen tundra. Furthermore, it's IP-54 certified for resistance to damage from dust and water projection. The RuggedKey is the most portable storage in the LaCie Rugged family yet, and the best on-the-go protection for the real world.
The LaCie RuggedKey is built to withstand accidental drops from heights far above what you'd encounter on your way to the office. Its rubber construction is 100m drop-resistant. That means ultimate protection for your key – and your data – for all of life's little stumbles.
Bigger files need better speed. With the RuggedKey's USB 3.0 interface, you get speeds up to 150MB/s for daringly fast file transfers. USB 3.0 represents an enormous speed increase from USB 2.0, and best of all, since it's backward compatible with USB 2.0, there's never any worry about connectivity.
LaCie makes it easy to integrate secure cloud storage from Wuala into the RuggedKey, making storing and sharing your files, photos, or videos easier than ever. You get a year of one-to-one storage ratio with Wuala (your 16GB RuggedKey will come with 16GB of Wuala Secure Cloud Storage, for example), allowing you to back up your key's contents or double your storage capacity. Even access your files on the go with the Wuala Mobile App.
Hardware rugged, and software secure – the RuggedKey key protects your data from the inside with AES 256-bit encryption. Easily create a password-protected area on the key to securely store all of your confidential information. Ultra-secure AES 256-bit encryption technology means the RuggedKey is secure from the inside out.
