The Autothysis128s and Autothysis128t are 2.5-inch solid state drives (SSD), that can be controlled using a free smartphone app available on Android and iOS.
The drives each have 128GB of encrypted storage and can be fitted to computers, or connected externally using a USB port.
They also have built-in GSM, or cellular technology, which means they can receive text messages.
When a user loses the drive, or wants to permanently delete the data on it, they send a text to the device and the storage is destroyed.
In addition to a text message, the data can be destroyed by turning off the GSM signal, entering a PIN too many times incorrectly, removing the drive from a PC, when the battery falls below a certain level, or using an optional authentication token.
The Authothysis DSP has the same amount of storage and encryption tools as the other two drives, but doesn’t come with GSM functions.
Prices start at £938 ($1,500), for the Autothysis DSP, while the Autothysis128s costs £967 ($1,560) and the top-of-the-range Autothysis128t costs £1,027 ($1,663).
