All-Terrain Data Protection

Your data is irreplaceable, so it’s vital to protect it against any conceivable mishap wherever you go. That's why LaCie made the new Rugged tougher than ever. It’s MIL-compliant, which means that data is protected even during accidental drops of up to two meters (6.6 feet). During transit, connect the removable cover to provide IP 54-level protection against dust and water. Whether the LaCie Rugged takes a jarring bicycle ride or gets splashed by a mud puddle, you stay confident that your data is still accessible. The SSD version goes a step further for the ultimate in resilience against vibration and shock. Both versions are tough enough to be shipped for reliable delivery to clients or partners. Included software even protects your files from prying eyes with AES 256-bit encryption.
