Aluratek today announced the availability of its new Tornado plus line of external hard drives featuring built-in radio frequency identification (RFID) security key data encryption, fast transfer speeds and storage capacities of up to 1TB.

“As consumers continue to embrace a truly digital lifestyle, keeping that digital content backed up and secure is becoming more important than ever,” says Aluratek’s John Wolikow, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Our new RFID Security Key Encrypted Hard Drive backs up all of your important files and keeps them ultra-secure. A swipe of the RFID security key by the external hard drive encrypts the data so that it cannot be accessed without the unique RFID key swipe a second time to unlock it. Two RFID security keys ship with each external drive.”

Aluratek’s Tornado plus RFID USB 2.0 External Hard Drives come in capacities from 160GB to 1TB in two different sizes (2.5″/3.5″). Data transfers are quick and easy across a high-speed USB 2.0 connection that can reach transfer rates of up to 480Mbps.

The devices are compatible with Microsoft Windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows Vista and Macintosh OS 10.3 and above.

The Tornado plus external hard drives are now available at CDW,,, PC Connection, Provantage, Newegg and other select resellers for prices ranging from US $119 for the portable 2.5″ 160GB version to US $249 for the 1TB 3.5″ desktop version.
