December 3, 2008 In this day and age, it's not just the tinfoil hat crowd who are likely to find themselves a little paranoid about their precious data. Iomega has announced two new entries to their eGo portable range, the ultra-rugged eGo BlackBelt and the government-grade encryption packing eGo Encrypt.

The eGo Blackbelt features a 250GB capacity and Iomega's Drop Guard Xtreme feature that promises to protect it's contents from falls of up to seven feet. The eGo Encrypt expands on the Blackbelt with a 320GB capacity and 128-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) encryption - if it's USB cable is disconnected from the computer, the drive automatically locks until a password is entered. Unfortunately, the encryption functionality of the eGo Encrypt is not compatible with OS X.

The eGo BlackBelt is now available worldwide for US$119.99/EUR99.90, while the eGo Encrypt is expected to be available worldwide this month for US$149.99/EUR134.90.
