Inexpensive, lockable USB memory stick

One of many solutions in this growing field, thanks to :

Inexpensive, lockable USB memory stick:

"Data traveling around on memory sticks are vulnerable to compromise through loss or theft. Information on these devices often includes keys, passwords, protected health information, or identities of employees. The trick for organizations that allow the use of these devices is to find a low cost, easy to use, secure solution. The Corsair Flash Padlock USB Stick might just be the answer....

The biggest shortcoming is that Corsair isn't offering a larger-capacity version of the Flash Padlock.

The Corsair device doesn't appear to encrypt the data. It just makes it inaccessible without the user-assigned PIN."
