Embedded systems that utilize a RUGGEDrive removable memory system benefit from:
- Protection from malware
Replacing an SD card or USB port with a RUGGEDrive receptacle that accepts only Datakey tokens prevents SD/USB devices with malware from plugging in.
- Reduced risk of theft
Unlike standard USB sticks and SD cards, there is no incentive to steal a RUGGEDrive token.
- Limited support and testing
No need to test and support every USB stick and SD card from the past, present and future, as none of them fit.
- Increased ruggedness
Both RUGGEDrive tokens and receptacles are more robust than consumer SD and USB devices and connectors, providing reliable operation in challenging environments.
