WD has recently introduced redesigned My Passport Ultra portable hard drives and My Passport for Mac drives. Now on its 7th generation release, My Passport Ultra and My Passport for Mac portable hard drives are now available in capacities up to 3 TB and in four stylish colors – classic black, brilliant white, wild berry and noble blue.
According to Tony Tate, general manager and vice president of content storage solutions at WD, the latest My Passport drives deliver an “easier automatic back-up experience, hardware-based encryption for security and higher capacities than ever before.”
My Passport Ultra portable drives come in 3 TB, 2 TB, 1 TB and 500 GB capacities and feature 256-bit AES hardware encryption, which is considered already as a high-level of security. This type of security also does not affect write-speed or CPU activity.
If your My Passport Ultra falls into the wrong hands, the 256-bit AES hardware encryption protects users’ files, folders, photos, videos and music with a password known only to them.
The new hard drives also features USB 3.0 compatibility that provides fast data transfer rates of up to 5 gigabits per second.
My Passport for Mac portable drives are available in capacities of 3 TB, 2 TB, 1 TB and also feature 256-bit AES hardware encryption with USB 3.0 connectivity.
Another feature that comes with the new hard drives is the built-in WD Backup software, a simple-to-use application with focus on reducing frustration when setting up a backup plan to preserve data.
Since 31% of devices have had malware at some point, having your data safely backed up onto a secondary device like a My Passport drive is critical to preserving precious data.
My Passport Ultra and My Passport for Mac portable drives will be available in August through selected retailers and resellers and are distributed by Iontech, Inc. and EA Global Supply Chains Solutions, Inc.
Suggested retail price for both My Passport Ultra and My Passport for Mac is Php 3, 890 for 1 TB, Php 6, 490 for 2 TB, Php 8, 990 for the latest 3 TB offering.
Suggested retail price for My Passport Ultra 500 GB is Php 2,990.
Both products will offer a 3-year limited warranty. Terms and conditions of WD’s limited warranty may be found at support.wdc.com/warranty. .
