The LaCie Mobile SSD Secure and LaCie Portable SSD promise photographers, videographers, designers and other creatives, high performance with read speeds of up to 1,050 MB/s and write speeds up to 1,000 MB/s. This performance has been produced to expedite productivity and give the ability to complete file transfers quickly or work directly from the drive.

Loaded with added hardware encryption, which includes an access feature in the LaCie Toolkit software, the new LaCie Mobile SSD Secure differs from LaCie Portable SSD by giving users an added layer of data security. Both drives use USB 3.2 Gen 2 USB-C technology and are compatible with USB-C and USB 3.0 computers and tablets, with a compatible USB-C cable included in the box. The drives are designed with out-of-the-box compatibility with Windows®, Mac®, and iPad®, and include file mirroring software that allows for seamless file access and syncing across multiple devices.
