Where can I get all the secure devices that I hear about?

There are a number of secure devices available to you for use to make your digital life more secure. One of these is a two-factor authentication device for online banking. This is usually a one-time password token. You can ask your bank if these are available for your use. Another type of secure device you can use in your personal life is a secure, encrypted flash drive (or USB key). These are available at your local office supply store. Look for a flash drive that features encryption, or scrambling, of your data and requires your PIN or password to access it. A third secure device you may have heard of an identity smart card or token for use in the enterprise. These devices are issued to you by your organization and contain your identity credentials so you can securely log on to enterprise systems and servers.
