What Is AES Encryption?

AES stands for advanced encryption standard and is a 128-bit data and file encryption technology designed to keep your data and files safe. AES 128-bit encryption is one of the safest and most secure encryption methods. This password protection encryption system for your SanDisk Ultra 256GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive is widely considered impossible to break into. 128-bit encryption describes the length of the encryption/decryption key. This length of 128-bits is considered secure because it would take a massive amount of computing power and likely thousands of years to crack the password protection offered by AES 128-bit encryption. 128-bit encryption is commonly used to protect most network and internet communications systems, like web browsers, websites and, of course, your SanDisk 256 GB flash drive.
