Innodisk has just been granted the patent for its fire-proof external SSD by the USPTO, with the new Fire Shield SSD able to survive in direct flames at 800C for over 30 minutes.


The company ran comparison tests before and after the Fire Shield SSD was dunked in flames, with 100% data accuracy results. Inside, what Innodisk has done with the Fire Shield SSD is take inspiration from the black boxes used in planes and other vehicles, which are built to be secure to survive a major crash or explosion.

Innodisk uses triple-layer protection between the outside of the Fire Shield SSD, and the SSD itself. The company is using layers of flame resistant copper alloy, drive-protecting connector design, and heat-isolating lining material. There are over 20 heat-resistant materials used in total.
