PIN CODE ACCESS AND HARDWARE ENCRYPTION ON NEW DISKG* FROM iSTORAGE DELIVER ULTIMATE SECURITY WHEN ON THE MOVE

iStorage, a leading specialist of portable data storage devices and digital encryption, has announced the launch of an innovative and unique portable data storage device, diskG*. Offering pin code protection and hardware encryption in a compact and robust design with integral connectivity, it delivers unparalleled security and controlled access to business and personal files and folders when on the move.

diskG* provides a powerful solution to keeping confidential data secure when away from home or the office. Access to data stored on the diskG* can only be obtained with a PIN code, similar to using an ATM. The device features AES 256 bit real time hardware encryption to keep data secure even if the hard drive is removed from the enclosure. With storage capacities of up to 1000GB*, the device can be used for safely transporting data between office and home as well as storing photos, music and video files.

diskG* requires no software installation, enabling an immediate and easy setup. Its conveniently integrated USB 2.0 cable eliminates the need to carry around leads, making it ideal for use with notebooks when taking data on the road. Its low powered, compact, robust design features a 16-point omni-directional shock mounting system to protect the drive from any potential damage. The device allows up to ten unique user IDs and one administrator, providing a secure and cost effective solution for small/medium businesses.

Real time hardware encryption
diskG* delivers a superior level of data security through real time hardware encryption, which performs its operation ‘on-the-fly’, encrypting and decrypting bytes and sectors of data as it is written or read from the hard drive. This delivers greater performance and speeds compared to software encryption, and as no software is installed, users need not worry about Trojans, viruses and software upgrades.

Key benefits

  • The highest level of security with pin code access and hardware encryption
  • Optimum mobility with integral connectivity in a robust, compact design
  • Simple to install and use with no software or applications needed

Users of Windows®, Macs® and Linux® operating systems can all benefit by keeping their data locked down and secure, due to diskG*’s extensive compatibility. A three year warranty also provides users with assurance that the product will perform to high standards. For more information please visit www.istorage-uk.com or call +44 (0) 20 8832-1253
