iStorage launches a new ultra-secure USB 3.0 flash drive for corporate and government organisations

The datAshur Pro* provides a tamper-proof, super-speed USB 3.0 solution for organisations that transport sensitive data and want protection against data loss/theft
iStorage, a leading British developer and manufacturer of secure portable data storage and encryption products, has launched a new USB 3.0 ultra-secure flash drive aimed at business and government organisations looking to safeguard sensitive information.

The datAshur Pro® is pending a range of high-level security accreditations including FIPS 140-2 Level 3, CESG CPA Foundation Grade and NLNCSA Level 2, providing peace of mind to organisations that regularly carry and share sensitive data.

The new datAshur Pro incorporates all the features of its predecessor, the datAshur, but with a super-speed USB 3.0 interface and higher capacities of up to 64GB. Features include an on-board keypad for authentication, which gives the flash drive ultimate protection against software and hardware-based keyloggers. In addition, the datAshur Pro incorporates a boot delay feature which means users can boot any operating system directly from the drive.means the datAshur Pro secures your data from unauthorised access even when lost or stolen.

The drive incorporates military grade XTS-AES 256-bit hardware encryption, a read-only (write protect) mode, a user configurable timeout lock and brute force hack detection and protection. All of this means the datAshur Pro is ideally positioned to secure data from unauthorised access, even when lost or stolen.

John Michael, CEO at iStorage adds, “Under the Data Protection Act, it is essential that all corporate and government organisations comply with data security regulations to avoid hefty fines, which can reach £500,000. Many data breaches occur from theft or loss of a device, therefore a high level of security should be applied to confidential data on devices, such as USB flash drives and portable hard drives. The datAshur Pro was designed with this in mind and offers the highest level of encryption and security available.”

The pending CESG CPA, FIPS 140-2 level 3 and NLNCSA accreditations demand a rigorous evaluation period where products are tested against published security and development standards. The certifications mean that government, wider public sector and industry can use products while being safe in the knowledge that their data will be guarded against theft if the device is lost or stolen.
