new additions

10th June 2010

New SSD format, 128-bit AES encryption and larger HDD capacity now available

iStorage has recently revealed a number of new additions to its unique range of award winning diskG* portable storage devices that combine ATM style PIN code access and hardware encryption. The diskG* is now available with a solid state drive (SSD) to enhance reliability; 128-bit AES encryption to cater for a wider range of business needs; and an increased HDD capacity of GB to keep pace with end user demand.

John Michael, Managing Director of iStorage commented, “By expanding the diskG* range to include new encryption levels, platforms and capacities, iStorage aims to ensure that we cater for everyone’s security needs and make it easier to secure data. diskG* is one of the best examples on the market today of secure portable hard drives and our expanding range is testimony to the product’s obvious appeal and growing success.”

Solid State Drive (SSD)
Solid State Drives do not have any moving parts and all the storage is handled by flash memory chips. This provides three distinct advantages for the diskG* including less power usage, faster data access and greater reliability. Since a SSD diskG* does not have to spin the drive platter or move drive heads, data can be read almost instantly and with fewer moving parts, the device is more damage resistant. SDD’s are available in 30GB, 64GB and 128GB capacities.

128-bit AES encryption
Offering a cost-optimised solution to data security, 128-bit AES encryption is sufficient to address all commercial and personal data security requirements, as judged by NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology). The Institute has stated that 128-bit AES encryption will provide adequate encryption until beyond 2031* and is a viable and credible alternative to iStorage’s flagship 256-bit hardware encrypted device.

New HDD capacity
A new 750GB HDD diskG* is also now available, adding to 250GB, 320GB, 500GB and 640GB capacities. HDD and SDD versions are available with either 128-bit or 256-bit real time hardware encryption.
