New 3.5″ USB 3 Desktop Secure Hard Drive to be showcased at Infosecurity Europe

iStorage, a leading specialist in portable storage and digital encryption, will showcase the world’s first portable, hardware encrypted drive with PIN code access and capacities of up to 3TB on stand A39 at this year’s Infosecurity Europe event in London, 19-21 April. The new iStorage Desktop Secure Hard Drive has a robust, shock-proof design and 256-bit AES hardware encryption, which encrypts data on the fly as fast as any USB 3 hard drive.

With substantial storage capacities of 1TB, 2TB and 3TB, the new 3.5″ drive features a USB 3 interface and is armed with a brute force hack defence mechanism. This, along with its 6-16 digit PIN code access, ensures all data held on the drive is totally secure and cannot be accessed by any third party, even if the drive is removed from its enclosure. Furthermore, no software installation or administration rights are required to set it up.

John Michael, Managing Director of iStorage comments, “Now the Information Commissioner’s Office has the power to implement fines of up to £500,000 for serious breaches of the Data Protection Act, it is vital that organisations encrypt all sensitive data. With its extensive storage capacities, our new Desktop Secure Hard Drive offers businesses and government bodies a secure and easy to use solution to protect against fraudulent use of misplaced or stolen personal and financial information.”

Users of Windows®, Macs® and Linux operating systems can all benefit by keeping their data locked down and secure due to the iStorage Desktop Secure Hard Drive’s extensive compatibility. A three year warranty also provides users with assurance that the product will perform to high standards. iStorage’s range of secure portable hard drives has won numerous awards, including a CESG Claims Tested Mark (CCTM) certificate for operating at levels below ‘Restricted for Information Assurance.’
