NEW EXTERNAL PORTABLE HARD DRIVE DELIVERS MILITARY LEVEL SECURITY FOR IMAGES, VIDEOS AND PERSONAL DIGITAL FILES

A new external hard drive with military level security has been launched to offer unrivalled
security of personal files and folders. The new diskG* combines ATM style PIN code
access, which means only those that have the 6-16 digit PIN can retrieve data, with AES
256-bit real-time hardware encryption in a robust, compact, shock-proof design.

diskG*, from iStorage, a leading specialist in portable storage and digital encryption, will
be ideal for many users who wish to protect confidential files from accidental loss or theft.
With increasing numbers of individuals storing large volumes of photos, downloading
content from the Net and commuting with confidential documents, users can be confident
that the content of the hard drive is secure, even if the drive is removed from its enclosure.

What is hardware encryption?
Real time hardware encryption 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.

With storage capacities of up to 500GB*, diskG* is also equipped with a conveniently
integrated USB 2.0 cable, making it easy to store away and is protected by a 16-point omni-
directional shock mounting system. Once connected the computer’s operating system will
set it up making it instantly ready for use; once disconnected it leaves no trace.

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.
