Origin Storage launches Government grade encrypted portable hard drive

Basingstoke, UK, (PresseBox) - Origin Storage, a leading manufacturer and distributor of IT storage solutions, has today announced that DataLocker Inc. received FIPS 140-2 validation certificate #1504 for the DataLocker Enterprise v2.0 encrypted portable hard drive. Issued by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2 validation program ensures that cryptographic modules meet all government and military standards for data encryption.

DataLocker Enterprise is a USB portable external hard drive that supports MAC OS, Windows, Linux and Unix operating systems. DataLocker provides high-capacity, secure portable storage for public and private sector users who collect, store, transfer, share and disseminate sensitive information.

DataLocker Enterprise Capabilities:

- Protects sensitive data from loss or theft through hardware-based 256-bit AES encryption
- Requires no software or drivers because all encryption and management functions are performed at the device level, 100 percent independent of the host computer
- Patented touchscreen display allows users to enter their password directly on the device
- Mitigates "shoulder surfing" PIN observation attacks through a randomized keypad
- Handles large volumes of data with 1 terabyte of storage

"Government and business leaders are seeking assurance that their data is encrypted, particularly when it comes to portable storage media," said Lance Melber, CEO of Data Locker, Inc. "FIPS validation offers that assurance, demonstrating that DataLocker provides tested, proven data encryption. Our secure external hard drive gives customers peace of mind that their data is safe in the hands of mobile employees."

Andy Cordial, MD of Origin Storage comments "FIPS validation opens up new markets for DataLocker Enterprise and ensures that our customers are getting a fully tested and approved solution. Having FIPS for the DataLocker Enterprise is very important as it has passed the FIPS testing as a complete solution (not just the chipset)."
