Origin Storage, a leading manufacturer and distributor of IT storage solutions, has launched its Amacom Data Locker. The Data Locker Secure Drive gives users peace of mind in the event that that their data storage device is lost or stolen. The data is secured by a 6-18 digit PIN number which is entered directly on the device itself.
With security breaches and data loss stories frequently appearing in headlines, the need to secure data has become more essential in order to avoid such incidents. Data Locker allows the portable drive to mount an operating system only when the correct PIN has been entered on the LCD keypad. You can also use the LCD screen to change the Data Locker PIN, dismount the drive, toggle the encryption on or off, or wipe the drive clean.
The Data Locker utilizes a hardware based encryption chip to seamlessly encrypt and decrypt your data using military grade AES / CBC mode encryption.
The Data Locker will allow you to store and protect all of your highly sensitive data, and personal files. It is available in three different capacities, 160GB, 320GB and 500GB and will be a vital piece of equipment for local governments and businesses alike.
Andy Cordial, Managing Director at Origin Storage comments, Data Locker is the first device of its kind with PIN protection and AES hardware encryption. High profile data loss is on the increase due to the large amounts of unprotected electronic data on the move in the public and private domain. The Data Locker can lock down your portable data and ensure safe transportation of your most sensitive information.
