istorage extends its reach in europe

29th September 2011

iStorage, a leading specialist in portable storage and digital encryption, has signed a distribution agreement with Identiware BV extending its reach into the European market.

The primary focus for Identiware will be on iStorage’s flagship portable hard drive diskG*. Featuring a robust, compact, shock-proof design and combining ATM style PIN code access with 128 or 256-bit AES hardware encryption, it ensures information is totally secure even if the drive is removed from its enclosure. Available in HDD and SSD versions, diskG* is the first USB hard drive to be awarded a CESG Claims Tested Mark (CCTM) certificate operating at levels below ‘Restricted for Information Assurance.’

John Michael, Managing Director of iStorage comments, “We welcome Identiware as an iStorage distributor in Belgium and Luxemburg who together with our existing distributors now represent a comprehensive pan European network. Organisations will be subject to increasingly serious punitive measures levied as a result of data loss. iStorage is committed to satisfying the growing demand within IT and business communities to better safeguard information saved to portable data storage devices, a task that our network will now be able to effectively help us achieve.”

Marcel Hartgerink, Managing Director of Identiware comments, “Due to the distribution agreement with iStorage we can offer state-of-art external storage devices with the best encryption technology and good storage characteristics at very reasonable prices. The diskG* of iStorage offers the unique combination of an external hard disk with Real Time 256-bit AES hardware encryption and Pin Code Access. The level of accreditation in the UK (CESG CCTM) and use of a FIPS PUB 197 validated Encryption Algorithm will also open many doors in Belgium and Luxembourg.”
