“The build quality, as we touched on when unboxing it, is fantastic. The drive has a bit of heft to it, with an all-metal front and back with a tough rubber edging. The keys are lovely and clicky, with their epoxy coating to prevent wear and the built-in USB cable tucks away perfectly and securely. We can’t fault the design at all, it perfectly fits the overall appeal of the device.”

“Moving onto the actual purpose of this drive, the security. While we’re not outfitted, not by a long shot, to thoroughly test the security aspects of this drive, we can fully appreciate the testing procedure that has gone into making sure the data inside is as safe as it can possibly be. While doing research on what the different accreditations actually meant and how they impact things, we’ve truly begun to understand just how important data can be to some people.”

The ease and speed with which critically important data can be accessed and transferred means that everyone — from major corporations to individual users — must take measures to better protect it.

“iStorage is a pretty well-known name in the encrypted storage market – they were the first company on earth to get a portable encrypted storage solution on the market with their DiskAshur Pro series (which has certifications by NATO and other major organizations). The DiskAshur 2 (non-pro) series lacks these certifications but as far as I can tell that’s pretty much all the difference between the Pro and non-Pro variants. In any case, they should be more than enough for the average consumer’s security needs.”

“STORAGE may not be sexy but it’s a necessary ongoing expense for photographers in the digital age, especially with rising pixel counts and the move to 4K video.

For example, you could be photographing commercially sensitive subjects or, in this post-GDPR world, holding private client data such as contact and payment details. “
