Increased capacity on secure USB and portable storage

iStorage has launched two higher capacity versions of two of its most successful hardware-encrypted portable storage devices. In addition to previously available capacities1, the diskAshur portable disk drive is now available with a 1.5TB capacity, while the FIPS 140-2 Level 3 certified datAshur USB flash drive can be purchased with an expanded 32GB of affordable, ultra-secure storage.

diskAshur is the next-generation of iStorage’s portable hardware-encrypted disk drives, and features a comprehensive range of data protection measures and SuperSpeed USB 3.0 connectivity to deliver a robust and compact data security solution to businesses, organisations and individuals. The datAshur USB flash drive recently received FIPS 140-2 Level 3 certification from the US government’s National Institute of Standards and Technology, significantly quantifying the level of data protection the device offers users.
