Press release from: atsec information security

Austin, TX – atsec information security is happy to announce that its customer 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 appropriate government and military standards for data encryption.

DataLocker Enterprise is a FIPS 140-2 validated 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
- Patent pending touch screen 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 140-2 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.”

Apostol Vassilev, CST laboratory manager for atsec, commented: "As a laboratory interested in applying the FIPS 140-2 standard to the fullest extent possible to ensure the strongest security assurances possible from every product tested by us, we were pleased to be working with a developer equally committed to meeting the rigorous security requirements of the standard, which naturally led to the successful validation of the product.”

This includes testing services according to FIPS 140-2 for Cryptographic Modules, as well as cryptographic algorithm testing. atsec is also accredited to perform validation of software for the Security Content Automation Protocol (SCAP) and GSA Personal Identity Verification Testing (FIPS 201).
