Press release from: iStorage Limited



Ultra-secure iStorage diskAshur² is the latest gadget to have: Super speed USB 3.1, PIN authenticated, hardware encrypted portable data storage drives with unique EDGE™ technology.

(London, June 2017), With Father’s Day just around the corner, are you stuck for ideas on what to get for your ultimate gadget and ‘tech loving’ dad? With a dad who always wants the latest device and with ‘state of the art’ James Bond type features, look no further than iStorage and their new diskAshur range of colourful hard drives and solid state drives – perfect for storing family and work documents without the fear of the data getting lost or stolen!

iStorage, the award winning and trusted global leader of PIN authenticated, hardware encrypted portable data storage devices, launches their new range of USB 3.1 the diskAshur² hard drive and diskAshur² solid state drives all of which are designed, developed and assembled in the UK.
Featuring Enhanced Dual Generating Encryption (EDGE) technology making them THE most secure data storage drives available on the market – super spy like!

EDGE™ Security Features:
One of the unique and underlying security features of the GDPR compliant diskAshur² hard drive and diskAshur² SSD is the dedicated hardware based secure microprocessor (Common Criteria EAL4+ ready), which employs built-in physical protection mechanisms designed to defend against external tamper, bypass laser attacks and fault injections. Essentially the drives feature technology that encrypts both the data and the encryption key, giving you confidence that private information is secure and protected.
So in short, without the PIN, there’s no way in! and you can’t get more ‘James Bond-esque’ than this!

Ideal for users looking for an easy to use secure solution for storing all their data, elegantly designed and available in 4 striking colours (Phantom Black, Ocean Blue, Fiery Red and Racing Green) meaning there’s plenty of technological features to get to grips with. In capacity options from 128GB to 2TB, there will be space for all the family.

The science bit:
With software free set up and operation, the diskAshur² HDD and diskAshur² SSD is platform/device independent meaning it works across all operating systems including all versions of MS Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, Chrome, Thin Clients, Zero Clients and embedded systems.
In fact, the drives will work on any device with a USB port!
Additionally, with an ultra smooth fascia that doubles up as shock-absorbers, the drives being water and dust resistant (IP 56 certified) and supplied with a stylish and sturdy travel case, the iconic contemporary design also features an integrated cable which can be conveniently stored away when not in use.

In addition to EDGE™ technology, the following common features are included:

* Brute Force Hack Defence Mechanism - Intelligently programmed to protect against all forms of Brute Force Attacks. Upon the 15th consecutive incorrect PIN entry, the diskAshur drive assumes it is being attacked and will delete the encryption key and lock itself, rendering all data previously stored on the drive as lost forever. At this point the drive can be reset to factory default settings and redeployed.

* Self Destruct Feature: Users can pre-program the diskAshur drives with a unique Self Destruct PIN which, once entered, instantly deletes the encryption key rendering all data previously stored on the drive as lost forever.

* Unattended Auto-Lock Feature: Set the drive to automatically lock after a pre-determined amount of time where the drive has not been used.

* Wear Resistant Epoxy Coated Keypad: Designed with protection in mind, the diskAshur range offer a wear resistant epoxy coated keypad which hides key usage to avoid tipping off a potential hacker to commonly used keys.

(London, Nov 2018), Researchers at Radbound University in the Netherlands revealed that major flaws found in some self-encrypted Solid State Drives (SSDs) allow an attacker to bypass the password-based authentication process and access encrypted data stored on the drives. The researchers found that the data encryption keys used to secure data stored on the drives are not derived from the owner’s password, and that an attacker with physical access to the

PIN Diode Market: Lucrative Opportunities across Globe
A PIN diode is a silicon semiconductor consisting of a highly resistive intrinsic layer between heavily doped P and N type material. The intrinsic layer of the PIN diode is either undoped or virtually undoped and provides the change in properties when compared to a normal PN junction diode. Its wide intrinsic layer makes it an inferior rectifier but highly suitable for photo detectors, attenuators, and high voltage power electronic
