iStorage datAshur® PRO USB 3.0 receives yet another government

(London, Nov 2017), iStorage’s datAshur PRO, PIN authenticated, hardware encrypted USB 3.0 flash drive has received the “Departementaal Vertrouwelijk” (restricted) accreditation, which considers the processing of sensitive information within the Dutch Government with regards to the Information Security Code – Special Information, meaning that employees from all kinds of Government departments can now choose the datAshur PRO from a standard list, after passing rigorous tests and meeting requirements in the processing of confidential information.

At a time when data security is high on the agenda for everyone due to the upcoming General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the “Departementaal Vertrouwelijk” certification will reassure all stakeholders and government organisations around the world, of the robust level of protection offered by the datAshur PRO.

The datAshur PRO incorporates a super-speed USB 3.0 interface, with capacities ranging from 4GB to 64GB. Features include an on-board keypad for authentication, which gives the flash drive ultimate protection against key-loggers. In addition, it incorporates a brute force hack defence mechanism, meaning that after 10 consecutive incorrect PIN attempts, the drive assumes it is being hacked and deletes the encryption key and locks itself, rendering all the data previously stored on the drive, as lost forever.

The drive also incorporates military grade AES-XTS 256-bit full disk hardware encryption, a read-only (write protect) feature and a user configurable timeout lock feature. All the components are covered by a super tough epoxy resin which is virtually impossible to remove without causing permanent damage to the components. All of this means the datAshur PRO is ideally positioned to secure data from unauthorised access, even when lost or stolen.

Jan Peters, CEO, E-quipment BV, iStorage’s exclusive Benelux distributor comments:

“We are very happy with this conclusion and we expect a significant growth of users next year because this means we are being recognized as one of the few manufacturers that deliver a truly secure solution, that cannot be tampered with” says Jan Peters, CEO of distributor E-quipment BV, who represents iStorage exclusively in the Benelux area and who had worked closely with iStorage to help manage the project.”

Says John Michael, CEO, iStorage Limited:

“Having previously received the FIPS 140-2 Level 3 certification for the datAshur PRO, the Departementaal Vertrouwelijk is yet another security certification which is testament to the ultra-secure features incorporated within the drive. The rigorous testing and certification procedure offers reassurance for all organisations and users can rest assured that the datAshur® PRO meets the strictest standard of data protection, which is a vital and critical requirement for today’s data security environment.”
