Data Locker Announces New DataLocker Sentry FIPS Drive

Next-Generation DataLocker Secure USB Sentry FIPS Drive Makes Secure Storage Small and Simple

OVERLAND PARK, KS -- (Marketwire) -- 11/27/12 -- Data Locker Inc. (www.datalocker.com), a leading developer of encrypted data storage products, today announced the availability of the DataLocker Sentry™ FIPS Drive, a new, secure USB flash drive that utilizes the certified and proven encryption technology from DataLocker™. The newest addition to Data Locker's line of encrypted portable storage solutions, this next-generation, smart USB drive combines 100 percent hardware encryption with the ability to connect to a remote management system. A USB drive has never been so secure, while still taking advantage of the agility of portable storage.

Increasing emphasis on employee BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) mobility requires the use of convenient devices that provide a secure computing environment. Combining military-grade encryption with plug-and-play simplicity, DataLocker Sentry is the smallest, fastest and most secure USB drive in the world. Password-protected and capable of securing up to 16GB of data, DataLocker Sentry helps eliminate risk and gets sensitive information locked, loaded and on the move in seconds.

"Every year, 20 million unprotected USB drives go missing. If the data stored on those drives ends up in the wrong hands, the public is at risk, sensitive data is compromised, public trust is lost, and suddenly you find yourself in the middle of a business scandal," said Jay Kim, Founder and COO, Data Locker. "Secure USB flash drives are an essential pillar of a comprehensive data loss prevention (DLP) strategy. Security must be implemented in the hardware in order to combat the evolving threat. With your data stored on the hardware-encrypted DataLocker Sentry, it is always protected from unauthorized access."

When storing high-value data, the tamper-proof DataLocker Sentry is perfect for any organization. The epoxy coating for the chip and flash protects it from physical intrusion from water, dirt and thieves. Add to this the many features and speed of Data Locker's on-board, zero-footprint software, and users can rest assured that they never have to suffer from the often devastating consequences of data breach or a broken device.

DataLocker Sentry drives can be remotely managed worldwide, with the proven SafeConsole® management. SafeConsole allows you to manage multiple devices anywhere in the world, providing remote reset of passwords, backup, write protection, wiping of sticks and more. SafeConsole can also remotely shut down and kill Sentry on a Mac or PC.

Additional features of the DataLocker Sentry include:

  • 256 bit AES CBC mode encryption
  • FIPS 140-2 Level 2 validated
  • Available in 4, 8, and 16 GB capacity
  • User-friendly setup -- no software installation nor administrative privileges required
  • Timer lockdown -- automatically locks the device after a customizable number of minutes

  • Fully compatible with Windows 7, Vista, XP, Server 2008, 2003, Mac OS X 10.5.x or later, and Linux Kernel 2.6 or later

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
IoT generates lots of temporal data. But how do you unlock its value? You need to discover patterns that are repeatable in vast quantities of data, understand their meaning, and implement scalable monitoring across multiple data streams in order to monetize the discoveries and insights. Motif discovery and deep learning platforms are emerging to visualize sensor data, to search for patterns and to build application that can monitor real time streams efficiently.
