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

There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch. DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential.
Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Jocelyn Scheirer, CEO & Founder of Bionolux, will discuss ho...

We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With "smart" appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies. Nest, a Google company, detects temperatures inside homes and automatically adjusts it by tracking its user's habit. These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps, abiding by privacy concerns and making the concept a reality. These challenges can't be addressed w...
The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...
