IStorage has launched new devices designed to provide real-time hardware encryption along with data protection and security tools.
The firm claimed that the two devices are suited to home users, small firms and large enterprises looking to control and restrict access to sensitive data.
The DigiSAFE DiskCrypt Mobile and DigiSAFE DeskCrypt products comply with a range of international data protection standards and regulations, according to the firm. Each is supported with two-factor authentication and require a smartcard/PIN combination.
"Data loss means big trouble for business. With so many incidents hitting the headlines on an ever more frequent basis regarding loss of highly sensitive and confidential data, iStorage products fill a void that currently exists in the market," said John Michael, managing director at iStorage.
"In the absence of stricter government legislation to better protect data saved on storage devices such as portable hard drives and USB sticks, our new devices represent an opportunity for companies to set the standard.
"Businesses can now demonstrate responsibility through best practice procedures to ensure that confidential and sensitive data is safe at all times. "
DigiSAFE DiskCrypt Mobile is available now and costs £151.80, including VAT. The portable device supports USB 2.0 and FireWire, and gives remote workers " absolute confidence" in the security of their documents, according to the firm.
DigiSAFE DeskCrypt will be available in September, and is designed to sit between the SATA connector on the motherboard and a PC hard drive. It costs £143.75 including VAT.
