Origin Storage has refreshed its high capacity portable encrypted storage range designed to provide enterprise-grade encryption to protect sensitive data.
The Datalocker III drive comes with a number of enhancements, most notably SuperSpeed USB 3.0 compatibility.
Origin has also included 256-bit AES XTS hardware encryption together with radio-frequency ID technology. Administrators can pre-set a security code and users can protect data by entering a 32-digit alphanumeric pin directly into the device.
Improvements have also been made to the design, including a backlit screen, improved resolution and a touch screen.
Andy Cordial, managing director of Origin Storage, explained the continuing importance of securing data using portable devices.
"The headlines have once again been filled with a number of high-profile breaches so, whilst organisations are investing thousands in solving this problem, more still can and needs to be done," he said.
"Encryption is your first and last line of defence. It prevents people accessing confidential information in the first place, and protects it should the device be lost or stolen."
Datalocker III is compatible with all platforms including Windows, Mac and Linux and is available in capacities up to 1TB. Prices are still to be confirmed.
