DataLocker Story

DataLocker is driven by just two words: simply secure. Our products and services are designed to make it simple to secure your data without fear of compromise.

We know that your organization has more important things to do than worry about a data leak or a fine for noncompliance with your industry regulators. That is why we have made it our mission to provide easy-to-use, cost-effective, military-grade data encryption solutions to enterprises around the world.

DataLocker is the leader in data encryption technology so that your organization can focus on being the leader in your own industry.

Innovative

While technology may change rapidly, DataLocker is innovating just as quickly, providing cutting-edge and compliance-driven products to ensure that our customers’ security solutions are always one step ahead of changes in the industry.

Although security breaches and data leaks have now become a regular part of our modern news cycle, DataLocker continues to ensure that government, legal, healthcare, financial, military, and other sensitive data remains protected. And as the leading brand in data encryption technology, DataLocker is a frequent presenter at technology and security events, including the world-renowned RSA Conference, to share the latest in the field. In fact, we have more than a dozen patents for the technology used by some of the largest companies in the industry—and nearly just as many patent applications awaiting approval.

DataLocker understands that protecting your data deserves state-of-the-art security, and our portfolio of products give you just that opportunity. Our encrypted hard drives and encrypted virtual drives give you the storage you need so you can rest assured that your information is protected. And because we know that the ability to safely and securely transfer data is just as critical, DataLocker’s encrypted flash drives and encrypted optical media (both CDs and DVDs) allow you and your organization a secure solution for removable media storage.

But we don’t stop there. In order to manage your data across multiple devices and drives, DataLocker has pioneered central management systems that enable your organization’s administrators to control, inventory, and audit your encrypted drives simply and securely. With our central management solutions, you can manage your encrypted drives from anywhere in the world using our easy-to-use interface.

DataLocker also offers the opportunity to automatically scan your data for viruses, worms, trojan horses, and other malware threats—and to automatically remove any viruses found, with reporting on the virus incident to your central management console.

Military-grade

Our devices and management solutions are simple to use—but that does not mean that they are lacking in iron-clad security for all of your endpoints.

DataLocker’s military-grade 256-bit encryption is used in each of our products to secure sensitive data. Our products are compliant with TAA (Trade Agreements Act), and most are also compliant with FIPS (Federal Information Processing Standard) requirements. Customers who use DataLocker products can feel confident that they will not face the burdens of remediating security problems, facing fines for noncompliance, or dealing with a public relations nightmare because of a data breach.

Do not leave your data vulnerable to chance, to forgetful employees, or to breaches. Choose one of our secure solutions that have been proven to be trustworthy by the organizations who face the most potential for exposure worldwide.

While some companies in the data encryption industry specialize in either hardware or in software, DataLocker provides both services with expertise, ease, and affordability. From storing and monitoring data to encrypting and protecting it, our products are designed to be easy-to-use and cost-effective enterprise solutions for your organization. And unlike some of our competitors’ products, DataLocker’s devices cannot be disabled and do not rely on the hassles of installation: our devices feature automatic hardware encryption.

All of our products are developed and engineered in house, and our research and development team is always busy creating and refining the features that our customers have come to trust and rely upon. Our patented technology sets our products apart and has become the gold standard for data encryption products worldwide. Whether your company seeks the benefits of encrypted jump drives, removable media storage, encrypted optical media, encrypted virtual drives, or device management, DataLocker’s strong patent portfolio provides the foundation for the best data security solutions on the market today.

Simply secure

Companies, government agencies, and organizations who rely on sensitive data rely on us to keep it secure. For more than a decade, we have been providing data encryption and enterprise solutions so that companies like yours can feel confident in the security of your data—and with affordable products that will cost your organization less than a non-encrypted, non-managed solution (or the repercussions of storing and transferring unencrypted data).

Our award-winning cybersecurity products are used by Fortune 500 companies, banking services, military agencies, and more. In fact, nearly three out of four Fortune 100 companies use DataLocker’s security solutions to protect their data—and those are just some of the 250,000 customers we serve across 35 countries.

Founded in 2007, DataLocker has continued to extend our breadth of expertise, enhance our suite of cost-effective product offerings, and expand our position as the leading provider of enterprise encryption solutions through critical partnerships and acquisitions. In 2015, DataLocker acquired BlockMaster and the SafeConsole® management service. And in 2016, we acquired IronKey Enterprise Management Services (EMS) and additional assets while growing our partnership with Kingston, who simultaneously acquired IronKey’s USB technology and assets.

DataLocker is headquartered in Overland Park, Kansas, just outside of Kansas City. We have been honored with recognition from the Kansas City Chamber of Commerce as a Top Ten Small Business for multiple years and have become a cornerstone of the technology boom that Kansas City has been enjoying in recent years. We also currently have offices in California, Canada, and South Korea to better serve our customers worldwide.

DataLocker Difference

No matter the industry you are in, your organization likely relies on sensitive data that helps you reach your customers, serve your clients, and drive your business.

And if you pay attention to the news, you know just how devastating a security incident or leak can be to your organization and its reputation. With stories of data breaches and mishandled information a common part of the news cycle, now is the time to protect your data.

With simply secure drives from DataLocker, you can take the hassle out of protecting sensitive data and ensure that your organization is protected from unauthorized access. Here are the top three benefits for securing your data with DataLocker’s encrypted drives.

1.      Easy to use

Training staff to properly handle sensitive data is not always a surefire way to protect information. In a 2009 study from the Ponemon Institute, a shocking 51% of users stored confidential data on flash drives—and 65% of lost USBs were never even reported to management.

Instead of trying to change the habits of the users, change the drives.

2.      Military grade

While DataLocker’s drives have the convenience of removable storage, they also feature our military-grade 256-bit encryption.

Our patented technology is used by government agencies, military agencies, healthcare organizations, and financial institutions. DataLocker’s simply secure drives are designed to protect even the most sensitive data.

3.      Cost effective

The cost of data remediation after a breach, of fines for noncompliance, or of a public relations fiasco after a security issue can quickly become astronomical. And that’s before you factor in the damage done to your reputation.

Using DataLocker’s simply secure drives protects you, your data, and your brand for a fraction of the cost.

Choosing simply secure drives for your organization can make all the difference when it comes to protecting sensitive data from loss or unauthorized access—without a big price tag or the need for a lot of extra training for your staff.

How to protect your data from disgruntled employees

family_safeconsole

We hear about cybercriminals and data hackers all the time.  But another threat lies close to home and can be equally if not more devastating.  Sensitive data and corporate intellectual property must be protected at all times, even when it comes to employees.  Disgruntled employees with malicious intent can wreak havoc, as can those who unwittingly violate corporate data use policy.

So what’s an organization to do, especially now that business is more mobile than ever?  How can sensitive data be protected from disgruntled employees?

For starters, having a solid corporate data usage policy and clear standards on the front end is a given.  Privileged passwords that are updated frequently and limited access to data are two things to consider.  In addition, the administrator should ensure that any former employees’ user accounts have been disabled.  IT departments should be vigilant, monitoring for potential insider threats and being aware of activity that looks suspicious or out of the ordinary by anyone that has access to corporate credit cards, proprietary or sensitive business data and other intellectual property.

DataLocker provides many solutions for encrypting data, which greatly reduces the risk of hacking by disgruntled employees or outsiders.  Employers have to be able to manage and track data. This includes knowing who has accessed it and from where, and through which device(s).

When it comes to mobile security, all of DataLocker’s hardware encrypted products, particularly the ones that can be managed with either IronKey EMS or SafeConsole, can give you peace of mind as you protect your data, your mobile workforce and your organization. Unlike most portable storage solutions, DataLocker drives use hardware-based encryption for seamless encryption that does not compromise performance. DataLocker drives also have a self-destruct feature so that if a drive is lost or stolen, potential attackers will not be able to use brute force to break into them. This greatly increases the odds of your organization coming out of the whole experience unscathed. It is imperative that organizations efficiently and cost-effectively protect data by administering usage and encryption policies, password restrictions, and more from a central console. These tasks are made easy with IronKeyEMS.

With SafeConsole central management server software, you can instantly gain complete and granular control over all of your encrypted USB flash drives and portable hard drives.  Additionally, you will achieve compliance for USB storage usage, while enjoying full control and audit.

SafeCrypt (formerly SkyCrypt) allows users to encrypt data seamlessly at their desktop, and as a result, only encrypted data is synced to the cloud. Even if your cloud service provider is hacked at root level or your personal login is compromised, your files are safe, secure and impenetrable.

DataLocker is committed to helping you protect your most sensitive data, at your desktop, on the go and in the cloud.  If you are interested in receiving an evaluation of your mobile security, or to try one of our products, please click here and an account executive will be in touch.  You may also email us at sales@datalocker.com.

 

Why FIPS validated products are so important

datalocker-dl3-fe-encrypted-external-hard-drive-datalocker-com

DataLocker has been providing cutting-edge, advance encryption solutions since 2011.  Our government and military clients are especially keen on protecting sensitive data and regularly look to us for solutions so they can securely transport, store and share data. Lost or stolen devices should not be equated with compromised data!

One of the typical requirements for encryption solutions is that they be FIPS validated.  FIPS stands for Federal Information Processing Standards.  These standards were developed by the National Institute of Standards for Technology (NIST) through the U.S. Department of Commerce as benchmarks for security in government pursuant to the Federal Information Security Management Act.

Several of our products are FIPS 140-2 validated.  This refers specifically to cryptographic modules, such as our hardware-encrypted external hard drives and USB flash drives. There are four levels of security within FIPS 140-2.  (Read more about FIPS 140-2 security levels here.)  At the highest level, level 4, the physical security mechanisms provide a complete envelope of protection around the cryptographic module with the intent of detecting and responding to all unauthorized attempts at physical access.

So what makes DataLocker FIPS validated products unique?  Our DataLocker DL3 FE is the only drive on the market that utilizes two pass cascading encryption using two different independently generated random keys for unsurpassed security. And the DataLocker H350 has earned end-to-end FIPS 140-2 Level 3 validation (certification #2359) for the entire H350 External Hard Drive – not just its encryption components- making it immune from attacks such as “BadUSB” or “Equation Group,” which also target other components of the device.  In addition, the following DataLocker products are FIPS validated:

How Organizations Benefit from Centrally Managed Secure USB Drives

According to research, 76% workers plug unknown USB drives into their company PCs, compromising their network security and introducing malware into the system. Besides, almost 20% of 1,000 UK office workers interviewed also revealed that they have lost unsecure USB drives containing sensitive business information. These statistics point towards the susceptibility of our sensitive data in USB drives to leakage and theft.
Hence, it only makes sense to secure data in the USB drives through secure, centrally managed systems. While secure USB automatically and instantly protects all stored data on the USB drive, SafeConsole central USB management enables complete control over the organization’s SafeConsoleReady Devices.

Organizational Benefits of Centrally Managed Secure USB Drives

Here is how organizations can use secure centrally managed USB drives to protect sensitive information:

  • Centrally managed USB drives ensure the security and availability of stored data for users, be it organizations or administrators.
  • They help USB drives evolve into a complete portable computing platform.
  • Enable users to share specific information, rather than all data present on the USB, with intended users.
  • They protect users from unintended USB malware during file sharing.
  • It is the best means of secure file sharing over the internet, especially where putting in place secure emailing may be difficult.
  • Enable organizations to comply with the safety and accountability standards, even for devices present outside the network perimeter or are offline. This is achieved by activating the device’s complete audit capacities for file changes and device actions.
  • Enable organizations to issue portable virtual workspaces for employees on their USB devices, in essence managed thumbtops – this offers a cost-effective and offers secure work environment for users within the protected workspace.
  • Central USB management also helps organizations improve their control over their private data and limits device wastage with detailed inventory of all managed devices.
