From insider threat to increasingly sophisticated malware and stricter privacy laws, government contractors and agencies have never had a greater need to protect sensitive information. Fully encrypted storage technology from DataLocker enables government agencies of all sizes to secure their confidential data and critical systems.
1. Protect your sensitive information
A security breach at a government agency can have severe consequences—from exposing the Personally Identifiable Information of thousands of citizens to the disclosure of sensitive national Security information. DataLocker employs 256-bit AES encryption to protect sensitive data against even the most sinister threats, including malware, brute force attacks, keyloggers, and even shoulder hacks. In addition, the DataLocker Enterprise is the only external hard drive on the market with FIPS 140-2 validations for the entire device as well as its crypto-engine. Additional features give you the power to protect your information from anywhere. For example, should your drive fall into the wrong hands, a “self-destruct” mode zeroizes the data once you trigger the destruct routine.
2. Protect your clients’ Information
For government contractors, protecting your clients’ sensitive data is not only a requirement but also a business necessity. The same strong encryption and advanced features that protect data on the agency level also protect your clients’ data. In addition to securing backups and other data on- site, DataLocker technology also offers a simple and secure way to transport sensitive data outside of facilities—even across borders.
3. Meet and maintain compliance with SOX, HIPPA, DHS, and other regulatory requirements
Keeping up with the latest regulatory requirements for protecting sensitive patient private information,financial data and other
protected information can seem like chasing a moving target. DataLocker technology makes it simple to ensure that you are in compliance— whether it is backups or information intransit between machines or between facilities. The strong 256-bit AES encryption meets the requirements of current privacy regulations. Deploying DataLocker drives offers you an instant, cost-effective way to comply with HIPPA, SOX, DHS Initiatives, NRC, GLB and any other directives that requires data encryption.
4. Achieve a safe harbor from data breach reporting requirements
California SB 1386,HIPPA and other privacy laws around the country typically mandate encryption of data at rest. According to the Ponemon Institute, the average organizational cost of a data breach in 2010 was $7.2 million, or $214 per compromised record.This
legal and remediation cost is in addition to the damage caused to an organization’s reputation by reporting a breach.Should a DataLocker drive containing protected private data become stolen or lost in transit, DataLocker technology gives you the ability to prove that the data was encrypted at the time of loss. This capability can offer you safe harbor from the data breach reporting requirements in these privacy laws.
5. DataLocker technology is easy to use
DataLocker drives are simple and easy to use.You operate them with a touch simple touch screen interface,and you do not need to install any software or drivers.You simply plug a DataLocker drive into your PC, enter your password on the touchscreen,and you are ready to work.
6. DataLocker drives work on all computers
DataLocker drives are platform-independent.You can use them interchangeably with Windows,Mac,or Linux based machines.This makes it easy and cost effective to transport data among agencies and contractors, between contractors and partners,or between different types of computers within an organization.
7. DataLocker Is easy to deploy
With nothing to install or configure,minimal learning curve,and device independence enabling use across heterogeneous environments, DataLocker drives are fast and easy to deploy.
