In April, and for the third year running, Origin Storage attended the InfoSecurity Europe exhibition at Earls Court, London. InfoSecurity has become synonymous with leading data security specialists, and this year saw almost 300 exhibitors setup for the 3 day event. Over the course of 3 days over 10,000 people ebbed and flowed through the venue inspecting the new products and services on offer.
Origin took the decision to invest on a larger stand this year to accommodate the increase in visitors to our stall along with our ever-growing product portfolio. Our unique forward-thinking security solutions tend to generate a keen amount of interest, and providing the means for everyone to get hands on experience with them was high on our agenda.
Visitors were pleased to learn that the Data locker 2™, previosuly seen at last years event, had sucessfully passed certification of FIPS 140-2. With this government/military grade certification, and its unique security features, the Data locker 2™ will now appeal to a larger audience on a global scale.
We were also pleased to announce a FIPS 140-2 version of our hard drive upgrade solution, the EnigmaSED™. Available as a replacement for standard computer hard drives – it provides a quick way to replace non-encrypted drives with a full hardware encrypted hard drive in three easy steps. Its pre-boot authentication system stops unathorised users from starting any system – a gigantic must in the world of mobile workers!
On show was our newest network attached storage device the N16000, capable of storing upto 48TB of data storage across a multitude of different network infustructures such as NAS, iSCSI, SMB, NFS, AFP, FTP. With speeds suparsing 1000MBps/1GBps and the ability to encrypt RAID volumes, the N16000 is perfect for Enterprise customers looking to add large amounts of physical and virtual storage across their networks.
Our big surprise to everyone was that over the last year, work had secretly pushed ahead with the Data Locker III. A large investment of $1.2m had been pumped into the project to ensure that the successor to Data Locker II was as cutting edge as it was good to look at. Sporting the new USB 3 interface, capacities currently up to 1TB, its user friendly backlit touch screen, and its robust ability to encrypt data on the fly, the Data Locker 3 generated much talk around the show.
We will also be exhibiting at next year’s show; if you are keen to attend you can register for the event free of charge.
