ioSafe has introduced isolated cybersecurity capability in its ioSafe Solo G3 Secure external hard drive. The Solo G3 Secure drive contains a barrier between a computer and the ioSafe Solo G3 Secure storage device. This feature provides protection for a fireproof and waterproof reader.
“ioSafe continues to innovate to expand its industry-leading flame-retardant and waterproof data protection solutions,” said Randal Barber, CEO of ioSafe’s parent company, CDSG.
“Combined with their renowned and unparalleled recovery time, enterprises and government agencies, media companies and creative professionals can restore massive amounts of data without loss, even in the event of a disaster,” Barber continued. .
With the Solo G3 Secure, a user authorizes computer access to the self-encrypting drive using a smartphone app via Bluetooth. Without access authorization, the drive is invisible to the computer and the data is protected against cyberattacks as well as fire and water.
The authorized user must stay within 10 feet of the Solo G3 Secure or the connection to the computer is lost. Also, after ten incorrect or unauthorized entry attempts, the drive is cleared.
The ioSafe Solo G3 Secure contains a FIPS 140-2 Level 3 validated self-encrypting drive, which uses XTS-AES 256-bit hardware encryption on the entire drive.
The new ioSafe Solo G3 Secure is available in 2TB and 4TB options with USB 3.2 gen 1 (5 Gbps) connectivity. The devices include a two-year hardware warranty and two years of data recovery service.
