OVERLAND PARK, KA--(Marketwired - Nov 19, 2014) - DataLocker (datalocker.com), a leading developer of encryption solutions, today announced the availability of DL3 FIPS Edition (FE), a new, FIPS 140-2 validated, military grade 256-bit AES encrypted, high capacity, external hard drive. Built on the proven foundation and success of its predecessor, the DataLocker DL3 FE provides unmatched usability and security with blazing USB 3.0 speeds and unrivaled dual crypto processors.

Individuals are storing record amounts of data and files on external hard drives for storage and transport. While these devices offer great convenience and portability, the potential for data theft, loss or compromise is high. DL3 FE solves this problem by adding a layer of military-strength encryption to storage devices that is easily secured and managed by the user without installing complicated software.

"With DL3 FE, data is fully encrypted the instant that it is saved and with the highest level of cascading dual encryption," said Jay Kim, founder and COO, Data Locker. "Data undergoes two passes of 256 bit encryption, the first pass being in XTS mode, the second pass in FIPS 140-2 validated CBC mode. Locked down and secured, every single bit of data on DL3 FE is double encrypted for added security."

Extremely easy to use and platform independent, users simply access their data with a personal passcode on the device keypad. All functions are performed on the device fully independent from the host computer and can be managed for quick deployment with DataLocker Configurator.

Advanced Features of DL3 FE include:

  • Hardware based encryption - dedicated dual 256-bit AES crypto engines in XTS and CBC modes
  • Rapid key zeroization for secure redeployment
  • Self-Destruct mode for protection against brute force attacks
  • Patented touch-screen display and user-friendly interface
  • Rotating keypad for mitigation of surface analysis and shoulder surfing
  • Supports two roles: Administrator to set policy, read-only mode, and recover data and User to access data
  • Strong Password Rule (Non Sequential, Repeating, Alpha + Num, Min 7 characters)
  • DL-Link can pair DL3 FE to allow access only on specified computers for added security
  • Auto-Lock automatically times out the device when idle
  • Read-Only feature can restricts users from overwriting or altering contents of the drive

DL3 FE by DataLocker is available immediately, priced starting at $369.99. For more details on this product, please visit datalocker.com/store.
