Why choose datAshur Personal?

Did you know that millions of flash drives are lost or stolen every year and this figure is rising? Have you ever considered the impact of losing your non-encrypted USB flash drive? Your data would be at the mercy of anyone who stumbles across it.
Information Commissioner's Office (ICO)
The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) now has the power to fine businesses and government bodies up to £500,000 for serious breaches of the Data Protection Act. This includes the loss of an unencrypted USB flash drive that contains client data. The ICO has been very clear in advising businesses and government bodies to encrypt all data that workers access, they also recognise that data which is encrypted and lost or stolen is not vulnerable to compromise.
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
The European Union will soon have the power to fine companies €20 million or 4% of their annual turnover if they are found to be in breach of the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The forthcoming legislation compels anyone who holds data on EU Citizens to implement adequate security measures to protect data from loss or theft.
Loss of confidential data can have a devastating effect on both businesses and consumers. It could lead to a hefty fine, the downfall of a business, embarrassment, job losses and adverse media attention. The iStorage datAshur Personal can protect you against all of this.

What is the difference between software and hardware encryption?

Software encryption:
  • Complex passwords can be cracked easily and quickly with a Brute Force Attack
  • Simple password cracking software is readily available on the internet, often free of charge
  • Software encryption is vulnerable to key loggers – where every key pressed is logged in either a software or hardware key logger
  • Software encryption can be corrupted by viruses
  • Software encryption is much slower when compared to hardware encryption
  • Software encryption needs to be installed on each computer that the external storage device is used on
  • Software encryption shares computers resources to encrypt data with other programs on the computer, making it only as safe as your computer.
Hardware encryption:
  • The datAshur Personal cannot be brute force attacked
  • The datAshur Personal is not vulnerable to keyloggers as the PIN is entered on the unit rather than the keyboard
  • The datAshur Personal does not require any software and can be used with Windows, Mac, Linux, Chrome, Android, Thin Clients and Embedded Systems.
  • Encryption is performed in real-time thus there is no speed degradation
  • No software or drivers are required
