A very common and easy way to transfer data between computing devices are the use of mobile drives. However these devices pose a great vulnerability on data leakage. More than 20% of mobile drives procured by enterprises are reported to be lost every year. More than half of the enterprises that are subject to such a loss confirms that the lost devices contained sensitive data and they had multiple such instances. Because of that, most enterprises develop policies avoiding such devices; however these policies are always forced for exceptions on urgent cases.
Mobile drives with onboard hardware encryption provides a solution for the problem. Devices equipped with a keypad or fingerprint reader for authentication encrypt data on the fly using 256-bit AES XTS algorithm and avoid access to the data in case the drive falls into unauthorized hands.
Such devices also helps organizations to comply with GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) issued by the EU. Performa Bilgi Teknolojileri provides solutions to its customers with Apricorn solutions; the market leader in encrypted portable drives.
