“Data security and GDPR have been the watchwords of 2018 and as one of the world’s leading storage companies, Verbatim is focusing its attention on products providing reliable data protection at IFA this year,” said Hidetaka Yabe, President of Verbatim GmbH. “Personal or company confidential data getting into the wrong hands could have extremely serious consequences, so there should be no excuses from anyone handling sensitive data to not use encrypted devices.”
The products in the security range being demonstrated at IFA will include Verbatim Store’n’Go Hard Drives and SSDs with built-in keypad for password entry, the Freecom Tough Drive and the Verbatim Secure PRO USB. There will also be a USB storage key that uses biometric fingerprint security to unlock the encrypted device – users who are comfortable with fingerprint access on mobile devices can now use the same technology to store and access data on the encrypted device. All utilize military-grade AES 256-bit hardware encryption which is a level of security that has never been hacked.
Verbatim will even have laptop bags on display that include a RFID Secure Pocket that uses a special material with integrated metallic layers that prevent thieves from electronically scanning and stealing the information from the microchips embedded in your credit/bank cards and passports.
THUNDERBOLT 3 SSD
The company is also excited to showcase for the first time its new Thunderbolt 3 external SSD. The Freecom-branded device, mSSD Celeritas Thunderbolt 3, is the fastest drive of its kind that can deliver stunning transfer speeds of up to 2800 MB/s1, which is 20 times quicker than regular hard disk drives. As well as being superfast, the Thunderbolt port is versatile and uses the common USB-C connector to connect to most modern devices, making it ideal for video content creators as well as business and IT professionals where the transfer of large data files at high speed is critical.
