Data Locker Announces New DL3 for Mac -- Industry's Most Powerful Personal Secure Storage Device for Apple Computers

DL3n for Mac Makes Secure Storage Simple and Easy

OVERLAND PARK, KS -- (Marketwire) -- 11/13/12 -- Data Locker Inc. (www.datalocker.com), a leading developer of encrypted data storage products, today announced the industry's most secure external hard drive for Apple Mac Computers with the release of the new Data Locker DL3 for Mac. The DL3 for Mac features an innovative touch-screen to enter a user's unique pin and up to 1 TB of storage with hardware-based 256-bit AES encryption for secure mobility that's simple to use.

The DL3 for Mac is the latest in a line of Data Locker branded encrypted external hard drives, joining the DL3 and DataLocker Enterprise, which are USB enabled for easy connection to a laptop or desktop computer running any operating system, with no software or drivers to install.

The DL3 for Mac requires no software to manage, encrypt or deploy the device. All encryption and management functions are performed at the device level. Data Locker's 256 bit AES XTS mode full drive encryption and patented virtual touchscreen keypad provides complete protection against brute force attacks. In addition, the DL3 for Mac is invisible to the Mac until it's connected to the device and has been authenticated by the user. Data on a lost or stolen drive cannot be accessed without the authentication input.

"The DL3 for Mac is the latest in our expanding family of award-winning secure storage drives," said Jay Kim, Founder and COO, Data Locker. "With so much growth in the Apple Mac platform, users who want to store and protect data locally instead of the cloud can look to Data Locker products as an ideal solution. A recent security breach with a writer from Wired Magazine provides that storage in the cloud isn't always the most secure option. The DL3 for Mac provides the security needed to protect data and applications while providing a physical place to store files. Like our other products, Data Locker has made the DL3 for Mac easy to use."

Additional features of DL3 for Mac include:

  • Super Speed USB 3.0 interface
  • 256 bit AES XTS mode crypto engine
  • Up to 1 TB capacity
  • Time Machine™-Ready for simple and secure back-ups
  • Absolutely no drivers or software required
  • PIN directly inputted on device
  • HFS+ or mac OS Extended Format
  • Strong Password rules
  • Self-Destruct mode to protect against Brute Force attack
  • Rapid key zeroization for secure redeployment
  • Multi-lingual user interface
  • Self-destruct mode for brute force attack defense
  • Randomized keypad to eliminate fingerprint-lifting and shoulder hacks
  • Tamper evident enclosure
  • Shock and drop resistant

Pricing and Availability
The DL3 for Mac pricing starts at $479.99 and will begin shipping November 2012. For more details on this product, go to www.datalocker.com.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
