Data Locker Granted New Security Patent

Patent covers Data Locker's methods for securing data

OVERLAND PARK, Kan., July 11, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Data Locker, a manufacturer of innovative data security solutions, announced that on May 23, 2012, it was granted a new patent by the United States Patent and Trademark Office: U.S. Patent # 8,185,709 "SECURITY SYSTEM FOR EXTERNAL DATA STORAGE APPARATUS AND CONTROL METHOD THEREOF." The patent covers Data Locker's methods for securing data, authenticating users with an embedded key input unit and controlling access to high speed data storage devices such as encrypted external hard drives and flash drives. A key feature of DataLocker's encrypted portable hard drives is its integrated touch screen display which allows users to enter their passwords directly into the device. By bypassing the attached computer entirely, security threats associated with malware or key loggers and operating system compatibility issues are completely eliminated.
