At NAB in Las Vegas, Melanie Kubasik, Sales Director for iStorage, discussed their options for securely storing your data whether it is on the desktop or on one of their portable devices. Their solutions encrypt the data on their device, accessible by entering in a numeric code. For the enterprise, the device can have both a user and an administrator password. If the password is entered incorrectly too often, the device securely deletes the data. Melanie talks about the form factors and colors available, how the security engages for the portable models, and demonstrates how the access process works.
