WISeKey & iStorage Team Up to Secure Your Digital Life
The COVID-19 pandemic has led to more and more employees working from home, thus spreading organizations’ sensitive data to unsecure places. The combination of WISeKey’s Common Criteria certified secure microprocessors and iStorage’s expertise to design certified secure data storage solutions will create safe digital environments for remote work
WISeKey International Holding Ltd., a leading global cybersecurity and IoT company, and iStorage, the award-winning and trusted global leader of hardware encrypted data storage and cloud encryption devices, announced they are partnering to design unique new solutions to protect sensitive data at rest or in transit and to offer ultimate security against hackers, detecting and responding to all forms of tampering.
According to a Gartner Research study published in April 2020, 74% of companies plan to permanently shift to more remote work post COVID-19. The risk of data loss surges among other cybersecurity issues when sensitive corporate data is stored out of the companies’ secure digital environment. This also raises a serious liability concern: who’s responsible in case of data loss? iStorage’s answer is to incorporate WISeKey’s best secure elements into robust data storage devices and secure both companies’ and employees’ digital lives.

For decades, WISeKey has been one of the very few recognized providers of hardware and software first-in-class digital security solutions for cybercrime protection, people and object identification and authentication. The company has been designing secure chips which are massively used in highly sensitive applications such as banking, national ID or PayTV. Therefore, most of these chips are certified to Common Criteria EAL5+, one of the highest government grade security certifications.
iStorage shares the same independent security certification approach for its award-winning HDD/SSD (diskAshur® range), Flash drives (datAshur® range) and cloud encryption modules (cloudAshur®). For instance, some of these devices are certified by the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) following FIPS 140-2 Level 3 standard, one of the strongest and globally recognized digital security levels. iStorage’s products are also included in the NATO Information Assurance Product Catalogue (NIACP) and certified to NATO Restricted Level. NCSC CPA and NLNCSA BSPA are other prestigious certifications received by iStorage.
