CRU Data Security Group and Digistor Join Forces
CRU Data Security Group (CDSG), a trusted provider of data security, data transport, and disaster-proof data storage devices, announced its merger with Digistor, a leading manufacturer of secure solid-state drives and removable storage solutions. Adding Digistor to the CDSG family of brands expands and strengthens secure data storage offerings for PC and enterprise OEMs, government agencies, and defense and military customers.
Both CDSG and Digistor are well-known providers of secure data storage solutions: CDSG for its CRU removable drive components and Digistor for its industrial-grade, encrypted SSDs, and VaultDisk removable drive components. In addition to uniting product offerings, CDSG will combine sales and go-to-market efforts, manufacturing capabilities, R&D, and engineering to uniquely position the company to develop and deliver secure data storage for its shared customer segments.

“Together, CDSG and Digistor can better serve government customers concerned with securing data at rest or during transport,” CDSG President and CEO Randal Barber said. “Our combined 50+ years of expertise and industry leadership position us for accelerated growth in the rapidly evolving world of trusted and secure data storage. We’re thrilled to join forces to create a shared strategic vision and energized commitment to customer success.”
The two companies have complementary product offerings with little overlap, creating a solution that spans laptops, desktops, workstations and into the enterprise and defense storage ecosystems. Each company manufactures components that can be paired with the other’s products to deliver complete, qualified data storage solutions for security-conscious organizations. CDSG will optimize its new SHIPS NVMe ecosystem and CRU removable drives with Digistor SSDs, and Digistor’s product lineup adds net-new offerings for laptops and desktops to enhance CRU’s existing offerings.
Additionally, integrating manufacturing, technology development resources, and third-party sales networks will drive more efficient and effective service for CDSG’s entire range of customers—spanning defense and other military agencies, small and medium-sized businesses, entertainment, and data centers.
“Together our expertise is a force multiplier for innovation of physical data security and data transport solutions,” Digistor President Lawrence Friss said. “We’re excited to continue and expand our commitment to delivering highly secure data storage across existing and new applications.”
