Manchester, UK – October 10, 2016 – Apricorn, a leading designer and manufacturer of data security products for business, military and government, has announced today an exclusive technology partnership with Cyberpol Solutions (BVBA). The partnership enables Cyberpol Solutions to provide vital cyber risk management solutions to its clients, addressing the secure data storage needs of members of the European Government and law enforcement agencies. The integration with Apricorn allows public sector organisations to gather critical evidence during cyber investigations following an attack and to confidently store and share information on Apricorn - Cyberpol Solutions devices.

Apricorn’s award-winning, FIPS-certified, hardware-encrypted storage devices include the Aegis Secure Key product range of USB flash drives and the Aegis Padlock product range of external hard drives and solid state drives that are affordable, robust, and easy to use.

Cyberpol Solutions distributes products sanctioned by CYBERPOL and that are recommended for government and law enforcement across the globe. The ever growing need for securing information and intelligence on cyber security threats is now met by the military-grade secure devices offered by Cyberpol Solutions, providing organisations, companies and government departments the capability to store and share data securely and to meet stringent government compliance legislation and regulations.

Jon Fielding, Managing Director, Apricorn EMEA said: “CYBERPOL’s international security efforts are focused on a wide array of technical environments and require secure collaboration between multiple entities.  Apricorn’s family of cross-platform, PIN protected secure storage devices with unparalleled compatibility and data security was their ideal choice.  Cyberpol Solutions distributes Apricorn products to enable organisations to seamlessly encrypt and store their data. Using combined technology from both Cyberpol Solutions and Apricorn, organisations can focus on reducing their most immediate security risks and, as a result, improve their overall security posture.”

“This is a technical partnership where we can work together as separate companies to develop our products and ensure that they meet the highest standards internationally. This advanced secure device technology makes this partnership an indispensable tool to continue to meet the market needs in the rapidly changing world of data security,” commented Wouter Van Beirendonck, Managing Director - Cyberpol Solutions (BVBA). “The partnership and integration provides customers with a new approach to understanding their risk,” he added.
