(London, Nov 2019), iStorage, the award winning and trusted global leader of hardware encrypted data storage and cloud encryption devices is delighted to announce that their cloudAshur – cloud encryption module has won the Security Innovation of the Year award at the UK IT Industry Awards 2019.

The UK IT Industry Awards sets the performance benchmark in IT, recognising exceptional people, projects and technology innovation. It is one of the longest established and most prestigious awards of its kind.

Introducing the iStorage cloudAshur:

The patented cloudAshur is the perfect solution for any organisation wanting to securely encrypt, store, share, manage and monitor data in any cloud. The UK designed and developed device is a revolutionary cloud data storage security module that eliminates the vulnerabilities that exist with cloud platforms, such as lack of control and unauthorised access.

The cloudAshur solution consists of:

The cloudAshur PIN authenticated USB module, which encrypts all data in transit and at rest with a FIPS-certified randomly generated AES 256-bit encrypted encryption key, which is stored and protected within a dedicated iStorage secure microprocessor (Common Criteria EAL 4+ Ready).

The iStorage patented KeyWriter software enables the required number of cloudAshur modules to be cloned with the same encrypted encryption key allowing real-time, ultra-secure collaboration with authorised users regardless of location.

The iStorage cloudAshur Remote Management Console (RMC) gives you full control of all cloudAshur hardware security modules deployed within your organisation, offering features such as the ability to disable or reset (remote kill) users’ cloudAshur modules, view user logs, display user location, restrict the time and location each user can use their cloudAshur module and a host of additional features.

The cloudAshur solution can also be used to:

• Securely encrypt data stored in any Cloud platform
• Securely encrypt and share email attachments with authorised users
• Securely encrypt and share large files using file sharing software such as WeTransfer with authorised users
• Securely encrypt and store data on a PC and/or MAC
• As the next generation remote managed data storage solution

John Michael, CEO of iStorage said:

{{We are extremely honoured to have won such a prestigious award for our cloudAshur solution. cloudAshur is the answer to the biggest issue associated with the cloud; that is data security.
Winning such an award reaffirms our message that the cloudAshur solution is undoubtedly the most secure way of protecting data stored in the Cloud.}}

As cloud computing is still in its infancy, security of data is a concern for 9 out of 10 cybersecurity professionals1 and coupled with the fact that cybercrime is being hailed as ‘the greatest threat to every company in the world’2, there has never been a more appropriate time for the cloudAshur.
