OVERLAND PARK, KS--(Marketwire - Nov 13, 2012) - Data Locker Inc. (www.datalocker.com), a leading developer of encrypted data storage products, today announced the industry's most secure external hard drive for Apple Mac Computers with the release of the new Data Locker DL3 for Mac. The DL3 for Mac features an innovative touch-screen to enter a user's unique pin and up to 1 TB of storage with hardware-based 256-bit AES encryption for secure mobility that's simple to use.
The DL3 for Mac is the latest in a line of Data Locker branded encrypted external hard drives, joining the DL3 and DataLocker Enterprise, which are USB enabled for easy connection to a laptop or desktop computer running any operating system, with no software or drivers to install.
The DL3 for Mac requires no software to manage, encrypt or deploy the device. All encryption and management functions are performed at the device level. Data Locker's 256 bit AES XTS mode full drive encryption and patented virtual touchscreen keypad provides complete protection against brute force attacks. In addition, the DL3 for Mac is invisible to the Mac until it's connected to the device and has been authenticated by the user. Data on a lost or stolen drive cannot be accessed without the authentication input.
"The DL3 for Mac is the latest in our expanding family of award-winning secure storage drives," said Jay Kim, Founder and COO, Data Locker. "With so much growth in the Apple Mac platform, users who want to store and protect data locally instead of the cloud can look to Data Locker products as an ideal solution. A recent security breach with a writer from Wired Magazine provides that storage in the cloud isn't always the most secure option. The DL3 for Mac provides the security needed to protect data and applications while providing a physical place to store files. Like our other products, Data Locker has made the DL3 for Mac easy to use."

- Super Speed USB 3.0 interface
