OVERLAND PARK, KS--(Marketwire - Dec 18, 2012) - Data Locker, Inc. a leading developer of encrypted storage solutions, announced that a combination of new compliance requirements and a distrust by users of cloud based storage providers has combined to propel record sales for the company in 2012. Executives see this trend continuing into the new year based on the company's sales pipeline.
Data Locker, which is privately-held, reports a substantial increase in sales for 2012. With days remaining in the year's Fourth Quarter, year-to-date sales figures show the company increased its sales by over 75 percent over 2011. Contributing to the sales growth are amplified reseller agreements and a surge in distributor sales volume along with newly attained government interests are essential agents to Data Locker's sales increases.
"There's no question that 2012 has been a fantastic year for Data Locker," said Jay Kim, President, Data Locker. "Demand for our secure storage hard drives has grown dramatically in key federal government, financial services, legal and small business markets. Compliance requirements are a driving factor and there's still considerable distrust of storing data in the Cloud. We see this trend continuing into the New Year. As a result, we've grown dramatically this year, nearly doubling the number of employees to accommodate our planned growth."
Along with recent product launches such as the DL3 for Mac and Sentry Encrypted Flash Drive, Data Locker continues to grow and invest in product development.
A key highlight of 2012 includes receiving a new patent by the United States Patent and Trademark Office that covers Data Locker's methods for securing data by authenticating users with an embedded key input unit to control access to high speed encrypted external hard drives.
Kim says customers are finding it simple to secure their data with Data Locker's award-winning, FIPS validated, and patented external hard drives that offer military grade encryption requiring no software or drivers. Drive reliability and bandwidth limits suggests cloud storage systems are not the optimal solution for every organization, which gives DataLocker an advantage by offering high capacity, platform independent encryption at your fingertips.
