Pro.Tech Sign Up as Partner of the Patented and Highly Certified [hiddn]™ Full Disk Hardware Encryption Solutions -- Meeting Requirements for Protection of Data at Rest for Both Public and Private Sectors!

BOLOGNA, ITALY--(Marketwire - October 4, 2010) -  Pro.Tech and High Density Devices (HDD) have joined forces to make available to the marketplace the highly certified, cost-effective, and user-friendly [hiddn]™ products. Pro.Tech dedicates itself at providing to the market products and services of high technological quality and innovation. With its experienced and service-minded staff located in offices in Italy, Germany and Saudi Arabia, Pro.Tech delivers a diverse selection of security solutions to the end user, making for an ideal partner to deliver and support High Density Devices' unique and exclusive [hiddn]™ solutions.

Today's mobile workforce stores sensitive, financial, personal, corporate proprietary, and/or medical data on increasingly smaller storage devices, moving these between locations, e.g. from office to home office, making protection of all data stored of vital importance. As the majority of data stored on external storage media and on laptops remains unprotected, the loss or theft of this data could have devastating financial consequences for an organization, as well as damage market reputation and value beyond repair. With the portfolio of [hiddn]™ products, Pro.Tech and HDD are confident the market will finally have been presented a versatile and highly secure tool for preventing such dramatic damages.

"The marketplace is increasingly demanding rigorously tested, highly certified, user friendly, and cost effective data protection - all in one. HDD and its [hiddn]™ hardware encryption technology represents the new approach to data protection, adding to our versatile portfolio of security solutions", Marketing Director of Pro.Tech, Ms Cinzia Genarelli, states, continuing "and we are thrilled to partner with them to present this to our markets." "We are very proud to have signed up the agreement with High Density Devices (HDD)" states Mr Ugo Vittori, Managing Director of Pro.Tech "and we are confident that together we will satisfy all our market needs in terms of security and data protection".

With its portfolio of FIPS 140-2 Level 3 and Common Criteria EAL4+ certified products, in addition to its approval for protection of data classified NATO RESTRICTED, [hiddn]™ caters for any data protection need!

One example, is the newly released [hiddn]™ Crypto Adapter which provides encryption of any USB-connected storage media, supporting any media capacity, making it a perfect solution for encryption of both memory sticks and external hard drives for backup purposes. The Crypto Adapter is just one of many [hiddn]™ products providing robust and accredited solutions for data protection on laptops, desktops, external hard drives, memory sticks, server environments, as well as for specially designed solutions, such as CCTV footage and UAV units.

HDD CSO, Mr. Trond Erik Bogno, announced that "We are very satisfied with signing the agreement with Pro.Tech; and following this agreement will be an increase in our sales and marketing efforts globally; coinciding with our strong presence at this year's InfoSecurity Europe Expo in Utrecht, Holland November 3-4 2010. We are confident that Pro.Tech's extensive network and professional delivery will provide users with the data protection they need."
