Middle East, 8 September 2009 – Buffalo Technology, a global leader in the design, development and manufacturing of storage, wireless networking and memory solutions, has announced the availability of its new Buffalo DriveStation™ HD-CXU2 with Hardware Encryption.


The new USB desktop Hard Drive offers a secure external storage solution in a shock resistant chassis with eco friendly features allowing users to securely back-up and store digital images, music, business documents and other files without taking up space on their PC’s hard drive.

The new DriveStation™ with Hardware Encryption is available in two modes of Encryption. Non-Encryption mode allows data to be viewed by any computer connected to the drive while the Full Disk Encryption mode with its robust AES256bit standard of encryption encrypts all data as soon as it is written to the drive, protected by a password that gives users the peace of mind that their data is secure and hidden.

“We are seeing more and more people work from home and for these professionals, security is essential,” said Jasem Al Roomi, Director at Buffalo Advantec FZCO. “Buffalo Technology is very focused on providing the right tools to its customers. The new DriveStation fulfils the needs our users have for greater storage capacities and security.”

The new DriveStation features include SecureLockManagerEasy™ which automatically remembers passwords, the Ecomanager feature that spins down the hard drive when idle, saving energy and the auto-power on/off switch automatically powers down the drive when the PC is shut down.

Additional features include:
•    Memeo™ AutoSync backup software to protect files
•    Picasa software from Google™ to organise and edit digital photos and movies
•    Easy to use and set up out of the box, no drivers needed
•    Connects via USB to any PC or Mac
