Middle East, 13 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 MiniStation™ with hardware encryption USB hard drive.


The new lightweight and portable storage solution offers a compact storage solution for the mobile professional and tech-savvy consumer.

The new Buffalo MiniStation™ securely stores, backs-up and transports digital images, music and other files, saving valuable space on a PC’s hard drive. With built-in Hardware Encryption, the MiniStation™ now securely protects this data while its shock protection cushions it against accidental knocks. The Full Disk Encryption option with robust AES256bit standard encrypts all data as soon as it is written to the drive, protected by a password.

“Following our recent announcement on the DriveStation™ with hardware encryption, this new MiniStation™ helps the mobile consumer especially the executives that travel,” shared Jasem Al Roomi, Director at Buffalo Advantec FZCO. “Portable, secure storage. As a travelling executive, this is a boon because its so convenient. Buffalo’s MiniStations are quite popular in the Middle East and we foresee a good response from the security-conscious consumer.”

Other features include SecureLockManagerEasy™ that automatically remembers the password while Memeo™ AutoSync software automatically syncs the MiniStation™ with the user’s PC or Mac, ensuring backed-up files are always kept up to date.

Additional features include:

  • Shock Resistance body to protect your data from the knocks and shocks of daily life
  • Flat, wrap around cable management system, integrated into the body – so you will never lose the cable again
  • Includes Picasa software from Google™ that allows you to easily organise and edit digital photos and movies
  • Easy to use and set up out of the box, no drivers or power supply required
  • Connects via USB to any PC or Mac
