This year’s DoDIIS Worldwide Conference was set in Portland, Oregon during an unusual dry spell for this time of year. The conference brought together the brightest from the Department of Defense, Intelligence Community, academia, and the tech industry. The theme, ‘Chaos to Clarity: Leveraging Emerging Technologies,’ underscored the importance of technological advancements in shaping modern intelligence and cybersecurity strategies. 

The CDSG presence at the conference featured our secure data solutions from the DIGISTOR and CRU product lines. Our DIGISTOR SSDs and CRU removable drives are synonymous with reliable and secure data storage solutions in the military and intelligence agencies here in the United States as well as in NATO countries.

The event provided an excellent platform for us to demonstrate our newest advancements and to engage with current and potential partners and customers.

Showcasing Groundbreaking Technologies and Solutions

One product that drew attention was the pioneering DIGISTOR 7.68 TB M.2 22110 enterprise SSD, which represented a leap forward in secure data storage technology. This product stood out not only for its remarkable storage capacity but also for its suitability in demanding operational environments. Its integration into compact Dell servers designed for tactical edge use highlighted the drive’s practical application in challenging conditions, such as mobile data centers or temporary command posts.

Further emphasizing our technological leadership, our presence on the NSA CSfC component list became a central topic of discussion at the conference. This prestigious listing underlines the drives’ capability to handle highly classified data securely, aligning with the most stringent security standards required by defense and intelligence agencies. This recognition is a testament to our commitment to providing solutions that meet the critical needs of our customers in the most sensitive environments.

The interest in our products was not just limited to their specifications. Conversations often veered into discussions about the evolving landscape of cybersecurity and data protection, with many attendees keen to understand how our technologies could be integrated into their existing systems. This was an opportunity for us to showcase not just our products, but also our expertise in creating comprehensive, secure data solutions tailored to the unique challenges faced by military and intelligence operations.In all, our presence at the DoDIIS Worldwide Conference underscored DIGISTOR’s role as a vanguard in the field of secure data storage solutions. Our innovations are not just about creating high-capacity, secure storage devices; they are about shaping the future of data security in an increasingly complex and threat-prone digital world.
