2023 was a great year for the DIGISTOR product line, marked by significant advancements in our secure storage technology. In March 2023, the DIGISTOR FIPS-certified self-encrypting drives were validated to the Common Criteria standard, a testament to our commitment to global security standards. This listing by the National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP) is critical to many government and ministry secure storage requirements. Furthermore, the inclusion of these drives on the NSA’s CSFC list has been pivotal, opening new doors in high-security sectors and reinforcing our role in safeguarding sensitive data.
Later in the year, the introduction of the 7.68 TB M.2 22110 enterprise SSD and the 30.72 TB U.3 enterprise SSD marked two more leaps forward. These groundbreaking products, designed for tactical edge and enterprise applications, exemplify our dedication to combining high capacity, durability, and robust security. The TCG Opal compliance of these drives further cements our position as a leader in secure data storage solutions, catering to a diverse range of high-stakes environments.
Refining and Enhancing Our Product Range
In 2023, DIGISTOR refined our product offerings to better meet the evolving needs of our customers. The strategic decision to focus on the Citadel™ C Series in our secure, pre-boot authentication (PBA) SSDs marked a significant shift toward more advanced, feature-rich solutions. The C Series is characterized by pre- and post-boot security features, representing our commitment to delivering leading-edge data security technology.
Even though we have streamlined our Citadel offerings to focus our resources and expertise on a product line that offers the most value to our customers, we will continue to support our existing K-series customers. Our approach demonstrates a balance between maintaining customer loyalty and embracing technological advancements, a principle that will continue to guide us into 2024 and beyond.
In the second half of 2023, we introduced the 7.68 TB M.2 22110 enterprise SSD and the 30.72 TB U.3 enterprise SSD. These first-of-its-kind, cutting-edge products, designed for tactical edge and enterprise applications, exemplify our dedication to combining high capacity, durability, and robust security to anticipate customer requirements. Furthermore, the TCG Opal compliance of these drives addresses the need to encrypt data for use in high-stakes environments.
Building a Stronger Presence
2023 was a pivotal year for DIGISTOR in terms of partner and customer engagement, with our active participation in industry events like the Flash Memory Summit, the DoD SAP IT & Cybersecurity Summit, and the DoDIIS Worldwide Conference. These events provided us with platforms to showcase our advanced products and deepen our connections within the industry. Conversations with customers and partners at these venues led to insights that have shaped our product development and market strategies.
