(Oslo, 1 June 2018) Hiddn Solutions ASA (HIDDN) has entered into an agreement with the US based companies SecureData Inc., a Los Angeles based leading data-recovery company and a provider of hardware encrypted storage solutions, and ClevX, LLC, a Seattle based IP/Technology development and licensing company that is focused on the Security/Mobility markets and applications. The partnership will introduce a range of products and services, all using technologies licensed from ClevX, that will be sold and distributed under the Hiddn brand in Europe and in the Middle East.

“We are pleased to announce an important partnership for Hiddn, as we believe the new products will complement Hiddn’s current product offering.

The product range will be complimentary to Hiddn’s existing high-end offering, and will mainly target business customers looking for an “easy-to-use” and “easy-to-manage” secure data storage solution. The product range includes hardware-encrypted memory sticks and external portable storage devices with different methods of user-authentication, remote management, antivirus software, and back-up options for secure storage in the cloud when required.

“With SecureData and ClevX, we are establishing a strong global partnership within secure portable data storage solutions. We look forward to combining Hiddn’s long lasting track-record of developing encryption products with the distinctive competencies of SecureData and ClevX,” says Wollebekk.
