IDrive went big last week at the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, one of the largest tech conventions in the world. We shared a lot of advice on the latest solutions for securing data with many techies and industry leaders alike, and we were pleasantly surprised to meet those of our users who stopped by for some face-to-face time with IDrive. For those who couldn’t be there, here’s a recap of IDrive’s experience at CES.
Introducing IDrive Wi-Fi at the Big Event
We started the New Year with an exciting release, IDrive Wi-Fi, and thought there was no better place to unveil it than CES. When we showcased our new 1 to 2 TB wireless drive at the Sands Expo hall, which featured Smart home products and wearables, we were pleased by the enthusiasm folks showed while holding this sleek, smartphone-sized drive in their hands.
IDrive Wi-Fi is a personal cloud in your pocket, enabling you to quickly backup and restore data over a local connection, while keeping it safely encrypted in the cloud. All data stored on IDrive-Wifi is protected with military-grade 256-bit AES encryption along with an optional private key. We also allow you to backup an unlimited amount of computers, smartphones and tablets into one IDrive Wi-Fi device, which is compatible on a variety of devices such as PC, Mac, Android and iOS.
To meet everyone’s needs, we offer IDrive Wi-Fi in two convenient plans:
- 1TB IDrive Wi-Fi includes 1-year of 1TB IDrive Pro Personal for $99.99
- 2TB IDrive Wi-Fi includes 1-year of 1TB IDrive Pro Personal for $149.99

In the News
Our release of IDrive Wi-Fi at CES earned us a lot of attention from the press, which, of course, we humbly accepted. We owe a special thanks to TechCrunch for a great review of IDrive Wi-Fi that we feel captures its value well. We work hard to put out the best products and appreciate it when folks like TC give us positive feedback.
Quotes from CES
Finally, we want to close off our recap of the 2015 CES with a few quotes to sum up the experiences of those team members in attendance this year.
“All the smart home technology was really cool. I’m looking forward to controlling my A/C with my phone!” - Matthew Harvey, Communications Manager
“That wearable selfie-snapping drone is something straight out of science fiction, and I can’t wait to get my hands … well wrist on one!” - Shane Bingham, Business Development Manager
“Yeah, but the facial scanner for 3D Printers will make selfies a thing of the past!” - James, Support/QA team member
“The most interesting product for me at CES this year had to be DNA Vault, even if the concept is completely fictional at this point–something like backing up your DNA for future use, if there will be any. Imagine being able to restore your cells to the state you were in at age 20, when you are actually 70! Straight out of science fiction.” -Raghu Kulkarni, CEO - Raghu Kulkarni, CEO
“My favorite product was the solar-powered Luci lantern. It’s an inexpensive way to light up any area. No wires. No batteries. You just pick the color to match the surrounding.” - Maryam Mousavi, Property/Office Manager
Until next year, CES!
