July 11, 2014 - PRLog -- The WEDG ( offers a unique solution, using 512 bit encryption with SSL to store data on a portable device in its users’ home or office. Data is only hosted on the WEDG which boast a 1 or 2 TB storage facility and doesn’t send to remote data centres without its owner’s express permission.

Designed by Manchester based entrepreneur Shehbaz Afzal and his team of security experts, The WEDG has passed intense enterprise level security testing.

The device is unique in offering enterprise grade file storage and syncing to enable fast access to private, user defined networks over a cleverly designed intuitive interface on desktop, iOS, Android, Windows and BlackBerry.

A highly personalised PGP security layer is accessed with a simple passphrase or PIN allowing any user to enjoy the same level of control over their data as a security expert. The WEDG hashtag #NTHSTP Nothing to Hide Something to Protect sums up the spirit of the WEDG campaign.

“Like many of us, when the Snowden report was published I felt instantly uneasy with the products that I had relied on and trusted with my digital privacy. That got me thinking that there has to be a better way to use the cloud and when I couldn’t find a solution, I decided to build one myself” - Shehbaz Afzal, CEO.

The WEDG stands apart from its competitors by not syncing files over remote networks. As threats like Game Over Zeus become more prevalent and security flaws become ever more evident in code, the need for a fast, secure integrated solution has never been greater.

Group calendars, email, address books, files & storage can be synced to the WEDG, ensuring that sensitive data never leaves the device and is not hosted on remote servers.

The WEDG has a diverse range of applications for individuals, families & businesses who are concerned about data privacy & who want to save time by organising their digital lives through a single interface.

Priced at £149 ( with a 1TB hard drive and free of monthly fees & subscriptions, The WEDG has been designed with wide scale adoption in mind. It is unique in having a replaceable hard drive, boasts multi domain support, and can function as part of a hybrid cloud solution.

The WEDG is ready for multiple markets from home users through small businesses and fintech startups, Shehbaz and his team listens and responds to them through their Kickstarter campaign, crowdsourcing development.

Shehbaz & his team received praise for keeping their code open, favouring long term growth over short term profit.

Going beyond home & office use The WEDG has the capability to store Bitcoins securely, eliminating the threat of bitcoin theft which has become begun to feature in the news recently.

Developers can submit apps for verification and use on The WEDG, widening the scope of its platform
