StorCard was founded in 2001 on the growing awareness that individuals lacked a convenient solution to securely and conveniently transport, access and store digital information. Several trends underscore this need:
- The growing number of mobile and portable devices (PDA's, gaming, portable music, smart telephones, tablet PCs) with increased processing power to utilize personal information
- The continued increase in digital information
- The increasing number of incompatible storage technologies that lack security and bind information to a particular application or device.
- The increased concerns with information security for consumers, enterprises and content owners
