Microsemi offers secure data solid-state drive
Microsemi has introduced a secure, encrypted 2.5-inch SATA solid state drive (SSD) designed to protect data in commercial, banking/financial, medical, industrial and smart grid applications.
Called SECURRE-Stor, the SSD features a 100 millisecond fast-erase capability, which is followed by a full hardware erase in less than 10 seconds.
This makes it suitable for secure laptops, automated teller machines and other systems currently using hard disk drives that may need to be physically destroyed to prevent data from getting into the wrong hands.
It meets (FIPS) AES 256 encryption certification and is available in 64- and 128-gigabyte storage densities.
“SECURRE-Stor is addressing needs for secure SSDs beyond strong encryption in applications where protecting data is considered critical,” said BJ Heggli, vice president of strategic development and assistant general manager for Microsemi.
