Crypto Erase has been added due to "its lightning speed," said the recent press release, informing possible customers that they can initiate a software or hardware wipe of the whole drive locally or remotely, with all data being erased within a single second.

 

These drives are also self-encrypting, ensuring that a stolen drive will completely lock out access to unauthorized users, with Foremay further providing "optional OPAL 2.0 features harnessed with an enhanced authorization key and encryption key authentication and verification process." This further OPAL 2.0 addition means that a thief's computer will be completely unable to recognize the stolen drive, even when the correct authentication key is provided.
