Foremay, Inc., a leader of technology innovation in rugged solid state drives and one of the world's Top SSD companies, today released its Self Encrypting Drive (SED) enabled SSD. It uses hardware encryption technologies to encrypt and decrypt every single bit of data during the write and read process so that data on it is secured. In addition, the Foremay SED SSD offers a crypto erase feature that can instantaneously render all data scrambled, scattered and useless.
"Information security on SSD drives has become increasingly important to all users, particularly in government, defense, financial and medical industries," said Jack Winters, Foremay's CTO and co-founder. "Foremay's SED SSD protects the drives and the data from unauthorized access by means of 256-bit AES hardware encryption that complies with TCG OPAL 2.0. Users can also preset a maximum number of failed access attempts that will automatically trigger crypto erase."
The crypto key for self encrypting drives can be set and kept outside a Foremay's SED SSD only, so that even if the drive is stolen, there is no way to hack the key, let alone access the drive. Furthermore, with optional OPAL 2.0 features harnessed with an enhanced authorization key and encryption key authentication and verification process, when a drive is removed from its designated host computer, the drive will not be recognized and cannot be accessed by another computer even if a user has the correct authorization key.
The unique advantage of crypto erase is its lightning speed - it takes only a second to crypto erase of an entire Foremay SED SSD. In addition, users can initiate a crypto erase by software or hardware method, locally or remotely.
