Portable data security... simplified

The DP27 Citadel K-SD storage module makes its data invisible so attackers can't even see it, meaning you can rest easy even if your module is lost or stolen. Citadel K Series enabled modules integrate pre-boot authentication (PBA), multifactor authentication, and hardware encryption into a complete, low cost solution that addresses federal requirements to secure Data at Rest (DAR). 

Keep it secret, keep it safe

Remove and lock away drives you don't want stolen, leaving no data on the workstation itself.

Move data the fast way

Swiftly move large volumes of data between laptops and desktops installed with DP27 receiving frames. No more waiting on relatively slow wireless transfer when you can hook your drive directly to your target machine.

A Complete CSfC Layer

All DIGISTOR FIPS SEDs—including Citadel K Series SEDs incorporated into DP27 storage modules—are listed on the NSA CSfC Component List for hardware full drive encryption, which allows DoD, Federal agencies, and critical infrastructure to protect mission critical and classified data using commercial solutions. Together with the built-in PBA which is also CSfC listed for hardware full drive encryption, a Citadel K Series SED constitutes a complete CSfC layer.

NIAP Compliant, TAA Compliant, and Common Criteria Certified

Citadel K-Series SEDs are NIAP-compliant (VID #11297), TAA compliant, and have been listed by NIST as FIPS 140-2 L2 certified storage devices with NIST Certificate #3926, ensuring they meet most stringent cybersecurity standards.

Reduce implementation risk

Validated, factory-integrated DIGISTOR SSDs are guaranteed to work with the DP27 receiving frame and take the guesswork and time out of qualifying hard drives for your project.

Years of daily use

The DP27 storage module's rugged, all-metal construction is rated for 50,000 insertion cycles. At 5 cycles per day that's over 27 years of reliable, working hardware! We accomplish this by using durable Hirose connectors and mounting recessed connectors on the frames to protect the host connection.

OS agnostic

Swapping drives works between different operating systems when both OS's support the format of the drive.
