Address critical data governance and privacy requirements

This DP25 is FIPS 140-2 L2 Certified by NIST, the same standard used by the U.S. government to keep data secure to meet requirements imposed by CMMC, HIPAA, GDPR, GLBA, PCI-DSS, and CCPA.

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 with 9.5mm optical drive bays. No more waiting on relatively slow wireless transfer when you can hook your drive directly to your target machine.

Reduce implementation risk

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

Years of daily use

The DP27'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.
