Overview

  • Citadel C-ADV (Advanced) inside: Advanced security for Data at Rest (DAR)
  • Fortify your data security: Pre-boot authentication (PBA), multifactor authentication (MFA), and real-time protection—powered by Cigent—protects your data from ransomware, physical, and other cyber attacks
  • Fast, efficient PCIe/NVMe data transfer: NVMe SHIPS modules are the fastest and most robust way to transport and secure data in air-gapped environments or move large volumes of data for offloading or ingestion
  • Truly versatile storage: Use in any workstation, laptop, drone, device, or specialized vehicle equipped with a SHIPS receiving frame
  • Achieve government mandates: CSfC- and NIAP-listed, FIPS validated, and constitutes a complete CSfC layer in a two-layer solution
  • Prevent unauthorized file access with additional authentication: Consistently defeats zero-day ransomware and data theft for in-use data, whether they are accessed online or offline
  • Know who accessed data: Secure data access logs capture all insider threat activity
  • Automated threat response: Self-defending firmware protects against ransomware by making data invisible if the included Cigent software service is disabled
  • Retire or repurpose the Q80 module safely: Verified device erasure ensures every data block has truly been wiped
  • TAA compliant: Ensures you can meet regulatory requirements, maintain data security, and support ethical practices in technology procurement

The SHIPS storage module is the centerpiece of the SHIPS ecosystem, which is designed to bring robust removability and data transport at NVMe speeds between workstations, desktops, vehicles, aircraft, drones, and tactical systems. No longer do OEMs and integrators need to restrict themselves to legacy drive bay standards for removable NVMe storage.
