Secure/Encrypted SSDs

Protecting Data at Rest

Securing Data at Rest (DAR) is not simply a best practice, it’s a Federal requirement. Our array of TAA-compliant SSDs, including our new Citadel SSDs, as well as our TCG Opal and FIPS-certified SSDs, makes DAR security easy to achieve and affordable for the DoD, civilian agencies, and those in critical infrastructure sectors.

    Citadel™ SSDs: Secure your DAR

    Citadel FIPS-certified self-encrypting SSDs are powered by CipherDrive™ and are the only SSDs to integrate pre-tested multi-factor authentication and pre-boot authentication (PBA) in low-cost, easily deployed, common form factors–perfect for your Data at Rest security solutions.

    FIPS-Certified SSDs

    FIPS 140-2 Level 2 hardware encryption ensures that the firmware integrity, encryption technology and physical security of the SSD all meet the requirements set forth by the Federal Information Processing Standard of the National Institute of Standards & Technology (NIST).

    TCG Opal

    The Opal Storage Specification is a set of security specifications used for applying hardware-based encryption to storage devices. The spec includes:

    • SED AES 256-bit encryption
    • On-device encryption
    • Pre-boot Authentication (Shadow MBR)
