Toshiba Announces Cryptographic-erase and Self-encryption Features for New Enterprise SSD and Mobile HDD

New security features to help companies better manage sensitive information in datacenters, cloud computing and client computing applications

TOKYO--()--Toshiba Corporation (TOKYO:6502) today announced new enterprise SAS solid state drives (SSD), mobile SATA hard disk drives (HDD), including self-encrypting drive (SED) models in both product categories, and new enterprise-grade SATA SSD supporting cryptographic-erase. Select drives will start to ship in January with other models following later in the first quarter.

PX02SMQ and PX02SMU series enterprise SED (eSED) deliver government-grade Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) 256-bit self-encryption and offer Trusted Computing Group (TCG) Enterprise SSC protocol self-encryption and cryptographic-erase support. These high-performance, 2.5 inch enterprise models with SAS interface, target high-end servers and data center applications and provide capacities ranging up to 1.6TB[1].

The PX02AMU value line of SATA eSSD models and the PX03ANU read-intensive line of SATA eSSD models, both for enterprise applications, feature cryptographic- erase for fast and secure media sanitization.

For mobile computing, the MQ01ABU***W series provides self-encryption, cryptographic-erase and TCG-Opal SSC protocol support in a slim 7mm height with up to 500GB[1] of storage capacity. The MQ01ABU***W series also supports Toshiba's innovative Wipe technology, which adds security features that allows system designers to automatically cryptographic-erase sensitive user data if an unexpected host attempts to access the HDDs or if a defined number of authentication failures occurs.

Toshiba is also working on FIPS 140-2 certification[2] for select SED products to meet government-class security requirements.

One Terabyte (1 TB) is 1012 =1,000,000,000,000 bytes.

One Gigabyte (1 GB) is 109 =1,000,000,000 bytes.
[2] FIPS 140-2, Federal Information Processing Standards 140-2 is a U.S. government computer security standard used to certify cryptographic modules.
