CMS Announces First-Ever USB 3.0 500 Gigabyte Laptop Self-Encrypting Drive
IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 3, 2013--CMS Products Inc., a leading innovator in data backup, encryption and security technology for business users and consumers, today announced the availability of the first-ever self-encrypting USB Laptop Self-Encrypting drive (SED) that meets the Opal standard from Trusted Computing Group (TCG). CE-Secure DiskVault is designed to more than double a laptop’s internal storage capacity and is available in commercial as well as government (FIPS 140-2 Level 2) grades.
“As businesses look for additional storage, it’s important for data to be highly secured without sacrificing performance,” said Ken Burke, president, CMS Products, Inc. “Data breach is becoming more common and costs businesses millions of dollars annually. By encrypting the drive itself, customers can protect their data from intruders without affecting performance.”
The Opal standard was created by the Trusted Computing Group (TCG), which develops open standards for secure computing. The TCG Opal standard is designed to ensure interoperability across vendors, technologies and platforms. While traditional SEDs based on the Opal standard have shipped for several years, this is the first time a 500 gigabyte (GB) USB 3.0 laptop drive has earned the distinction.
As enterprises make mission-critical data available to employees, they also must consider legal and compliance regulations in their respective industries. Many organizations are required by law to be in compliance with data protection standards. CMS’s new CE Secure DiskVault USB 3.0 helps ensure that companies meet regulations such as HIPAA, Sarbanes-Oxley and more.
