Samsung and many manufacturers are now leading the way with [SSDs now open] news that these SSDs will practice built-in full government grade AES 256 Bit-encryption for increased security to allow safety against loss of data. Corporates and professionals, who know the true worth of data, will be glad to acknowledge the high value of Samsung SSDs and give them a place of its own.
It is Samsung’s debate that they are the only ones who possess SSDs for Corporate users with TCG’s Opal Standard 256 bit-encryption.
Here are some of the most important features:-
- AES encryption extended to 256-bits – These Samsung SSD features are advanced hardware self encryption methods based on Trusted Computing Group’s Opan Standard.
- Protection against data loss.
- Protection against unauthorized access to sensitive data.
- Rugged, light and fast.
- 25%less weight than HDDS-perfect for laptops, notebooks etc.
- Sequential read/write speeds of upto 250/220 HB/s.
- Firmware and hardware can be securely updated.
The AES 256 Bit-encryption is placed on the top most position. User authentication and data encryption are done through the great security of drive controller rather than based o software. Software based encryptions utilize CPU and save data in unsafe memory areas. Samsung’s self encrypting drives SED encrypt data at the interface speed therefore ther will be no slowing of operations of the SSD. Hardware encryption allows the speed to increase 2.4 times faster than software encrypted devices and 3.7 times higher when it is compared to a hard drive with software encryption.
Samsung drive encourages management software which functions along with the SSD’s self encryption software to give a totally controlled hardware encryption solution Samsung SSD’s encourage Embassy Trusted drive Manager from wave Systems which allow backup and recovery of passwords and enhanced security settings. Other features found are preboot authenticity and a single sign on to Windows. Its feather weight, quicker functioning ad greater safety features are sure to push it to the top position, in the market in the forthcoming months!
