Self-encrypted 2.5″ SATA SSD from Microsemi
Microsemi announced a secure, half-terabyte SSD for mobile video surveillance operations, SANs and other high capacity storage applications requiring superior real-time data protection.
The ruggedized TRRUST-Stor Series 200 2.5″ SATA SSD operates at sustained 200 megabytes per second (MB/s) and delivers the industry’s fastest full-hardware-based erase time of less than 10 seconds.
TRRUST-Stor SSD provides military-grade ruggedization as well as safeguards and processes for physical data storage with multiple layers of security features. The suite of industry-leading features prevents corruption and unauthorized access with hardware- and software-based barriers. The drive features a built-in compact in-line encryptor with hardware-implemented, NIST-certified AES 256 encryption using the XTS block cipher mode.
Ruggedization features include superior error correction, 9 petabytes write endurance, power loss protection and more than 2 million hours mean time between failure (MTBF). Enhanced mechanical construction ensures operation in extreme temperatures, humidity, shock and vibration.
The TRRUST-Stor Series 200 is powered by Microsemi’s second generation Armor processor, enabling robust performance. The Series 200 SSDs also offer the ability to load encryption keys. Customers can input their own AES-256 keys, purge them and reload as needed. Microsemi’s TRRUST-Purge technology destroys keys in less than 30 milliseconds when activated.
