Despite existence of several data security measures ranging from biometric to passwords, hackers have always found a way to access our personal data either for justified reasons or malicious gain. In order to increase the degree of your data security, it’s always advisable to implement several security measures i.e. physical precautions such as keeping server rooms locked, using safes to keep laptops with vital information and so on. A combination of these security measures drastically reduces chances of your personal confidential information being accessed by malicious hackers; the new Micron RealSSD C400 drive adds an encryption feature to your confidential information making it more difficult for hackers to retrieve data stored on the drive. Apparently, Micron RealSSD C400 implements a hardware based encryption solution built within the drive that requires authentication code when booted.
Micron RealSSD C400 Self Encrypting Drive (SED) Promises Secure Data Storage
Apart from other security measures, a hard drive capable of supporting AE 256-bit hardware encryption technology is deemed relevant in an effort to ensure maximum security of vital personal information and that’s exactly what Micron RealSSD C400 drive does. In addition, Micron RealSSD C400 features a Solid State Drive (SSD) technology known to offer the fastest hard drive speed in the industry. The drive is completely secure before being booted and requires an authentication code to access your vital information; it’s categorized among Full Disk Encryption (FDE) supporting various important features such as cryptographic disk erasure. After the Micron RealSSD C400 drive has booted and functioning, it works just like any other full disk encryption drive utilizing a hardware based encryption technology without any performance laxity as experienced among software based technology; in simple facts, hardware based encryption solution implemented on Micron RealSSD C400 maintains a solid performance associated with solid state drives.
Micron RealSSD C400 drive’s hardware based encryption solution is independent of the operating system and works by placing a small self securing computer right on the drive. The manufacturer plans to ship Micron RealSSD C400 drives in 128GB, 256GB and 512GB options all of which will be at 6GB/s; in addition, users will have two different form factors to choose from; 1.8 inch and 2.5 inch ensuring the drives fit in various laptops and enclosures. Apart from security features, Micron RealSSD C400 drives are known to offer an impressive performance of up to 500MB/s read speeds and 260MB/s write speeds.
