IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--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 self-encrypting drive module bay drive (SED) that meets the Opal standard from Trusted Computing Group (TCG). CE-Secure DiskVault – Module Bay Edition is designed to more than double a Dell laptop’s internal storage capacity with performance unattainable by external solutions or software-based encryption.
“Data breach is becoming more common and costs businesses millions annually. By encrypting the drive itself, customers can protect their data from intruders without affecting performance.”
“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 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 an internal module bay drive has earned this 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 – Module Bay Edition helps ensure that companies meet regulations such as HIPAA, Sarbanes-Oxley and more.
