Aliso Viejo, Calif. – November 5, 2014 – CMS Products Inc., a leading innovator in data backup & restore, encryption and security technology, today announced the availability of 1TB external self-encrypting drive (SED) that meets the rigorous Opal 2.0 industry standard. CE Secure DiskVault is available with government grade, NIST certified, FIPS 140-2 level-2 encryption, in three configurations, management ready, managed and traveler for self-managed users.
“As businesses look to external drives for additional storage, it’s important for data to be secured,” said Ken Burke, President, CMS Products, Inc. “External SEDs are often used to store sensitive information, creating an even stronger need for industry-standard encryption. By encrypting the drive itself, customers can protect their data from intruders.”
The Opal standard was created by the Trusted Computing Group, a consortium of more than 100 companies that collectively develop, define and promote vendor-neutral security standards. The standard is designed to ensure interoperability across vendors, technologies and platforms.
As enterprises move mission-critical data between appliances, they must also consider legal and compliance regulations in their respective industries. Many organizations transferring data are required by law to be in compliance with data protection standards both internally (on a computer) and externally (on an external hard drive). CMS’s new external SED helps ensure that companies meet regulations like HIPAA, Sarbanes-Oxley and more.
“The increasing use of mobile technology, external drives and cloud-based solutions has turned the spotlight on data security – making it a significant priority for CIOs and IT professionals,” says Eric Kohl, Senior Director, Ingram Micro Advanced Technology Division. “The introduction of this high capacity CMS CE Secure DiskVault can address many of the security concerns businesses and consumers share. We’re pleased to play such an integral role in the launch of this innovative technology.”
Established in 1983, CMS Products, Inc. is a leading innovator in data backup, encryption and security technology for business users and consumers. CMS’s products are sold in more than 90 countries, with installation of more than four million units worldwide.
