Full Disk Encryption

Self-Encrypting Hard Drives

CMS has developed several leading edge full disk encryption solutions designed to make data security easy and effortless. With hardware based full-disk-encryption solutions, everything that is saved to the hard disk or backup system is encrypted using powerful encryption security.

 

Self-encryption is superior to Software-based Solutions

  • Transparency: No system or application modification is required; encryption key generated in the factory by on-drive random number process; drive is always encrypting
  • Ease of management: No encryption key to manage; software vendors exploit standardized interface to manage SEDs, including remote management, pre-boot authentication, and password recovery
  • Disposal or re-purposing cost: With an SED, erase on-board encryption key
  • Re-encryption: With SED, there is no need to ever re-encrypt the data
  • Performance: No degradation in SED performance; hardware-based
  • Standardization: Whole drive industry is building to the TCG/SED specifications
  • Simplified: No interference with upstream processes
