Seagate Technology has announced worldwide availability of the Seagate Secure self-encrypting drive (SED) option across its portfolio of enterprise-class hard drives. These new enterprise-class products are designed to deliver data-at-rest security for servers and storage systems.
Products with the Seagate Secure option include: Savvio (15K.2 and 10K.3 versions), Constellation and Cheetah 15K.7 drives.
The use of SEDs provides businesses with data-at-rest protection against information breaches that can occur in drives and systems that have been repurposed, decommissioned, disposed of, sent for repair, misplaced or stolen, according to the company.
Intel and LSI are now shipping local key management and 6Gb/s SAS technology with TCG-based security technology within their controllers and server solutions that integrate with Seagate SEDs, the company said.
