Microsemi Corp. has released what it boasts as a highly secure, encrypted 2.5in SATA solid state drive (SSD) aimed to provide exceptional data protection for commercial, banking/financial, medical, industrial and smart grid applications. The company added that SECURRE-Stor features a 100ms fast-erase capability, which is followed by a full hardware erase in less than 10s.

According to Microsemi, the device is geared for secure laptops, ATMs and other systems using hard disc drives that may need to be physically destroyed to prevent data from getting into the wrong hands. SECURRE-Stor has achieved the federal information processing standard (FIPS) AES 256 encryption certification and is available in 64GB and 128GB storage densities.

Microsemi's unique SECURRE-Stor SSD leverages a variety of features to protect data and ensure reliable performance including key management (session, permanent and custom keys), 256bit pass phrase protection and hardware authentication. In addition, error correction, wear leveling and a failure prevention methodology protect data from catastrophic failures in critical applications.

An integrated Microsemi memory processor enables feature-rich capabilities and the flexibility required to support varying OS requirements. Additional SECURRE-Stor attributes include self-monitoring, analysis and reporting technology, and a built-in test capability.

Microsemi indicated that its microelectronic products can also be ruggedized and processed for tamper resistance.
