According to the company, Securre-Stor is a 2.5-inch SSD and includes FIPS AES-256 encryption and a 100 millisecond fast-erase capability, which is followed by a full hardware erase in less than ten seconds.

It claimed that the Securre-Stor SSD leverages a variety of features to protect data and ensure reliable performance, including key management (session, permanent and custom keys), 256-bit pass phrase protection and hardware authentication.

BJ Heggli, vice president of strategic development and assistant general manager for Microsemi, said: “Securre-Stor is addressing needs for secure SSDs beyond strong encryption in applications where protecting data is considered critical.”
