SiliconSystems Ensures Security
ALISO VIEJO, Calif. -- SiliconSystems, a world leader in advanced storage technology, today announced its SiliconDrive
Secure family of products which offer an unprecedented level of storage system security. SiliconDrive Secure is a low-power, scaleable storage solution which integrates security to guard against critical user data falling into the wrong hands or software IP theft. SiliconDrive Secure enables OEM system manufacturers to create new market and business opportunities while enhancing product differentiation.
SiliconDrive Secure provides the industry's most comprehensive suite of proprietary technologies enabling multiple user-selectable options for assuring data and software IP security. Offering designers easy implementation, SiliconDrive Secure provides advanced security features such as ultra-fast data erasure and sanitization, data zones with independent security parameters and secure areas for OEMs to add unique encryption/decryption keys as a basis for implementing customer-specific security strategies.
Unlike the needs in consumer electronics applications such as USB drives, where security is implemented on the removable device, Enterprise System OEMs benefit from security that is tied directly to the host system, rendering the data unreadable if the storage device is used on another system. Tying security to the host system is especially useful to companies that routinely ship software IP upgrades that could be vulnerable to theft and to prevent security breaches when the storage is removed from the original system.
"SiliconDrive Secure was designed to meet the new demands customers now face in assuring storage system security as more and more embedded devices are shared or deployed over networks," said Michael Hajeck, CEO at SiliconSystems. "SiliconDrive Secure is an ideal solution for software IP managers and others responsible for stopping sensitive data from falling into the wrong hands and preventing software IP theft, which according to the Commerce Department, costs U.S. businesses more than $250 billion annually."
