Digistor announced its Series C secure SSDs, the company’s first SSDs to add Cigent D3E cybersecurity software. The new SSDs broaden the company’s comprehensive solutions and virtually eliminate the barrier to securing data at rest (DAR) with military-grade encryption for hardware and software. Additionally, the full line of FIPS 140-2 L2 certified SSDs are undergoing Common Criteria certification. The C Series SSDs augment Digistor self-encrypting SSDs with easily implemented, flexible file-level encryption and allow users to choose whether files are always locked or dynamically locked based on AI threat detection. Once locked, files are available only to authenticated individuals. The C Series supports multifactor authentication, including Windows Hello - Facial Recognition, Fingerprint, PIN, Google Authenticator, and third-party authentication solutions like Cisco Duo. The new Citadel GL SSD extends pre-boot authentication (PBA) to UAVs, sensors, appliances, and other “headless” applications. In addition, they prevent unauthorized access to data where no monitor or screen is available for user interaction.
