Data at Rest Security

Data Security is becoming one of the most important requirements for storage deployment. These requirements drove the development of software based full-disk encryption systems or inherent to SSD architecture hardware based Self-Encrypting Drive (SED) function. These functions enabled storage deployment in a variety of more or less trusted and more or less secure locations, ensuring user data confidentiality, integrity, availability, authentication and non-repudiation via the use of the encryption, appropriate key management, digital signature and message digest algorithms and techniques.

With the phenomenal growth of in-field storage deployments over the last several years in both civilian and defense systems and networks, there was an attempt to standardize the security functions and requirements such FIPS, TCG OPAL and CSfC approaches.

Memkor supports and can support a variety of SED management alternatives. Please contact us for more information.


ORANGE, BLUE and BLACK Series Self-Encrypted Drives (SED)

Memkor Orange Series SSDs consists of a broad range of SSD solutions designed as drop-in replacements for traditional mechanical SATA 1.8”, 2.5” and 3.5” drives, as well as newer standards such as mSATA (MO-300B), M.2 (formerly NGFF), or MO-276 SSD in Chip (SSDiC).

The PCIe/NVMe interface on the 2.5” (U.2) form factor allows to scale the performance up to 1,200MB/s and 200,000 IOps. The superior ruggedization of the ORANGE Series comply with a wide range of deployments in portable computers, desktops, data recorders, or servers. Addressing the on-going segmentation of the SSD application requirements, a number of security features, performance and power consumption options are offered.

Memkor Blue Series SSDs are geared towards high performance data recorders and servers requiring highest capacity per SATA/PCIe port.

Memkor Blue Series SSDs extend the capabilities and feature set of the Orange Series SSDs to the increased height 2.5” form factor in order to scale the capacity to 8192GB (MLC NAND) in 0.602” (15.3mm) or up to 12 TB if other special form factors can be supported. Memkor BLUE Series with PCIe interface provides an outstanding sustained read/write performance of up to 1,200MB/s and 200,000 IOps. The superior ruggedization of the BLUE Series address a broad range of Defense and Enterprise markets. Addressing the on-going segmentation of the SSD application requirements, a number of security features, performance and power consumption options are offered.

Memkor BLACK Series SSDs with the innovative mechanical design achieve exceptional resistance to the most extreme shock and vibration levels defined in the MIL-STD-810G standard. With a capacity ranging from 16GB to 1024GB using SLC NAND, featuring Write Protect, Data Elimination and optional highly ruggedized HiVibe(C) SATA connector, the BLACK Series considerably expands the deployment flexibility of the Memkor family of SSD’s. A number of security features are offered as options. Contact us for more information
