VANCOUVER, Wash. — The data storage manufacturer Digistor is introducing its latest line of solid-state drives (SSDs).

Digistor released its C Series self-encrypting SSDs for securing data at rest, according to the company this month.

The series is intended to protect sensitive data on user endpoint devices in zero-trust environments, including military and critical infrastructure use cases.

The drives are available for retrofit or integration through Digistor OEM and integrator partners.

They are designed to augment Digistor’s other SEDs and offer flexible file-level encryption for users to choose if files are always locked or dynamically locked based on artificial intelligence (AI) threat detection. Once locked, files are available only to authenticated individuals.

The C Series features embedded security software by partner Cigent and is available in two versions: C Series Select and C Series Advanced.

The Select devices were developed for data invisibility, tamper-proof credentials, and zero-trust file access controls. They are available in various form factors, based on Digistor’s off-the-shelf TCG Opal and FIPS 140-2 L2-validated SEDs.

The Advanced device features Select capabilities as well as additional firmware that provides verified data destruction, secure access logs, and keep-alive heartbeat. The C Series Advanced is available in the FIPS 140-2 L2 M.2 NVMe form factor.

The C Series supports multi-factor authentication (MFA), including via fingerprint and PIN.

“With today’s heightened cyber threats, militaries and governments more than ever need to employ trusted architectures to better protect endpoint data at rest,” said Robin Wessel, EVP at CRU Data Security Group, parent company of the Digistor brand.

Wessel said the C Series drives add “critical zero-trust architecture capabilities to our line of secure SEDs.”
