Toshiba Developed Hardware Encrypted Hard Drive

Toshiba has recently launched a new hard drive. 2.5-inch HDD MKxx61GSYG boasts a built-in encryption in hardware, but if it is stolen, the disk will erase all data stored on it.Due to the fact that the encryption of the hard disk at the hardware level, is unlikely to incompatibility with most modern platforms. This means that the encryption process will be almost invisible to end users.For example, you do not need to carry out encryption manually because the encryption process starts automatically when the user operations.If someone removes the disk from the host PC and enters the wrong credentials, the drive can be programmed to restrict access to information, removal of all or some of the information stored on it, or perform cryptographic removal.

In addition, with the help of special instruments, such as Intel, AMT (Active Management Technology), a user can perform secure remote management.While MKxx61GSYG HDD comes with the following capacity: 640GB, 500GB, 320GB, 250GB and 160 GB, reports TG Daily.
