CMS Products Announces CE-Secure DiskVault FIPS Certification

Wednesday, February 20, 2013 8:30 AM

DiskVault Meets Trusted Computing Group Opal SED Specification

CMS Products Inc. a leading innovator in encryption, security technology for business, government and military users, today announced the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) certification of its CE-Secure DiskVault-FIPS product line (FIPS indicates the Federal Information Processing Standard). The DiskVault-FIPS external USB and Module bay SED storage solutions have been certified to FIPS 140-2 level 2. DiskVault-FIPS solutions are designed to be “management ready” for secure managed environments or operated as standalone encrypted storage/backup devices. Storage capacities range from 500 gigabyte (GB) to 4 terabytes (TB) and meet the Trusted Computing Group (TCG) standards. “As businesses look for additional storage, it’s important for data to be highly secured without sacrificing performance,” said Ken Burke, president, CMS Products, Inc. “Data breach is becoming more common and costs businesses millions annually. By encrypting the drive itself, customers can protect their data from intruders without affecting performance.”

The CE-Secure DiskVault-FIPS product line integrates Seagate’s world-class, self-encrypting drive (SED) Momentus Thin and Enterprise Capacity hard drives. “We choose Seagate as our SED partner because they are innovators and the leaders in hard drive hardware encryption,” added Burke.

The Opal standard for SEDs was created by the Trusted Computing Group (TCG), which develops standards for secure computing. The TCG Opal standard is designed to ensure interoperability across vendors, technologies and platforms. While traditional SEDs based on the Opal standard have shipped for several years, this is the first time they have been available as a government-grade FIPS certified external solution.

As enterprises make mission-critical data available to employees, legal and compliance regulations in their respective industries must also be considered.

“The combined Seagate and CMS offering will provide security-conscious customers with a highly secure, manageable external data protection solution,” said Bob Griswold, senior vice president of product line management at Seagate. “External hardware-based encryption and security provides a level of trust and performance not achievable by software encrypted devices. CMS’s new CE-Secure DiskVault – FIPS Edition will help companies ensure that they meet regulatory requirements such as HIPAA, Sarbanes-Oxley and more.”
