HDD that Can Erase All Information if Stolen

Share

A new hard drive has been recently launched by Toshiba. The SATA 7200 RPM, 2.5 inch MKxx61GSYG HDD boasts built-in hardware-level encryption and in case it is stolen, the disk can erase everything stored on it.

Due to the fact that the encryption of this hard disk drive is performed at a hardware level, theirs is little chance it will have issues regarding its compatibility. This means that the encryption process is almost unnoticeable to final users.

For instance, you don't have to encrypt manually, because the encryption process runs automatically when you perform custom operations.

In case someone removes the disk from the host PC and introduces incorrect access data, the disk can be programmed to restrict access to information, erase all or some information stored on it or carry out a cryptographic erase.

In addition, with the help of special tools like Intel's AMT (Active Management Technology), the user can perform secure remote management.

So far the MKxx61GSYG HDD comes in the following capacities: 640GB, 500GB, 320GB, 250GB and 160 GB, reports TG Daily.
