Fujitsu 320GB 2.5-inch HDD has 256-bit AES encryption

Posted on Tuesday, April 22 2008 @ 00:40:21 CEST by


Fujitsu has released a new 2.5" 320GB hard drive with a rotional speed of 7200RPM and 256-bit AES encryption.
This series is the first hard disk drive in the world to support the 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES). The drive implements the AES hardware encryption directly into the processor chip of the hard disk drive, resulting in more robust security and faster system performance than software-based encryption.

All data stored on the hard disk drive can be erased instantly, in less than a second, using the advanced secure erase feature. For public institutions and companies that handle large amounts of personal and other confidential data, this dramatically lowers the time and cost involved in wiping clean the hard drives of computers that are disposed of or reused.

With the growing problem of information theft and new laws protecting personal information, interest in data security is extremely high, especially as disk capacity increases and users write vast amounts of personal and other data on their drives. Lost or stolen computers with high-capacity hard drives put confidential information at risk, making the need to secure the data stored on those hard drives all the more urgent.

The conventional response to this problem has been the use of BIOS passwords and software-based encryption. Seeking a more robust form of data security, Fujitsu has now developed 2.5" hard disk drives with hardware-based AES encryption using industry-leading 256-bit key.

The built-in AES automatically encrypts all data when storing it on the hard disk drive and decrypts the data when read. Unlike software-based encryption, the key does not reside in the computer's memory. This makes it more resistant to attack and imposes no processing overhead on the CPU, optimizing system performance.
The drive will be available at the end of May.
