SPYRUS(R) Announces PocketVault 3X Portable USB 3.0 SSD With Suite B Hardware Encryption for Microsoft(R) Windows(R), Macintosh and Linux Computers
SAN JOSE, CA, Feb 25, 2013 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
SPYRUS announced today the availability of PocketVault 3X, a
portable USB 3.0 Encrypting SSD featuring the same high-assurance
hardware encrypting security designed into their Windows To Go
certified USB 3.0 SSD drives.
This latest member of the Secured by SPYRUS(TM) family of USB
encrypting devices incorporates advanced military grade hardware
security to provide the most secure use-anywhere high performance USB
storage drive available today. Like the USB 2.0 PocketVault P-384, it
provides secure cross platform portability of data providing support
for Microsoft Windows, Mac OSX, Linux and mobile operating systems.
Secured By SPYRUS(TM) technology implements the cryptographic base
used by the United States Government to protect Data at Rest. During
full disk encryption, every sector of the device's memory is
protected with the XTS-AES 256-bit hardware encryption mode
recommended by IEEE 1669 and referenced by the NIST SP800-38E
PocketVault 3X SSD uses the Rosetta Micro(TM) hardware security
module that is built into all SPYRUS encrypting USB product lines for
key management and is designed to meet FIPS 140-2 Level 2 and Level 3
specifications to protect user data against unauthorized access to
Unlike competing use-anywhere encrypting USB flash drives,
SPYRUS-proprietary key management technology used in the Rosetta
Micro never stores a copy of your password anywhere, not on your
drive or on a network storage device where your confidential
information can be at significant risk from internal or external
attacks. Additional authentication and data security applications
using the Rosetta Micro onboard PocketVault 3X SSD will be released
to be compatible with PocketVault Encryptor applications used on
Android, Surface RT, Surface Pro and iPad.
PocketVault USB 3X SSD can also be used as a separate, secondary
secure data storage device with the SPYRUS Secure Pocket Drive(TM)
that boots Windows Embedded Standard 7 or Linux or with the Secure
Portable Workplace(TM) and Portable Workplace(TM) Windows To Go
Certified USB 3.0 drives. When used in this manner, PocketVault 3X
SSD can provide the significant benefits of greatly increased SSD
memory capacities to 100GB and lightning-fast performance for
SPYRUS will be previewing their new high assurance security devices
in booth 2333 at the RSA Security Conference 2013 in San Francisco,
CA, February 25-28.
