HIAWATHA, Iowa – Through a partnership with Seagate Government Solutions (SGS), Crystal Group Inc. will introduce the PASS SAS solid-state drives (SSD), which ruggedized and accredits data-encrypted drives for secure data storage at the tactical edge.
Crystal Group provides this data-at-rest solution that meets the highest computer security standards of the U.S. government, including FIPS 140-2 and NIAP accreditation.
SGS's commercial, high-capacity 2.5-inch SAS SSDs and Crystal Group's proprietary ruggedization processes is for the best combination in critical data protection and trusted-computing for military applications in extreme and unpredictable conditions.
As the Department of Defense (DoD) moves closer to a dual-encryption standard for their data strategy requirements, these drives deliver the first layer of accredited, hardware-based data encryption. As a result, DoD will integrate the next layer of cryptographic key management encryption for CSfC requirements at a much higher rate and standard.
