Disk | Storage
Flash memory has revolutionized the way we use and store data, enabling portable, affordable and reliable storage for consumers and corporations. With the popularity and increased capacity of USB flash drives, storage cards comes the need to protect and manage stored data. Solid state disks (SSD) signal flash memory’s entry into enterprise storage and personal computers, creating additional requirements for enhanced capabilities, such as: full or partial disk encryption, secure boot, manageability, firmware protection, trust chains as well as authentication with peripheral devices. Moreover to ensure flash memory’s continued growth into new vertical markets such as health care and banking and preloaded content, a built-in hardware security system is a must.
The combination of flash storage capabilities with a reliable hardware based security enables the transformation of flash memory from basic storage into sophisticated, high-capacity secure storage and will further expand its adoption as a seamless, convenient and efficient solution with unlimited potential
