Many legacy industrial systems fail to provide adequate security measures. As cybercriminals evolve, finding secure storage solutions for government, finance, healthcare, and defense applications remains an important consideration. At present, agencies in the U.S. and Canada require storage devices that meet security certifications to prevent data theft. To this end, FIPS 140-2 certification requirements for storage products used in the government/public sector will be enforced in 3 years. FIPS self-encryption drive (SED) certified storage products meet US federal government secure storage requirements and comply with specified encryption algorithms, ensuring that SSD internal data handling procedures adhere to NIST standards. Certified solutions deliver safe data storage to diverse security-sensitive applications in infrastructure, healthcare, defense, and finance.
