Amidst growing concerns over the security of our data, vendors have responded by producing what have been dubbed self-encrypting drives (SED); devices that are fitted with a controller chip that automatically applies encryption to any data written to the media.
These drives also use two separate encryption keys. One of these is set by the user and the other is installed on the drive’s firmware. As a result, merely extracting the data from the drive and moving it to a new piece of media will be unsuccessful as the data would remain encrypted.
As a result, our technicians will undertake the following when working with your SED drive:
