The Samsung SSD SED solution is enabled via the newly released Samsung Magician 4.3 software, providing the security features required in enterprise user environments, such as government offices, finance institutions and other businesses.
Samsung's 840 EVO line now offers three security types: Class 0, TCG Opal, and Encrypted Drive (eDrive). While all Samsung's SSD solutions have Class 0 encryption, enabled with a BIOS password, the new update for the 840 EVO line allows 3rd party ISVs (Independent Software Vendors) to enhance the security management of the drives, for example, allowing for centralized management and deployment. The update also adds compatibility with Microsoft eDrive security on Windows 8 and above. By adding compatibility with professional encryption software, enterprise customers can utilize the new upgrades without further verification and achieve optimized security features.
Utilizing crypto erase through Physical Security ID (PSID), encryption keys for large data can be adjusted in just seconds, protecting data from being accessed without authentication and immediately reset for authorized use, cutting operation costs and raising efficiencies.
The new data security upgrade was enabled through Samsung's collaboration with Wave System's Wave Cloud and EMBASSY Remote Administration Server (ERAS).
