G+D Mobile Security's CryptoCore SSD solution

G+D Mobile Security have launched the world's first SSD (Solid State Drive) with an embedded Secure Element (eSE). This new product addresses the need for maximum, tamper-proof security of data stored on a SSD.

With CryptoCore SSD, sensitive and confidential data can be stored easily and with the highest level of security. The embedded Secure Element also ensures that sensitive data can only be accessed by authorised applications and people.

CryptoCore SSD stores sensitive and confidential data on a tamper-proof chip, which is embedded in the SSD. Critical data are therefore separated from conventional user data; effectively, the risk of using 'infected' non-critical data to gain access to, or manipulate, security-relevant data is significantly reduced – without any extra effort on the part of the user. 

The product, which is a certifiable and standardised component, suits many users and applications and applications; alongside any other security-driven industries, these include the health sector (i.e. doctors in private practice and hospitals), the aerospace industry, and legal services (such as lawyers and patent offices).

The SSD is retrofit and centrally manageable; it provides the ability to make regular and longtime updates of the embedded Secure Element. This leads to lower maintenance costs for IT security, as the total costs of ownership are reduced while the system lifecycle is increased.

G+D Mobile Security's CryptoCore SSD solution has an M.2 (Key B) interface commonly used in industrial applications. M.2 is a specification for internally mounted computer expansion cards and associated connectors.
