SAN JOSE, Calif., February 12, 2024 (Newswire.com) - Seagate Federal, a pioneer in secure data storage technology, and KLC Group, a recognized innovator in data-at-rest encryption solutions (DAR), have announced a cross-licensing partnership. This collaboration positions them at the forefront of data security by offering customers advanced DAR solutions compliant with the stringent NSA Commercial Solutions for Classified (CSfC).
This strategic alliance signifies a shared commitment to unparalleled data protection. By leveraging the comprehensive NSA CSfC framework, KLC Group and Seagate Federal will now deliver state-of-the-art solutions that meet the highest government standards for safeguarding classified information across endpoints, servers, and RAID systems.
CipherDriveOne is a Hardware Full Disk Encryption - Authorization Acquisition (AA) solution to meet the U.S. Government’s Data-at-Rest (DAR) requirement. CipherDriveOne adds a strong multifactor authentication (MFA) access control and key encryption to the Seagate self-encrypting drive (SED), CSfC Encryption Engine (EE), either as a solid-state drive (SSD) or spinning hard drive (HDD). The protection of the hard drive’s content is immediate, operating system agnostic, and governed by a certified FIPS-140-2 level key encryption technology with the availability of managed single, two-factor, and multi-factor authentication.
Incorporating military strength encryption and strong access control technologies, CipherDriveOne products are combined with multiple Seagate CSfC-listed disk products, including the Seagate Barracuda 515, Seagate Exos X18, and Seagate Nytro 5350H series SSDs. The combined solution provides one complete NSA layer of encryption to defend against unauthorized data access and protect against digital theft. The use of AES-256-bit encryption and FIPS-140-2-certified algorithms will safeguard data integrity and confidentiality, meeting the stringent requirements of classified environments.
Seagate Federal and KLC Group are committed to delivering solutions that not only meet security standards but also ensure optimal performance and scalability. This ensures that organizations can seamlessly integrate the new data-at-rest solutions into their existing infrastructure, without compromising on efficiency.
“Our partnership with KLC will further allow Seagate Federal to answer the requirements of our national security clients. The solution of Seagate hardware and KLC’s Cipher Drive family of security software addresses the unique challenges of this community,” stated Mike Moritzkat, CEO of Seagate Federal.
