SPYRUS Achieves Windows 10 Certification for Industry-Leading Half-Terabyte USB 3.0 SSD Bootable Windows To Go Devices

By September 1, 2015 Press Release

San Jose, CA – August 31 2015 – SPYRUS® today announced the world’s first 512 GB high-capacity Microsoft [NASDQ: MSFT] Windows® 10 certified Windows To Go SSD live drives.   The Portable Workplace, Secure Portable Workplace™, WorkSafe™, and WorkSafe Pro devices extend the SPYRUS family of 32, 64, 128, and 256 GB versions to address a rapidly developing need for large memory capacity to address local data analytics processing and on-demand data mining among a mobile workforce.  The value of this data requires a solution that transforms almost any laptop or desktop into a trustworthy workspace to protect this valued content and the resultant critical business information.

SPYRUS devices enable immediate, economical, low-friction deployment of highly secure, high-capacity Windows 10 computing environments – fully provisioned and fully functional within hours vs. weeks for traditional approaches.  Organizations gain new agility to provision (and decommission) contractors, remote workers and telecommuters with a complete operating environment that includes global end-point support securely and centrally managed by the SPYRUS Enterprise Management System. The SPYRUS products have all successfully passed a battery of stringent MILSPEC 810 and related environmental and security requirements.

“Technical leadership, hardware security, onboard FIPS 140-2 Level 3 hardware security module with PKI capabilities, ultra-high performance, and the new features of Windows 10 make SPYRUS 512 GB drives the choice for high-capacity Windows To Go platforms,” said Tom Dickens, SPYRUS COO. “Our customers have told us that by deploying these new high-capacity drives, they will realize significant cost savings by repurposing employee/contractor-owned or corporate legacy computers to large memory capacity computing projects.    Other use cases include Disaster Recovery and Continuity of Operations scenarios, entertainment industry content development and distribution, and government agencies with high data volume requirements.”

With Windows 10 certification,  SPYRUS’s family of high-capacity live drives provide contractors, remote workers, travelers, and telecommuters with a complete operating environment that includes extensive storage capacity for development tools and large datasets that creates cryptographically secure  “personal cloud-like” data centers in their hands . The new high capacity drives retain all the capabilities of their widely acclaimed smaller capacity versions and feature superior security defense of the operating system, documents, and identity credentials from tampering, cyber and malware attacks, or physical theft.  SPYRUS WTG devices cover a range of layered hardware and software encryption configurations depending on the particular model.

The family of new 512 GB high-capacity Windows 10 drives maintains compatibility with the optional SPYRUS Enterprise Management System (SEMS™). With SEMS device management, enterprise administrators can centrally register, block/unblock, revoke, set policies, audit, and “kill” SPYRUS Windows to Go drives wherever they are located.  This is of particular value for an enterprise  mobile user computing environment , in which SPYRUS offers the additional managed protection for networks and applications through  SPYRUS WorkSafe and WorkSafe Pro Windows To Go drives with integrated PKI smart cards for two-factor authentication to access corporate communications and computing assets.
