Compact 512 GB devices protect Big Data Analytics, Disaster Recovery, Digital Entertainment and IoT Sensor Data Environments against increasingly aggressive cyberattacks
San Jose, CA – February 11, 2015 — SPYRUS today announced the worldâ€™s first 512 GB high-capacity Microsoft [NASDQ: MSFT] certified Windows To Go SSD live drives by increasing the memory available for the SPYRUS Portable Workplace, Secure Portable Workplace™, WorkSafe™, and WorkSafe Pro products. The expanded memory is now also available for the SPYRUS P-3X secure data storage platform. The devices extend the family of 32, 64, 128, and 256 GB versions to address a rapidly developing need for large memory capacity trusted mobility solutions that transform almost any laptop or desktop into a trustworthy workspace. SPYRUS USB 3.0 form factor SSD drives are completely designed in the U.S.A. and manufactured for SPYRUS in PNY Technologies New Jersey facility to protect the security integrity of the product against the new waves of cyberattacks. The SPYRUS products have all successfully passed a battery of stringent MILSPEC 810 and related environmental and security requirements.
With the launch of this product, SPYRUSâ€™s family of high-capacity live drives and secure storage devices provide contractors, remote workers, travelers, and telecommuters with a complete operating environment that includes extensive storage capacity for development tools and large datasets that create “personal cloud-likeâ€ data analytics. 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 and theft with layered hardware and software encryption depending on the particular model. In addition, the 512 GB versions of the SPYRUS WorkSafe Pro devices containing an internal FIPS 140-2 Level 3 rated HSM can prove to be highly beneficial in the rapidly evolving architectures for the Internet of Things, where secure data storage with attestations of trustworthiness and data provenance are vital to supporting Service Controlled Networking (SCN) and related architectures.
â€œPNY is proud to partner with SPYRUS to manufacture this new ultra-high capacity Windows To Go drive. We believe that it meets the burgeoning market demand for secure higher capacity data storageâ€ said Bob Stone, SVP of Operations for PNY. â€œOur extensive USA manufacturing and support facilities for flash-based products in Parsippany, New Jersey, can meet the global demand forecasted for bootable live drives and SSDs. SPYRUS customers can depend on our years of experience shipping millions of reliable devices to enterprises and consumers.â€ â€œTechnical leadership, hardware security, optional onboard FIPS 140-2 Level 3 PKI capabilities, ultra-high performance, and the new features of Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 make SPYRUS 512 GB drives the choice for high-capacity Windows To Go platforms,â€ said Tom Dickens, SPYRUS COO. â€œBy utilizing the new high-capacity drives, corporations may finally realize significant cost savings by repurposing employee-owned or corporate legacy computers. The high capacity live drives for Windows To Go are ideal for Disaster Recovery and Continuity of Operations scenarios, customers in the entertainment industry and government agencies with high data volume requirements.â€
The family of new 512GB high-capacity drives maintain compatibility with the optional SPYRUS Enterprise Management System (SEMS). Combining a Microsoft public key with a smart card-enabled ecosystem and SPYRUS security applications extends a true end-to-end security approach for enterprise smart card and PKI infrastructure to mobile users for authentication to applications and networks. With SEMS device management, enterprise administrators can centrally register, block/unblock, revoke, set policies, audit, and â€œkillâ€ SPYRUS Windows To Go drives.
