UK memory and storage manufacturer Integral Memory will use their first appearance at Embedded World International Trade Fair at Nuremberg to answer the key security issues facing system developers on the eve of GDPR. The leading producer of hardware encrypted SSDs and industrial embedded memory cards and solid state drives will provide a unique insight into the security standards available to developers, to ensure that their embedded systems meet new security regulations that will be enforced from May 2018.

Potentially serious and financially punitive repercussions arising from any data breaches are focussing client companies and end users on the need for system security. Encrypted storage is central to the measures needed to maintain data integrity. However, developers are faced with a confusing ‘forest of certifications’ when required to validate the level of data protection provided by the storage drives within their embedded systems. System builders are required to navigate an array of security standards including CESG, Common Criteria, Opal 2.0 and FIPS, as well as an array of additional regional certifications. Integral Memory aims to provide clarity to this choice, both by speaking at the major international conference and from their stand with the exhibition.

In offering guidance on this vital aspect of system development, Integral will explain the security measures and certifications behind their Crypto range of 256-bit AES hardware encrypted drives. The Crypto SSD has been regarded by system developers to be the ultimate line of defence and all models carry highly-regarded FIPS 140-2 certification. Importantly, the technology is bios independent making it the only FIPS certified SSD available on the market that utilises its own program to activate and manage the encryption and enforce usernames and passwords.

Since its inception, the Crypto range has been trusted by rapidly growing customer base across both private and public sectors worldwide. Naturally, national government security services feature heavily among Integral’s users. Regional government, multi-national corporates and major management consultancies are also large-scale users of Crypto SSD.
