PNY announced its entry into the high assurance encrypting USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 data storage and bootable drives market with new PNY cobranded Secured By SPYRUS drives. The PocketVault P-3X and PocketVault P-384 encrypting USB drives are resistant to the BadUSB attacks that otherwise is an unpatched problem.
“PNY is proud to partner with SPYRUS to manufacture and distribute the SPYRUS USB product lines specifically engineered to meet the security needs of the Enterprise and Government marketplace,” said Bob Stone, SVP of Operations for PNY. “Our extensive USA manufacturing and support facilities for flashbased products in Parsippany, New Jersey, can meet the global demand forecasted for high security USB 2.0 and 3.0 devices.”
PocketVault P-3X combines USB 3.0 performance and SSD NAND for ultra-fast performance. Designed to meet FIPS 140-2 Level 2 and Level 3 specifications, the P-3X features a ruggedized extruded aluminum case and a unique embedded hardware security module to support digital signature applications. PocketVault P-384 is a USB 2.0 drive that stores your data in an encrypted partition on its internal microSD card. Both drives use the latest XTS-AES 256-bit full disk encryption instead of the older AES-CBC encryption.
PNY is also entering the Hardware-encrypted Secure Portable Workplace and Bitlocker encrypted Portable Workplace family from SPYRUS. These are Microsoft-certified Windows-To-Go drives that securely boot your custom Windows 8 or 8.1 securely even when booted from untrusted computers.
