Kingston Technology, one of the leading supplier of memory modules and solid-state drives, has announced a version of its SSDNow KC300 that allows corporations and organizations the ability to manage the drive. The custom Kingston KC300 SSD is fully compliant with the Opal 1.0 specification of the Trusted Computing Group (TCG).
The TCG Opal 1.0 compliant KC300 is ideal for companies implementing centralized management software to manage security policies, password recovery, compliance logging, automatic updates and user creation/deletion. The self-encrypting drive provides organizations with strong, easy-to-use and high performance built-in security. The custom KC300 SSD is designed to work with popular enterprise management applications including WinMagic SecureDoc, Wave Embassy and McAfee Endpoint Encryption for PC (EEPC).
“As SSDs become more common in businesses and organizations, many of our enterprise customers are now looking into managing these drives in the workforce. We are proud to offer a version of our top-selling KC300 SSD with the ability to be managed by the most popular endpoint software applications to give companies flexibility and peace of mind to keep work data secure,” said Ariel Perez, SSD business manager at Kingston.
KC300 is the next-generation business drive, replacing the Kingston V+200 and KC100 SSDs. The drive features enterprise-grade SMART attributes, allowing IT departments to monitor wear range data, SSD life remaining write amplification and total bytes written. KC300 comes equipped with Data Integrity Protection featuring DuraWrite technology to extend the life of the SSD by effectively and efficiently reducing the number of NAND flash writes via an intelligent compression engine without sacrificing data integrity. RAISE reduces the number of uncorrectable errors in the drive, over and above standard error code correction.
The Kingston KC300 with TCG Opal is available in 60GB, 120GB and 240GB capacities. Enterprise customers looking for the custom TCG Opal 1.0 compliant KC300 solid-state drive should contact their local Kingston sales representative. KC300 is backed by a three-year warranty.
