San Jose, CA – April 20, 2015 – SPYRUS today announced the PocketVault Smart USB 3.0 SSD device that uniquely combines high capacity SSD storage with the SPYRUS Rosetta Hardware Security Module (HSM) security controller to provide strong access authentication and digital log-on for secure communications with remote cloud and network servers. Users can employ popular disk encryption software such as BitLocker or TrueCrypt to protect data on their computer or directly on the PocketVault Smart USB while protecting the disk encryption key on the embedded Rosetta HSM. This unprecedented combination of up to 512 GB of portable storage integrated with Rosetta HSM FIPS 140-2 Level 3 security is packaged in a rugged, high performance USB 3.0 portable form factor.

Purchase the optional PocketVault Encryptor (PVE™) software application to use with the Rosetta HSM to enable file encryption and secure file sharing for end-to-end data confidentiality anywhere — on the PocketVault, on your PC, on a file server, or in the cloud, to provide the ultimate Defense-in-Depth data protection.

“With the launch of this first-of-its-kind data storage product, SPYRUS continues to demonstrate technical leadership for the combination of data storage with FIPS 140-2 Level 3 validated hardware security, PKI capabilities, ultra-high performance, and rugged device packaging for the mobile workplace,” said Tom Dickens, SPYRUS COO. “PocketVault Smart USB 3.0 SSD is a highly affordable drive of choice for data storage across current and legacy Windows, Linux®, or Macintosh platforms with the additional benefit of protecting communications to cloud services with Rosetta HSM security.”

The Rosetta HSM embedded in the PocketVault Smart USB storage device secures all keys and critical security parameters in tamper proof hardware which is tested to exhaustive MIL810 environmental specifications. The Rosetta HSM FIPS 140-2 Level 3 security controller, acts as the relying authentication authority to provide high assurance PKI security services including digital ID for PKI digital certificate functions such as digital signatures, encrypted email, multifactor authentication (MFA), smart card logon, and VPN and Microsoft DirectAccess. These are all vital as part of an enterprise IT security infrastructure to protect access and authenticate communications with the data sources for data transfers.

This new family of PocketVault Smart USB 3.0 storage drives enables a Windows or Linux PKI smart card-enabled ecosystem to deliver a true end-to-end authentication and data security approach for organizations with mobile users.
