AES 256-bit Encryption
The security standard trusted by the US government and many international security agencies. It’s an efficient and highly secure way of encrypting data to keep it safe from hackers and other bad actors.
ATA Secure Erase
When this command is given, an SSD will reset all its storage cells to empty, releasing trapped electrons and restoring the drive to its original state. This operation completely wipes data from the drive.
Apacer’s CoreSecurity2 is a proprietary data protection technology developed to elevate the data security level through customized firmware and prevent data leakage, delivering higher reliability for storage devices.
FIPS, which stands for Federal Information Processing Standard, is a computer security standard that was created by the US government. It accredits the design of cryptographic modules and the implementations of these modules.
Apacer based the Instant Keychange™ function on AES encryption, and it can be trigged either via hardware or software. Destroying the original key and creating a new one takes less than a second – much faster than traditional forms of drive erasure.
NVMe Secure Erase
When this command is given, NVMe Secure Erase can securely wipe out the user data in the drive and protects it from malicious attack.
Apacer’s Signed Firmware technology is a secure way to update firmware. By including a digital signature, a firmware update will be authenticated by the Apacer SSD before a firmware update is performed. This extra layer of protection keeps drives secure.
TCG Opal 2.0
TCG Opal handles the encryption/decryption of information within the device without requiring a host, enabling fast encryption/ decryption and minimizing the risk of data leakage without undermining system performance.
Write Protect can prevent drives from unauthorized data writing via a hardware switch/pin or vendor software command.
