DIGISTOR Creates a New Industry Standard for Secure Removable Drives

VaultDisk is a removable solid state drive in a smaller, sleeker form factor.

Campbell, CA — February 14, 2018 — DIGISTOR, the leader in secure data and storage solutions, is pleased to announce the release of VaultDisk®, a removable solid state SATA drive compatible with the 2.5” industry standard in a smaller, sleeker form factor. This removable, bootable storage solution was designed specifically for the federal space and can be utilized in a variety of Dell workstations and laptop systems. For administrators required to switch in and out of multiple networks and security clearance levels, VaultDisk® provides a game changing solution.

System administrators in the federal space have long had difficulties with immobile hard drives. How does one insure the security of a boot drive when entering and exiting networks with varying levels of security clearance? How can one move between operating systems seamlessly? How can one easily remove a drive to clone it or store it when the computer must leave the premises? Traditionally, in all these cases, the administrator had to remove the drive manually. This meant carrying around tiny screwdrivers and losing even more minuscule screws. Many would try to shave minutes off this laborious process by leaving screws out of the laptop so they could take it apart faster. This was not only a liability to the integrity of the drive, but also exposed the computer’s internal components to dust and debris.

DIGISTOR’s VaultDisk® SSD solves all these issues by providing a secure, removable drive that can mount and boot the system in seconds. The flexibility, ease, and most of all, speed of interchanging drives is unparalleled in the current market. In addition to allowing administrators to easily switch in and out of multiple networks, VaultDisk® also enables enterprises to maximize software licenses internally—a feature that by itself provides a great degree of value.

Knowing how much wear these drives can take, DIGISTOR enhanced VaultDisk’s most sensitive point of contact. While many drives use plastic for connecting with a standard 2.5” drive bay, VaultDisk® was enhanced with a durable fiberglass coupling, ensuring the lifespan and utility of these storage devices.

“We created this new standard form factor to be compatible with the existing 2.5” drive size but small enough to be used as a removable boot drive. This was a huge request by our customers in the federal and security industries and we’re glad to be able to provide a robust solution,” says Murray Ellis, Director of Engineering at DIGISTOR. “Equipped with VaultDisk®, admins finally have the flexibility to move and work between networks and operating systems more freely than ever before.”
