WinMagic Certified Secure Validation

Today SanDisk announced their new SSD offering, the X300s – it’s their first drive to feature encryption capabilities. As part of this announcement, WinMagic also announced that SanDisk is the first drive partner we work with to complete the WinMagic Certified Secure Validation program.

The Certified Secure Validation program is a rigorous testing and qualification process for Self-Encrypting Drive (SED) Manufactures to work through to ensure seamless compatibility with SecureDoc. Through the program, drive manufactures like SanDisk have access to dedicated development and quality assurance support through a collaborative process to ensure end-users have peace-of-mind when selecting an SED for their SecureDoc deployment.

This validation is the beginning of many and we’ll continue to update readers as we validate more suppliers of SEDs and SED firmware drivers.
