Viasat introduces next-generation data-at-rest encryption storage device

DataEnterprise SecurityEuropeTop Stories

Viasat UK, a subsidiary of global communications company, Viasat, has announced a next-generation encryption storage solution, the data-at-rest cryptography solid state drive (DARC-SSD).

This is the latest addition to Viasat’s hardware encryption family, providing secure data protection for government and defence agencies around the world.

Data-at-rest technology safeguards against when a device is stolen, lost or attacked, enabling the data to be entirely protected and secure, even without the device on hand. With threats increasing from adversaries, new encryption technology is critical to maintaining secure control over Intellectual Property (IP), personal and financial data, as well as protecting sensitive mission information that could put military operations at risk. 

Andrew Dobson, Chief Technology Officer, Viasat UK, said: “Our continued investment and innovation in encryption and data-at-rest cryptography aims to help customers stay ahead of modern adversaries and have solutions that meet evolving device and operating system security needs.”

Unlike previous Viasat encryption solutions, the DARC-SSD uses a Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) interface, which offers increased compatibility and integration with the latest commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) devices. Its small hardware footprint is designed to offer defence customers advanced data-at-rest encryption capabilities for protecting sensitive information on smaller, more compact laptops, tablets and small form factor (SFF) machines.
