Seagate FIPS-Certified and OPAL-Compliant Momentus® Self-Encrypting Drives Integrate With DriveArmor™, a Component of the Mobile Armor Data Encryption & Device Management Suite

ST. LOUIS, MO and SCOTTS VALLEY, CA--(Marketwire - October 25, 2010) -  Mobile Armor, Inc., a leader in data encryption and mobile device management, and Seagate Technology (NASDAQ: STX), the worldwide leader in hard disk drives and storage solutions, today announced a strategic relationship to include co-marketing and sales activities to reach government, healthcare and other customers demanding self-encrypting drive solutions to lock down their personal computers.

Mobile Armor DriveArmor is an enterprise-class solution for policy-driven control for managing data security on laptops and desktops with FIPS-certified and the OPAL-compliant self-encrypting disk drives from Seagate. DriveArmor delivers centralized management, strong pre-boot authentication and extensive auditing and reporting capabilities to Seagate® Momentus® Self-Encrypting Drives (SEDs), designed to prevent unauthorized access to data on lost or stolen computers.

Seagate Momentus SEDs deliver government-grade encryption and pre-boot authentication without performance degradation to protect data where it lives -- on the hard drive. The Seagate Momentus drives are the only self-encrypting hard drives to be FIPS 140-2 Validated™ to protect sensitive data. By coupling the Seagate drives with Mobile Armor DriveArmor management and reporting features, organizations are able to meet their regulatory compliance requirements for data protection. 

"The FIPS certification of Seagate Momentus Self-Encrypting Drives is a crucial step in expanding the adoption of these drives by federal agencies, many state and local governments, and regulated industries such as healthcare, finance and defense," said David Seesorf, Senior Director of Notebook Product Line Management, Seagate. "Seagate is teaming with leaders such as Mobile Armor to deliver the management and auditing capabilities that business and government need to protect sensitive information."

DriveArmor is just one product in Mobile Armor's arsenal of fortified data encryption and device management products. Mobile Armor is the only vendor to offer a fully integrated, centrally managed data encryption suite that protects mobile and desktop PCs, smartphones, CD/DVDs, removable media and ships FIPS certified 140-2 level 3 USB encrypted flash drives with embedded anti-virus protection. The Mobile Armor Suite may be delivered on-premise or in a SaaS hosted environment. The Mobile Armor Data Encryption and Device Management Suite incorporates PolicyServer™, DataArmor™, FileArmor™, KeyArmor™ and DriveArmor™.
