SPYRUS® Announces PocketVault 3X Portable USB 3.0 SSD With Suite B Hardware Encryption for Microsoft® Windows®, Macintosh and Linux Computers

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - Feb 25, 2013) - SPYRUS announced today the availability of PocketVault 3X, a portable USB 3.0 Encrypting SSD featuring the same high-assurance hardware encrypting security designed into their Windows To Go certified USB 3.0 SSD drives.

This latest member of the Secured by SPYRUS™ family of USB encrypting devices incorporates advanced military grade hardware security to provide the most secure use-anywhere high performance USB storage drive available today. Like the USB 2.0 PocketVault P-384, it provides secure cross platform portability of data providing support for Microsoft Windows, Mac OSX, Linux and mobile operating systems. Secured By SPYRUS™ technology implements the cryptographic base used by the United States Government to protect Data at Rest. During full disk encryption, every sector of the device's memory is protected with the XTS-AES 256-bit hardware encryption mode recommended by IEEE 1669 and referenced by the NIST SP800-38E standard. 

PocketVault 3X SSD uses the Rosetta Micro™ hardware security module that is built into all SPYRUS encrypting USB product lines for key management and is designed to meet FIPS 140-2 Level 2 and Level 3 specifications to protect user data against unauthorized access to the device.

Unlike competing use-anywhere encrypting USB flash drives, SPYRUS-proprietary key management technology used in the Rosetta Micro never stores a copy of your password anywhere, not on your drive or on a network storage device where your confidential information can be at significant risk from internal or external attacks. Additional authentication and data security applications using the Rosetta Micro onboard PocketVault 3X SSD will be released to be compatible with PocketVault Encryptor applications used on Android, Surface RT, Surface Pro and iPad.

PocketVault USB 3X SSD can also be used as a separate, secondary secure data storage device with the SPYRUS Secure Pocket Drive™ that boots Windows Embedded Standard 7 or Linux or with the Secure Portable Workplace™ and Portable Workplace™ Windows To Go Certified USB 3.0 drives. When used in this manner, PocketVault 3X SSD can provide the significant benefits of greatly increased SSD memory capacities to 100GB and lightning-fast performance for productivity applications.

SPYRUS will be previewing their new high assurance security devices in booth 2333 at the RSA Security Conference 2013 in San Francisco, CA, February 25-28.
