DIGISTOR®, a leading provider of secure Data At Rest (DAR) storage solutions, and Cigent® Technology, Inc., a leader in embedded cybersecurity, announced a technology partnership to expand data security across the entire lifecycle of a storage drive from initial deployment to end-of-life for military, defense, and critical infrastructure applications.
“We are excited to forge the partnership and believe that together we can offer a wider breadth of solutions for secure data storage,” said Robin Wessel, Executive Vice President, CDSG. “This partnership complements our recent Citadel™ pre-boot authentication news and is part of our strategy to help military and defense customers address the ever-increasing and varied threats challenging nations’ security.”
The effort will combine Cigent’s Dynamic Data Defense Engine™ (D³E®) with DIGISTOR encrypted SSD storage products. By integrating Cigent’s zero-trust file access software and firmware-based cybersecurity technology into DIGISTOR FIPS 140-2 L2 firmware and Common Criteria (CC) certified SSD drives, the companies will deliver a suite of products that address evolving and potentially catastrophic security threats. In addition, bundling Cigent’s D³E security solutions and services with the DIGISTOR line of commercial self-encrypting drives (SED) will increase storage security by protecting critical infrastructure at all times by combining software and hardware-based encryption with file-level multi-factor authentication.
“We are pleased to work with DIGISTOR and believe the combination of our expertise and technologies will provide a powerful range of Secure Storage solutions that will meet the diverse requirements and environments of today’s military and agency operations,” said Bradley Rowe, CEO at Cigent.
