    Encryption option
    • The Hitachi 0A57915 Travelstar 5K500 Mobile Hard Drive features optional Bulk Data Encryption (BDE) for hard-drive-level data security. Hitachi is working with the Trusted Computing Group (TCG) to ensure that our new products are complaint with the forthcoming Storage Security specification that is expected to become an industry standard.
      With BDE, the data is scrambled using a key as it is written to the disk then descrambled with the key as it is retrieved, giving users the highest level of data protection available. In addition, it speeds and simplifies the drive re-deployment process. By deleting the encryption key, the data is rendered unreadable, therefore doing away with the need for time-consuming data-overwrite.
