Toshiba Debuts the World's First Self-Encrypting Drive for MFPs

Toshiba SED Will Offer Automatic Security Function to Bring New Levels of Data Protection (January 24, 2012)

IRVINE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/24/12 -- Toshiba America Business Solutions, Inc. (http://business.toshiba.com), announces the debut of the world's first Self-Encrypting Drive (SED) equipped with proprietary wipe technology for multifunction printers (MFPs). This new Toshiba technology allows users to determine a range of security settings, including the invalidation of encryption keys and data invalidation when a drive is removed from its housing or connected to an unauthorized host system.

"As the needs of our customers constantly evolve, Toshiba is committed to remaining at the forefront of product innovation," said Joseph Contreras, director, Product and Solutions Marketing, Toshiba America Business Solutions, Inc. "Toshiba's new SED security technology improves data security and reduces the risk of sensitive information stored on copiers and printers leaving your company. When the SED is removed or stolen from the MFP and installed into another device, the data is invalidated automatically. If the SED is returned to the MFP without being installed into another device, data will not be invalidated and is accessible."

This new Toshiba SED technology is unlike other data protection. Unlike other models, data encryption using industry-standard AES 256-bit solution is performed by the SED itself and not the controller. The encryption key is also securely stored on the SED and not the controller for added data protection. Security measures can also be activated when the MFP is at the end of its lease or end-of-life through a service technician who can instantly invalidate stored data.

Toshiba's new generation eBRIDGE Platform based product lineup, the e-STUDIO 6550c Series e-STUDIO 4540c Series, 856 Series, and 456 Series, are equipped with the new SED.
