Frequently Asked Questions - SSD

256-bit AES encryption (Advance Encryption Standard) is an International standard which ensures data is encrypted/decrypted following this approved standard. It ensures high security and is adopted by the U.S. government and other intelligence organizations across the world.

Hardware based encryption is where data which is transferred to and from the Integral encrypted SSD is automatically encrypted/decrypted through a AES chip built on the SSD. This is much faster and more secure than a software based encryption system, where data is encrypted/decrypted through a program on the PC/Mac.
