Share Article

SECUREDATA's SecureDrive KP and SecureDrive BT have both been awarded FIPS 140-2 Level 3 Certification, making the SecureDrive product line one of the most secure storage solutions available on the market today.

SecureDrive BT & SecureDrive KP awarded FIPS 140-2 Level 3 certification.

Today SECUREDATA announced that two of its products - SecureDrive® KP with built-in keypad user-authentication and SecureDrive® BT with wireless Bluetooth user-authentication - have achieved Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2 Level 3 Certification from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST):

SecureDrive® KP and SecureDrive® BT are hardware-encrypted external portable data storage drives (HDD/SSD) with host/OS-independent user-authentication that bring together the top-rated security with ease of use.

The SecureDrive® KP is the thinnest, portable and ultra-durable aluminum hardware encrypted external drive on the market, more compact than most smartphones. Easy to use, plug-and-play user experience with on-board alphanumeric 11 button keypad featuring a special wear-resistant (anti-fingerprint) coating that keeps your password sequence safe. SecureDrive® KP is hardware encrypted using an on-board processor to generate and store the unique encryption key, preventing the ability for a hacker to capture the key on the host Operating System.

SecureDrive® BT is the world’s first hardware encrypted drive that is user-authenticated via a mobile device (Android/Apple) using DataLock® mobile apps. The device is remote management ready with unlock, remote wipe, geo-fencing, and time fencing. It is Host/OS-independent and works with and across all devices supporting USB ports.

Both SecureDrive® KP and SecureDrive® BT are manufactured by SECUREDATA and are using patented DataLock® KP/BT technology licensed from ClevX, LLC.

“FIPS 140-2 Level 3 certification of the SecureDrive® KP and BT marks another key milestone in the company’s effort to provide the most secure data protection solutions for the regulated industries, such as government, finance, healthcare, legal and military,” said Michael Vanoverbeke, Product Management Director of SECUREDATA. “This is a great start of 2019 for our company. SecureDrive® BT has also been recognized as CES 2019 Innovation Awards Honoree in the Computer Accessory Category. With FIPS certification for both KP and BT versions of SecureDrives, we are able to further deliver on the data security objectives of our discerning customers.”

Launched in spring 2018, SecureDrive® BT has won its recognition for its many firsts:

  • First ever secure Bluetooth product that received FIPS 140-2 Certification;
  • First ever mobile app authenticated hardware encrypted drive;
  • First ever completely software free remote managed drive (using a web interface);
  • First ever not IP based geo-fencing and time-fencing (using the geolocations of mobile devices);
  • First ever hardware encrypted device which allows the user to unlock the drive with FaceID or Touch ID;
  • First ever hardware encrypted drive that can be unlocked via SmartWatch.

SecureDrive® BT will be on display in the Innovation Awards Showcase at CES 2019 in Las Vegas, NV along with its sister product SecureUSB® BT that was recognized as CES 2019 Innovation Award Honoree in Cybersecurity and Personal Privacy Category.
