Built-in Data Protection

Seagate Secure Instant Secure Erase drives simplify drive repurposing and disposal, protect data-at-rest and help comply with corporate and federal data security mandates.

Prevent unauthorized access and safeguard stored data with three levels of security, including Secure Downloads & Diagnostics (SD&D), TCG compliant Self-Encrypting Drive and government-grade FIPS/Common Criteria tamper-resistant hard drive. *

Data Management Made Easy

  • Simplify infrastructure management with the FastFormat feature for advanced format (4Kn and 512e)
  • Unprecedented power savings during idle times with PowerChoice technology for TCO improvement
  • Use Instant Secure Erase for easy drive disposal and repurposing if and when needed
*Seagate Secure Self-Encrypting Drives (SED) are not available in all models or countries. May require TCG-compliant host or controller support.
