ClevX’s DataLock Secures M.2 SSDs With a Smartphone

CleveX has developed a new self-encrypting drive (SED) platform that is host hardware and operating system agnostic and can be deployed in minutes. CleveX DataLock BT Secured can be applied to almost any internal or external solid state drive or hard disk drive. All you need is a small chip, a Bluetooth antenna, CleveX software and a modern smartphone. The platform can also allow the drive to be unlocked only with certain geolocations.

CleveX’s DataLock BT Secured offers very strong security features, but is a relatively simple platform. On the hardware side, it consists of a small chip that encrypts your data using the AES-256 algorithm and holds a unique PIN code to unlock your data, and a Bluetooth antenna. This little chip can be installed in any of his SSDs or HDDs with the right controller and firmware. CleveX works with all the major developers of SSD controllers, including Marvell, Phison, and Silicon Motion, so drive manufacturers have many choices.
