Solid Data Security Solutions

Is Your Security Strategy Secure?

Data security is among the most important issues facing IT professionals. The stakes are high for U.S. federal government organizations. With Micron’s secure storage devices, our built-in features will guard your user data and better protect the integrity of your SSD firmware against attacks. Whether you deploy Micron’s client or enterprise SSDs, encrypted or non-encrypted – data security is a top priority for us.

Security Options

With more than 35 years experience in the semiconductor industry, Micron has a proven history of delivering mission-critical memory and storage solutions. Our SSDs safeguard sensitive data with hardware encryption, software, and standards-based security features, and they have been validated as well.

Hardware, Software and Standards-Based Tools

  • AES 256-Bit Hardware Encryption Engine: Keeps data private between sender and intended recipients.
  • Solid Secure Firmware: Provides a solid defense to protect the storage platform against low-level attacks.Standards-Based Security: Micron is a contributing member of the Trusted Computing Group. Our SSDs follow one of these two specifications:
  1. TCG Opal 2.0 compliance for secure client computing, available with IEEE-1667 compliance for compatibility with Windows server and desktop
  2. TCG Enterprise compliance for SSDs in the data center and enterprise data storage
  • Standards-Based Sanitize: Includes commands executable from Micron’s Storage Executive software (GUI or command line, Windows and Linux).


FIPS 140-2 Level 2 ValidationFIPS 140-2 Level 2 Validation: Provides assurance that Micron’s SSDs meet requirements for cryptographic security and interoperability validation.


Trade Agreement Act (TAA)Trade Agreement Act (TAA): Provides assurance that Micron’s TAA-approved SSDs are manufactured in a TAA-designated country, easing supply chain management for government accounts.

With Micron SSDs, you can be assured of getting data storage solutions that meet the highest standards in security, performance and reliability, along with these other advantages: 

  • Encryption Without Performance Penalty: Encrypted SSDs run at the same speed as their non-encrypted counterparts; the encryption workload is managed at the drive level without pulling down the CPU performance.

  • Improved TCO: Encrypted SSDs have the same TCO advantages as Micron’s other SSDs, with the added advantage of hardware encryption.
  • Simplified Key Management: Our SSDs generate and securely store the encryption key, removing that function from the host computer or data center.

  • Safe Device Retirement/Redeployment: The instant scramble erase (ISE) feature securely sanitizes all user data in seconds, eliminating the need for slow, costly legacy sanitization methods and enabling redeployment instead of wasteful device destruction.
