SPYRUS Launched Rosetta TrustedFlash microSDHC: Encrypted Storage and Authentication Platform

By CIOReview | Thursday, March 31, 2016

SAN JOSE, CA: SPYRUS has recently announced Rosetta TrustedFlash™ microSDHC as the newest member of the SPYRUS phratry of high assurance security platforms to protect sensitive data stored on smartphones, tablets, laptops, wearable computing systems, and IoT environments. SPYRUS is a certified provider of hardware-based security and encryption solutions for enterprise and government markets, headquartered in San Jose, California.

SPYRUS TrustedFlash™ microSDHC unambiguously incorporates a FIPS 140-2 Level 3 PKI hardware security module employing advanced processor efficient elliptic curve cryptography coupled with hardware-based AES 256-bit encryption. Organizations in different verticals will be able to protect sensitive data and privately identifiable information (PII) using SPYRUS's military grade security. And to authenticate to networks, cloud services, and other similar devices for local secure collaboration, it is done by using digital certificates stored in the onboard HSM.

Optional AES-256 hardware encryption eases the use of Rosetta TrustedFlash microSDHC in processor nodes for IoT. This in turn enables a wide range of secure functions, which even supports the new Nano Server concept as a Certificate Authority for Non-Person Entities in remote sensor nodes.

"The SPYRUS TrustedFlash platform announced today is the foundation of our data security strategy for mobile devices and the Internet of Things (IoT)," said Tom Dickens, COO, SPYRUS. "It provides the necessary hardware encryption services to protect data at rest and the authentication services for strong two-factor authentication for any network or cloud service. Rosetta microSDHC TrustedFlash cards will strongly protect data on mobile devices such as the Surface Pro without using the precious USB port required by a multitude of other peripherals and provide the same protection for other platforms with only a microSD port. SPYRUS has developed Rosetta microSDHC TrustedFlash over the past several years to ensure that data protection will be strong enough to protect Enterprise trade secrets and Government classified data."

The future security concerns of IoT and mobile network operators (MNOs) and mobile phone manufacturers will be addressed by Rosetta TrustedFlash microSDHC. The platform is highly secure and applications built on the Rosetta microSDHC TrustedFlash platform will enable digital usage rights features, supporting PKI industry security standards to include RSA and elliptic curve cryptography. By 2017, larger configurations—32 GB and 64 GB—can be available for the Rosetta microSDHC TrustedFlash.
