Futurex Announces SAS9000 Secure Attached Storage
BULVERDE, Texas --(Business Wire)--
Futurex today announced the release of the SAS9000 Secure Attached
Storage server, an enterprise-class, network-attached storage platform
secured by a FIPS 140-2 Level 3-compliant Secure Cryptographic Device.
The SAS9000 can be integrated into environments containing existing
Futurex products or as a standalone data protection and storage solution
for external applications.
The SAS9000 contains hardware features designed for 24x7 operation in
the most demanding environments and is capable of protecting data such
as encryption keys, certificates, device serial numbers, electronic
medical records, system access logs, and sensitive user data. Using the
SAS9000, organizations can consolidate sensitive data in a single
location, significantly reducing the cost and logistical difficulties of
managing core cryptographic infrastructure for multiple business
The SAS9000 is incorporated as part of Futurex's Enterprise Security
Platform and offers a direct interface with other network-attached
Futurex solutions, including the RKMS Series, Excrypt SSP9000
Enterprise, and Certificate Authority Server. A purpose-built device

Cryptographic Device, physical access to the storage bays is also
protected. Dual-control restricted locks ensure that access is available
only to authorized users. Robust logical security measures, including
dual-factor authentication using smart cards, validate the authenticity
of application access attempts.
