Product Description

The Silicon Data Vault® (SDV) is a cryptographic and access control data protection device for desktop and laptop workstations that asserts absolute control over the host computer’s hard disk drive (HDD) at the earliest stage of boot up, ensuring the user is authenticated before any data can be accessed.

The SDV is manufactured in two models, identified as the Secure Systems Limited Silicon Data Vault® Laptop Version SDV18A03-A2-0003 and Secure Systems Limited Silicon Data Vault® Desktop Version SDV201B03-0003.

The functionality of the two models is identical with the only difference being the physical layout of the underlying hardware.

This distinction allows the Secure Systems Limited Silicon Data Vault® (SDV) to work on standard Desktop and Notebook (Laptop) computers.

Both models execute the same underlying firmware and individual hardware components and are administered by the same management software.
