NORCROSS, GEORGIA: - AMI, a global leader in BIOS and UEFI firmware, server and remote management tools, data storage products and unique solutions based on the Linux® and Android™ operating systems, is proud to announce support for Pyrite Password Protected Drives.
The Trusted Computing Group (TCG) releases a specification called the "Opal SED Specification" that governs hard drive protection and encryption standards. AMI previously announced support for Opal and Opalite and now AMI has added password support for Pyrite. With the support for Pyrite, AMI enables drives that have a hardware mechanism to protect access without the need to carry out encryption of user data.
AMI has worked with several industry partners to develop and validate the support for Pyrite. By introducing this support, OEMs can create solutions at lower costs than Opal or Opalite while maintaining the security of the data.
