LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. Trenton Systems, Inc., designer and manufacturer of ruggedized, cybersecure computer systems for defense and aerospace industries, has partnered with cybersecurity solutions company FUTURA Cyber to provide customers with access control security management for FIPS 140-2 self-encrypting drives (SEDs). 

According to the company, FUTURA Cyber's Drive Security Manager (FC-DSM) manages the access control security operations of TCG-enabled storage drives. FUTURA Cyber's offerings include storage access control and key management solutions, cybersecurity advisory services, security orchestration and automation solutions, and incident response services. FUTURA is a Seagate Government Solutions partner and was recently awarded a U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory Phase I SBIR Contract.

Earlier this year, Trenton Systems announced its plan for cooperation with the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC), which is now a requirement in many U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) contracts. In September, Trenton partnered with Star Lab, a Wind River company, to equip its mission-critical computing solutions with the company's cybersecurity software.

Trenton Systems claims that the partnership comes on the heels of an increasing need for FIPS 140-2-certified hard disk drives and solid-state drives within military programs and demanding mission-critical applications. The company claims it is working to incorporate FIPS 140-2-validated drives and related access control and key management solutions into its systems to help customers further enhance the protection of their controlled unclassified data-at-rest.
