ClevX’s DataLock secures M.2 SSDs with a smartphone

ClevX has developed a new self-encrypting drive (SED) platform that is independent of host hardware and operating system and can be deployed in minutes. ClevX DataLock BT Secured can be applied to almost any internal or external SSD or HDD. All it needs is a small chip, a Bluetooth antenna, software from ClevX and a modern smartphone. The platform can even guarantee that a drive can only be unlocked in certain geolocations.

Although DataLock BT Secured by ClevX offers very powerful security features, it is a relatively simple platform. On the hardware side, it is made up of a small chip that encrypts data using an AES-256 algorithm, contains the unique PIN code to unlock the data, and a Bluetooth antenna. This little chip can be installed on any SSD or HDD, as long as it has the right controller and the right firmware. Since ClevX works with all major SSD controller developers, including Marvell, Phison, and Silicon Motion, drive manufacturers are spoiled for choice.
