DigiSAFE DiskCrypt Mobile DCM500, an enterprise grade 2.5” USB external hard disk enclosure with built-in customized encryption feature, belongs to DigiSAFE DiskCrypt Mobile family series. DCM500 has an on-board hardware programmable encryption engine to support customized algorithm. This allows organizations with specific requirements to deploy DCM500 with its own custom algorithm. DCM500 also employs twofactor authentication with the use of smart card and PIN to enhance the security.
As a hardware-based full disk encryption (FDE) device, DCM500 transparently encrypts the entire hard disk on-the-fly for total data protection without compromising the performance. It is operating system (OS) independent and requires no software installation.

DCM500 Algorithm Integration Kit
DCM500 ensures that all the data stored (or backed up) on the hard disk is fully encrypted and safe from the prying eyes. What’s more, the smartcard (containing the encryption key) as well as the correct PIN are both required to unlock the data, giving you the ultimate level of protection, yet ease of use.
An operating system such as Linux can be installed on DCM500 to allow the user to carry a “portable OS”. This also means your operating system is fully encrypted on DCM500. Of course, both the host machine and the operating system must support booting from a USB device in the first place. Approach your OS vendor to advise.
