front with its Halogen-free production. HGST offers optional hard-drive-level encryption for increased data security and models with enhanced availability to deliver high-capacity storage for non-stop environments. Travelstar Z5K320 delivers the right balance of capacity,
power-management and design flexibility to meet the needs of mobile applications in an eco-friendly footprint.
Data Security Option
Travelstar Z5K320 is the fourth generation to feature optional Bulk Data Encryption (BDE)
for hard-drive-level data security.With BDE,the data is scrambled using a key as it is written
to the disk,then descrambled with the key as it is retrieved, giving users the highest level
of data protection available. It also speeds and simplifies the drive re-deployment process.
By deleting the encryption key,the data on the drive is rendered unreadable,thereby eliminating the need for time-consuming data-overwrite.
