SanDisk's new X300s SSD uses both the Trusted Computing Group's Opal 2.0 specification and Microsoft Encrypted Hard Drive hardware-based encryption to protect data on the drive.

The X300s SSD comes equipped with Wave System's Embassy Security Center (ESC) as part of the upcoming SanDisk SSD Dashboard software suite. Wave's ESC is a local client application that manages the X300s by determining who can access the encrypted data via user and password set-up. The inclusion of Wave's ESC on each X300s SSD includes local management of each drive.
