Ultimate Data Protection

Unique protection for vulnerable data in uncontrolled environments. Capabilities include one-time pad (OTP) encryption and automatic “Virtual Zeroization” key destruction

Product Sheet

qProtect Overview

qProtect delivers powerful data protection for the most sensitive and critical assets, particularly when they are in uncontrolled environments. It offers a much-needed practical solution for the protection of critical mobile data. Capabilities include automatic secure erasure of one-time key material when recording data “virtual zeroization” to protect confidential information wherever it is, now and into the future

qProtect Specs

qProtect 100

Automatic Key Destruction (Zeroization):
• The one-time pad (OTP) key on the device is automatically destroyed during encryption
• Removes need for data destruction or additional zeroization steps
• Data remains accessible to authorized users for decryption in a secure location

qProtect 200

Flexible Data Protection:
• SD/MicroSD card with secure element that protects data using AES-XTS full flash encryption
• Flexible, plug and play system
• Incorporates tamper detection and traditional zeroization capability

• MicroSD form factor
• Delivered with qClient 100, a software development kit adhering to the OASIS Key Management Interoperability Protocol (KMIP) and the PKCS#11 API

Standards & Interoperability:
• KMIP 1.0/1.1/1.2/1.3/1.4/2.0
• Basic and advanced KMIP profiles
• PKCS#11 supported via qClient 100

qProtect Benefits

• qProtect 100 virtual zeroization option automatically destroys encryption keys while the data is encrypted. The data is safe from unauthorized access, but is not destroyed, and can be accessed by authorized personnel in a secure location.
• qProtect 200 data protection option incorporates a secure key store with AES encryption.
