What is Self-Encrypting Drive(SED) Technology in Samsung SSD 840 SATA-3(MZ-7TD500)?

Last Update Date : Aug 08. 2018
Self-Encrypting Drive (SED) is a term that refers to a Samsung storage device that implements data encryption automatically therefore helping in keeping data in the device safe.

(SED Technology Encryption)

Some of the advantages are:
• SEDs boast better performance, security, and manageability compared to software-based FDE (Full Drive Encryption) implementations.
• As the encryption key exists inside the SED itself, it is impossible to access it via the host (operating system).
• Since SEDs provide drive-level encryption that is independent of the operating system, users can easily install an SED into any system without worrying about operating system or application interference.
