Mission critical on the inside, too

When we think “mission critical,” often the first things to come to mind are physical ruggedness … packaging … soldering. But data security is just as imperative. Surely this is what Panasonic had in mind when it partnered with , Inc. in suiting certain models of Panasonic’s rugged notebook Toughbooks with Mobile Armor’s DriveArmor data security management, enterprise-class solution.

Accordingly, the Toughbook 19 and the Toughbook 31’s new DriveArmor arsenal provides policy-driven control for desktop computers and notebook PCs via 2.5″, FIPS-compliant Seagate Technology Momentus self-encrypting disk drives. The DriveArmor data security management solution renders “extensive auditing and reporting capabilities,” pre-boot authentication, and centralized management, all to thwart unauthorized data access on stolen or lost computers. Meanwhile, the Toughbook 19 laptop convertible tablet features the Intel Core i5 and a 10.4″ sunlight-viewable touchscreen at 1,000 nits and is MIL-STD-810G compliant. The Toughbook 31 rugged clamshell computer features the Intel Core i3 and i5 processor, meets MIL-STD-810G, and features a 1,100-nit, 13.1″ touchscreen and IP65 certification.
