DataGARD Product Family

DataGARD is our flagship ransomware prevention product family.

WORMdisk is the best ransomware prevention product in the world.

It permanently secures data from unauthorized or accidental deletion or modification because protected data cannot be edited, changed, deleted, modified or re-formatted. It has been recognized by the NIST NCCoE SP 1800-11 & 1800-25 Data Integrity Projects for protecting and recovering from ransomware and other destructive events.

WORMdisk protects portions of or entire disk volumes. It provides immediate and irreversible locking of data as it is written. Data can only be read/written by authorized persons, devices, and processes. WORMdisk employs two configuration options for data protection.

  1. Temporary Lock ensure data is locked upon write but can be unlocked and modified with special authorizations. New data can be incrementally written to disk and subsequently locked.
  2. Permanent Lock ensures data is written to disk and subsequently permanently locked at some point in time. Once locked the disk volume is permanently locked and no new data can be written to it.

WORMdisk has been deployed in the US Government to protect law enforcement and military information. It is an exceptional alternative for financial systems, banks, insurance companies, universities, industrial control systems, robotics, building control systems and audit log applications.

WORMdisk is available to the US Government through the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) CDM program and Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) Approved Products List (APL).

ForceField protects data on the fly, as it is written to and read from storage.

Stop exposing your data while it is in use.

ForceField protects data on the fly, as it is written to and read from storage by automatically (en/de)crypting each data block as it is written/read.

ForceField provides disk block level locking as data is read/written to/from disk. Only one block of data is (en/de)crypted at a time, thus preventing the exposure of data to malware or intruders. Data can only be accessed by authorized persons, devices, and processes.

ForceField provides much higher fidelity controls and data security than self-encrypted drives, Bitlocker, and similar solutions. They fail because once the passkey is provided, the entire device is unlocked and vulnerable to hackers. Our immutable hardware-enforced solution implements security controls and enforcement on each individual physical storage device and cannot be bypassed.

ForceField scales nicely with USB thumb drives, individual internal/external disks, SAN/NAS on-premises provisioned storage, Private Web Server or in the Cloud. It has been used for the NIST Data Integrity standard SP 1800-11 & 1800-25 program  for protection against ransomware & other destructive events.

CYBERdisk protects the Master Boot Record from malicious tampering.

Excuse me, your Master Boot Record is open.

CYBERdisk protects operating system boot disks from corruption. 

The Master Boot Record (MBR) on your operating systems is a favorite target of malicious actors.  If they want to shut you down they can merely stop your computers from booting up. Without CYBERdisk your business can be shut down tonight.

Cybersecurity Standards and Compliance

Excuse me, your Master Boot Record is exposed.

The DataGARD product family has supply chain security certifications. 

Recent nation state cybersecurity attacks on the US Government and industries has raised the bar for all cybersecurity product and service vendors. StandGARD took these events very seriously and immediately developed a plan to address supply chain issues.  The technology was subjected to an independent supply chain audit of our hardware sources. A supply chain certification was subsequently issued.  

DataGARD meets NIST and DoD security standards and compliance. 

DataGARD products have undergone extensive government and independent testing, which has validated our security claims. We continue to work closely with the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) to share and promote the adoption and compliance with common cybersecurity standards. 

The US Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) provides data, systems, and network security for the Department of Defense (DoD). DISA has tested and validated WORMdisk and CYBERdisk security technologies (Gen 1). DISA has both confirmed and acknowledged that attackers were unable to change data protected by WORMdisk and CYBERdisk, even after repeated attempts, utilizing the most sophisticated hacking tools available.  

The current NIST and international standards that DataGARD meets includes: 

  • NIST Special Publications 800-37 (the Risk Management Framework), 800-53, 800-59, 800-47, 800-60, 800-160, 800-137, 800-137A, 800-18.  
  • Additional security guidance documents supporting StandGARD’s security claims include NIST Special Publications 800-30, 800-34, 800-61, 800-128, 800-39, 800-53A and NIST Interagency Report (IR) 8011 and NIST IR 806
