Flexxon launched today the first solid-state drive (SSD) of the world embedded with (AI) artificial intelligence data protection, in the form of the new Flexxon X-PHY AI-embedded NVMe SSD. The brand-new SSD is rolling out with government agencies and industrial and medical customers and although not yet available to consumers, is expected to hit businesses by September 2021 and the mass consumer market in early 2022.
Camellia Chan, founder and chief executive officer of Flexxon explains in the press release “With innovations like the X-PHY, we will be better equipped to leverage on the benefits of technology while safeguarding ourselves against rising cyber threats.”
As the “last line of defence” to guard data at the hardware level, the SSD is capable of defending against both physical and remote attacks, claiming a range of features including temperature sensors to detect abnormal movements. In the event of such an intrusion, the device – also known as the X-PHY – will alert the user through email and lock itself to block any physical tampering. Users can then unlock the device through a dynamic authentication process.
For clients with high security needs, such as the military, data may be automatically wiped should the device fall into the wrong hands.”

“Projected by Cybersecurity Ventures, the cost of cybercrimes will greatly increase from $3 trillion in 2015 to over $10.5 trillion by 2025. Also, 63% of the companies have reported that there was a potential compromise due to hardware or silicon-level security breach over the past 12 months.”
