Self Encrypting Drives (SED) in FDE Technical Level
Solution

You can use Self Encrypting Drives with Full Disk Encryption. The requirements are:

  • Windows versions in UEFI mode. See the Release Notes for your FDE version for an exact list of supported Windows versions.
  • UEFI firmware that implements the UEFI ATA Pass-through protocol or the UEFI Security Command Protocol
  • TCG Opal compliant drives version 1.0 or 2.0
  • SATA controller 
  • NVMe controller starting with version E80.81 

This means that any system meeting the requirements and equipped with a TCG Opal compliant drive is supported.

Check Point has tested the SED support with the drives listed in the below table.

Note that this list is not an exhaustive list of supported drives. The list contains drives explicitly tested by Check Point and known to satisfy the above requirements for a Self Encrypting Drive.
