Self Encrypting Drives are the most secure, best-performing and most transparent encryption option for protecting data on laptops. These drives automatically encrypt all data written to the drive, so you don’t have to decide what’s important enough to encrypt. They also perform this encryption in the hardware of the drive, so you don’t end up with the performance issues software full-disk encryption is infamous for. SEDs are available as HDD or SSD, and are sold by most major drive manufacturers.
