Dubai, UAE, April 9, 2017 – Western Digital Corporation, (NASDAQ: WDC), a global storage technology and solutions leader, today introduced its fastest WD® brand portable drive yet, the My Passport™ SSD. Featuring blazing-fast speeds and award-winning design, the new My Passport SSD compliments the company's leading portfolio of My Passport palm-sized storage devices. Designed for content creators and tech enthusiasts, the new My Passport SSD combines exceptional speed and portability to manage massive files on the go.

Built for PC and compatible with Mac, My Passport SSD offers peace-of-mind with 256-bit AES hardware encryption and password protection, and is also 6.5-foot drop tested for shock-resistance to withstand 1500G of force, to help keep precious data safe.

My Passport SSD is the perfect storage solution to rapidly manage large photo and video libraries, quickly back up files and important documents, run virtual machines from, or expand your SSD-laptop storage anywhere you take your computer. The new drive is available in 1TB, 512GB and 256GB capacities**, and comes with WD Backup™ software that enables users to automatically back up their stuff.
