    I believe you are referring to Full Hard disk encryption - for that Bitlocker for Windows already does that. Below is also the Windows 7 BitLocker Drive Encryption Security Policy For FIPS 140-2 Validation

    If you may also see this 2006 Whitehouse mandate on Protection of Sensitive Agency Information that reference security controls to the existing NIST Special Publication 800-53, Recommended Security Controls for Federal Information Systems and NIST Special Publication 800-53A, Guide for Assessing the Security Controls in Federal Information Systems. In short FDE is one means to safeguard the disk and there are file level, portable device - as a whole protect data in transit (VPN), data at rest (file/folder/devicedisk) and data in use (codes/memory)

    Solution capability and comparison summary is good ass overview of what is minimal and OS supported

    Specific to Panasonic has the rugged device that claims to meet Department of Defense MIL-STD-810G standards. These standards list various laboratory tests designed to assess the durability of products under a variety of conditions the device might be subject to during its life.,1-1532.html

    For Dell, it has in the past claimed to Latitude E6420 XFR has been independently tested to MIL-STD-810G, IP-65, MIL-STD-461F and UL1604 standards. It is not available and probably there is some equivalent.

    Overall key reference for encryption solution and technology is best to align with the TCG standard that cover data protection domain
