Hello Dibaumi,

Our Intel® SSD 530 Series offers AES-256-bit Hardware Encryption, however, if your BIOS does not offer the possibility of inserting a password, then, this action will not be possible. Currently, we don't have any software that offers this kind of service. There might be third-party tools that offer this services out there.
