Product Description

A new generation of compact higher speed, high-capacity RAID 1 2-bay drive

This drive is perfect for fast data transfer and large-capacity storage needs. Its new USB 3.2 Gen 2 interface now supports 10 Gbps of fast data transfer. SSD uses this speedier transfer to boost speed over a hard drive. This 2-Bay RAID drive supports RAID 1 data redundancy and automatic backup. In addition, the eSATA interface provides additional connection possibilities. Removable drive trays help with hot plug replacement of the drive. Drive intelligent sleep function is supported. Cooling fan maintains safe operating temperature. Skidproof and shockproof rubber feet mat ensure safe operation. This drive is perfect for data storage and backup.

CipherShield Dual Keys 2FA Two-factor Authentication FIPS 140-2 hardware encryption

  • Colateral – two-factor authentication with two different keys, keys can be plugged in and removed to store away while powered on. It will remain authenticated until the power is turned off. Suitable for when human insertion of the key is feasible such as a local office.
  • Bilateral – two-factor authentication with two different keys, keys must remain plugged in while powered on to remain authenticated. Suitable for when human insertion of key is not feasible such as data center or remote location.

CipherShield drive safeguards and protects classified information when they are too important to be left in the hand of one individual. To gain access to the drive, authentication will be based on one unique Cipherkey. It requires one key to be plugged in all the time while working with the drive. It is like getting a safe deposit box that takes one key to open. It is suitable for group settings where more than one individual is working on highly confidential projects. i.e. blueprints for the company’s new products, top secret programs, highly confidential legal cases, sensitive customer records, and financial information.

CipherShield design features a chip embedded in the access key which matches the AES encryption module on the controller board. The drive will automatically lock down its content once the key is unplugged, or power is shut off. And without the access key, data will not be seen or accessed in the event of theft or loss of the external drive. Data stored on the hard drive are safeguarded by a hardware-based National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) certified industrial strength AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) cryptographic engine. The advantage of hardware encryption over software encryption is that you need not be concerned about Trojans/viruses or software upgrades, which results in a decrease in the total cost of ownership. Since CipherShield encrypts data independent of the operating system; removing the drive and connecting it directly to the SATA BUS will not defeat the encryption. The unit is bundled with two keys and registration is required for key duplication.
