Product Description

This BUSlink 2-Bay RAID 1 hard drive supports large capacity and USB 3.2 Gen 1/eSATA interface. It supports RAID 1 mirroring (backup). Removable HDD trays support hot-plug replacement of drives. HDD intelligent sleep function is supported. Cooling fan maintain safe operating temperature. Skidproof and shockproof rubber feet mat ensure safe operation.

CipherShield Colateral dual keys encrypted external hard 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 two unique Cipherkeys. It requires one master key to be plugged in and remove to activate the drive to be ready to authenticate with the user key. It is a higher-level two-factor authentication with a master key and user key. It is suitable for group settings where a manager is in control of the master key that must be used to activate the drive in readiness for the user key.

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 the 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. You do not need to remember complicated passwords or PINs. 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. Unit is bundled with four keys and registration is required for key duplication.
