High Performance Removable Drive System With Full Disk Encryption

Addonics Technologies released an external removable drive system with high performance Full Disk Encryption

San Jose, CA /PRNewswire/ - Addonics Technologies (www.addonics.com) today announced Sapphire Cipher II Snap-In, an external removable drive system with high-performance Full Disk Hardware Encryption.

The Sapphire Cipher II Snap-In is Addonics' second generation encryption solution with support of SATA 6G speed. It is a high performance and simple solution to secure any 3.5" or 2.5" SATA HDD/SSD with FIPS-140-2 certified AES 256-bit full disk hardware encryption. It connects to any system via eSATA or USB 3.1/3.0 port and drives are added or removed from the Sapphire Cipher Snap-In like a VHS cassette.

Encryption is activated by a simple insertion of a Cipher key, just like locking a door. There is no password to remember or special software to install. If the drive is stolen or lost, all the information in it is inaccessible without the Cipher key. The Sapphire Cipher II Snap-In is OS independent and can be connected to any system. It is an ideal solution to secure sensitive data stored in any hard drive and SSD or to transport drives containing sensitive information, particularly for organizations with heterogeneous computing environments and legacy systems.

The Sapphire Cipher II Snap-In encrypts and decrypts data on the fly using an onboard FIPS 140-2 certified AES crypto engine. Unlike software encryption products that depend on the system CPU to encrypt and decrypt the data, the Sapphire Cipher II Snap-In has no impact on CPU utilization. This allows the system CPU to perform its computing tasks at normal speed. There is minimal impact on the performance of the hard drive or SSD.

Price for the Sapphire Cipher II Snap-In is $179 for model equipped with USB 3.1 interface.
