Addonics Technologies built a hard drive kit with built-in eSATA and SATA connectors that allows any 2.5-inch SATA hard drive or SSD to be used as a removable drive cartridge or an external eSATA storage device with the highest level 256-bit AES hardware encryption.
The Ruby Cipher Drive Kit comes with all the important features required in a portable hard drive: rugged anodized aluminum housing for rough handling and efficient heat dissipation; shock proof and vibration protection for the hard drive; and light weight and compact size. The kit is also 100 percent operating system transparent for easy integration into any computing environment.
The 256-bit AES hardware encryption incorporated inside the Ruby Cipher enclosure is secure enough to protect classified information designated as “Top Secret”, which is defined as information which would cause “exceptionally grave damage” to national security.
The Addonics Ruby Cipher Hard Drive Kit is also the first enclosure solution to provide native SATA encryption on the fly with no detectable performance degradation to the hard drive through a simple encryption key. Adding encryption to any storage environment requires no password to remember, and no software drivers or special training. Encrypting and decrypting is as simple as opening a door with the cipher key.
The Ruby Cipher drive enclosure introduces Addonics’ first SATA direct bridge design, which connects the hard drive to the computer in native SATA mode. The SATA direct bridge also isolates the SATA hard drive power and data connectors from the wear and tear incurred in some of the removable SATA hard drive systems.
Addonics offers a wide assortment of IO converters, cables and accessories to give the Ruby Cipher enclosure and cradle unlimited connection and installation possibilities. The flexibility, compatibility, and adaptive features of the Ruby Cipher drive kit enable users to start with the minimum components they need, then add other storage components as their application grows.
