Addonics announced a family of Cipher Raid Towers with AES 256-bit full disk hardware encryption, a solution for applications that require reliable storage with redundancy and advanced data security protection.
The FIPS certified hardware crypto engine integrated inside the tower encrypts and decrypts data on the fly without utilizing any system resources and thus ensures the maximum performance of the RAID system.
Users can select from two Addonics’ RAID encryption architectures – Drive Level Encryption (DLE) and RAID Volume Encryption (RVE). Both DLE and RVE offer strong AES 256-bit encryption but at a different price performance.
The Cipher RAID Tower is simple to use and easy to deploy. There is no software to install or special training required. It operates and performs just the same as an ordinary RAID system.
The Cipher RAID Tower can also connect to the new SuperSpeed USB 3.0 port with an optional USB 3.0 – eSATA adapter.
Prices range from $299 to $629 for the seven models.
