Diamond Cipher Mobile Rack for SATA HDDs with IDE or SCSI Internal Connection

The Diamond Cipher Mobile Rack Kit (MR) features the new generation of eSATA hard drive enclosures with the 256-bit AES hard encryption and choice of  ECB or CBC mode. The encryption is FIPS certified to ensure absolute data security should the drive get stolen or lost. The crypto engine inside the Diamond Cipher enclosure handles all the encryption and decryption on the fly with no detectable performance degradation on data transfer. Using native eSATA interface, the Diamond Cipher Mobile Rack supports the highest performance possible today through an externally connected hard drive enclosure.

The Diamond Cipher Mobile Rack is designed to enable any SATA hard drive to be use as a removable hard drive via an Diamond IDE or SCSI drive cradle installed inside the standard 5 1/4" drive bay of a computer. Constructed in heavy gauge aluminum with precision finish for smooth operation, the Diamond Cipher Mobile Rack is built to last while at the same time providing excellent heat dissipation for the hard drive.

With size slightly larger than a VCR cassette, the Diamond Cipher drive enclosure comes with both eSATA and SATA connector. The eSATA connector allows the Diamond Cipher drive enclosure to be used as an external eSATA hard drive using a standard eSATA cable and an optional power adapter. The Diamond Cipher drive enclosure can also be attached to the USB port of any computer with an optional USB - eSATA adapter.

The Diamond Cipher drive enclosure comes with built in eSATA port that allows the SATA hard drive to be used as an external eSATA hard drive by connecting with an optional eSATA cable and external power adapter. The SATA direct bridge inside the drive enclosure also isolates the SATA hard drive power and data connectors from the wears and tears incurred in some of the removable SATA hard drive system. 2.5" SATA hard drive can also be installed into the Diamond drive enclosure using the optional 2.5" hard drive mounting bracket.

 

Encryption features (for Diamond Cipher only)

  • Full disk encryption via a hardware-based NIST and CSE certified cryptographic AES engine
  • FIPS 140-2 certified Crypto Module listed in NIST
  • Choice of ECB or CBC mode of encryption
  • High performance - Data is encrypted and decrypted on the fly by a certified cryptographic engine inside an ASIC without taking any CPU resources
  • Encryption / Decryption via a hardware key , just like using a regular key to open a door.
    To enable the encryption and access the drive, simply the Cipher key into the keyhole of the Diamond Cipher enclosure prior to turn on the power.
  • Simple to deploy with no training required, no software to install and no password to remember
  • Platform independency - There is no software or driver to install to use Addonics encryption products. As a result, it can be deployed in any systems running any OS. This is important in organization with multi platform computing and legacy system
