Ruby Cipher Combo Hard Drive for SATA HDDs with eSATA or USB 3.0/2.0 External Connection

The Ruby Cipher Combo Hard Drive (RCCHD) features the new generation of eSATA hard drive enclosures with the 256-bit AES hard encryption to ensure absolute data security should the drive get stolen or lost. The crypto engine inside the Ruby Cipher enclosure handles all the encryption and decryption on the fly with no detectable performance degradation on data transfer. Using native eSATA interface, the RCCHD supports the highest performance possible today through an externally connected hard drive enclosure.

The RCCHD is probably the most versatile storage solution in the market. This kit comes with all the necessary component to allow any 2.5" SATA hard drive to be used as a drive cartridge and as an external high performance eSATA hard drive. Constructed in heavy gauge aluminum with precision finish for smooth operation, the RCCHD is built to last while at the same time providing excellent heat dissipation for the hard drive. Comes built in with the Addonics SATA direct bridge interface, the Ruby Cipher Drive enclosure allows the SATA hard drive to appear as a direct connection to the host both in eSATA mode or SATA mode while at the same time isolating the SATA hard drive power and data connectors from the wears and tears incurred in some of the removable SATA hard drive system. The shock absorption technology in the drive enclosure together with a rugged annodized housing also provides strong protection to the hard drive against and vibration.

When used as a drive cartridge, the hard drive can be swapped in and out of your computer without restarting your system. Instead of a slow tape cartridge, you enjoy the fast performance of the SATA hard drive. Once the OS detects the presence of the Ruby Cipher Drive enclosure (cartridge), it appears as an additional hard drive to the system. There is no driver to install or special software required to do data backup or restoration. Data is stored uncompressed in its own native file format and can be accessed readily by any application program. When used as an external hard drive via eSATA connection to a computer, the hard drive performs at the full speed and can achieve data transfer up to 3 times the speed of the standard USB or Firewire interfaces.

 

Encryption features (for Ruby 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
  • 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 Ruby Cipher enclosure prior to turning 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 systems.
