Product Description

Now with a USB 3.2 Gen 2 interface capable of transferring files at the speed of up to 10 Gbps, it takes advantage of the faster speed of the newer generation of drives. You can now transfer files at twice the speed of the previous generation of USB 3.0 (USB 3.2 Gen 1). Faster transfer speed saves you time and money and makes it painless to transfer large files. USB-C connector allows connection to the new USB standard available in modern PCs and Macs.

eSATA interface is provided as protection against USB Threats or where USB is disabled as a security policy. According to the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), security risks are associated with USB drives. To read more about the threat, download the Honeywell White Paper.

Disk-On-The-Go drive delivers speed, size, and portability – all in a compact 2.5″ form factor metal alloy enclosure. Not only lightweight and portable, but with less plastic used, more recyclable and eco-friendly too. Plug-and-play installation means you can use the drive within minutes after taking it out of the box. It is also backward compatible with USB 3.2 Gen 1 and USB 2.0, so you don’t need to worry about not being able to use it with the previous generation’s USB system. The drive is perfect for anybody who is looking for a lightweight, fast, and reliable storage solution.

CipherShield drive safeguards and protects classified information when they are too important to be left in the hands of one individual. To gain access to the drive, authentication will be based on one unique Cipherkey. It requires one key to be plugged in all the time while working with the drive. It is like getting a safe deposit box that takes one key to open. It is suitable for group settings where more than one individual is working on highly confidential projects. i.e. blueprints for the company’s next new products, top secret programs, highly confidential legal cases, sensitive customer records, and financial information.

CipherShield design features a chip embedded in the access key which matches the AES encryption module on the controller board. The drive will automatically lock down its content once the key is unplugged, or power is shut off. Without the access key, data will not be seen or accessed in the event of theft or loss of the external drive. Data stored on the hard drive are safeguarded by a hardware-based National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) certified industrial strength AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) cryptographic engine. The advantage of hardware encryption over software encryption is that you need not be concerned about Trojans/viruses or software upgrades, which results in a decrease in the total cost of ownership. You do not need to remember complicated passwords or PINs. Since CipherShield encrypts data independent of the operating system; removing the drive and connecting it directly to the SATA BUS will not defeat the encryption. The unit is bundled with two keys and registration is required for key duplication.
