The Diamond Cipher Combo Hard Drive Kit features the new generation of eSATA hard drive enclosures with the 256-bit AES hard encryption and choice of ECB or CBC mode.
The Diamond Cipher Combo Hard Drive Kit 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 Combo Hard Drive supports the highest performance possible today through an externally connected hard drive enclosure.
The Diamond Combo Hard Drive kit is probably the most versatile storage solution in the market. This kit comes with all the necessary component to allow any 3.5" 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 Diamond Cipher drive kit 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 Diamond 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 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 Cipher drive enclosure using the optional 2.5" hard drive mounting bracket.
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 Diamond 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 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.
