Review 4TB CipherShield Penta Interface AES 256-bit Encrypte

Review 4TB CipherShield Penta Interface AES 256-bit Encrypted External Drive for PC

Introducing the latest and greatest of our CipherShield Hardware Key Encrypted External Hard Drive, the penta interface. With 5 different connection types at your disposal, compatibility and speed of data transfer is no longer an issue. USB 3.0, check. USB 2.0, check. FireWire 400 and 800, check, check. And finally, who can forget eSATA, check that too. 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. And 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 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 of total cost of ownership. 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. Unit is bundled with two keys and registration is required for key duplication. FIPS 140-2 compliant and NIST certified AES hardware encryption algorithm with up to 256-bit encryption. Features 5 connection interface: USB 2.0, USB 3.0, 1394A, 1394B, eSATA. System Requirement: Microsoft Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista, Server 2012, 2008, 2003 (XP and 2000 Server not supported), Mac OS X 10.4 or later with Intel Processor, Linux with GPT support. Package Content: CipherShield Penta 256-bit AES External Hard Drive, 2 Cipherkeys, USB 3.0 cable, eSATA cable, 1394A cable, 1394B cable, Power adapter, and User manual.
