Buslink Cipher Shield USB powered USB 3.0/SATA 256-bit encrypted SSD series prevents unauthorized access to your digital data with the durability/shock-resistance of solid state Drive. Cipher shield 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 Cipher Shield 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. Power adapter not required, draws power from USB cable when using either USB or SATA connection. System requirement: Microsoft Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista, server 2012, 2008, 2003 (XP and 2000 Server not supported for larger than 2TB), Mac OS X 10.4 or later with Intel processor, Linux with got support. Package content: Cipher Shield USB powered USB 3.0/SATA 256-bit AES external SSD drive, 2 cipher keys, USB 3.0 and SATA cables, and user manual.
