SAN JOSE, CA, Feb. 6, 2013 –/– Addonics Technologies ( today announced the Addonics Cipher RAID Rack and the Cipher RAID Tower, two RAID Storage solutions with AES 256-bit hardware encryption for high capacity storage. Both products are ideal for securing large volume of sensitive information, data achieving or video recording.

The Addonics 1U Cipher RAID Rack is designed to accommodate up to four 3.5″ SATA hard drives in a 1U Rack mount chassis. The Cipher RAID Tower accommodates up to five 3.5″ SATA hard drives in a 4-bay lightweight sturdy aluminum chassis for easy transportation.

Both units, which are operating system independent, connect to systems via a single eSATA or USB cable to a USB 3.0 or 2.0 port. Both Cipher RAID storage solutions come integrated with bullet proof, highly secure AES 256-bit full disk hardware encryption that is simple to use.

There is no software to install or special training required. The encryption and description are activated by a simple insertion of a cipher key, similar to opening a door with a key. The FIPS certified hardware crypto engine integrated inside the Cipher RAID Tower ensures maximum performance of the hard drive. Data is encrypted and decrypted on all drives simultaneously on the fly, totally transparent to the user.

The hard drives inside both units can be configured to form a single RAID volume or to appear as individual drives to the system. Configuration is set via dip switches accessible from the back of the device. Drives are added or removed from the storage chassis like cassette tape with no special drive tray or tools. By attaching to the optional Addonics NAS 4.0 adapter, both storage solutions instantly become a secured NAS storage.

MSRP for the 1U Cipher RAID Rack is $389 and the Cipher RAID Tower is $399.
