Addonics Announces Unique Drive Readers to Prevent Data Tampering and Virus Infection

SAN JOSE, CA – August 6, 2014 — / — Addonics Technologies ( today announced the Sapphire family of Write-Protect readers that treat hard drive, SSD or flash media as READ only storage to protect against virus contamination or data tampering.

There are two Sapphire Write-Protect readers – a 3.5”/2.5” HDD reader and a 2.5” HDD/Flash reader.

Both are equipped with an interface bridge that disables the write function at the hardware level. This allows you to access data on the hard drive or flash media without the risk of accidentally erasing or altering content on the drive.

The interface bridge is a permanent feature and can’t be disabled. It protects users from accidental or intentional erasing or destruction of data. Software hacking can’t be used to circumvent the write protect function. Forensic investigators can quickly discover if the interface bridge was tampered with and replaced with a read/write enabled board.

“Besides giving the highest level of protection, this unique WRITE-PROTECT feature is a good tool for sharing drives or flash cards containing important data among different users,” noted Addonics President Bill Kwong.

The Sapphire Write-Protect 3.5”/2.5” HDD Drive Reader supports any 3.5″ or 2.5″ SATA I, II or III hard drive. The Sapphire Write-Protect 2.5″ HDD/Flash Reader, comes bundled with a set of 2.5” flash drive adapters, is the first in the market that supports read-only function on the latest flash cards, such as M2, mSATA and CFast card.

Both models come with built-in USB 3.0/2.0 connection and a small rugged anodized aluminum enclosure. The drive can also be hot swapped like a tape cartridge without restarting the system. The Sapphire Write-Protect Readers essentially treat any hard drive or flash media as a Read only media, similar to CD or DVD disc.

Suggested retail for the 3.5”/2.5” Drive Reader, model SHDU3WP, is $115. The 2.5” HDD/Flash Reader, model S25M2CCWPis priced at $ 179.
