The silver 1TB Hawker HX USB Encrypted External SSD from Rocstor is designed and engineered to satisfy the requirements of demanding security-concerned professionals by coming with hardware encryption for up to 1TB of data. It is outfitted with an SSD that offers reliability and faster performance than a hard drive. With fast reads and writes, this drive transfers data quickly to deliver instant access to your files.
The Hawker HX has an encryption chipset that provides real-time encrypting and decrypting of sensitive data. This chipset uses an Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) 256-bit key algorithm and offers CBC and ECB modes. To access the data, the included digital key token needs to be inserted in the Hawker HX. Furthermore, the encryption module has been certified by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and FIPS Level 2.
Aside from data security, the Hawker HX is built with USB and eSATA connections that enable support from a variety of Windows and Mac systems. Once connected, it draws power from a bus-powered port without the need for carrying an external adapter. To make it rugged and durable, Rocstor has designed the Hawker HX with an aircraft-grade aluminum case. Another notable feature included is a shock-absorbing mechanism that keeps the SSD suspended within the casing to provide additional protection.
