The silver 6TB 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 6TB 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 FireWire 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.
Advanced Encryption Standard Algorithm AES-256 bit key strength real-time encryption (virtually zero time in encrypting and decrypting the data)
Hardware encryption (not software embedded in a chip)
The cryptographic engine is NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) of USA and CSE (Communications Security Establishment) of Canada certified hardware AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) algorithm
FIPS (US Federal Information Processing Standard) 140-2 Cryptographic Engine validated (FIPS Inside)
Authentication: Secure key token
No software or GUI involved or required installation (for encryption or authentication)
Secure Shock-Absorbent Mechanism
The full-length bridgeboard provides additional protection by supporting the entire length of the hard drive. A strong aluminum rim holds the hard drive chassis firmly in place, eliminating stress on the bridgeboard and preventing damage due to impact or violent movement.
Thermal Protection and Load-Bearing Case
The precision density of the rugged aluminum aircraft-grade border provides excellent heat dissipation and is strong enough to bear external weight.
Shock Absorbent Protection
The shock-absorbent dampers strip between the bridgeboard and chassis offers additional resistance against accidental drops and bumps. The disposition of the hard drive and housing profile form an anti-shock chamber to cushion the blow of potential impacts.
Pocket-size portable external storage drive Ruggedized aluminum casing Bus powered Carrying case included Incorporates SATA hard drive USB and eSATA connections Speeds up to 5,000 Megabytes per second Enhanced with new shock-absorbents mechanism (patent in progress) Compatible with both Windows and Macintosh environments Bus powered (no adapter required) Includes all necessary cables
