"Top Secret level" hardware encryption on 2.5-Inch SATA drives
Author: JT Smith
Addonics Technologies built a hard drive kit with built-in eSATA and SATA connectors that allows any 2.5-inch SATA hard drive or SSD to be used as a removable drive cartridge or an external eSATA storage device with the highest level 256-bit AES hardware encryption. It is the first enclosure solution to provide native SATA encryption on the fly with no detectable performance degradation to the hard drive through a simple encryption key. Adding encryption to any storage environment requires no password to remember, and no software drivers or special training. Encrypting and decrypting is as simple as opening a door with the cipher key.
