Rocstor has unveiled a trio of new drives at CES 2013 this week , the Amphibious X5 has been designed to keep your data dafe using AES-256 encryption and both FIPS and NIST Cryptographic Engine validation.
Anyone trying to access files or data on the Amphibious X5 drive will require a passcode and the drives are available in 64GB to 512GB SSD or 250GB to 1TB HDD versions.
The drives are equipped with USB and Firewire connections, however the Hawker and Lancer are just straight forward drives without secure encryption. Asher Ghadoushi, Director for Rocstor explains:
“Amphibious is Rocstor’s latest replacement device on steroids. Designed to be used in consumer, enterprise, institutional, military and US governmental applications, it is the most secure and innovative data-at-rest device on the market today, and comes in a compact size and attractive design,”-“One of the most distinctive features is that the Amphibious X5 is as secure as Amphibious X7 (with standard Smartcards;) however it incorporate only password authentication on the device; it uses the NITS and FIPS 140-2 validated crypto module for real-time hardware encryption; and allowing users to swap out different brands of hard drives or SSD’s.”
