Addonics Unveils CipherUSB Family of Hardware Encryption Solutions

SAN JOSE, CA (May 28, 2013) — Addonics Technologies (www.addonics.com) today announced a family of USB hardware encryption solutions that protect sensitive data stored on hard drives, removable drives, flash media, optical media or in the cloud with bullet proof security. The CipherUSB products use a FIPS certified AES 256-bit hardware crypto engine. Unlike software encryption products whose performance relies on the system processor power, the CipherUSB products ensure maximum performance in a wide range of hardware. Because these solutions do not store passwords on the computer or in the system’s volatile memory, there is much better security than with software encryption. The CipherUSB family consists of FLE (file level encryption) and FDE (full disk encryption) versions. Both offer a choice of ECB or CBC mode encryption, or a choice of standard authentication with no password entry or two-factor authentication, which requires a combination of password and the CipherUSB dongle. The CipherUSB FLE solution encrypts any file stored on any drive, media, network or cloud storage whereas the FDE solution encrypts the entire USB storage attached to the CipherUSB dongle. Among the many CipherUSB features is the option to write protect the boot sector or the entire disk on the USB storage attached to the CipherUSB. This solution is perfect for protecting any USB storage against viruses or malware attacks. It is also ideal for forensics applications. The CipherUSB FLE...
