— Combines RAID, NAS, DAS and Encryption in One Enclosure SAN JOSE, CA (June 27, 2013) — Addonics Technologies (www.addonics.com) today announced the Secure NAS series of storage appliances, which combine the benefits of RAID, Network Attached Storage (NAS), Direct Attached Storage (DAS) and hardware AES 256-bit encryption all in one enclosure. It is an ideal solution for storing large volumes of sensitive data, for securely transporting large volumes of data between different locations, or for any application that requires protection against data theft. The Secure NAS can be directly attached to any system via high speed eSATA connection, which allows the quick transfer of large data volumes. The same data in the Secure NAS can be shared over a 1 Gigabit network. The entire RAID volume, including the boot sector and partition table, is encrypted. Data written onto or retrieved from the RAID is encrypted and decrypted on the fly by a high performance FIPS certified AES 256-bit crypto engine. Encryption is activated via the simple insertion of a Cipher key when powering up the Secure NAS. There is no password to remember or the installation of any software. The Secure NAS R5 model, the first in the Secure NAS family, accommodates up to five 3.5″ SATA hard drives.
