Impact EA-3502 3.5IN IDE Encrypted USB2.0/FIREWIRE Hard Drive Enclosure W/ 2 Des 40-BIT Keys
Targeting security-demanding power users IMPACT desktop enclosures protect the hard drive and safe guard data with advanced design features including:
IMPACT enclosures provide exceptional anti-shock features to protect and preserve your valuable data. Shock absorbers prevent vibration damage and protect the HDD against drops, bumps and other accidents. The design of the housing profile and hard drive forms an anti-shock chamber to cushion the blow of potential impacts.
IMPACT enclosures employ innovative "hook mounts", which are designed to hold the hard drive in place, and to retain the hard drive even if the enclosure is flipped over. The self-limiting shoulder screws make aligning and fastening the hard drive to the base trouble-free and prevents damage to the HDD due to over-tightening.
Hard drive reliability is critical to ensuring continuous on-demand access to data. IMPACT enclosures offer unparalleled protection, stability and heat dissipation to guarantee maximum hardware uptime. In addition to running cool, the aluminum housing provides a practically indestructible protective shell around the hard drive. The thermally efficient aluminum housing maintains a safe operating temperature eliminating the need for vents, while ensuring error-free operation and extending product life.
IMPACT enclosures offer an unsurpassed usability by eliminating assembly and hard drive installation headaches with built-in self-aligning guide rails, a simple IDE connection, and the ability to accommodate virtually any off-the-shelf 3.5" hard drive. The built-in power switch allows the hard drive to be shut down independently without removing the power supply.
Stackable and standable, IMPACT enclosures further enhance usability by working great lying flat or standing vertically. The included base gives the enclosure a small footprint, freeing up valuable desktop real estate. For storage hungry users, the unique contour of the IMPACT enclosure housing allows safe stacking of multiple enclosures.
In addition to the expense of replacing hardware, lost data can result in legal liability, damage to personal or corporate credibility, unplanned administrative costs, reduced productivity, or even the loss of a business. Data security is of particular importance to banking, legal, forensic/criminal justice, medical and defense industries. To address these concerns IMPACT offers a complete line of encrypted storage enclosure solutions suitable for business and home use.
Perfect for vertical markets and privacy-minded individuals, IMPACT enclosures utilize hardware-based encryption technology to encrypt the entire contents of a disk, including boot sector, temp files, and the operating system. Hardware-based encryption eliminates OS platform dependency and media capacity required by conventional software-based encryption solutions. To completly protect all of your sensitive data, IMPACT enclosures employ highly secure standard public encryption algorithms certified by both the US and Canadian governments. Hardware-based encryption requires the use of a Secure Token for user authentication. The secret key required to encrypt and decrypt data is stored only on the key and never on the hard drive installed in the enclosure of the host system; this eliminates back door access to your secret key and prevents hackers from stealing your data. Without the secret key stored in the Secure Token, a protected disk drive cannot be booted or accessed in any way. With IMPACT enclosures encryption speed is never an issue. Regardless of the amount of data stored or accessed, the chipset encrypts the entire hard drive at 1.6 Gigabits per second or faster to deliver real-time performance for all IDE compatible hard drives; this means that encryption and decryption operations are imperceptible. A primary benefit of IMPACT enclosures requires no additional training to use. All the intelligent hardware-based encryption technology is transparent to the user. Simply plug in the cable, insert the Secure Token and power on the enclosure. The data you access is then encrypted and decrypted in rea-time. IMPACT enclosures protect your valuable data and minimize total cost of ownership (TCO).
