with AES 256-bit hardware encryption for high capacity storage (ideal for securing large volume
of sensitive information , data achieving or video recording).
The Addonics 1U Cipher RAID Rack is designed to accommodate up to four 3.5" SATA hard
drives in a 1U Rack mount chassis. The Cipher RAID Tower is designed to accommodate up to

Both units, which are operating system independent, connect to systems via a single eSATA or
USB cable to a USB 3.0 or 2.0 port. Both Cipher RAID storage solutions come integrated with
bullet proof, highly secure AES 256-bit full disk hardware encryption that is simple to use.
There is no software to install or special training required. The encryption and description are
activated by a simple insertion of a cipher key, similar to opening a door with a key. The FIPS
certified hardware crypto engine integrated inside the Cipher RAID Tower ensures maximum
performance of the hard drive. Data is encrypted and decrypted on all drives simultaneously on
the fly, totally transparent to the user.
The hard drives inside both units can be configured to form a single RAID volume or to appear
as individual drives to the system. Configuration is set via dip switches accessible from the back
of the device. Drives are added or removed from the storage chassis like cassette tape with no
special drive tray or tools. By attaching to the optional Addonics NAS 4.0 adapter, both storage
solutions instantly becomes a secured NAS storage.
