ROCSAFE MX

Secure Encrypted Pocket Size Hard Drive
AES-256 CBC Real-Time Hardware Encryption, with Two-Factor Authentication

Features Rocsafe MX is the world's most technologically advanced two-factor authentication, real-time, hardware encrypted external drive in the market today.

Designed and engineered to satisfy the requirements of demanding security concerned professionals, Rocsafe MX can also support a fast Solid State Drive "SSD" drive. Rocsafe MX is designed to be both bootable and bus-powered, and it is compatible with MS Windows and Macintosh environments without any software installations.

One of the most secure and cutting-edge hardware-based encryption chipsets is integrated into the internal circuitry of the Rocsafe. The cryptographic encryption module contains features such as Advanced Encryption Standard Algorithm AES-256 bit key strength, and real-time encryption so that there is virtually zero time in encrypting and decrypting the data. While the CBC mode, the encryption chipset bears certifications from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), and US Federal Information Processing Standard FIPS Level 2 for a Cryptographic Module. The Rocsafe is authenticated by secure (ISO7816, compliance) smartcard and password (pin number), which is inserted for authentication, and removed soon after the device is authenticated, and then ready for secure data transfer.

Rocstor line of encrypted drives offer the technologies you need to keep you data secure and safe.
A unique feature of Rocsafe MX Mobile is that it has an embedded keypad allowing you to key in your PIN directly onto the unit. This ensures protection from key-loggers that may be recording your keystrokes on your computer. Together with full disk encryption and smart card based authentication, these features give you the ultimate level of protection with an unrivaled ease of use.
FIPS Inside Rocsecure Rocsafe MX is a hardware-based encryption device that secures data in a SATA hard disk or SSD drive against hackers and information thieves. Uniquely designed as a bump—in—the—wire device on the SATA cable, the Rocsafe MX requires no mounting and simply plugs in-between the SATA connector on the motherboard and the hard disk drive. It operates transparently and encrypts all data written onto the hard disk without any loss in disk performance. Rocsafe MX does not require any additional software drivers or applications to be installed and is fully independent of the operating system. Once deployed, users would be assured that all the data on the Rocsafe MX is fully protected from unauthorized access in the event the hard disk is lost or stolen. The data is accessible as long as the Rocsafe MX is powered ON.

Regulatory Compliance
Rocsafe MX employs data encryption and pre-boot authentication allowing organizations to better protect and control access to their corporate and customer records, thus complying with regulations such as Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX), Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), and Gramm-Leach-Bliley (GLB); it is also FCC, CE and ISO7816 Smartcard Compliance.

Real-Time Hardware Encryption
Rocsafe MX Mobile authenticates the user every time it is plugged into your computer. To give your data the highest level of security, it uses a smartcard. You not only need to insert a smart card (something you have) but also need to key in a password PIN (something you know) before the drive becomes accessible. This use of two factors for authentication gives you the same level of security offered by bank ATM's cards.
