Ciphertex 15TB/60TB Portable Storage AES 256 Hardware Encrypted RAID Tower Makes Debut at Interop

Get a Handle on Your Digital Content With New CX-RANGER-EX

CHATSWORTH, CA--(Marketwire - May 3, 2011) - Ciphertex Data Security, a global provider of powerful and affordable data security products and services, today introduced the CX-RANGER-EX, a portable AES 256-bit hardware-based encrypted RAID system with eSATA, FireWire 800, USB 3.0 and up to 15 Terabytes of storage capacity. When used with the Ciphertex PCIe x4 RAID controller, as many as four CX-RANGER-EX units can be attached to a single work station providing 60TB of high-performance encrypted RAID secure storage, more than enough for any in-home office to large scale corporation.

Today's larger digital media capacities, increased data mobility, and growing security concerns demand comprehensive endpoint, hardware-based encryption. The superior hardware-based AES 256-bit data encryption allows companies to shield their data and control access to their sensitive customer and corporate information maintaining compliance with SOX (Sarbanes-Oxley), PCI and HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) regulations.

The CX-RANGER-EX 5-Bay Hot-Swappable 3.5" Drive RAID is a compact, portable, secure storage solution that can easily store confidential information. This high performing system cannot only handle data efficiently but also handle the demands for audio/visual editing and production, video post production, graphic design and digital photography. With the Ciphertex CX-RANGER-EX, if you need more storage capacity than 15TB, multiple CX-RANGER-EX systems can be daisy-chained together in a single storage configuration.

The CX-RANGER-EX has a multiple choice of interfaces. "With the eSATA connection option, I was able to cut my transfer time by more than half. In addition, I now keep my files on the encrypted CX-RANGER-EX, which allows me to safely secure all my data," said Bobby Carter, owner of Diversion TV.

"Ciphertex CX-RANGER-EX is the result of multi-disciplinary teams working together to assist companies in securing and using their digital content. As data storage needs grow within all industries, customers have been looking for greater speed and storage capacities to be able to store, move and secure all their sensitive data," said Jerry Kaner, president and CEO, Ciphertex. "The CX-RANGER-EX 15 Terabyte unit fills this requirement at an economical price for a portable and highly secure system."

Ciphertex will debut and demonstrate the new CX-RANGER-EX system at Interop Conference, booth 769, on May 10-12, 2011 Las Vegas.
