Listen to what our customer said:
The SecurePCI Adapter is a great product!! No degradation in computer performance and is completely transparent.
"I have been using two Secure PCI adapters for nine months now, and have not had a single issue with them. One is used in a workstation where fast disk access is essential, and I am pleased to say that I have not been able to notice any difference in performance between running with the Secure PCI adapter or running on an unencrypted drive. The second Secure PCI adapter is placed in a e-mail/web/file server which has been running non-stop for the last 9 months, except a few reboots to upgrade the kernel from time to time. I can highly recommend this product."
The Enova® Secure PCI Adapter combines the power of strong encryption with unprecedent throughput to protect sensitive data and credentials stored on PCs and servers. Once installed into an available PCI slot, the PCI Adapter automatically and transparently encrypts all data stored on the target hard drive.
The sensitive nature of confidential information is driving the need to secure data stored on all portable computer systems. Enova®'s innovative solution ensures multi-level privacy, confidentiality and authentication, allowing organizations to protect valuable assets, credentials and intellectual property which are exposed to significant risk of theft. Legal liability and the financial consequences associated with stolen confidential information require organizations to go to extreme lengths to protect their data.
Certain inhibiting factors have limited the widespread adoption of data encryption. Software solutions fail to address multiple concerns of performance degradation, user acceptance and ease-of-use. In contrast, hardware-based encryption technology is a much more secure solution offering simple and absolute data security which completely eliminates processor cycle interrupts and memory overhead. With Enova®'s transparent hardware based solution you are assured that your data and credentials are fully protected.
Enova®'s X-Wall solution completely eliminates the traditional trade-offs between speed, convenience and security. X-Wall performs automatic and transparent hardware based "real-time" encryption at an unprecedented 1.6 Gigabit per second, requiring no user intervention- This ensures users never experience any performance degradation, with systems functioning at exactly the same speed as before X-Wall was installed.
The X-Wall Secure Key stores and protects the encryption key used by the X-Wall microchip to encrypt data. The correct X-Wall Secure Key must be inserted into the special key socket (present on X-Wall finished products) at system boot up to authenticate the user and authorize the operating system to load before granting access to data stored on the hard drive.
Because X-Wall operates at the physical hardware layer, it is compatible with all Operating Systems and requires no specific device drivers. Software upgrades, patches and bug-fixes are therefore no longer relevant.
X-Wall provides the complete security your data deserves. Utilizing only Government NIST approved DES (Data Encryption Standard) and TDES algorithms for assured security, X-Wall also allows you to choose the encryption key strength that best suits your particular requirements.
Please refer to the Figure 1. The installation of the Enova® Secure PCI Adapter is a snap. Find an available PCI slot. Connect your hard disk to the IDE connector labeled as "To Hard Disk". Connect the other IDE cable to the IDE connector labeled as "To Mother Board." Of course, you must determine the Master/Slave mode of your hard drive then adjust Jumper setting on the Secure PCI Adapter accordingly. The Enova® Secure PCI Adapter uses only power, ground and frame support from the PCI slot, thus the device driver isn't required.
You must use the supplied Secure Key token to "initialize" the hard drive, i.e., to "FDISK" then "FORMAT." Make sure you back up the important disk content prior to initializing your disk drive. As X-Wall encrypts your boot sector and partition table and the rest of drive volume, your entire drive content will be associated with the specific key token you use. Therefore, at every power up or resume from hibernation, the correct key token must be applied. Without it, the X-Walled hard drive will not be able to boot as the process of decryption won't occur accurately.
We supply you the extension cord to avoid bending your knees. As illustrated in Figure 2, you must connect the other end of the extension cord to the Enova® Secure PCI Adapter key insert. You may remove the key token after the X-Walled drive has been properly recognized by your system.
