Addonics flash encryption

Addonics Technologies today unveiled the Cipher UDD, a hardware-based encryption reader-writer for securing data on flash media. The device offers USB 2.0 or eSATA connectivity, providing data security for ATA flash and PCMCIA hard drives as well as a variety of other flash media. The Cipher UDD encrypts and decrypts data on-the-fly via a hardware key, requiring no special software to install or password to remember. Once encrypted, flash media appears blank when accessed by other flash readers/writers. Adapters are available to support other forms of flash media, with base models offering 64-bit encryption for $80. The 9-in-1 Cipher UDD with 128-bit encryption is priced at $180.

The device is usable on nearly any system that supports USB or eSATA connectivity, offering full disk encryption with no measurable impact to system performance, according to Addonics. The Cipher UDD also includes a standard Type II PCMCIA slot, allowing users to treat ATA flash cards as removable media.
