Cipher UDD (Ultra DigiDrive)

The Addonics Cipher UDD is one of the most advanced Flash memory readers/writers that provide data security in ATA Flash and PCMCIA hard drives and a variety of popular Flash media. Designed with the Addonics bullet proof hardware encryption technologies, the Cipher UDD encrypts/decrypts data on the fly via a hardware key. There is no special software to install or password to remember. Once encrypted, Flash media appears as a blank media when it is accessed by other Flash reader/writers, cameras, or any Flash equipment, thus preventing unauthorized access to any confidential or sensitive data.

Built on the same platform as the Pocket UDD, the Cipher UDD offers the same interface flexibility via either USB 2.0 or eSATA port by attaching the appropriate Addonics USIB interface cables. Since the encryption and decryption do not require any special software, the Cipher UDD can be used in practically any system that has an eSATA port or USB port, providing excellent portability and convenience while ensuring data security to your Flash media.

* Flash media with multi-mode DMA such as the SanDisk Ultra, Ultra II are not supported at this time. PCMCIA adapters from other manufacturers may not work in the Cipher UDD.

Encryption features

  • Hardware based 64-bit DES, 128-bit or 192-bit TDES full disk encryption
  • High performance - Data is encrypted and decrypted on the fly by a certified cryptographic engine inside an ASIC without taking any CPU resources
  • Encryption / Decryption via a hardware key , just like using a regular key to open a door.
    To enable the encryption and access the drive, simply the Cipher key into the keyhole of the Jupiter Cipher enclosure prior to turn on the power.
  • Simple to deploy with no training required, no software to install and no password to remember
  • Platform independency - There is no software or driver to install to use Addonics encryption products. As a result, it can be deployed in any systems running any OS. This is important in organization with multi platform computing and legacy systems.
  • FIPS and NIST certified.

Reader/Writer features

  • USB 2.0, USB 1.1, or eSATA compliant

  • Serial ATA version works under DOS, Windows 98SE, Me, 2000, XP, 2003 server, Mac OS X and above, Linux Kernel 2.4 and above, Solaris 9 and above

* Access of XD Cardandtrade requires optional CF adapter from Fuji or Olympus.

(1) Serial ATA hot swap feature works only with controllers basing on Silicon Image chip set from our inhouse testing. Other controllers that are not Silicon Image based may not support hot swap. You may consider adding one of the Addonics Serial ATA host controllers to your systems to ensure the hot swap capability. New controllers from Intel and other suppliers may finally support this feature. Please verify with your controller manufacturer if you need to have hot swap in your application. Hot swap is supported in Windows 2000 and XP only. On other OS, drive can be removed without crashing system. But replacing with a different drive can result in crashing the OS.
