CRU-DataPort Announces Data Security and Data Storage at 2009 FOSE

New Solutions Include RAID, Data Encryption and Digital Forensics Tools

Washington DC — March 10, 2009 — CRU-DataPort announces five new data security and data storage products at FOSE 2009, including hardware based encryption, a portable RAID storage enclosure and write-blocked forensic tools.

Hardware-based encryption makes the new DataPort™ 10 Secure an ideal solution for protecting sensitive data on a computer's hard drive. This rugged enclosure enables the drive to be removed, or "Hot-Swapped", for data backup, transporting and archiving, while a government approved AES 128 high-speed encryption processor secures the contents of the entire drive without affecting computer performance.

The Portable DataRAID PDR610 is a high-performance iSCSI storage enclosure that makes a massive amount of data transportable, (up to 9 terabytes), while a built-in RAID controller ensures the data's integrity. A rugged carrying handle makes this mini data center portable and a dual gigabit Ethernet interface ensures high-speed access, making the PDR610 ideal for Disaster Recovery, digital media archiving and Pro A/V editing. Six drive bays feature vibration resistant removable drive carriers with ultra-quiet fans and patented drive-cooling technology.

WiebeTech™, a brand of CRU-DataPort, is unveiling three new products for the government market. The Forensic RTX is a portable storage enclosure that allows investigators to examine 3.5" IDE/PATA or SATA drives in easy-to-use write-blocked bays and copy data onto SATA drives, both in the lab or out in the field. A quad-interface (eSATA, FireWire 800/400 & USB) enables users to analyze evidence or image drives from any host system.

The new RedPort SAS is a PCI card that adds write-blocked ports to a Windows or Linux computer while forensically protecting the contents of an attached SAS/SATA device. Standard SATA cables provide up to 3Gb/s speeds. The RTX400-QR is a low cost portable storage enclosure featuring four TrayFree™ bays, a high-speed quad interface and RAID 5 for data protection. Available pre-configured for Mac or Windows in 2TB and 4TB configurations, the RTX400-QR is unique because of its small size and portability in relation to its large storage capacity and multiple interface options.
