About Encryptor, AES256

In-line SATA encryption
Data is encrypted in real time, in hardware, completely independent of the operating system. A physical key (dongle) is used to encrypt, decrypt, and grant access. Only those with the correct key may access the contents of a drive encrypted with Encryptor.

Benefits of our key-based hardware approach to encryption:

  • Independent from the OS
  • Hardware encrypted in real time
  • No passwords to be guessed
  • 100% of the drive is encrypted (including information such as file allocation tables)
  • More secure and faster than software methods
  • AES 256 is recognized by the government. It's so strong that there are restrictions to what countries we can send this to.

Government Strength 256-bit Encryption
Our 256-bit hardware encryption is FIPS 140-2 (Federal Information Processing Standards) (certification number 1471).

This means that NIST (the National Institute of Standards and Technology) has given it a thumbs up, verifying it as strong enough for government use.

Use Encryptor as a Companion to UltraDock
UltraDock is the professional choice for quickly connecting bare drives to a host computer. Lab technicians and field agents in both IT and police agencies use UltraDock every day around the world. Encryptor adds government strength 256-bit encryption to UltraDock.

    • Connects directly to bare drives
    • AES 256-bit encryption compatible with other CRU encrypted products
    • Physical key provides security
    • Excellent companion to Ditto or UltraDock v5
