The Cipher Snap-In is another simple secured storage solution that combines the convenience of a removable drive system and the Addonics field proven CipherChain into a 5 1/4" drive rack. Once installed, any 3.5" SATA hard drive can be installed and removed from the Cipher rack like a VCR cassette. The hard drive inside the Cipher Rack is fully encrypted on the fly with bullet proof AES 256-bit encryption.

There is no special software to install or training required to use the Cipher Snap-In. Simply the Cipher key, load the drive into the Cipher Snap-In and lock the drive door to turn on the power. The hard drive operates just as if it is an ordinary drive with no measurable performance degradation as commonly experienced with software encryption. The hard drive inside the Cipher Snap-In can be used as a boot drive or as a secondary data drive. When used as a boot drive, system becomes unbootable without the Cipher key, thus making this a great solution for preventing any unauthorized system access.

The Cipher Snap-In comes in choice of models with a single CipherChain or Dual CipherChain. The extra CipherChain module in the Dual Cipher Snap-In model can be used to secure an additional internal hard drive, an internal RAID volume or any removable SATA drive system. Alternatively, the dual CipherChain modules can be daisy chained to add further security with the two factors authentication on the same hard drive mounted inside the Cipher Snap-In..
