The simplest way to protect your data is to take it out of the PC. That lets you share PCs without sharing data, and limits the amount of time hackers have to get into your confidential files. Our DataPak mounting systems turn ordinary hard drives into convenient, sturdy, pull-out, removable drives you can take home or store in a secure location. Encryption models in our HDDM 200 series even make it possible to store the drive with encrypted data in one location and the decryption key in another.
Pull-out drives made with DataPak mounting systems consist of three elements:
- Frames permanently mounted in a drive bay in a computer.
- Modules slide into the frames and are locked in with a key. We call the module/frame combination a "kit."
- Hard drives mount inside modules and are rarely removed from them. (Hard drives sold separately.)
Our HDDM 200 series mounts a 3.5" drive in a 5.25" drive bay. It includes 64-bit and 128-bit encryption modules for IDE drives. In addition, there are non-encryption modules for IDE/ATA-133, Wide SCSI, and Serial ATA (SATA) drives.
Our HDDM 2500 series mounts up to two 2.5" IDE or SATA drives in a 3.5" drive bay. Probably its most popular use is to replace a floppy drive with two high-capacity hard drives. You gain hundreds of gigabytes of space while retaining all the advantages of a removable drive.
Our HDDM 300 series mounts a 3.5" IDE/ATA-100 or Wide SCSI drive in a 5.25" drive bay. SCSI models also include overheat and fan failure alarms, as well as an LED indicated SCSI ID.
