ICY BOX with immobilizer: the new IB-220RFID

More Safety for your external HDDs by 128-bit encryption (AES)

(PresseBox) (Ahrensburg, ) Imagine you are working with your own external 2.5"-SATA drive in an unfamiliar environment. If you leave your place-even for a moment, you might want to secure your data against the curiosity of others. With a usual external enclosure you better take your HDD with you. That's inconvenient and that's why you get incautious easily. What can be fatal.

The ICY BOX IB-220RFID helps to protect your data against unwanted insights and data-theft. You just hold the RFID token close to the IB-220RFID and suddenly the hard drive isn't recognized by the computer anymore. It is encrypted. Even if someone steals the HDD, it cannot be read on another computer. Decryption, too, is enabled by the RFID's radio code. In a similar way the engine electronics of a car are blocked and deblocked by the immobilizer. By the way, RFID means radio frequency identification.

Good and important to know: the 128-bit encryption follows the AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) and protects your HDD, not only the identity of the RFID token. That separates the ICY BOX form less elaborate enclosures.

You carry the RFID token of the IB-220RFID at your key bundle or like loose change in your pocket or purse. The IB-220RFID comes with two tokens. That's safer.

Plug & Play and USB make the ICY BOX IB-220RFID easy and fast. Data transfer with up to 480 MBit/s. LEDs inform you about encoding status, hard-drive access and power supply. If necessary the included Y-cable provides additional power supply. In the leatherette pocket the IB-220RFID is well protected and good-looking.

Most important is that your data are optimally protected. Just like a car. And there an immobilizer is self-evident.
