Designed for security-intensive applications and demanding mobile professionals,
IMPACT 2.5" enclosures employ a cohesive multi-layer hardware protection designs
to prevent potential damage to the hard drive and accidental data loss. IMPACT
hits the price/performance target with the following great features:
The small dimensions of a 2.5" palm-size IMPACT mobile enclosure makes traveling
with your data effortless. Powered through the USB port (when used with USB2.0
compatible systems), IMPACT 2.5" HDD enclosures reduces the amount of clutter by
eliminating unecessary wires and adapters for mobile professionals.
IMPACT understands that data is priceless and hard drive protection is the key
to reliability. The self-limiting shoulder screws hold the hard drive stably
with a full-length bridgeboard that prevents damage to the hard drive from
over-tightening. The durable aluminum housing offers protection by dissipating
heat and providing a protective capsule around the hard drive.
The anti-shock damper lining between the bridgeboard and the chassis offer
additional protection from HDD drops, bumps and other accidents. The hard drive
and housing profile form an anti-shock chamber to cushion the blow, protecting
against potential impact damage. Enhanced protection ensures reliable,
consistent operation and unhindered access to valuable data.
IMPACT enclosures offer unsurpassed ease by eliminating assembly and hard drive
installation headaches with self-aligning guide rails, a high profile IDE
connection, and the ability to accommodate virtually any off the shelf 2.5" hard
drive. Stackable and standable, IMPACT enclosures work great lying flat or
standing vertically. The included base minimizes the desktop footprint. The
unique contour of the IMPACT enclosure housing allows multiple enclosures to be
safely stacked one on top of the other for storage hungry users.
Compromised or stolen data can financially destroy an enterprise and be
potentially ruinous to individuals; this is why the IMPACT storage enclosure
solutions are offered in encrypted versions. Perfect for banking, legal,
forensic/criminal justice, medical, defense industries, as well as corporate and
privacy-minded individuals, IMPACT encrypted enclosures offer physical
hardware-based security coupled with some of the strongest encryption currently
IMPACT encrypted enclosures utilize the Enova X-WALL® security ASIC, which is a
physical chip that intercepts, interprets, translates, and relays IDE commands
and data securing the entire hard drive including boot sector, temp files, swap
files and the operating system, using the NIST (National Institute of Standards
and Technology) certified DES (Data Encryption Standard) 40-bit key strength.
The hard drive used in the IMPACT enclosure must be partitioned and formatted
with the Secure Token prior to first use. When complete, the entire hard drive
is associated with that unique Secure Token. Thereafter, only a Secure Token
containing the identical "secret key" can authenticate a user at power up.
At startup, the secret key is transmitted to and held in protected volatile
memory inside the X-WALL® microchip. This means the secret key cannot be
extracted from the chip, and is never stored anywhere else on the machine.
Without the secret key stored in the Secure Token, a protected disk drive cannot
be booted or subsequently accessed. The IMPACT Secure Token, which has the same
form factor as a FireWire 400 connector, is provided with a discreet error-proof
module to prevent accidental insertion into a FireWire port. The IMPACT Secure
Token can only be accepted by the appropriate Secure Token port preventing
potential damage to the FireWire 400 port due to accidental insertion of the
