Jan. 3 th 2012,Enova Launches Its 9 th Generation X-Wall DX processor, the1 st True Real-Time Hardware Encryption Processor for USB Mass Storage Class Devices

Enova X-wall DX Provides Real Time Encryption for USB MSC devices
including Hard Drives, SSD”s, Flash Media and SD.

SAN JOSE, Calif. , July 11, 2011 — Enova Technology Corp., the real-time full disk encryption technology innovator, today announced its 9 th generation X-Wall DX processor, the 1 st true real-time hardware encryption processor for USB mass storage class devices.

The patent protected X-Wall DX is the 9th generation of the X-Wall real-time hardware full disk encryption processor capable of encrypting all USB Mass storage class (MSC) devices at USB2.0 wire speed with NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) and CSE (Communication Security Establishment) certified hardware AES ECB and CBC mode of operation up to 256-bit strength. Entire data-at-rest including MBR (Master Boot Record) and Boot Sectors are hardware AES encrypted to attain the highest possible security level. The X-Wall DX is specifically engineered to secure all USB MSC storage devices including hard drive, SSD and Flash media so that corporate assets and confidentiality are preserved.

“Our mission is to provide a convenient and ease of use method to accomplish the highest level of security for data-at-rest, while not hindering the transfer of large amounts of data during the encryption/decryption process,” said Robert Wann, CEO of Enova Technology Corp. “The family of X-Wall processors, accomplishes this mission, and we are pleased to be able to offer this technology to customers from all ends of the spectrum. With the recent publication of U.S. Patents on this technology, and the further development of the X-Wall family of processors to include the DX, Enova has been elevated to a primary force in the IT security industry.”

Commercial grade X-Wall DX chip is available starting August, 2011.

Key Features and Benefits:

FIPS 140-2 certification numbers 1471 and 1472 for the X-Wall MX-256 and X-Wall MX-256C crypto modules respectively.
NIST & CSE hardware AES ECB and CBC implementation certificates #60 and #250 respectively.
The X-Wall DX equips complete USB2.0 MSC host and device protocol stacks thus can be embedded onto a motherboard USB host controller, a device USB controller, or as an independent adaptor.
Transparently encrypts all USB storage devices including disk drive, SSD, Flash, and SD and does not take up one specific USB port.
Compliance to USB 2.0/1.1 MSC bulk-only transport for cryptographic processing.
Capable of splitting the entire storage into Public Disk Partition and Cipher Disk Partition, of which Cipher Disk
Partition is invisible and inaccessible without authentication.
Leaves no trace over using on the other computer.
7mm x 7mm (for QFP) lead frame-counts.
