    "Amphibious is Rocstor's latest replacement device on steroids. Designed to be used in consumer, enterprise, institutional, military and US governmental applications, it is the most secure and innovative data-at-rest device on the market today, and comes in a compact size and attractive design," states Asher Ghadoushi, Director for Rocstor. "One of the most distinctive features is that the Amphibious X5 is as secure as Amphibious X7 (with standard Smartcards;) however it incorporate only password authentication on the device; it uses the NITS and FIPS 140-2 validated crypto module for real-time hardware encryption; and allowing users to swap out different brands of hard drives or SSD's."

    The Rocsecure Amphibious X5 Ruggedized external pocket mobile hard drive is one of industry's most versatile, Real-Time, Hardware Encrypted storage solutions available with FIPS (US Federal Information Processing Standard) 140-2 Level 3 Cryptographic Engine validated for Physical Security. The Amphibious X5, with USB and 2x FireWire interfaces offers security-sensitive users a wide range of NIST certified DES (Data Encryption Standard) and AES encrypted algorithms. The Amphibious 2.5" ultra-slim drive is designed with AES-256 bit real-time hardware data encryption security performance to effectively intercept, interpret, translate and relay SATA data commands to and from disk drives in "Real-Time". All our Amphibious product lines are designed with new shock-absorbent Damper Strip protection. Rocsecure drives offer the technologies you need to keep you data secure and safe.

    Additionally, the encryption contains "ECB" or "CBC", which are one of the most secure encryption modes available today. This drive is both bus‐powered and bootable." The new AMPHIBIOUS X5 with key‐Token authentication Pocket Drives contains a fast, high capacity 2.5" SATA drive mechanism; with up to 5,000Mbits/sec transfer speeds and silent operation.
