Enova Technology Launches Enigma 3.1 CloudKey – USB 3.0 Hardware Crypto Module Protecting Data Privacy & Confidentiality

SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 29, 2024 – Building on its heritage of expertise in hardware real-time encryption solutions, Enova Technology today announced the launch of the Enigma 3.1 CloudKey, a USB3.0 based hardware crypto module (HCM) with NIST/CSE FIPS 140-2 Level 2 and/or Level 3 validated single chip crypto module that includes a powerful hardware real-time AES 256-bit engine, which is used to protect data privacy and confidentiality via encrypting data in place of any host detectable storage drives including local, external, networked and cloud like Dropbox, One Drive and Google Drive.

Unlike software encryption that relies on CPU and other system resource which may expose weakness in terms of security operations, the Enigma 3.1 CloudKey itself performs role- or identity-based authentication and cryptographic operations that completely eliminates security weakness found on all software encryption products. Data corruption as usually associated with using software encryption can never occur when Enigma 3.1 CloudKey is in use for it operates on the protected command protocol layer that is shielded from errors caused by command abort or incomplete due to event such as power interruption during operations.

Usage Profile

  • Selectively encrypt sensitive data on the local or portable drives for secure backup;
  • May encrypt entire backup at the ESP (External Service Provider) or CSP (Cloud Service Provider);
  • May send encrypted data to share with other party via public network. Only the right recipient who has possessed the right CloudKey and secrets can successfully decrypt;
  • May securely transport sensitive data to an environment that has unknow security domain;

Key Features

  • FIPS 140-2 Level 2 and/or Level 3 validated single chip.
  • Supports MFA (multi-factor authentication): Enigma 3.1 CloudKey is something you have and your Unlock password is something you know.
  • Easy to Use: Simple to use GUI of Windows; requires no software and/or driver download and installation.
  • High performance hardware AES 256-bit crypto engine protects your data privacy and confidentiality.

Enova Launches Its TCG OPAL2.0 End Point Protection Solution for USB3.x

Including OPAL2.0 host management software and FIPS 140-2 Level 2 certified single chip cryptographic module

SAN JOSE, Calif. (Nov. 17, 2022) – Enova Technology Corp., a real-time full drive encryption technology innovator, today announced its TCG OPAL2.0 End Point Protection solution for USB3.0 and Type C disk drive.

The all inclusive OPAL2.0 host management software allows an easy setup of the drive which is protected by the FIPS 140-2 Level 2 certified single chip cryptographic module. The solution effectively transforms any standard SATA disk or SSD to an OPAL2.0 compliant disk drive without capacity limitation.

The solution can be configured as a secure booting device since the entire operating system can only be decrypted with successful OPAL2.0 authentication; alternatively, it can be configured as a data drive without booting capability.

The MBAM (Microsoft BitLocker Administration & Monitoring) can take advantage of the solution and provides enterprise-wise key management for fast deployment with low Total Cost of Ownership. 

“Our goal is to provide the end point protection solutions using TCG OPAL2.0 software along with the FIPS 140-2 level 2 certified single chip cryptographic module capable of transforming any standard SATA drive into an OPAL2.0 compliant disk drive without capacity limitation,” said Robert Wann, CEO of Enova Technology Corp. “The family of X-Wall processors and our security software accomplish this goal, and we are pleased to be able to offer this technology to customers from all ends of the spectrum.”

About Enova Technology
Enova Technology has dedicated its research and development to hardware real-time full drive encryption technology since year 2000, and has engineered and manufactured a variety of real-time crypto ASIC and system solutions including high speed interfaced IDE (ATA), SATA (Serial ATA), USB2.0/USB3.0, U.S. Government CAC/PIV based 2-factor authentication encrypted storage, SecureRAID 1U, SecureRAID Mini-Tower and SecureNAS T2.

Enova Technology Receives FIPS 140-2 Level 3 Validation For X-Wall® MX+ Cryptographic Modules

Cryptographic Modules Protect Sensitive Information for Government Agencies and Enterprises

SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct 25, 2017 – Enova Technology, a market leader in innovative data security solutions, today announced its X-Wall® MX+ xF and X-Wall® MX+ xN advanced single chip cryptographic modules capable of encrypting entire SATA disk drive (SSD included) in-line at SATA 6Gbps speed have gained full approval from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and Communications Security Establishment of Canada (CSE) Cryptographic Module Validation Program (CMVP) for Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2 Level 3 and Level 2 validation respectively.

News Facts:
  • FIPS 140-2 specifies the security requirements that are to be satisfied by a cryptographic module utilized within a security system protecting Sensitive Information (United States) or Protected Information (Canada) within computer and telecommunications systems (including voice systems).
  • FIPS 140-2 provides four increasing, qualitative levels of security: Level 1, Level 2, Level 3, and Level 4. These levels are intended to cover the wide range and potential applications and environments in which cryptographic modules may be employed. The security requirements cover eleven areas related to the secure design and implementation of a cryptographic module.
  • Products which use the above identified cryptographic module may be labeled as complying with the requirements of FIPS 140-2 so long as the product, throughout its life cycle, continues to use the validated version of the cryptographic module as specified in this certificate.
Supporting Quote:
  • Robert Wann, CEO, Enova Technology, said: “When the protection of sensitive information and critical communications is required, government agencies and business need to know that a product’s stated security claim is valid. The X-Wall® MX+ xF and X-Wall® MX+ xN FIPS 140-2 certified single chip crypto modules are capable of encrypting entire SATA disk drive or SSD in-line at 6Gbps (6 giga bit per second) using AES CBC 256-bit strength. The modules require no extra software driver therefore is independent from all operating systems. With FIPS 140-2 validation, Enova’s cryptographic modules meet the growing security needs of government agencies and business applications today.”
