Durable, Unified Network Storage up to 60TB All-SSD
Supporting four hot-swappable 2.5” SSDs and two internal 2.5” SSDs for OS hosting, the Ciphertex SecureNAS CX-40KSD is a high-performance, reliable all-SSD enterprise NAS powered by an Intel® Xeon® D processor. Built-in Intel® AES-NI provides integrated support for a wide range of cryptographic applications, such as bulk encryption/decryption, authentication, random number generation, and authenticated encryption, providing strong security while also reducing latency. Designed to optimize enterprise IT infrastructure, SecureNAS CX-40KSD comes with two PCIe slots that can support additional 10GbE to 40GbE interfaces, PCIe SSDs, as well as graphic cards. Incorporating security and scalability, CX-40KSD presents an ideal choice for a complete business-ready storage solution with cross-platform file sharing, comprehensive backup and disaster recovery, iSCSI, virtualization, and many other business applications. SecureNAS’s rugged enclosure ensures military-grade durability. For additional security, this system also includes a FIPS 140-2 (Level 3) certified Encryption Key that can be used for locking and unlocking encrypted volumes.
Ciphertex SecureNAS® is made in the USA and certified by a US military approved Environmental Testing Lab.
PXE Boot Server capability is built into the SecureNAS firmware but is not currently accessible by the end-user. We can allow that functionality to be accessed through the SecureNAS based on customer requirements.
32-128 DDR4 ECC memory detects and corrects single-bit memory errors, demonstrating high reliability for crucial applications.
Incredibly solid and rugged design delivers complete physical security during transport.
Two PCIe slots allow for 5GbE/10GbE/25GbE/40GbE adapters, M.2 SSDs, or graphics cards to increase application performance.
Scalable storage supporting virtual machines, containerized apps, centralized storage, backup, sharing, and disaster recovery.
SecureNAS empowers your business. Sleep well knowing your data is totally safe and secure.
