MEET THE REVOLUTIONARY

CIPHERTEX
CX-LINUX ZFS OS

icon1

TOTAL CLARITY

The CX-Linux ZFS dashboard gives administrators an in-depth overview of the SecureNAS system’s current status, performance, and storage usage.

REMOTE ACCESS

Via our web based interface, users of all skill levels will appreciate the  intuitive and extremely friendly graphical user interface of CX-Linux. A simple-tree structured menu for Linux administrators.

SECURITY IS IN OUR NAME

Dubbed the ‘Fort Knox’ of data storage, there is no safer data repository in the world. CX-Linux ZFS OS combined with the Ciphertex Protect AES 256-bit encryption key delivers top-level cybersecurity at the edge – without the decryption passcode, nobody can access your system.

CONTROLLED ACCESS TO USB PORTS

Administrators have the ability to easily enable USB port blocking and stop unauthorized device access. As long as USB port access is disabled,  SecureNAS will ignore all USB devices, thereby eliminating the possibility of unauthorized access.

YOUR SECURITY IS KEY

ENCRYPTION KEY MANAGEMENT:

The Ciphertex CX-Linux Operating System provides three (3) levels of Encryption key management.

  1. Ciphertex-Protect® Encryption Key – FIPS 140-2 Level 3 certified encrypted storage. Encrypted data residing on a Ciphertex SecureNAS® cannot be accessed unless the Ciphertex-Protect® key is unlocked and physically inserted into the USB-C port on the front of the server.
  2. Key Server – CX-Linux supports centralized storage and management of the encryption key(s) on any key server supporting KMIP.
  3. Passphrase – A user or admin supplied passphrase can be up to 256 characters.

DATA AT REST MANAGEMENT

Data is protected with the Ciphertex CX-Linux implementation of the US Government’s AES-256 Advanced Encryption Standard. It simply cannot be accessed by unauthorized intrusion even if the server is stolen or its disk drives are taken.

CONTROLLED ACCESS TO USB PORT

Your CX-Linux admin can opt to disable USB port access, including Ciphertex Quick-Link® access. As long as USB access is disabled, the SecureNAS® will ignore all USB devices and eliminate any possibility of accessing (“Thumb Sucking”) the data residing on the server.

DATA TRANSFER ENCRYPTION

CX-Linux employs SSL certificates in order to enable services, thereby eliminating the possibility of the loss of important data. HTTPS and FIPS support RSA-2048 encrypted communication that protects sensitive data from being transmitted over a network. CX-Linux can generate a unique SSL certificate.

FIREWALL

The integral, preconfigured CX-Linux firewall allows total lock down of the SecureNAS® by restricting network access to only authorized SecureNAS® defined services.

Users

FLEXIBLE ACCOUNT MANAGEMENT

BRAINSTORMING

CX-Linux defines an administrator account, which cannot be deleted, ensuring login access to your SecureNAS® at all times. While the passphrase can be changed for the administrator account, it will always be part of the system.

USERS AND GROUPS

Create accounts and groups for controlling individual user access to functionality and data on the SecureNAS®.

ADS INTEGRATION

Create accounts and groups for controlling individual user access to functionality and data on the SecureNAS®.

CX-LINUX ZFS IMPLEMENTATION

The CX-Linux implementation of ZFS provides a simplified way of managing filesystems with background data redundancy management and varying levels of compression.

RAID

RAID

CX-Linux ZFS eliminates the user maintenance tasks that traditional RAID implementations require. It is self-healing and highly resistant to data loss as opposed to standard RAID systems, while providing superior performance.

data

DATA DEDUPLICATION

A highly optimized version of block based data deduplication to reduce storage space consumption while limiting the impact of drive read and write speeds.

smb

SMB/CIFS

Network sharing of filesystems with security options on a per user basis supported by both Windows Active Directory authentication and Linux.

ftp

FTP

Share filesystems over the network that can be accessed by designated FTP clients.

nfs

NFS

Quick and easy setup of NFS share filesystems.

lfts

LFTS PHOENIX

Share data in an industry standard LTO tape format for easy sharing of data.

ISCSI

ISCSI TARGET

Reserve sections within your CX-Linux created storage on your SecureNAS® for network clients to access as a local drive that can be secured with CHAP authentication, thereby allowing the sharing of centrally managed storage.

usb

PORTABLE USB

CX-Linux allows your SecureNAS® to share the data on a USB drive over your local network.

TCP/IP

Customize the IP Address and DNS settings using a unique algorithm that detects only the changed parts of files and MTU for each network interface.

DNS

Configure up to three (3) DNS addresses and a DNS search path.

BONDING

Combine network interfaces to enhance performance by aggregating their bandwidths.

NETWORKING

ROUTING

Create routes for individual network interfaces and assign their priority for optimizing routing.

HOSTS

Add custom host entries in order to resolve host names without using a DNS.

servers

Backup / Restore

Create backup schedules that can be saved to local drives, LTO tape and industry standard cloud services. These backups are available to restore your SecureNAS® in the event this becomes necessary for any reason.

CLIENT AND PEER BACKUP/RESTORE:

Centrally manage backup and restore functions of computers on the network with your SecureNAS®.

Snapshot

Create snapshots which can be used to restore your SecureNAS® to a specific, previous point in time.

Update

Remotely save system configurations so they can be restored on the same SecureNAS® or on another SecureNAS® System updates are done remotely through the server’s web interface, without physical interaction.

STATUS AND NOTIFICATIONS

STATUS LOGS

View both system logs and user logs to monitor the health and activities of your SecureNAS®.

PERFORMANCE PROFILE

CX-Linux provides the facility to monitor and fine tune performance of your SecureNAS® hardware.

SMART

Monitor data drive health for advance warning of a potential drive failure so that preventive action can be taken.

LCD

CX-Linux employs the LCD front panel of your SecureNAS® to display status information.

SENSORS

Access the sensor monitor via the SecureNAS® Dashboard to view the current status of its hardware components. Any component in an out-of-range condition will trigger a notification.

DUPLICATE

Configure CX-Linux to automatically send event notifications to email addresses that you designate.
