ORLANDO, Fla. — The data storage company Ciphertex Data Security is introducing a new networked attached storage (NAS) appliance.

Ciphertex released its SecureNAS CX-160KHD-X, which is run by its CX-Linux ZFS operating system, according to the company this month.

The device can store up to 320 TB and is intended to provide security and portability for vital health care information from cyber attacks, including ransomware.

SecureNAS CX-160KHD-X is designed for speed and high capacity and efficient backup, restoration, or hybrid cloud use. 

The NAS device implements Ciphertex Protect, a hardware encryption key authentication to help protect critical devices and sensitive information from cyber attacks. 

The device’s CX-Linux ZFS OS also provides triple redundancy backup and allows users to manage SecureNAS appliances in local, virtual, and remote environments.

The device represents the company’s “next generation” of data security and mobility.

Ciphertex data security products are certified by a U.S. Department of Defense-approved environmental testing laboratory.

“Health care data is incredibly detailed, personal, and sensitive in nature, which makes it a perfect target for cyber criminals,” said Jerry Kaner, CEO, Ciphertex Data Security. 

“The threat to data security is real, especially as more and more data is required for patient care and operations, and it must often be migrated from hospitals to data centers at other locations.”
