Ciphertex Data Security, a provider of secure, portable data storage solutions, recently announced its all-NVMe SecureNAS CX-140KNVMe model, which holds a whopping 420TB, and its new CX-Linux ZFS all-in-one storage management platform, at the National Association of Broadcaster Annual Conference. These products provide a new level of safety, security, and portability to the TV and movie industry, which is increasingly under attack by inside-job pirating and hackers desiring to capture and sell this valuable art or to hold it for ransom.
Piracy in the movie and TV industry is always an inside job. And shooting movies creates a ton of data that needs to be transportable, reliable (to survive being on a remote movie set), capable of super-fast upload and downloads – because we are talking terabytes of data – and most importantly, secure. According to CNET, piracy costs the movie and TV industry between $29 – $79 billion annually and up to 230,000 jobs. For this reason, Ciphertex SecureNAS is used by many movie and TV directors and studios to protect their valuable art. These two new products represent the next generation of data security and mobility.
“TV and movies are big business, which makes them a perfect target for piracy and cyber criminals,” said Jerry Kaner, CEO, Ciphertex Data Security. “But our new SecureNAS CX-140KNVMe is more than just the industry’s most rugged and reliable NAS. This incredibly powerful platform is engineered to accelerate workflow and collaboration in all phases of pre and post production, which will be a great competitive advantage to companies in the entertainment industry.”
Designed and manufactured in the USA, Ciphertex SecureNAS CX-140KNVMe is the fastest, highest capacity and most secure portable storage solution designed for efficient backup, restoration or hybrid cloud use available. Supporting fourteen hot swap NVMe SSDs and two internal mirrored SSDs for OS hosting, the all-NVMe SSD architecture reduces latency, improves bandwidth, and substantially increases read and write speeds. To optimise IT infrastructure, SecureNAS CX-140KNVMe’s two PCIe Gen4 x 16 link expansion slots support additional NICs up to 200GbE, as well as enterprise-grade GPUs. Powered by a 24-core AMD EPYC Series (ROME) processor, this high performing enterprise NAS is engineered to accelerate workflow, collaboration, block and file storage.
For added cybersecurity, Ciphertex SecureNAS implements Ciphertex Protect, a proprietary hardware encryption key authentication to protect critical systems and sensitive information from digital attacks. CX-Linux ZFS provides triple redundancy backup and simplifies the data management process for greater efficiency and allows administrators to manage SecureNAS appliances in local, virtual, and remote environments. Ciphertex data security products meet or exceed strict military standards and specifications and are certified by a Department of Defense approved environmental testing laboratory for performance, durability and reliability.”
