IOCELL Networks claims its NetDISK external eSATA/USB 2.0/Ethernet combo hard drive is hack-proof because it’s embedded with revolutionary NDAS technology (Network Direct Attached Storage), which allows a direct connection to a network without the need for IP configuration, making it invisible to the outside world.
Each NetDISK 351UNE has a unique hardware ID and access key. This gives owners of the device the ability to choose which computers on their network have read and write access, read only access or no access at all to the NetDISK. And since NetDISK requires no TCP/IP setting, the unit is safe from external hackers.
The NetDISK provides instant network storage and is easy to install because it doesn't require an IP address to configure, it’s compatible with wireless routers, available to Mac, Linux and PC users and has a Gigabit RJ-45 interface. Just install your own hard drive.
The unit’s software provides multiple computer access and file level access permissions with proper partition types.
