QNAP announces NAS accelerated-encryption for selected Turbo models

Keep your secret plans for world domination safe on your NAS with QNAP's accelerated-encryption technology

NAS storage is great for storing important data in one centralized location, but this requires network connectivity, which potentially opens a hole for unwanted access. There are robust security features available to protect network connections, but if someone has physical access to the NAS the drives are easy to remove. Most users forgo encryption on NAS systems because of a reduction in overall performance, but QNAP looks to change that with their new NAS accelerated-encryption technology. QNAP's QvPC technology supports the Turbo NAS TS/SS-x53 Pro and TS-x51 products in the new QTS 4.1.1.




QNAP employs the power of their dual/quad-core Celeron processors to boost encryption/decryption tasks, leading to a 50% improvement in performance. The TS/SS-x53 Pro series is powered by a quad-core Intel Celeron 2.0GHz processor with burst speed up to 2.41GHz, 8GB/4GB/2GB energy-efficient DDR3L RAM (expandable to 8GB), and supports 2 or 4 LAN ports that allow users to flexibly deploy optimal network architecture based on different needs and requirements. The class-leading NAS delivers excellent performance that maintains smooth system operations even during intensive data access or heavy multimedia streaming and transcoding.
