The Aegis 480GB Padlock USB 3.0 Solid State Drive from Apricorn is an encrypted solid state drive with PIN access and a secure storage system with an aluminum enclosure. With no moving parts, this drive is drop-and-vibration resistant, unaffected by humidity, and works in extremes of temperature. With SuperSpeed USB 3.0 interface, data can be accessed quickly. With an easy-to-use keypad design and software-free setup, the Aegis Padlock enables you to access the drive with your own unique pin.
Certified to NIST FIPS 140-2 Level 2 requirements, this drive is tested on 11 cryptographic levels. All data on the drive is protected with real-time hardware AES-XTS 256-bit encryption, and with no software required for installation or operation, as this drive does not need admin rights.
FIPS 140-2 Level 2 Validated
The SSD is FIPS 140-2 validated, that is the cryptography standard required by the US federal government for protection of sensitive data. It covers 11 areas of its cryptographic security system, including physical security, cryptographic key management, and design integrity.
Military Grade Encryption
Featuring AES-XTS 256-bit hardware encryption, the Aegis Padlock encrypts all data on the drive in real-time, keeping your data safe even if the hard drive is removed from its enclosure.
With no software installation required for setup or operation and the ability to run on any platform, the Aegis Padlock provides stress-free deployment in corporate environments. Administrator feature allows it to enroll up to four unique user ID's and one administrator, making it a suitable business collaboration tool.
All data, PINs, and encryption keys are always encrypted while at rest.
Drive Reset Feature
It also employs a useful drive reset feature, which can be implemented with a unique command. This clears all PINs and data, and creates a new randomly generated encryption key, enabling the drive to be reset and redeployed as many times as needed.
Auto Lock feature and Self Destruct PIN
With the Aegis Padlock SSD you can set the unattended drive to lock after a pre-determined amount of time. In addition, you can pre-program your own unique Self Destruct PIN which, once implemented, instantly destroys all PINs, data and creates a new encryption key.
The Aegis Padlock uses a three step approach to protect against a Brute-Force attack. The first step is to deny access to the drive until the drive can verify the user PIN. After several incorrect attempts the drive will lock itself, requiring the drive to be plugged in again to input a PIN. This feature blocks automated attempts to enter PIN numbers. Lastly, after a pre-determined number of failed PIN entries, the Padlock assumes it is being attacked and will destroy the encryption key and lock itself, rendering the data useless and requiring a total reset to redeploy the Padlock.
Wear-Resistant Key Pad
Designed with protection in mind, the Aegis Padlock's wear-resistant keypad and case is impervious to dust, grit and water, and hides key usage to avoid tipping off a potential hacker to the commonly used keys.
Integrated USB 3.0 Cable
It can transfer data up to 300 Mb/s with USB 3.0.
