Apricorn A25-3PL256-S512F overview

  • 1Description

The Aegis Padlock Fortress 512GB USB 3.0 SSD w/ PIN Access from Apricorn is 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. With no software required for installation or operation, this drive needs no admin rights. With no moving parts, this drive is drop and vibration resistant, unaffected by high humidity and works in extreme temperatures. Impervious to key logging attacks, you access the drive with your own unique PIN via an onboard keypad. The 512GB solid state drive comes with an integrated USB 3.0 cable.

FIPS 140-2 Level 2 Validated
Tested and validated by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the Aegis Padlock Fortress is validated to meet the Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2 Level 2 specification. FIPS 140-2 validation 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

Drives validated to the FIPS 140-2 specification are required to be used by U.S. government branches as well as civilian companies in the US, Canada, and the United Kingdom that contract to the US government

Additionally governments and public companies worldwide in the education, healthcare, and financial services industries have adopted using FIPS 140-2 validated drives as the regulations requiring their use is continuously expanding. Enterprises that wish to use strong encryption available have also adopted using FIPS 140-2 drives
With an easy-to-use keypad design and software-free setup, the Aegis Padlock Fortress secure drive enables you to access the drive with your own unique PIN. The embedded keypad prevents hardware and software key logging attempts to capture your password entered via the host system
Utilizes Military Grade FIPS PUB 197 Validated Encryption Algorithm
Featuring 256-bit AES-XTS hardware encryption, the Aegis Padlock Fortress encrypts all data on the drive in real-time, keeping your data safe even if the solid state drive is removed from its enclosure
Software-Free Design - With No Admin Rights to Contend With
With no software installation required for setup or operation and the ability to run on any platform, the Aegis Padlock Fortress provides stress-free deployment in corporate environments
Independent Admin and User PINs
The Aegis Padlock can be configured with independent admin and user PINs. The administrator feature allows enrollment of up to five unique User ID's and one administrator, making it a useful business collaboration tool. If the user forgets their PIN, the drive can be unlocked using the admin PIN. With its forced enrollment feature, the Aegis Padlock Fortress requires you to create your own unique PIN at first use, ensuring a secure PIN from the get-go
Drive Reset Feature
The Aegis Padlock Fortress 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
The unattended Aegis Padlock Fortress can be configured to lock after a pre-determined amount of time of your choosing. Suitable for protecting your data when you are away from your desk
Data at Rest Protection
All data, PINs, and encryption keys are always encrypted while at rest
Brute Force Self Destruct Feature
The Aegis Padlock Fortress uses a three-pronged 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 predetermined number of failed PIN entries, the Padlock Fortress 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 Fortress
Sealed from Physical Attacks by Tough Epoxy Coating
In addition to encrypting all of the PINs, data, and the encryption key itself, the Aegis Padlock adds another barrier between your data and a hacker. The encryption chip and circuitry of the Aegis Padlock is completely protected by an epoxy compound, which is virtually impossible to remove without causing permanent damage to the electronics. This barrier prevents a potential hacker from accessing the encryption circuitry and launching a variety of potential attacks
VTC (Variable Timing Circuit) Technology
Protection against hacker attempts does not stop with Brute Force. Incorporated into the Aegis Padlock Fortress electronics is Apricorn's Variable Time Circuit (VTC) technology, working to thwart "timing attacks" aimed at accessing the drive by studying the behavior and infiltrating the Padlock's electronics
Wear Resistant Keypad - Water and Dust Resistant
Designed with protection in mind, this Aegis Padlock Fortress incorporates 'wear resistant' keypads to hide key usage and avoid tipping off a potential hacker to the commonly used keys
Compact, Rugged Design
The Aegis Padlock Fortress low powered design is suitable for using with notebooks. The Aegis Padlock Fortress has a compact, pocketable and a robust design, and features a convenient integrated USB cable. It eliminates the need to carry around cords and allows you to be connected at the flick of a fingertip
USB 3.0 Connection - Data Transfer Speeds up to 10x faster than USB 2.0
With USB 3.0 data transfer rates up to ten times faster than traditional USB 2.0 drives, the Aegis Padlock Fortress performance is comparable to that of your computer's internal drive, enabling you transfer large files in seconds or quickly backup an entire system. The Aegis Padlock Fortress is also backwards compatible with USB 2.0 and 1.1 ports

Other Features

Onboard keypad protects against hardware and software key logging attacks
Administrator Password Feature: Suitable for IT departments looking to secure their mobile users, by allowing setup of administrator access to the drive before being distributed to their mobile users
Data-at-rest protection
Virtually shock and vibration resistant
The Aegis Padlock is suitable for government, education, health care, financial institutions, and executives with sensitive data
