Apricorn A25-3BIO256-1000 overview

  • 1Description

What better way to secure your important files than with the biometrically enhanced 1TB Aegis Biometric USB 3.0 HDD w/ 256-Bit AES-XTS Hardware Encryption from Apricorn. Simply swipe your finger over the fingerprint scanner and access your files even when on the go. This external hard drive features a built-in USB 3.0 cable that not only powers the drive, it supports a maximum theoretical data transfer rate of up to 5 Gb/s. The rugged design of the Aegis Biometric HDD helps to protect against damage from drops while the 256-bit AES-XTS hardware encryption protects data stored within the drive. With an 8 MB cache memory buffer, 5400 rpm drive speed, 12 ms average seek time and enhanced shock protection this drive is sure to offer consistent, reliable performance.

Utilizes Military Grade FIPS PUB 197 Validated Encryption Algorithm
Real-time 256-bit AES-XTS encryption encrypts all data on the drive, protecting the drive even if it is removed from its casing.
Biometric Fingerprint Access
Once registered, swipe your finger on the sensor for access to your files. Up to five fingerprint profiles can be stored and can be accessed without software on the host system. The Aegis Bio's unique Embedded Enrollment keeps all fingerprint enrollment and authentication within the Aegis Bio circuitry, independent of the host system. While other biometric drives use a CD emulation module or software on the host system for fingerprint enrollment, the Aegis Bio requires no software, enabling it to be used on any USB host regardless of OS.

The fingerprint sensor uses an advanced live layer imaging technology to provide the most accurate fingerprint image possible, using a patented dual-plate active pixel design. The sensor uses three different sensing methods that penetrate outer layers of skin to read live layers under the skin (anti-spoofing protection). It meets the image quality requirements of NIST and the FBI.
No Need to Remember Your Password
Replacing passwords with fingerprint biometrics improves security since passwords can be lost or stolen, and users enjoy freedom from memorizing passwords.
Software Free Design
With no software installation required for setup or operation and the ability to run on any platform, the Aegis Bio 3.0 provides stress free deployment in corporate environments. Users are able to use the Aegis Bio on any USB host making it suitable for those that use multiple devices and platforms.
Super Fast USB 3.0 Connection
With a super speed USB 3.0 interface, you can access your files faster. The Aegis Bio 3.0 is also backwards compatible with USB 2.0 and 1.1 ports.
Cross Platform Compatible
Due to its software free design, the Aegis Bio will work on any operating system, PC, Mac, or Linux
Compact, Rugged Design
The Aegis Bio's bus powered design is suitable for using with notebooks and taking your data on the road. It's compact, robust design protects the drive from drops and knocks. The convenient integrated USB 3.0 cable eliminates the need to carry around cords with you and allows you to be connected at the flick of a fingertip.

    Apricorn A25-3BIO256-1000 reviews

    1TB Aegis Biometric USB 3.1 Gen 1 HDD w/ 256-Bit AES-XTS Hardware Encryption is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product I love this drive. I was looking for a drive so that I could get my files off the network where I teach and have access to them on any computer. I could have used a cloud drive but didn't want to rent space and not have control. This was the solution and it works great. I teach, own a small business, have rental properties and coach and now I have all my files in one place! My only concern when buying was whether or not the finger scanner was going to work, and so far (6 months in) it has worked every time. My only complaint is that it comes with a USB extension cable and it would be nice if that fit in the pouch for the drive.
