The 256GB Aegis Bio 3.0 Solid State Drive from Apricorn is a biometrically secure USB 3.0 portable drive with real-time AES-XTS 256-bit hardware encryption. It is suitable for use in companies that need to take sensitive information on the road, such as government or financial institutions and transports data between desktop and notebook computers, or a secure mobile storage system. The Aegis Bio 3.0 SSD combines biometric authentication and encryption with a rugged USB 3.0 solid state drive. With a secure fingerprint access, you can unlock the drive with just the swipe of your finger. The drive's software-free design works on any operating system, including PC, Mac or Linux. And with USB 3.0 data transfer speeds of up to 160 MB/s, you can quickly access your data.
Super-Fast USB 3.0 Connection for Data Transfer Speeds of Up to 160 MB/s
With USB 3.0 data transfer rates up to ten times faster than traditional USB 2.0 solid state drives, the Aegis Bio 3.0 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 Bio 3.0 is also backwards compatible with USB 2.0 and 1.1 ports
Use of Solid State Drive
5X greater life expectancy than premium rotational drives Works in extreme temperatures Unaffected by high humidity Virtually shock and vibration resistant With no moving parts, the Aegis padlock is completely silent
Utilizes Military Grade FIPS PUB 197 Validated Encryption Algorithm
Real-time 256-bit AES-XTS encryption seamlessly encrypts all data on the drive, protecting the drive even if it is removed from its casing
Biometric Fingerprint Access
Once registered, just 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 the OS. The fingerprint sensor uses a live layer imaging technology to provide as accurate a fingerprint image as 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), meeting the image quality requirements of NIST and the FBI
Replacing passwords with fingerprint biometrics improves security since passwords can be lost or stolen, and users enjoy freedom from memorizing passwords
