Apricorn ADT-3PL256F-4000 overview

  • 1Description

The highly secure 3.5" Aegis 4TB Padlock DT FIPS External Desktop Drive from Apricorn features an easy to use keypad design making it simple to secure your important data using a seven to sixteen digit pin code. Real-time 256-bit XTS AES hardware encryption ensures data remains secure even if the hard drive is removed from the enclosure. The aluminum enclosure the drive sits in features a USB 3.0 interface for SuperSpeed data transfers while the 8MB cache memory buffer and 12 ms average seek time provide consistent drive performance. This secure hard drive can even withstand operating shock of up to 300 G (2 ms) to keep data safe and secure when on the go.

FIPS 140-2 Level 2 Validated
The Aegis Padlock DT FIPS 140-2 validation CERT #1965 is the cryptography standard required by the US federal government and military for protection of all sensitive data, covering 11 areas of its cryptographic security system, including physical security, cryptographic key management, and design integrity. With 256-bit hardware encryption, the Padlock DT FIPS seamlessly encrypts all data on-the-fly, within the drive
Forced Enrolment PIN
The Aegis Padlock DT FIPS elevates your data security by placing a Forced Enrolment PIN feature at the front end of the setup process. Since there is no factory-preset admin PIN number, a unique admin password must be created and entered to begin the initial drive setup.
Administrator Feature
The drive allows for one admin PIN and up to four unique user PINS, making it a suitable conduit for secure business collaboration. With the Admin PIN, the administrator is able to enter variable settings and permissions on the drive
Brute-Force Self Destruct
The Aegis Padlock 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 disconnected and then reconnected again to retry a PIN entry. This feature blocks automated attempts to enter PIN numbers. Lastly, after a predetermined number of failed PIN entries, the Padlock assumes it is being attacked and will destroy the encryption key and will then lock itself, rendering the data is useless and requiring a total reset to redeploy the device
VTC Technology
Protection against hacker attempts does not stop with Brute-Force. Incorporated into the Aegis Padlock's 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
Software-Free Design
With no software installation required for setup or operation and the ability to run on any platform, the Aegis Padlock DT FIPS provides stress-free deployment in corporate environments. Its administrator feature allows enrolment of up to four unique user PINs and one administrator PIN, making it an optimal business collaboration tool
Wear-Resistant Keypad
The drive features a wear-resistant keypad to avoid tipping-off a potential hacker to the commonly used keys
Data-at-Rest Protection
All data, PINs, and encryption keys are always encrypted while at rest
Auto-Lock Feature
Set the unattended drive to lock after a pre-determined period of inactivity
Lock-Slot for Additional Security
Compatible with standard security locks, the Aegis Padlock DT's lock slot enables the drive to be secured to your desk or other permanent fixture for an added layer of physical security
USB 3.0 Interface
SuperSpeed USB 3.0 connection (up to 10x faster data transfer rates than USB 2.0)
Aluminum Enclosure
Sturdy, heat-dissipating aluminum enclosure
Secure Storage
Suitable for government, health care, insurance companies, financial institutions, HR departments and executives with sensitive data
