The Apricorn 500GB Aegis Padlock Pro 256-Bit Encrypted Hard Drive is a dual interface eSATA/USB external hard drive with real-time 256-bit AES hardware encryption that secures up to 500GB of data. It features a wear resistant keypad so you can access the drive with your own unique PIN. After a predetermined number of failed PIN entries, the Aegis Padlock Pro will destroy the encryption key and lock itself, rendering your sensitive data useless and requiring a total reset to redeploy the drive. Moreover, the data is protected 24/7 even if the drive is removed from the enclosure.
The Aegis Padlock Pro is a suitable drive for those that require durability, security, and speed. Its bus powered design requires a single connection when used with a powered eSATA/USB combo port or USB port. Utilizing the performance of a hard drive, it offers a data transfer rate of 90 MB/s while connected via eSATA. For USB connections only, it transfers data at a rate up to 31 MB/s. The Padlock Pro also provides a software-free design that makes it compatible with any system running Windows, Mac, or Linux.
Utilizes Military Grade FIPS PUB 197 Validated Encryption Algorithm
Your data is protected 24/7 with AES 256-bit hardware encryption. The Aegis Padlock Pro seamlessly encrypts all data on the drive in real-time, keeping your data safe even if the hard drive is removed from its enclosure.
eSATA and USB Interface
Ultra compatible with both eSATA and USB, the Aegis Padlock Pro can support eSATA data transfer rates of up to 90 MB/s. In cases when you can only find a USB port, the Aegis Padlock will work like a conventional USB drive, giving you optimal flexibility. The Padlock Pro's low powered design is suitable for use with notebooks and using it on-the-go. Bus powered, the Padlock Pro requires a single connection when used with a Power eSATA/USB Combo port or USB port. When used with the included USB power cable, the Padlock Pro also works with standard eSATA connections.
Compact, Rugged Design
The portable Padlock Pro's compact, robust design features a 16-point omni-directional shock mounting system, protecting the drive from drops and knocks.
With a user-friendly keypad design and software free setup, the drive enables you to access with your own unique PIN. It features seamless real-time encryption, keeping your data secure. With no software installation required for setup or operation and the ability to run on any PC, Mac, or Linux platform, the Aegis Padlock Pro provides stress free deployment in a multitude of environments. Its Administrator feature allows enrollment of up to ten unique user ID's and one administrator, making it a useful business collaboration tool.
Data at Rest Protection
All data, PINs, and encryption keys are always encrypted while at rest.
Sealed from Physical Attacks by Tough Epoxy Coating
In addition to encrypting all of the PINs, the drive adds another barrier between your data and a hacker. The encryption chip and circuitry of the Aegis Padlock Pro are protected by a tough 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.
Brute Force Self Destruct Feature
The Aegis Padlock Pro 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 Pro 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 drive.
Variable Time Circuit (VTC) technology works to prevent "timing attacks" aimed at accessing the drive by studying the behavior and infiltrating the Padlock Pro's electronics.
Wear Resistant Keypad
Designed with protection in mind, the entire Aegis Padlock Pro family incorporates 'wear resistant' keypads to hide key usage and avoid tipping off a potential hacker to the commonly used keys.
