Apricorn A25-3PL256-S128 overview

  • 1Description

The 128GB Aegis Padlock Encrypted USB 3.0 Solid State Drive with PIN Access from Apricorn helps to provide advanced security measures within a compact form factor. Designed with a 128GB capacity that utilizes solid state technology and a USB 3.0 connection that allows data transfer rates up to 160 MB/s, this drive features military-grade FIPS PUB 197 encryption and 256-bit AES-XTS hardware encryption. Its keypad allows the drive to be accessed using a unique PIN, while the drive is further protected using drive reset and auto-lock features, as well as Brute Force Self-Destruct, Variable Timing Circuit (VTC) technology, and a wear resistant keypad. This drive is further protected from physical attacks using a tough epoxy coating, while a wear resistant keypad helps hide key usage from potential hackers.

This drive operates using USB bus power and is compatible with most operating systems, including Windows, Mac, and Linux. While it is USB 3.0 compatible, it is also compatible with USB 2.0 and 1.1. The Aegis Padlock is protected by a limited 3-year warranty and includes an integrated USB 3.0 cable, a travel pouch, and a Y-auxiliary USB 3.0 power cable. The Y-auxiliary cable helps to provide power by utilizing two USB ports when one port is not sufficient.

Why Use a Solid State Drive?
  • Up to a 5x greater life expectancy than rotational drives
  • Works in temperatures ranging from 5 to 130°F / -15 to 54°C
  • Works in high humidity levels, including 95% humidity at temperatures under 130°F / 54°C
  • Rated to: Shock 1500 G / 0.5ms, Vibration 20 G / 20-2,000 Hz
  • Virtually silent, with no moving parts
  • Easy-to-Use KeyPad, Software Free Design, and Ability to Work on Most Operating Systems
    With an easy-to-use keypad design and software free setup, the Aegis Padlock 3.0 Secure Drive enables you to access the drive with your own unique pin. Featuring AES-256 bit hardware encryption, the Aegis Padlock 3.0 provides real-time encryption, keeping your data safe even if the solid state drive is removed from its enclosure
    Independent Admin and User PINs
    With no software installation required for setup or operation and the ability to run on most platforms, the Aegis Padlock 3.0 provides easy deployment in corporate environments. 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. If the User forgets their PIN, the drive can be unlocked using the Admin PIN
    Utilizes Military Grade FIPS PUB 197 Validated Encryption Algorithm
    Featuring 256-bit hardware encryption, the Aegis Padlock 3.0 encrypts all data on the drive in real-time, keeping your data safe even if the hard drive is removed from its enclosure
    Drive Reset Feature
    The Aegis Padlock 3.0 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 3.0 can be configured to lock after a pre-determined amount of time of your choosing, helping to protect your data when you're 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 3.0 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 3.0 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 3.0
    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 are completely protected by a super 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
    Variable Time Circuit (VTC) Technology
    Protection against hacker attempts doesn't stop with Brute Force. Incorporated into the Aegis Padlock 3.0 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 Key Pad
    Designed with protection in mind, the entire Aegis Padlock 3.0 family 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 3.0 has a low powered design and its virtually indestructible construction is good for using with notebooks and taking your data on the road. Compact and pocketable, the Aegis Padlock 3.0's compact and robust design features a convenient integrated USB cable, thus eliminating the need to carry around cords and allows you to be connected at the flick of a fingertip. With storage capacities up to 128GB, the Aegis Padlock 3.0 is well-suited for storing photos, music, and video files, in addition to working on documents
