Complement the security features of the DL3 FE with the additional boost of speed and durability that is provided by an SSD with the 960GB DL3 FE Encrypted External USB 3.0 Solid State Drive (FIPS Edition) from DataLocker. The DL3 FE SSD is designed for users with uncommon work environments and is able to withstand temperatures from 32 to 158°F as well as intense humidity. SSDs also help to better protect information from damage caused by bumps, drops, and dust. SSDs also boot more quickly than traditional hard drives, have faster data transfer speeds, and receive less wear and tear, making the DL3 FE SSD an important item for mobile users with a fast-paced travel schedule.

With a capacity of 960GB, this SSD uses a 2-pass, cascading encryption with two independent crypto engines that each use random and unique 256-bit keys to encrypt data. It first uses a 256-bit AES XTS mode algorithm and then a sequential 256-bit AES CBC mode algorithm that is FIPS 140-2 validated. Each bit of stored data is encrypted twice with two independent keys which never leave the DL3 FE SSD.

The DataLocker DL3 FE SSD features USB 3.0 connectivity, which also supports USB 2.0 connections. The drive is powered through its USB connection and requires a minimum of 5V and 1A of current. It is compatible with Windows, Mac, and Linux operating systems and comes pre-formatted for Windows NTFS, while also being compatible with NFS, EXT, and FAT. Included with the DL3 FE SSD is a USB cable.
