The 8TB Aegis Padlock DT USB 3.0 External Desktop Drive from Apricorn is an encrypted desktop hard drive with PIN access and a heat-dissipating aluminum enclosure. With a USB 3.0 Type-B interface, data can be accessed quickly. With an easy-to-use keypad design and software-free setup, the Aegis Padlock DT enables you to access the drive with your own unique pin.

The desktop drive has Brute Force Self Destruct feature and VTC technology for security. Its administrator feature allows enrollment of up to four unique user PINs and one administrator PIN, making it an optimal business collaboration tool. It also features wear-resistant keypads to avoid tipping-off a potential hacker to the commonly used keys.

General Features

Military Grade FIPS PUB 197 Validated Encryption
Featuring 256-bit hardware encryption, the desktop drive seamlessly encrypts all data on the fly, keeping your data safe even if the hard drive is removed from its enclosure.
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 it can verify the user PIN. After several incorrect attempts, the drive will lock itself, requiring that it 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 useless and requiring a total reset to redeploy the device.
Variable Timing Circuit (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.
Drive Reset Feature
The Aegis Padlock DT 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.
Software-Free Design
With no software involved for setup or operation and the ability to run on any platform, the Aegis Padlock DT provides stress-free deployment in corporate environments. Its Administrator feature allows enrollment of up to four unique user PINs and one administrator PIN, making it an optimal business collaboration tool.
Wear-Resistant Keypad
It features wear-resistant keypads 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.
