Secure and encrypt your data with the 1TB diskAshur M2 USB 3 256-Bit Encrypted External SSD from Istorage. Utilizing 256-bit AES-XTS encryption, this 1TB external SSD features a rugged aluminum build with an IP68 rating and a wear-resistant keypad. Bus powered, this SSD sports a USB 3.2 Gen 1 Micro-B connector and is capable of read and write speeds up to 370 MB/s. In addition to a protective sleeve and carry case, the diskAshur M.2 comes with USB Type-A and C cables that allow this drive to work with a wide range of devices including Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, and Chrome devices, as well as thin clients, zero clients, embedded systems, and virtual clients.

Easy to Use

Simply enter a 7-15 digit PIN to authenticate and use as a normal portable SSD. When the drive is disconnected, all data is encrypted using AES-XTS 256-bit hardware encryption with no software required.

Tamper-Evident Design

All data stored on the diskAshur M2 is encrypted using FIPS PUB 197 validated, AES-XTS 256-bit hardware encryption. All components incorporated within the diskAshur M2 are completely covered by a layer of tough epoxy resin, causing permanent damage to the components in the event of attempted removal. The drive is also designed to be tamper-evident, making it obvious to the User if it has been pried open and tampered with.

Rugged Build

The diskAshur M2 is built for rugged protection, surviving a drop of up to 13' onto a concrete surface. It is also crushproof, withstanding the weight of a 2.7 ton vehicle.

Ingress Protection

The drive's IP68 rating means it will survive being submerged under 4.9' of water for 30 minutes while also withstanding dust, dirt, and sand.

Slim Design

Lightweight and smaller than the size of a phone, the slim design makes the diskAshur M2 ultra-portable. With the protective sleeve, this drive weighs 3 ounces, or 2.3 ounces without.

Wear-Resistant Keypad

The onboard keypad is covered with a polymer coating that protects the keys and hides key usage, preventing commonly used keys from tipping off a potential hacker.

Independent User and Admin PINs

Independent User and Admin PINs make this drive ideal for corporate and government deployment. If the User forgets their PIN, the drive can be unlocked using the Admin PIN. The Administrator can then allow the User to set a new User PIN.

User PIN Enrollment

The Admin can set a restriction policy for the User PIN. This includes setting the minimum length of the PIN, as well as requiring the input of one or more special characters. Special characters are selected by pressing the SHIFT and digit keys.

Transfer in Seconds

The diskAshur is capable of read and write speeds up to 370 MB/s.

One-Time User Recovery PIN

Admin configurable, the one-time User recovery PIN is useful in situations where a User has forgotten their PIN, allowing the User to unlock the device and set a new User PIN.

Secure Microprocessor

Enhances security through true random number generation and built-in cryptography. The data encryption key is protected by FIPS and Common Criteria validated wrapping algorithms. Offers ultimate security against hackers, detecting and responding to tampering with features such as dedicated hardware for protection against SPA, DPA, SEMA, and DEMA attacks; advanced protection against physical attacks, including Active Shield, Enhance Protection Object, CStack checker, Slope Detector, and Parity Errors; Environmental Protection Systems protecting against voltage monitor, frequency monitor, temperature monitor and light protection; and Secure Memory Management/Access Protection.

Read only (write protect) - Dual Mode

Both the Admin and User can configure the diskAshur M2 as a read only (write protect) drive. If configured by the Admin, the drive cannot be modified or disabled by the User, allowing the Admin to pre-provision a drive with pre-loaded content as read-only for the User.

OS and Host Independent

No software is required; the drive will work on any device with a USB port, including Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, and Chrome devices, thin Clients, zero clients, embedded systems, and virtual clients including Citrix and VMware. USB Micro-B to Type-A and C cables are included.

Bootable Feature

Install an OS on the diskAshur M2 and boot directly from it.

Brute Force Hack Defense

If the User PIN is entered incorrectly 10 consecutive times, the User PIN will be deleted, and the drive can only be accessed by entering the Admin PIN or One-time User recovery PIN. The Admin can set the number of incorrect PIN entries from 1 to 9, for the User only. If the Admin PIN is entered incorrectly 10 consecutive times, all data, PINs, and the encrypted encryption key will be lost forever.

Auto Lock

Automatically locks when unplugged from the host computer or when power to the USB port is turned off. It can also be set to automatically lock after a predetermined amount of time.

Self-Destruct Feature

Pre-program the diskAshur M2 with a self-destruct PIN. Once entered, this causes the data, encrypted encryption key, and all PINs to be deleted, rendering the contents of the drive irretrievable.

Device Reset Feature

Deletes the encrypted encryption key and all PINs, rendering all data as lost forever. The drive can then be redeployed which randomly generates a new encrypted encryption key. This process can be repeated as many times as required.

Whitelisting on Networks

Configured with a unique VID/PID and internal and external serial number with a barcode, this drive easily integrates into standard end-point management software (white-listing) to meet internal corporate requirements.
