Product Technical Specification
Easy to use USB 3.0 flash drive with on-the-fly 256-bit AES hardware encryption, onboard secure PIN access and FIPS 140-2 Level 3 validation.
With software-free operation, cross-platform compatibility, USB 3.0 speed, Aegis Configurator compatibility, and our most advanced security feature set, Apricorn’s Aegis Secure Key 3z takes advanced data security to a new level of efficiency and affordability.
FIPS 140-2 Level 3
to meet the U.S. government standards for information technology and computer security. NIST FIPS 140 is the cryptography standard program required by the US federal government for protection of sensitive data.
The Aegis Secure Key’s FIPS 140-2 validation covers 11 areas of its cryptographic security system, including physical security, cryptographic key management and design integrity. Available in four levels, the Aegis Secure Key’s FIPS 140-2 Level 3 validation encompasses both the Aegis Secure Key’s physical tamper-resistant features as well as its identity-based authentication.
Utilizes Military Grade 256-bit AES XTS Hardware Encryption
All data on the Aegis Secure Key is encrypted on the fly with the built-in 256-bit AES XTS hardware encryption.
Onboard Alphanumeric Keypad – Prevents Hardware and Software Key Logging
Using a rechargeable battery, the Aegis Secure Key enables the user to unlock the drive with a 7-16 digit PIN BEFORE connecting to the USB port on your computer, tablet or mobile device. The embedded keypad prevents hardware and software key logging attempts to capture your password entered via the host system.
Software-Free Design – With no admin rights to contend with, the Aegis Secure Key is a breeze to implement
Aegis Configurator Compatible
Create custom profiles and simultaneously mass configure multiple Secure Keys in a matter of seconds with Apricorn’s new Aegis Configurator / Powered Hub bundle.
Independent User and Admin PINs
The Aegis Secure Key can be configured with independent User and Admin PINs, making it ideal for corporate and government deployment. If the User forgets their PIN, the drive can be unlocked using the Admin PIN which can then clear the forgotten User PIN and allow for the User to set a new PIN.
User Forced Enrollment
Once a device is configured by the Admin, it can then be deployed in a state of USER FORCED ENROLLMENT in which the User must first establish his or her own User PIN before the drive can be accessed or used.
Data Recovery PINs
In the event that a User PIN is forgotten, up to 4 one-time use recovery PINs can be programmed to permit access to the drives data by creating a new state of User Forced Enrollment.
Drive Reset Feature
The Aegis Secure Key also includes a drive reset feature which clears both User and Admin PINs, destroys the data, creates a new randomly generated encryption key and allows the drive to be reused. The Aegis Secure Key is capable of generating an infinite number of randomly generated encryption keys, allowing the user to reset the drive as often as required.
Dust and Water Resistant Durable Aluminum Housing - IP57 Certification
Protecting data goes well beyond encryption. Tough enough to go anywhere, the Aegis Secure Key 3z's resilient design makes it perfect for travel and field applications. With its rugged, extruded aluminum crush-resistant casing, the Aegis Secure Key 3z is tamper evident and well-protected against physical damage.
Sealed from Physical Attacks by Tough Epoxy Coating
The internal drive components are completely protected by a super tough epoxy compound, making it 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
As the Aegis Secure Key is unlocked using its own keypad and not via a keyboard, it is not vulnerable to software/hardware based key-loggers or brute force attacks. In addition the Aegis Secure Key further protects your data with a programmable “Brute Force Hack Defense Mechanism” which deletes the encryption key and destroys all stored data if the incorrect PIN is entered up to a total of 20 consecutive times.
Unattended Auto Lock feature
The Aegis Secure Key automatically locks once you unplug the drive from your computer's USB port or power to the USB port is turned off or after a pre-programmed period of inactivity
Wear Resistant Key Pad
Designed with protection in mind, the entire Aegis Secure Drive family incorporates ‘wear resistant’ keypads to hide key usage and avoid tipping off a potential hacker to the commonly used keys.
Two Read-Only Modes
The Secure Key 3z has two read-only modes. One is set by the admin in the admin mode and can’t be modified or disabled by anyone other than the admin. The second read-only mode can be set and disabled by a user but can also be overridden by the admin as well. Ideal for situations where the contents of the Secure Key needs to be accessed by several people in a public setting, or for forensic applications where the drive's contents must be kept intact and unaltered for later examination. Lock Override Mode
Designated for specific cases in which the key needs to remain unlocked through USB port re-enumeration such as during reboot, or passing through a virtual machine.
