Look no further than the Aegis Padlock Fortress FIPS 140-2 Validated Drive, certified and tested to NIST FIPS 140-2 Level 2 requirements
Aegis Padlock Fortress - FIPS 140-2 Encrypted USB 3.0 Hard Drive with PIN Access
Sporting an easy-to-use keypad design that is impervious to dust and grit, with a software free setup and operation, the Aegis Padlock Fortress enables you to access the drive simply and easily with your own unique PIN. With no software updates or ADMIN rights to contend with, this drive is a breeze to implement in corporate environments, and with real-time 256-bit AES-XTS hardware encryption you know your data is safe 24/7. Combine this with an integrated USB 3.0 cable for super fast data access, and you now have the definitive answer to security without compromising performance.
FIPS 140-2 Level 2 Validated
Tested and Validated by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the Aegis Padlock Fortress is validated to meet the Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2 Level 2 specification. FIPS 140-2 validation is the cryptography standard required by the US federal government for protection of sensitive data. It covers 11 areas of its cryptographic security system, including physical security, cryptographic key management and design integrity.
Drives Validated to the FIPS 140-2 specification are required to be used by U.S. government branches as well as civilian companies in the US, Canada and the United Kingdom that contract to the US government.
Additionally governments and public companies worldwide in the education, healthcare, and financial services industries have adopted using FIPS 140-2 validated drives as the regulations requiring their use is continuously expanding. Enterprises that wish to use the strongest encryption available have also adopted using FIPS 140-2 drives as it’s widely known how stringent the testing is to receive this level of certification.
Easy-to-use KeyPad, Software Free Design and Ability to Work on ANY Operating System makes Corporate Deployment a Breeze
With an easy-to-use keypad design and software free setup, the Aegis Padlock Fortress Secure Drive enables you to access the drive with your own unique PIN. The embedded keypad prevents hardware and software key logging attempts to capture your password entered via the host system.
Utilizes Military Grade FIPS PUB 197 Validated Encryption Algorithm
Featuring 256-bit AES-XTS hardware encryption, the Aegis Padlock Fortress seamlessly encrypts all data on the drive in real-time, keeping your data safe even if the solid state drive is removed from its enclosure.
Software Free Design – With no admin rights to contend with
Setup takes just minutes. With no software installation required for setup or operation and the ability to run on any platform, the Aegis Padlock Fortress provides stress free deployment in corporate environments.
Independent Admin and User PINs
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, making it a useful business collaboration tool. If the User forgets their PIN, the drive can be unlocked using the Admin PIN. With its Forced Enrollment feature, the Aegis Padlock Fortress requires you to create your own unique PIN at first use, ensuring a secure PIN from the get go.
Drive Reset Feature
The Aegis Padlock Fortress 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.
The unattended Aegis Padlock Fortress can be configured to lock after a pre-determined amount of time of your choosing. Ideal for protecting 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 Fortress 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 Fortress 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 Fortress.
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 a 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.
VTC (Variable Timing Circuit) Technology
Protection against hacker attempts doesn’t stop with Brute Force. Incorporated into the Aegis Padlock Fortress 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 - Water & Dust Resistant
Designed with protection in mind, the entire Aegis Padlock Fortress family incorporates ‘wear resistant’ keypads to hide key usage and avoid tipping off a potential hacker to the commonly used keys.
Compact, Rugged Design
Perfect for taking your data on the road, the Aegis Padlock Fortress low powered design is perfect for using with notebooks and taking your data on the road. Perfectly pocketable, the Aegis Padlock Fortress compact, robust design features a convenient integrated USB cable; eliminating the need to carry around cords and allows you to be connected at the flick of a fingertip.
Super fast USB 3.0 Connection – Data transfer speeds up to 10X faster than USB 2.0
With USB 3.0 data transfer rates up to ten times faster than traditional USB 2.0 drives, the Aegis Padlock Fortress superfast performance is comparable to that of your computer’s internal drive, enabling you transfer large files in seconds or quickly backup an entire system. The Aegis Padlock Fortress is also backwards compatible with USB 2.0 and 1.1 ports.
