Headquartered in Poway, California, Apricorn provides hardware-based 256-bit encrypted external storage products to companies and organizations that require high-level protection for their data at rest. Since we began in 1983, dozens of award-winning innovations have been developed under the Apricorn brand as well as for a number of leading computer manufacturers on an OEM basis. Apricorn’s unique approach to employing 256-bit encryption is particularly valuable for verticals whose data security practices are regulated (e.g., finance, healthcare, education, and insurance.) And for federal, state, and local governments, Apricorn devices set the standard for data security for both North America and the rest of the world. Since every Apricorn Aegis drive is encrypted and authenticated exclusively by way of its own onboard hardware, there is never any software involvement in these critical security processes and as such, they are never shared with any host computers. As we continue to create innovations designed to defend against today’s threats, as well as to anticipate tomorrow’s, rest assured that your secrets are safe with us.
What happens in Aegis, stays in Aegis. With our completely self-contained authentication and encryption processes, all critical security parameters take place within the drive itself, and are never shared with its USB host. Apricorn’s unique approach to ultimate data security is centered on absolute software and operating system independence.
Apricorn Aegis secure drives have been rigorously tested and endorsed by some of the most reputable publications in the computing and data security world including PCMag, Wired, PCWorld, Global Security News, SC Magazine, and SSD Review, to name a few. Year after year, Apricorn products continue to set the standard in data security.
In industries where the protection of client or patient data is regulated such as financial, healthcare, and education, Apricorn secure drives are the trusted choice for the ultimate in data security. With 256-Bit AES encryption and NIST FIPS 140-2 validation up to level 3, Apricorn elevates your data protection above regulatory compliance.
