"…the most important protections are for the data stored inside the (Padlock DT FIPS), and Apricorn provides several layers of security to do just that."

Brian Westover, PC MAG

"with FIPS 140-2 certification, a hardened case, plenty of capacity, and good performance, it’s hard to see where you could go wrong with the Aegis Padlock DT."

Jon Jacobi, PC World



Security for your Desktop
Simple to setup, software-free and on-the-fly AES Hardware Encryption, the Aegis Padlock DT FIPS takes the perfect desktop companion to the highest level of security. Apart from setting up a password on your desktop and a perhaps a firewall, we often don't consider the security of the files on our desktop machines. Information such as customer files, credit card information or proprietary company data should be kept secure, but should be easy to access by authorized personnel. Enter the Aegis Padlock DT FIPS, designed specifically for desktop systems, this high-capacity desktop external drive has everything you need to keep your most sensitive data secure.

Utilizes Military Grade FIPS PUB 197 Validated Encryption Algorithm
Featuring AES-XTS 256-bit hardware encryption, the Aegis Padlock DT FIPS seamlessly encrypts all data on the drive on-the-fly, keeping your data safe even if the hard drive is removed from its enclosure.

Super fast USB 3.0 Connection – Data transfer speeds up to 10X faster than USB 2.0
With a super speed USB 3.0 interface, you can now access your files faster than ever before. The Aegis Padlock DT FIPS is also backwards compatible with USB 2.0 and 1.1 ports.

Software Free Design – With no admin rights to contend with, the Aegis Padlock DT FIPS is a breeze to implement
With no software installation required for setup or operation and the ability to run on any platform, the Aegis Padlock DT provides stress free deployment in corporate environments. The Aegis Padlock DT FIPS 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. If the User forgets their PIN, the drive can be unlocked using the Admin PIN.

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.

Auto-lock Feature
The unattended Aegis Padlock DT can be configured to lock after a pre-determined amount of inactivity time of your choosing. Ideal for protecting your data when you’re away from your desk.

Lock Slot for Additional Security
Compatible with most 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.

Data at Rest Protection
All data, PINs, and encryption keys are always encrypted while at rest.

Brute Force Self Destruct Feature
The Aegis Padlock DT FIPS 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 DT 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 Aegis Padlock DT FIPS.

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 DT FIPS adds another barrier between your data and a hacker. The encryption chip and circuitry of the Aegis Padlock DT 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.

Wear Resistant Key Pad
Designed with protection in mind, the entire Aegis Padlock family incorporates ‘wear resistant’ keypads to hide key usage and avoid tipping off a potential hacker to the commonly used keys.

Variable Timing Circuit (VTC) Technology
Protection against hacker attempts doesn’t 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.

High Quality Aluminum, Heat Dissipating Enclosure
The Aegis Padlock DT robust design has a solid aluminum enclosure which is ideal for whisking away heat from the rotating drive inside.
