Aegis Secure Key brings security to your fingertips
Easy to use FIPS 140-2 Validated USB flash drive with on-the-fly AES hardware encryption and secure PIN access
Apricorn’s Aegis Secure Key brings security to your fingertips. This easy to use and affordable USB flash drive incorporates PIN access with military grade 256-bit AES hardware encryption.
FIPS 140-2 Level 3 Validated
Tested and validated by the Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 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 certification encompasses both the Aegis Secure Key’s physical tamper-resistant features as well as its identity-based authentication.
Utilizes Military Grade 256-bit AES CBC Hardware Encryption
All data on the Aegis Secure Key is encrypted on the fly with the built in 256-bit AES CBC (Cipher-Block Chained) 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 7-15 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
The Aegis Secure Key is ready to go right out of the box. It does not require any software or drivers to be installed and is compatible with PCs, MACs, Linux and embedded systems. The Aegis Secure Key uses drag and drop encryption, is plug and play ready and can be used with any off the shelf backup software.
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 will then clear the old User PIN and allow the User to set a new PIN.
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 and when required.
Dust and Water Resistant Durable Aluminum Housing - IP57 Certified
Protecting data often goes well beyond encryption. Tough enough to go anywhere the Aegis Secure Key resilient design makes it perfect for travel. The Secure Key's rugged, extruded aluminum, crush resistant casing is tamper evident and protects it against physical damage.
The Aegis Secure Key is also certified for Water and Dust Resistance with the IP57 certification. The Ingress Protection (IP) rating is an international standard that tests electrical products against two main environmental factors, liquids and dust. The testing is done independently by a 3rd party and involves two separate tests. In order to receive the certification, the Aegis Secure Key was subjected to a dust chamber for 8 hours and submerged in a water tank at 1 meter for 30 minutes, after which the Secure Key was tested for functionality, and inspected for water and dust in its electronics.
Sealed from Physical Attacks by Tough Epoxy Coating
The internal drive components 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.
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 “Brute Force Hack Defense Mechanism”, which deletes the encryption key and destroys all stored data if the incorrect PIN is entered a total of 10 consecutive times.
Auto Lock feature
The Aegis Secure Key automatically locked once you unplug the drive from your computer's USB port or power to the USB port is turned off.
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.
