Portable Security for your Data at the Speed of USB 3.0
Secure your data faster than ever before with on-the-fly 256-Bit AES hardware encryption, software-free design and a super speed USB 3.0 connection. The enhanced USB 3.0 speeds on the Aegis Padlock 3.0 enable you to access the drive with your own unique pin at data transfer rates of up to 5Gbps.

Utilizes Military Grade FIPS PUB 197 Validated Encryption Algorithm
Featuring 256-bit hardware encryption, the Aegis Padlock 3.0 seamlessly encrypts all data on the drive on the fly, keeping it 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 3.0 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 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 3.0 provides stress free deployment in corporate environments. 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. If the User forgets their PIN, the drive can be unlocked using the Admin PIN.

Drive Reset Feature
The Aegis Padlock 3.0 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 3.0 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 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 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.

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 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.

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.

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.

Compact, Rugged Design – Perfect for taking your data on the road
The Aegis Padlock’s low powered design is perfect for using with notebooks and taking your data on the road. Perfectly pocketable, the Aegis Padlock’s compact, robust design features a 16-point omni-directional shock mounting system, protecting the drive from drops and knocks. The convenient integrated USB 3.0 cable eliminates the need to carry around cords with you and allows you to be connected at the flick of a fingertip.
