With a software free design, secure PIN access, on-the-fly 256-bit AES encryption and Super Speed USB 3.0 Connection, the ultra-fast Aegis Padlock 3.0 Solid State is the ultimate in durability, security and speed.
The Aegis Padlock 3.0 fuses hardware encrypted data protection with a super speed solid state drive and a built-in USB 3.0 connector. with its easy-to-use keypad design and software-free setup, the Aegis Padlock 3.0 enables you to access the drive with your own unique PIN. Your data is protected 24/7 with on-the-fly 256-bit AES-XTS hardware encryption, 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 USB 3.0 data transfer rates up to ten times faster than traditional USB 2.0 drives, the Aegis Padlock 3.0 superfast performance is comparable to that of your computer’s internal solid state drive, enabling you transfer large files in seconds or quickly backup an entire system. The Aegis Padlock 3.0 SSD is also backwards compatible with USB 2.0 and 1.1 ports.
Why use a Solid State Drive?
• 5X Greater Life Expectancy than Premium Rotational Drives
• Functions in extreme temperatures from -40°F (-40°C) to 158°F (70°C)
• Works in 95% humidity at temps under 131°F (55°C)
• Shock and vibration resistant
• Rated to: Shock 1500G/0.5ms, Vibration 20G/20-2000Hz
• With no moving parts, the Aegis Padlock is completely silent
Comparison of Aegis Padlock 3.0 data transfer speeds using USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports
*Test results based on the 256GB Solid State model. To acheive these data transfer speeds, your computer's internal drive must be solid state. In the case of your computer having a hard drive, the speed will be limited by your internal hard drive speed.
Brute Force Self Destruct Feature
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 3.0 Secure Drive enables you to access the drive with your own unique pin. Featuring AES-256 bit hardware encryption, the Aegis Padlock 3.0 provides seamless on-the-fly encryption, keeping your data safe even if the solid state drive is removed from its enclosure.
Independent Admin and User PINs
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.
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 your data safe even if the hard drive is removed from its enclosure.
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.
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.
The Aegis Padlock 3.0 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 3.0 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 3.0.
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.
protection against hacker attempts doesn’t stop with Brute Force. Incorporated into the Aegis Padlock 3.0 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
Designed with protection in mind, the entire Aegis Padlock 3.0 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 3.0 low powered design and virtually indestructible construction is perfect for using with notebooks and taking your data on the road. Perfectly pocketable, the Aegis Padlock 3.0 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.
