iStorage diskAshur DT 256-bit 4TB External Desktop Drive
Hardware encrypted hard drive with PIN code access
Ex Tax: £344.99
The iStorage diskAshur Desktop Secure Hard Drive is the worlds first portable hardware encrypted hard drive with PIN code access, we love them!
The PIN code pad is really easy to use and your data is kept super secure, we've even run it through speed tests here at SPS HQ with great success and have used them to edit video off making them a fantastic solution when someone needs to take sensitive media away from the edit suite or production office.
Just take a look at some of the cool features.
• Secure access with personalised 6-16 digit PIN
• Rugged and portable design
• Encrypts all data on the fly, as fast as any USB 3.0 hard drive
• Utilises FIPS PUB 197 Validated Encryption Algorithm
• Guaranteed with 2 year warranty
The iStorage Desktop Secure Hard Drive utilises military grade AES 256-bit hardware encryption, which encrypts all data stored on the drive in real time. Should the drive be lost or stolen, the user can rest assured that all data held on the drive is safe and cannot be accessed by any unauthorised third party, even if the hard drive is removed from its enclosure.
Why the diskAshurDT?
Loss of confidential data can have a devastating effect on both businesses and consumers. It could lead to a hefty fine, the downfall of a business, embarrassment, job losses and adverse media focus. The iStorage Desktop Secure Hard Drive can protect you against all of this.
Key Security Features
The diskAshur DT cannot be brute force attacked
The diskAshur DT is not vulnerable to keyloggers as the PIN is entered on the unit rather than the keyboard
The diskAshur DT does not require any software and can be used on any PC, MAC or Linux machine
Encryption is performed in real-time thus there is no speed degradation
No software or drivers are required
Utilizes Military Grade FIPS PUB 197 Validated Encryption Algorithm
With no software installation required for setup or operation and the ability to run on any platform, the IStorage diskAshurDT provides stress free deployment in corporate environments. Its Administrator Feature allows enrollment of up to five unique user ID’s and one administrator, making it a useful business collaboration tool.
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 IStorage diskAshurDT is also backwards compatible with USB 2.0 and 1.1 ports.
Data at Rest Protection
All data, PINs, and encryption keys are always encrypted while at rest.
Sealed from Physical Attacks by Tough Epoxy Coating
In addition to encrypting all of the PINs, data and the encryption key itself, the IStorage diskAshurDT adds another barrier between a between your data and a hacker. The encryption chip and circuitry of the IStorage diskAshurDT 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.
Brute Force Self Destruct Feature
The IStorage diskAshurDT 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 IStorage diskAshurDT.
Auto Lock feature
The IStorage diskAshurDT auto lock feature enables you to set the unattended drive to lock after a pre-determined amount of time of your choosing.
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.
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 IStorage diskAshurDT robust design has a solid aluminum enclosure which is ideal for whisking away heat from the rotating drive inside.
