Utilizes Military Grade FIPS PUB 197 Validated Encryption Algorithm
Your data is protected 24/7 with AES 256-bit hardware encryption. The Aegis Padlock Pro seamlessly encrypts all data on the drive in real-time, keeping your data safe even if the hard drive is removed from its enclosure.
Ultra-fast eSATA and USB interface - Data transfer rates of up to 90MB/sec
Ultra compatible with both eSATA and USB, the Aegis Padlock Pro can support eSATA data transfer rates of up to 90MB/sec. In cases when you can only find a USB port, the Aegis Padlock will work like a conventional USB drive, giving you ultimate flexibility.
Software Free Design – With no admin rights to contend with the Aegis Padlock Pro 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 Pro provides stress free deployment in corporate environments. Its Administrator Feature allows enrollment of up to ten unique user ID’s and one administrator, making it a useful business collaboration tool.
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 Aegis Padlock Pro adds another barrier between your data and a hacker. The encryption chip and circuitry of the Aegis Padlock Pro 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 Aegis Padlock Pro 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 Pro 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 drive.
Protection against hacker attempts doesn’t stop with Brute Force. Incorporated into the Aegis Padlock Pro’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.
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.
Compact, Rugged Design – Perfect for taking your data on the road
The Padlock Pro’s low powered design is perfect for using with notebooks and taking your data on the road. Bus Powered, the Padlock Pro requires a single connection when used with a Power eSATA / USB Combo port or USB port. When used with the included USB power cable, the Padlock Pro also works with Standard eSATA connections. Perfectly pocketable, the Padlock Pro’s compact, robust design features a 16-point omni-directional shock mounting system, protecting the drive from drops and knocks.
