Military Grade FIPS PUB 197 Validated Encryption

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.

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.

VTC Technology

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.

Software Free Design – Setup takes just minutes

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.

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.

Data at Rest Protection

All data, PINs, and encryption keys are always encrypted while at rest.
