Apricorn Aegis 500GB HDD Fortress L3 AES XTS Encryption Portable Drive
Keep Your Data Safe While On-The-Go
Designed and built to completely meet NIST FIPS 140-2 Level 3 requirements, meaning that the entire device; the hard drive, electronics, external fasteners, even the enclosure itself, are included within this elevated FIPS validation boundary. The enclosure is milled from a solid block of aircraft-grade 6061 aluminium alloy. Also included are snap-off uni-directional security fasteners and a membrane style keypad carrying an IP66 certification against water, dust and grit penetration. The Aegis Fortress L3 is a perfect combination of software-free operation, advanced read / write speeds, and the highest level of security and durability.
Military-Grade 100% Hardware Encryption
The drive protects your data with real-time AES-XTS 256-bit encryption. Forced enrolment helps to ensure that the drive can't be used without programming a PIN, while an auto-lock feature automatically locks the drive after it's left unattended for a predetermined period of time. The drive is also designed to wipe itself after a set number of incorrect PIN entry attempts.
Two Read-Only Modes
Particularly important in forensics, read-only mode is ideal for applications that require data to be preserved in its original, unaltered state and can't be overwritten or modified. The Fortress has two read-only modes. The first is set within the administrator mode and can only be enabled or disabled with the administrator PIN. The second read-only mode can be set and disabled by anyone with a valid PIN.
The Aegis Fortress L3 is ready to use right out of the box; no software, drivers, or updates needed. The drive is compatible with Windows, macOS, Linux and most mass storage-compliant systems with a powered USB port.
