Security for your Desktop Simple to setup, software-free and on-the-fly AES Hardware Encryption, the Aegis Padlock DT FIPS takes the perfect desktop companion to the highest level of security. Apart from setting up a password on your desktop and a perhaps a firewall, we often don't consider the security of the files on our desktop machines. Information such as customer files, credit card information or proprietary company data should be kept secure, but should be easy to access by authorized personnel. Enter the Aegis Padlock DT FIPS, designed specifically for desktop systems, this high-capacity desktop external drive has everything you need to keep your most sensitive data secure. Utilizes Military Grade FIPS PUB 197 Validated Encryption AlgorithmFeaturing AES-XTS 256-bit hardware encryption, the Aegis Padlock DT FIPS seamlessly encrypts all data on the drive on-the-fly, 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 2.0With a super speed USB 3.0 interface, you can now access your files faster than ever before. The Aegis Padlock DT FIPS is also backwards compatible with USB 2.0 and 1.1 ports. Software Free Design - With no admin rights to contend with, the Aegis Padlock DT FIPS is a breeze to implementWith no software installation required for setup or operation and the ability to run on any platform, the Aegis Padlock DT provides stress free deployment in corporate environments. The Aegis Padlock DT FIPS 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. Drive Reset FeatureThe Aegis Padlock DT 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. Auto-lock FeatureThe unattended Aegis Padlock DT can be configured to lock after a pre-determined amount of inactivity time of your choosing. Ideal for protecting your data when you're away from your desk. Lock Slot for Additional SecurityCompatible with most standard security locks, the Aegis Padlock DT's lock slot enables the drive to be secured to your desk or other permanent fixture for an added layer of physical security. Data at Rest ProtectionAll data, PINs, and encryption keys are always encrypted while at rest. Brute Force Self Destruct FeatureThe Aegis Padlock DT FIPS 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 Aegis Padlock DT FIPS.
