|FIPS PUB 197 Validated Encryption Algorithm
Employing AES-XTS 256-bit hardware encryption, the iStorage diskAshur2 SSD seamlessly encrypts all data on the drive in real-time, keeping your data safe even if the Solid State Drive is removed from its enclosure.
Super-fast USB 3.1
With super-fast USB 3.1 data transfer speeds of 294 MBps (Read) and 319 MBps (Write), you can now access your files faster than ever before. The iStorage diskAshur2 SSD is also backwards compatible with USB 2.0 and 1.1 ports.
Brute Force Hack Defence Mechanism
The iStorage diskAshur2 SSD is intelligently programmed to protect against all forms of Brute Force attacks. After five consecutive incorrect PIN entries, the drive will freeze, requiring the drive to be disconnected and reconnected to the USB port to get a further five PIN entry attempts. If a further five (10 in total) consecutive incorrect PIN attempts are entered again, the diskAshur2 SSD will freeze again. To get a further and final five PIN attempts (15 in total), the “shift” button must be pressed whilst inserting the USB cable into the USB port and then an iStorage preset PIN will need to be entered. On the fifteenth consecutive incorrect PIN entry, the diskAshur2 SSD assumes it is being attacked and will delete the encryption key and lock itself, rendering all data previously stored on the drive as lost forever. At this point the drive can be reset to factory default settings and redeployed.
Self Destruct Feature
You can pre-program the diskAshur2 SSD with your own unique Self Destruct PIN which, once implemented, instantly deletes the encryption key, all PINs, data and then creates a new encryption key.
Drive Reset Feature
The iStorage diskAshur2 SSD 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.
Tamper Proof Design
In addition to incorporating a secure microprocessor, encrypting the data and the encryption key, the diskAshur2 SSD adds another barrier between your data and a hacker. All the components of the diskAshur2 SSD are completely covered by a layer of super tough epoxy resin, which is virtually impossible to remove without causing permanent damage to the components. This barrier prevents a potential hacker from accessing the critical components and launching a variety of futile attacks.
Data at rest protection
All data and encryption keys are always encrypted while at rest.
Wear Resistant Epoxy Coated Keypad
Designed with protection in mind, the diskAshur2 SSD wear resistant epoxy coated keypad hides key usage to avoid tipping off a potential hacker to commonly used keys.
