diskAshur Portable Encrypted Hard Drives
diskAshur is the latest and fastest of iStorage’s secure drive line. With the same easy-to-use keypad design and software free setup, the diskAshur enables you to access the drive with your own unique pin but now includes data transfer speeds of up to 5Gbps.
The following are the key features of the diskAshur DT:
Military Grade FIPS PUB 197 Validated Encryption: Encryption is based on the user choice of 128-bit or 256-bit AES-XTS hardware encryption. iStorage diskAshur seamlessly encrypts all data on the drive in real-time, keeping data safe even if the hard drive is removed from its enclosure.
Software Free Design: No software installation is required for setup or operation and the ability to run on any platform. iStorage diskAshur provides stress-free deployment in corporate and public sector environments. Its Administrator Feature included with the product allows enrollment of up to five unique user ID’s and one administrator, making it a useful business collaboration tool.
Fast USB 3.0 Connection: Data transfer speeds are up to 10X faster than USB 2.0: With a super speed USB 3.0 interface, you can now access your files faster than ever before. The diskAshur is also backwards compatible with USB 2.0 and 1.1 ports.
Brute Force Self Destruct: The iStorage diskAshur uses a three stage approach to protect against a Brute Force attack. The first step is to deny user access to the drive until the drive can verify the user PIN. After several incorrect attempts the drive will lock itself and require the drive to be plugged in again to input a PIN. This feature will prevent and block automated attempts to enter PIN numbers and gain unauthorized access. Lastly, after a predetermined number of failed PIN entries, the diskAshur determines that it is being attacked and will then destroy the encryption key and lock itself, making the on-board data useless and requiring a total reset to redeploy the diskAshur.
Variable Timing Circuit: Beyond Brute Force, iStorage diskAshur’s electronics also includes iStorage’s Variable Time Circuit (VTC) technology, working to thwart “timing attacks” aimed at accessing the drive by studying the behavior and infiltrating the diskAshur’s electronics.
Sealed from Attacks by an Epoxy Coating: A useful drive reset feature is also included in the diskAshur, which can be implemented with a unique command. This Drive Reset Feature 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 by the owner.
Wear Resistant Key Pad: The unattended diskAshur can be configured to lock after a pre-determined amount of time of your choosing. Ideal for protecting your data when you’re away from your desk.
Data at Rest Protection: The entire iStorage diskAshur 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.
Compact, Rugged Design: diskAshur is designed to meet the requirements of a mobile workforce. Perfect for taking your data on the road, the diskAshur‘s low powered design is designed for using with notebooks and taking your data on the road. Perfectly pocketable, the diskAshur’s compact, robust design features a 16-point omni-directional shock mounting system and rubberized paint, protecting the drive from drops and knocks. The convenient integrated USB 3.0 cable eliminates the need to carry around cords with you and allows you to be connected at the flick of a fingertip.
