Overview

Utilises Military Grade FIPS PUB 197 Validated Encryption Algorithm

Featuring your choice of AES-XTS 128 or 256-bit hardware encryption, the IStorage diskAshur 3.0 seamlessly encrypts all data on the drive in real-time, 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 2.0

With a super speed USB 3.0 interface, you can now access your files faster than ever before. The IStorage diskAshur 3.0 is also backwards compatible with USB 2.0 and 1.1 ports.

Software Free Design – With no admin rights to contend with the IStorage diskAshur is a breeze to implement

With no software installation required for setup or operation and the ability to run on any platform, the IStorage diskAshur 3.0 provides stress free deployment in corporate environments. The IStorage diskAshur 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.

Self Destruct Password

The diskAshur has the ability to set a password that will reset the encryption key if needed. By resetting the encryption key all data on the drive will be lost and cannot be recovered.

Drive Reset Feature

The IStorage diskAshur 3.0 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 Feature

The unattended IStorage diskAshur 3.0 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

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

Brute Force Self Destruct Feature

The IStorage diskAshur 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 DiskAshur 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 DiskAshur.

Wear Resistant Key Pad

Designed with protection in mind, 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.

VTC Technology

Protection against hacker attempts doesn’t stop with Brute Force. Incorporated into the IStorage diskAshur’s electronics is 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.

Compact, Rugged Design – Perfect for taking your data on the road

The IStorage diskAshur’s low powered design is perfect for using with notebooks and taking your data on the road. Perfectly pocketable, the IStorage 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.
