Tough on the outside, FIPS validated HDD encryption on the inside, and pocket-sized portability to safely carry your data anywhere you go. Available in a wide variety of storage capacities in both HDD and high speed SSD models. The Aegis Fortress is Software-Free, 100% hardware-based 256-bit AES XTS encrypted, onboard keypad PIN authenticated, with ultra-fast USB 3.1 (3.0) data transfer speeds. All Data is encrypted on the fly and all PINs and Data remain encrypted while the drive is at rest. Completely cross-platform compatible and OS agnostic; the Aegis Fortress thrives with Windows, Linux, Mac, Android, and Chrome. It also thrives where software-authenticated encrypted devices can’t function, such as embedded systems and equipment in possession of a powered USB port and storage file system but no keyboard. All internal componentry is protected from physical tampering with a layer of hardened epoxy, and the firmware is locked down to prevent any modifications making it impervious to malware attacks such as BadUSB.
The heart and soul of every Apricorn Secure Device, AegisWare is our patent-protected firmware combined with the industry’s most advanced feature set.
Meets the U.S. government standards for information technology and computer security. NIST FIPS 140 is the cryptography standard program required by the US federal government for protection of sensitive data.
Aegis Configurator Compatible: Windows-Based App that Quickly Sets Up Multiple Devices Simultaneously. Create custom profiles and mass configure multiple devices in a matter of seconds using the Aegis Configurator. To configure an expanded number of devices, use the Powered Aegis Configurator Hub bundle.
Separate Admin and User Mode: Admin (Device Configuration) Mode and User Access Mode. The Aegis Fortress L3 supports one independent Admin and one User PIN. The Admin mode controls the universal programmable settings of the device and can only be accessed with the Admin PIN. The User mode is limited to basic external drive functions like read /write, unlock / lock, etc. The data on the drive can also be accessed with the admin PIN in the User mode.
Admin Forced Enrollment: Unique PIN Must be Established at Time of Setup. Eliminates Factory Default PIN Vulnerability. One of the most common vulnerabilities found in password protected peripheral devices are factory preset default PINs. If left unchanged from original factory settings, these simple default PINs serve as unlocked backdoors to these devices and can easily be used by hackers to to access whatever data is on the drive. As with all Apricorn Aegis secure devices, there are no default passwords, and no backdoors. In order to set up the Fortress L3, or any Apricorn secure drive for that matter, the admin must first establish a sufficiently complex, unique PIN before the device can be used or written to.
User Forced Enrollment: Beyond the admin, one additional user PIN can be generated to access the device’s data. This PIN can be set up by the admin at initial configuration, or the device can be deployed in a state of User Forced Enrollment, where the intended user must first establish his or her own PIN prior to using the device.
