Our fastest, most secure, and most rugged 256-bit AES XTS encrypted USB external drive to date: Aegis Fortress L3

 

Delivering all of the same next level security features as our Aegis line of secure drives, in an extremely rugged enclosure, and with a new, ultra fast encryption chipset, the L3 is the fastest, most robust, highest capacity drive we’ve ever made. Tough on the outside, the Fortress L3 is designed to meet NIST’s highest level of FIPS validation attainable for portable devices: 140-2 level 3. Small enough to go in a pocket or briefcase, large enough to carry up to 16TB of data, the Fortress L3 allows you to securely and easily carry large amounts of sensitive data everywhere 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, and 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, Symbian 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.

 

Featuring AegisWare™The heart and soul of every Apricorn Secure Device, AegisWare is our patent-protected firmware combined with the industry’s most advanced feature set.

 

FIPS 140-2 level 3 Validated (pending Q3 2019)The highest level of FIPS validation granted by NIST The Fortress L3 expands the validation boundary beyond the encryption module, to include all of the electronics, the drive, the entire internal structure and the enclosure’s fasteners. With this FIPS validation, the Fortress L3 more than 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.

 

Our Fastest Read / Write Speeds YetThe Aegis Fortress L3’s new chipset delivers SSD write speed increases of up to 150% and read speeds of up to 180% in comparison to previous Aegis Fortress models. There is also an appreciable performance increase in the HDD models too.

 

Aircraft Grade 6061 Aluminum Alloy EnclosureOur toughest enclosure is milled from a solid block of aluminum alloy and sealed closed with tamper resistant / evident uni-directional breakaway security fasteners which are driven and cemented in place with hardened epoxy

 

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.
