Security at your fingertips

Apricorn's Aegis Secure Key brings security to your fingertips. This easy to use and affordable USB flash drive incorporates PIN access with military grade 256-bit AES hardware encryption. Using a rechargeable battery, the Aegis Secure Key enables the user to unlock the drive with a 7-15 digit PIN before connecting to a USB port.

FIPS 140-2 Level 3 Validated

Tested and validated by the Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) to meet 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.

Utilizes Military Grade 256-bit AES CBC Hardware Encryption

All data on the Aegis Secure Key is encrypted in real-time with the built in 256-bit AES CBC (Cipher-Block Chained) hardware encryption. Your data is protected from unauthorized access by a 7-16 unique PIN created by you. In addition the Aegis Secure Key automatically locks when unplugged from the host computer or power to the USB port is turned off.

Software Free Design - With no admin rights to contend with the Aegis Secure Key is a breeze to implement

The Aegis Secure Key is ready to go right out of the box. It does not require any software or drivers to be installed and is compatible with PCs, MACs, Linux and embedded systems. The Aegis Secure Key uses drag and drop encryption, is plug and play ready and can be used with any off the shelf backup software.

Independent User and Admin PINs

The Aegis Secure Key can be configured with independent User and Admin PINs, making it ideal for corporate and government deployment. If the User forgets their PIN, the drive can be unlocked using the Admin PIN which will then clear the old User PIN and allow the User to set a new PIN.

Drive Reset Feature

The Aegis Secure Key also includes a drive reset feature which clears both User and Admin PINs, destroys the data, creates a new randomly generated encryption key and allows the drive to be reused. The Aegis Secure Key is capable of generating an infinite number of randomly generated encryption keys, allowing the user to reset the drive as and when required.

Dust and water resistant durable aluminum housing

Tough enough to go anywhere the Aegis Secure Key resilient design makes it perfect for travel. The Secure Key's rugged, extruded aluminum, water proof casing is tamper evident and protects it against physical damage.

Sealed from Physical Attacks by Tough Epoxy Coating

The internal drive components completely protected by a super tough epoxy compound, which is virtually impossible to remove without causing permanent damage to the electronics. This barrier prevents a potential hacker from accessing the encryption circuitry and launching a variety of potential attacks.

Brute Force Self Destruct Feature

As the Aegis Secure Key is unlocked using its own keypad and not via a keyboard, it is not vulnerable to software/hardware based key-loggers or brute force attacks. In addition the Aegis Secure Key further protects your data with a "Brute Force Hack Defense Mechanism", which deletes the encryption key and destroys all stored data if the incorrect PIN is entered a total of 10 consecutive times.

Auto Lock feature

The Aegis Secure Key automatically locked once you unplug the drive from your computer's USB port.

Wear Resistant Key Pad

Designed with protection in mind, the entire Aegis Secure Drive family incorporates 'wear resistant' keypads to hide key usage and avoid tipping off a potential hacker to the commonly used keys
