NEW AEGIS SECURE KEY 3.0 480GB ENCRYPTED THUMB DRIVE

The Aegis Secure Key Now Offers a 480GB – the Highest Storage Capacity of any Hardware-Based Encrypted Flash Key on the Market.

Apricorn (www.apricorn.com), the leading manufacturer of software-free, hardware-encrypted USB drives, added three new sizes to their already expansive Aegis Secure Key 3.0 line, raising the total number of capacity options to seven (8, 16, 30, 60, 120, 240, and 480GB.) With last year’s introduction of the 240GB Aegis Secure Key 3, Apricorn had already doubled the storage capacity of the nearest competitor. This year, Apricorn has again doubled down on that size advantage with their new 480GB Secure Key: roughly four times the competition’s max size of 120GB. And with the falling cost of flash storage, these larger capacity, super secure hardware-encrypted flash keys have rapidly become the ideal tool for corporate data security deployment.

aegis“This is our most advanced product to date; besides packing half a terabyte of encrypted data into a thumbdrive, we have expanded its feature set to surpass any rival,” says Mike McCandless, Apricorn’s VP of Sales and Marketing. “And keeping true to the Apricorn tradition, The ASK 3.0 is completely software-free, cross-platform compatible with any OS, and has embedded authentication so no security parameters are ever shared with the host.”

Beyond the expansion in size range, the Secure Key 3.0 carries the highest portable device security validation that the NIST grants: FIPS 140-2 level 3, and boasts an impressive list of features that surpasses other flash keys in its class such as a separate admin and user mode, two read-only modes, forced enrollment, programmable brute-force defense, a lock-override mode, plus a host of additional features that permit the Secure Key 3.0 to adhere to most security policies.

“Now that our high-capacity Secure Keys have come down so much in price, CISOs are rethinking the role of encrypted thumb drives in their business. No longer are they limited to carrying and storing small amounts of data. Now you’ve got secure, affordable flash storage capacities ranging up to nearly half a terabyte, USB 3.0 and flash transfer speeds, plus a laundry list of advanced security features; yet we’re still only talking about a device that is about the size of a pack of gum.”
