Two Read-only Modes

Admin control global, all-access settings and User control individual settings. Universal Read Only is set by the admin and can’t be modified or disabled only by the admin. The second read-only mode can be set and disabled by a user but can also be enabled or disabled by the admin.

Separate Admin and User Mode

Admin (Device Configuration) and User Access. Admin and User PINs are separate on the Aegis Fortress L3. The Admin mode controls the device’s universal programmable settings and requires the Admin PIN. The User mode can only read/write, unlock/lock external drives. The admin PIN can also access the drive’s data in User mode.

Admin & User Forced Enrollment

During setup, a unique PIN must be created. Before using or writing to the Fortress L3, or any other Apricorn secure drive, the admin must create a complex, unique PIN. A second user PIN can be generated to access the device’s data. This PIN can be set up by the admin during initial configuration, or by the intended user prior to using the device.

Data Recovery PINs

Restores access to drive by requiring user enrollment. It is possible for an admin to re-enrol a device in User Forced Enrollment mode if a User PIN is forgotten. It is possible to generate a new User PIN to replace an old one.

Fixed Disk or Removable Media (U.S. Patent No. 10,338,840)

Can be Configured as Fixed Disk or Removable Media in Device Setup. Compatible with embedded devices and OSs that only recognise one type of removable storage.

Brute-Force Defense

Select the number of consecutive invalid PIN attempts permitted (4-20) before crypto-erase. Your data is safeguarded from physical brute force attacks by a programmable “Brute Force Hack Defense Mechanism” that deletes the encryption key after unsuccessful password entries.

Unattended Auto Lock

Programmable Length of Time of Inactivity Permitted Before Drive Locks Itself. All Aegis Secure Drives will automatically lock once disconnected from a computer’s USB port or the power to that USB port is interrupted or after a pre-programmed period of inactivity.

Drive Reset Feature

Reset and re-deploy Apricorn devices. Drive reset clears both the User and Admin PINs, destroys data, creates a new randomly generated encryption key, and allows the drive to be reused indefinitely.

Invisible (Don't Put Text Here)
Self-Destruct PIN

When activated it generates a new PIN to ensure data security when the device’s physical security is compromised. it erases the drive’s contents but leaves it in working order and ready to deploy.
