  7. Apricorn: Encrypted Portable Drives – Aegis Fortress L3

Aegis Fortress L3

The L3 is the fastest, most robust, and highest capacity drive ever, with all of the same advanced security features as our Aegis secure drives, but in a more rugged enclosure. The Fortress L3 is built to NIST’s highest level of FIPS validation for portable devices: 140-2 level 3. The Fortress L3 is small enough to fit in a pocket or briefcase but large enough to carry up to 20TB of data securely and easily. Both HDD and high-speed SSD models come in a variety of storage capacities. In addition to the onboard keypad PIN authentication, the Aegis Fortress uses ultra-fast USB 3.1 (3.0) data transfer speeds. Every bit of data is encrypted on the fly and kept encrypted while the drive is idle. The Aegis Fortress runs on Windows, Linux, Mac, Android, Symbian, and Chrome. It also thrives in environments where software-authenticated encrypted devices can’t work, like embedded systems and equipment with a powered USB port but no keyboard.

Why Aegis Fortress L3

Don't Put Text Here
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. Aegis Configurator compatible, the windows-Based App that quickly sets up multiple devices simultaneously.

FIPS 140 – 2, Level 3 Certified

The highest level of FIPS validation is granted by NIST. The Fortress L3 now fulfils FIPS standards for information technology and computer security. NIST FIPS 140 is the cryptography standard program required by the US federal government for the protection of sensitive data.

Fastest Read / Write Speeds

The 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 Ally Enclosure

Hardened epoxy secures tamper-resistant/uni-directional breakaway security fasteners driven into the toughest enclosure, which is milled from a solid block of aluminum alloy.

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.

Invisible (Don't Put Text Here)
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.

Invisible (Don't Put Text Here)
Data Recovery PINs

Forces user re-enrollment and restores drive access. In the event that a User PIN is forgotten, Recovery PINs can be programmed by the admin at any time by creating a new state of User Forced Enrollment, leaving the Admin PIN and the drive data intact. The user regains access to the drive after generating a new User PIN to replace the forgotten one.

Polymer-Coated Keypad

Drive is Unlocked by Entering a PIN on Keypad. It defeats all hardware and software key logging attempts. By excluding the host system from the authentication process, the embedded keypad defeats all hardware and software key logging attempts. The polymer-coated prevents revealing the commonly used buttons.

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.

Invisible (Don't Put Text Here)
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. The Self-Destruct PIN protects by erasing the drive’s contents but leaving it in working order and ready to deploy.
