EDGE™ Security Features:
One of the unique and underlying security features of the GDPR compliant diskAshur² hard drive and diskAshur² SSD is the dedicated hardware based secure microprocessor (Common Criteria EAL4+ ready), which employs built-in physical protection mechanisms designed to defend against external tamper, bypass laser attacks and fault injections. Essentially the drives feature technology that encrypts both the data and the encryption key, giving you confidence that private information is secure and protected.

So in short, without the PIN, there’s no way in! and you can’t get more ‘James Bond-esque’ than this!

Ideal for users looking for an easy to use secure solution for storing all their data, elegantly designed and available in 4 striking colours (Phantom Black, Ocean Blue, Fiery Red and Racing Green) meaning there’s plenty of technological features to get to grips with. In capacity options from 128GB to 2TB, there will be space for all the family.

 

 

The science bit:
With software free set up and operation, the diskAshur HDD and diskAshur² SSD is platform/device independent meaning it works across all operating systems including all versions of MS Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, Chrome, Thin Clients, Zero Clients and embedded systems.
In fact, the drives will work on any device with a USB port!

Additionally, with an ultra smooth fascia that doubles up as shock-absorbers, the drives being water and dust resistant (IP 56 certified) and supplied with a stylish and sturdy travel case, the iconic contemporary design also features an integrated cable which can be conveniently stored away when not in use.

In addition to EDGE technology, the following common features are included:

*   Brute Force Hack Defence Mechanism – Intelligently programmed to protect against all forms of Brute Force Attacks. Upon the 15th consecutive incorrect PIN entry, the diskAshur drive assumes it is being attacked and will delete the encryption key and lock itself, rendering all data previously stored on the drive as lost forever. At this point the drive can be reset to factory default settings and redeployed.

*   Self Destruct Feature: Users can pre-program the diskAshur drives with a unique Self Destruct PIN which, once entered, instantly deletes the encryption key rendering all data previously stored on the drive as lost forever.

*   Unattended Auto-Lock Feature: Set the drive to automatically lock after a pre-determined amount of time where the drive has not been used.

*   Wear Resistant Epoxy Coated Keypad: Designed with protection in mind, the diskAshur range offer a wear resistant epoxy coated keypad which hides key usage to avoid tipping off a potential hacker to commonly used keys.
