The iStorage datAshur SD is a PIN authenticated, hardware encrypted, USB  Type-C flash drive designed to incorporate removable iStorage microSD Cards with capacities ranging from 32GB-1TB. Rather than incorporating fixed memory, the datAshur SD is designed with an integrated microSD Card slot making it a unique, ultra-secure and cost-effective solution that enables users to use one drive with as many iStorage microSD Cards as required, which are available in varying capacities, offering unlimited encrypted data storage. 

Furthermore, the patented iStorage datAshur SD KeyWriter software clones datAshur SD flash drives with the same encrypted encryption key enabling a secondary drive as a backup and also permits organisations to share encrypted iStorage microSD Cards with as many authorised users of cloned datAshur SD drives as required, without compromising on data security.  

All data stored on iStorage microSD Cards is encrypted (full disk encryption) using FIPS PUB 197 validated  AES-XTS 256-bit hardware encryption. In addition to the datAshur PRO2, the datAshur SD is the world’s only  encrypted USB flash drive to incorporate a secure microprocessor that is Common Criteria EAL 5+ certified, which  enhances security through true random number generation and built-in cryptography. The data encryption key  is protected by FIPS and Common Criteria validated wrapping algorithms and is securely stored on the secure  microprocessor, separate from the data. 

How does it work? 

Easy to use 

Insert your iStorage microSD Card into the datAshur SD microSD Card slot and simply enter your 8-64 digit PIN to authenticate  and use as a normal flash drive. When the drive is locked, all data on the iStorage microSD card is encrypted (full disk encryption)  using AES-XTS 256-bit hardware encryption (no software required). 

Product highlights 

  • Easy to use – 8-64 digit, PIN authenticated, hardware encrypted USB Type-C flash drive. 
  • Expand your datAshur SD capacity instantly. The microSD Card slot is designed to accept as many  encrypted iStorage microSD Cards, in varying capacities, as required. 
  • datAshur SD drives can be cloned with the same encrypted encryption key using the patented iStorage  datAshur SD KeyWriter software. This allows users with different datAshur SD drives to share encrypted  data stored on iStorage microSD Cards or to create a backup drive in case your datAshur SD drive is  lost or stolen. 
  • FIPS 140-3 Level 3 compliant, tamper proof and evident design.
