DatAshur USB Encrypted Solid State XTS AES 256-Bit USB Storage
One of the most secure, fastest solid state portable USB devices on the planet! With software free operation, cross platform compatibility, USB 3.0 speed, increased capacities, plus a host of high level security features that you’d never expect to find in a flash drive - the DatAshur SSD brings an array of advanced data security to your fingertips.
This easy-to-use USB flash drive incorporates PIN access with military grade 256-bit AES hardware encryption that will last for years and perfectly fits inside a robust, waterproof and tamper evident aluminium casing which protects against physical damage whilst the internal drive components are sealed with a tamper proof coating.
READ ONLY MODE
Administrator mode allows the setup of a ‘Read Only’ user mode so that data can only be read from DatAshur SSD, protecting the data from accidental deletion and changes to the file’s content.
BOOT DELAY FEATURE
Use DatAshur SSD as a bootable USB flash drive without the need for any configuration. DatAshur SSD devices are equipped with a 10 second uninterrupted boot delay in order to accommodate power cycling during a host boot process.
FIPS 140-2 LEVEL 3 VALIDATED - CERTIFICATE NUMBER 2431
The DatAshur SSD has been certified as FIPS 140-2 Level 3 having undergone the process of validation to meet the U.S. government standards for information technology and computer security. NIST FIPS 140 is the cryptography standard program required by the US federal government for protection of sensitive data. The DatAshur SSD’s FIPS 140-2 validation covers 11 areas of its cryptographic security system, including physical security, cryptographic key management and design integrity.
Available in four (4) levels, the datAshur SSD’s FIPS 140-2 Level 3 certification encompasses both the DatAshur SSD’s physically secure features as well as its identity based authentication.
MILITARY GRADE 256-bit AES XTS HARDWARE ENCRYPTION
All data on the DatAshur SSD is encrypted 'on-the-fly' with the in-built XTS-AES 256-bit hardware encryption.
ONBOARD ALPHANUMERIC KEYPAD
Using an internal fully rechargeable battery, the DatAshur SSD enables the user to unlock the drive with a 7-16 digit PIN BEFORE connecting to the USB port on your computer, tablet or mobile device. The embedded keypad prevents hardware and software key logging attempts to capture your password entered via the host system.
SOFTWARE FREE DESIGN
With no admin rights to contend with, the DatAshur SSD is a breeze to implement.
INDEPENDANT USER AND ADMIN PINS
The DatAshur SSD can be configured with independent User and Admin PINs, making it ideal for corporate and government deployment. If the user forgets their PIN, the drive can be unlocked using the admin PIN which can then clear the forgotten user PIN and allow for the user to set a new PIN.
DRIVE RESET FEATURE
The DatAshur SSD also includes a drive reset feature which clears both user and admin PINs, destroys the data, creates a new randomly generated encryption key and allows the drive to be reused. The DatAshur SSD is capable of generating an infinite number of randomly generated encryption keys, allowing the user to reset the drive as often as required.
IP58 DUST / WATER RESISTANT DURABLE ALUMINIUM HOUSING
The DatAshur SSD's resilient design makes it perfect for travel and field applications. With its rugged, extruded aluminium crush resistant casing, the datAshur SSD is tamper evident and protected against physical damage. The Ingress Protection (IP) rating is an international standard that tests electrical products against two main environmental factors, liquids and dust.
The testing is done independently by a 3rd party and involves two separate tests. In order to receive the certification, the datAshur SSD was subjected to a dust chamber for eight (8) hours and submerged in a water tank at one (1) meter for 30 minutes, after which the DatAshur SSD was tested for functionality and inspected for water and dust in its electronics.
SEALED FROM PHYSICAL ATTACKS BY TOUGH EPOXY COATING
The internal drive components are completely protected by a super tough epoxy compound making it virtually impossible to remove without causing permanent damage to the electronics. This barrier prevents a potential hacker from accessing the encryption circuitry and launching a variety of potential attacks.
BRUTE FORCE SELF DESTRUCT FEATURE
As the DatAshur SSD is unlocked using its own keypad and not via a keyboard, it is not vulnerable to software / hardware based key loggers or brute force attacks. In addition, the datAshur SSD further protects your data with a programmable 'Brute Force Hack Defence Mechanism' which deletes the encryption key and destroys all stored data if the incorrect PIN is entered up to a total of 20 consecutive times.
AUTO LOCK FEATURE
The DatAshur SSD automatically locks once you unplug the drive from your computer's USB port or power to the USB port is turned off or after a pre-programmed period of inactivity.
WEAR RESISTANT KEYPAD
Designed with protection in mind, the entire dataShur family incorporates ‘wear resistant keypads’ to hide key usage and avoid tipping off a potential hacker to the commonly used keys.
LOCK OVERRIDE MODE
Designated for specific cases in which the DatAshur SSD needs to remain unlocked through USB port re-enumeration such as during reboot, or passing through a virtual machine. With the toughness and security you'd expect, the DatAshur SSD brings new features, speed, and storage capacities that you'd never expect in a flash drive.
DO I NEED TO BE CONCERNED ABOUT MY INFORMATION LEAKING?
Yes. If you have documents, files, pictures or any other material which you need to keep from prying eyes, or need to travel with such data, then a datAshur USB encryption device is a must! You can be safe in the knowledge that your information is 100% encrypted from unauthorised access and from brute force modern hacking techniques. Corporate espionage, terrorist activities and kidnapping to name a few are some of the risks you face when your business and personal information are open to anyone who cares to want them.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SOFTWARE AND HARDWARE ENCRYPTION?
IF MY DATASHUR SSD DEVICE FALLS IN THE WRONG HANDS, IS MY DATA SAFE?
Yes. The device is integrated the highest level AES 256-bit encryption which is FIPS 140-2 level 3 certified to ensure the contents cannot be accessed without he correctly entered PIN code. Even in the hands of a skilled hacker the device incorporates a unique hack defence mechanism from all brute forces to ensure the encrypted key is deleted along with all data stored on the device.
HOW MUCH STORAGE IS SUITABLE FOR ME?
This really depends on the amount of information you need to carry around? For example: If you only have a little data to move securely from A to B then the 30 GB model is an excellent storage. If you have a lot of storage to move around or keep securely then the 60 GB model is more than suffice.
