Message Text: Apricorn has expanded into the ruggedized space with the Aegis Padlock SSD, a tough encrypted USB 3.0 solid state drive.

Constructed with military grade durability and FIPS 140-2 validated security, the Aegis Padlock SSD is designed specifically to meet the needs of Government, Military and Law Enforcement.

Boasting a crush resistant, aluminum enclosure rated to over 6500 lbs, the Aegis Padlock SSD is both water resistant and impervious to dust and grit.

All data on the drive is protected with real-time AES-XTS 256-bit hardware encryption and access to the drive is protected with the user's unique PIN via an onboard keypad.

Validated to NIST FIPS 140-2 Level 2 requirements, the cryptography standard required by the US federal government for protection of sensitive data; the Aegis Padlock SSD has undergone testing on 11 cryptographic levels, including design integrity, physical security and cryptographic key management.

With software free setup and operation, the Aegis Padlock SSD requires no software updates or admin rights, making it easy to implement in corporate environments. The SSD also incorporates security enhancements such as a Timed Auto-lock and Brute Force Self Destruct feature that uses a crypto erase to destroy the encryption key when the PIN is incorrectly entered 20 consecutive times.

Available in capacities 120 GB ($429), 240 GB ($629) and 480 GB ($999), the SSD comes with integrated USB 3.0 cable for data transfer speeds up to 230 MB/s and is is available from online retailers and Apricorn's website at http://www.apricorn.com/padlock-ssd.html (a 3 year limited warranty).
