Rugged, Portable Data Security:

Aegis Fortress - USB 3.0

Tough on the outside, FIPS validated HDD encryption on the inside, and pocket-sized portability to safely carry your data anywhere you go. Available in a wide variety of storage capacities in both HDD and high speed SSD models.


Key Features


FIPS 140-2 Level 2 Inside

NIST FIPS 140 is the cryptography standard program required by the US federal government for protection of sensitive data.

FIPS 140-2 validation covers 11 areas of its cryptographic security system, including physical security, cryptographic key management and design integrity.

IP66 Certification

Dust and water resistant with durable Aluminium Housing Protecting data goes well beyond encryption. The Aegis Padlock SSD’s resilient design makes it perfect for travel and field applications. With its rugged, extruded aluminium crush-resistant casing, the Aegis Padlock SSD is tamper evident and well-protected against physical damage.


256-bit AES XTS encrypted

Software-Free, 100% hardware-based 256-bit AES XTS encrypted, onboard keypad PIN authenticated, and ultra-fast USB 3.1 (3.0) data transfer speeds. All Data is encrypted on the fly and the device’s PINs and Data remain encrypted while the drive is at rest.


Malware Prevention

All internal componentry is protected from physical tampering with a layer of hardened epoxy, and the firmware is locked down to prevent any modifications making it impervious to malware attacks such as BadUSB.


Benefits & capabilities

Brute-Force Defense.png

Brute-Force Defense

if the device comes under a physical brute force attack, your data is protected with a programmable "Brute Force Hack Defense Mechanism" which, if the programmed number (between 4 and 20) of consecutive incorrect password entries has been attempted, the device will delete its own encryption key and destroy the ability to decrypt its stored data.


Polymer-Coated Wear-Resistant Onboard Keypad

Drive is unlocked by entering a PIN on Keypad and not the Host Computer’s Keyboard. Until the secure USB drive device is unlocked via its keypad, it remains invisible to the host. The embedded keypad circumvents all hardware and software key logging attempts to capture passwords by excluding the host system from the authentication process. Polymer-coated buttons are wear-resistant and designed to not reveal most commonly used buttons.

Admin Forced Enrollment.png

Separate Admin and User Mode

The Aegis Secure Key secure USB flash drive supports independent Admin and User PINs. The Admin mode controls the universal programmable settings of the device and can only be accessed with the Admin PIN. The User mode is limited to basic external drive functions like read /write, unlock / lock, etc. The data on the drive can also be accessed with the admin PIN in the User mode.

Unattended Auto Lock

Programmable Length of Time of Inactivity Permitted Before Drive Locks Itself. All Aegis Secure USB 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.
