diskAshur DT USB3 256-bit 6TB

What is diskAshur DT?

The iStorage diskAshur DT is the world's first portable hardware encrypted hard drive with PIN code access and capacities of up to 8TB. The diskAshur DT utilises military grade XTS-AES 256-bit hardware encryption, which encrypts all data stored on the drive in real time. Should the drive be lost or stolen, the user can rest assured that all data held on the drive is safe and cannot be accessed by any unauthorised third party, even if the hard drive is removed from its enclosure.

Why the diskAshur DT?

Did you know that millions of flash drives are lost or stolen every year and this figure is rising. Have you ever considered the impact of losing your non-encrypted USB flash drive? Your data would be at the mercy of anyone who stumbles across it.

Information Commissioner's Office (ICO)

The Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) now has the power to fine businesses and government bodies up to £500,000 for serious breaches of the Data Protection Act. This includes the loss of an unencrypted USB flash drive that contains client data. The ICO has been very clear in advising businesses and government bodies to encrypt all data that workers access, they also recognise that data which is encrypted and lost or stolen is not vulnerable to compromise.

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

The European Union will soon have the power to fine companies ?20 million or 4% of their annual turnover if they are found to be in breach of the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The forthcoming legislation compels anyone who holds data on EU Citizens to implement adequate security measures to protect data from loss or theft. Loss of confidential data can have a devastating effect on both businesses and consumers. It could lead to a hefty fine, the downfall of a business, embarrassment, job losses and adverse media attention. The iStorage diskAshur DT can protect you against all of this.

What is the difference between software and hardware encryption?

Software encryption:
- Complex passwords can be cracked easily and quickly with a Brute Force Attack
- Simple password cracking software is readily available on the internet, often free of charge
- Software encryption is vulnerable to key loggers – where every key pressed is logged in either a software or hardware key logger
- Software encryption can be corrupted by viruses
- Software encryption is much slower when compared to hardware encryption
- Software encryption needs to be installed on each computer that the external storage device is used on
- Software encryption shares computers resources to encrypt data with other programs on the computer, making it only as safe as your computer.

Hardware encryption:
- The diskAshur DT cannot be brute force attacked
- The diskAshur DT is not vulnerable to keyloggers as the PIN is entered on the unit rather than the keyboard
- The diskAshur DT does not require any software and can be used with Windows, Mac, Linux, Chrome, Android, Thin Clients and Embedded Systems.
- Encryption is performed in real-time thus there is no speed degradation
- No software or drivers are required

Utilizes Military Grade FIPS PUB 197 Validated Encryption Algorithm

Featuring military grade 256-bit XTS-AES hardware encryption, the iStorage diskAshur DT seamlessly encrypts all data on the drive in real-time, keeping your data safe even if the hard drive is removed from its enclosure.

Software Free Design – With no admin rights to contend with the IStorage diskAshur DT is a breeze to implement

With no software installation required for setup or operation and the ability to run on any platform, the iStorage diskAshur DT provides stress free deployment in corporate environments. Its Administrator Feature allows enrollment of up to five unique user ID's and one administrator, making it a useful business collaboration tool.

Super fast USB 3.0 Connection – Data transfer speeds up to 10X faster than USB 2.0

With a super speed USB 3.0 interface, you can now access your files faster than ever before. The iStorage diskAshur DT is also backwards compatible with USB 2.0 and 1.1 ports. testing content.

Data at Rest Protection

All data, PINs, and encryption keys are always encrypted while at rest.

Sealed from Physical Attacks by Tough Epoxy Coating

In addition to encrypting all of the PINs, data and the encryption key itself, the iStorage diskAshur DT adds another barrier between your data and a hacker. The encryption chip and circuitry of the iStorage diskAshur DT are completely protected by a super tough epoxy compound, which is 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

The iStorage diskAshur DT uses a three pronged approach to protect against a Brute Force attack. The first step is to deny access to the drive until the drive can verify the user PIN. After several incorrect attempts the drive will lock itself, requiring the drive to be plugged in again to input a PIN. This feature blocks automated attempts to enter PIN numbers. Lastly, after a predetermined number of failed PIN entries, the diskAshur DT assumes it is being attacked and will destroy the encryption key and lock itself, rendering the data useless and requiring a total reset to redeploy the iStorage diskAshur DT.

Auto Lock feature

The iStorage diskAshur DT auto lock feature enables you to set the unattended drive to lock after a pre-determined amount of time of your choosing.
