diskAshur2 External and Portable Secure HDD/SSD With USB 3.1 by iStorage

PIN authenticated, hardware encrypted portable devics and desktop drives incorporating Enhanced Dual Generating Encryption technology

iStorage Ltd. announced their range of USB 3.1 HDD drives and SSD, consisting of the diskAshur2, diskAshur2 SSD, diskAshur PRO2, diskAshur PRO2 SSD and the diskAshur DT2 all of which are designed, developed and assembled in the UK.

These drives feature Enhanced Dual Generating Encryption (EDGE) technology making them secure HDD/SSD and desktop drives.

EDGE security features:
One of the unique and underlying security features of the GDPR compliant diskAshur range is the dedicated hardware-based secure microprocessor (Common Criteria EAL4+ ready), which employs built-in physical protection mechanisms designed to defend against external tamper, bypass laser attacks and fault injections.

Unlike other solutions, all the drives within this range react to automated hacking attempts by entering the deadlock frozen state, which renders all such attacks as useless.

In plain and simple terms, without the PIN.

With software free set up and operation, the diskAshur range is platform/device independent and works across all OSs including all versions of MS Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, Chrome, Thin clients, Zero Clients and embedded systems. In fact, the drives will work on any device with a USB port.

diskAshur PRO2 SSD

The diskAshur USB 3.1 portable HDD and SSD is aimed for the end user looking for an easy to use secure solution for storing all their data. Available in four striking colours (Phantom Black, Ocean Blue, Fiery Red and Racing Green) and with capacity options from 128GB to 2TB.

The diskAshur features a smooth fascia that doubles up as shock-absorbers, is water and dust resistant (IP 56 certified) and supplied with a stylish and sturdy travel case. The contemporary design also features an integrated cable which can be conveniently stored away when not in use.

diskAshur DT2

diskAshur family:
The diskAshur PRO2 USB 3.1 portable HDD is available in a graphite housing and is a secure storage device. The diskAshur PRO2 portable HDD and the diskAshur PRO2 SSD are designed to be FIPS 140-2 Level 3, NCSC CPA Foundation Level, Common Criteria and NLNCSA government certified, water and dust resistant (IP 56 certified). The diskAshur PRO2 is available in capacities of up to 2TB (HDD) and 1TB (SSD) and is supplied with a protective carry case.

In addition to incorporating a secure microprocessor, encrypting the data and the encryption key, the diskAshur PRO adds another barrier between your data and a hacker, with all of the components completely covered by a layer of tough epoxy resin which is virtually impossible to remove without causing permanent damage to the components. The barrier prevents a potential hacker from accessing the critical components and launching a variety of futile attacks. Furthermore, the tamper evident design of the diskAshur PRO2 will provide visible evidence if attempted tampering has occurred.

For those that require a high capacity solution, look to diskAshur DT2 HDD. Designed for those that need maximum security, protection and storage, this desktop drive is designed to be FIPS 140-2 Level 2, NCSC CPA Foundation Level, Common Criteria and NLNCSA certified and is available in capacities ranging from 1TB up to an almighty 8TB!

In addition to EDGE technology, diskAshur range includes following common features:

  • Brute force hack defence mechanism – Intelligently programmed to protect against all forms of brute force attacks. Upon the 15th consecutive incorrect PIN entry, the diskAshur drive assumes it is being attacked and will delete the encryption key and lock itself, rendering all data previously stored on the drive as lost forever. At this point the drive can be reset to factory default settings and redeployed.

  • Self destruct feature: Users can pre-program the diskAshur drives with a self destruct PIN which, once entered, instantly deletes the encryption key rendering all data previously stored on the drive as lost forever.

  • Unattended auto-lock feature: Set the drive to automatically lock after a pre-determined amount of time where the drive has not been used.

  • Wear resistant epoxy coated keypad: Designed with protection in mind, the diskAshur range offer a wear resistant epoxy coated keypad which hides key usage to avoid tipping off a potential hacker to commonly used keys.
