Apricorn's Aegis Secure Key 3.0 USB Drives

Packing a mighty punch in a tiny package is the Apricorn's Aegis Secure Key 3.0 line of software-free, hardware-encrypted USB drives, which recently added a 480GB version. Apricorn claims that the new Flash key is "roughly four times the competition's max size of 120GB" and "the ideal tool for corporate data security deployment".

Apricorn boasts that Aegis Secure Keys are completely software-free, cross-platform-compatible with any OS and have embedded authentication, meaning that no security parameters ever are shared with the host. They further carry the highest portable device security validation that the NIST grants: FIPS 140-2 level 3, and feature separate admin and user modes, two read-only modes, forced enrollment, programmable brute-force defense, a lock-override mode and the ability to adhere to most security policies.

Apricorn's Aegis Secure Key 3.0 is available in 8GB, 16GB, 30GB, 60GB, 120GB, 240GB and 480GB capacities.
