Did you know that millions of external data storage devices are lost
or stolen every year and this figure is constantly on the rise. Have
you ever considered the impact of losing your non-encrypted USB
hard drive? Your data would be at the mercy of anyone who stumbles
across it. New and enhanced legislation is a global issue that
demands strong protection of specific data categories. Nowadays,
most international data protection acts demand adequate protection
of personally identifiable information (PII).
Government bodies the world over are very clear in advising
businesses and institutional organisations to encrypt all data that
workers access. Data which is encrypted and is lost or stolen is not
vulnerable to compromise.

Brute Force Hack Defence Mechanism:
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 diskAshur
Self Destruct Feature:
You can pre-program the diskAshur DT with your own unique Self Destruct PIN which, once implemented, instantly destroys all PINs, data and
creates a new encryption key.
Variable Timing Circuit Technology:
Protection against hacker attempts doesn’t stop with Brute Force. Incorporated into the diskAshur DT electronics is iStorage’s Variable Time Circuit
(VTC) technology, working to thwart “timing attacks” aimed at accessing the drive by studying the behaviour and infiltrating the diskAshur DT’s
Sealed from Physical Attacks by Tough Epoxy Coating:
In addition to encrypting all of the PINs, data and the encryption key itself, the diskAshur DT adds another barrier between your data and a hacker.
The encryption chip and circuitry of the 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 crypto module and
launching a variety of potential attacks.
Wear Resistant Keypad
Designed with protection in mind, the diskAshur DT’s wear resistant keypad hides key usage to avoid tipping off a potential hacker to commonly
used keys.
Auto Lock Feature:
Set the unattended drive to lock after a pre-determined amount of time.
High quality aluminium, heat dissipating enclosure.
