Product Overview 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.

• Secure access with personalised 6-16 digit PIN.
• Complete security with Real Time 256-bit Military Grade XTS-AES Hardware Encryption.
• No software required – no Admin Rights required.
• Rugged and portable design.
• Compatible with any OS – Windows, Mac, Linux, Chrome, Android, Thin Clients & Embedded Systems.
• Brute Force Hack Defence Mechanism.
• Set a self-destruct PIN that when entered deletes all encryption keys and renders all data stored on the drive as inaccessible.
• Capacities of 1TB, 2TB, 3TB, 4TB, 6TB & 8TB.
• Encrypts all data on the fly, as fast as any USB 3.0 hard drive.
• USB 3.0 interface.
• Admin feature – set 1 Admin and up to 4 user PIN codes.
• Utilises FIPS PUB 197 Validated Encryption Algorithm.
• Guaranteed with 2 year warranty. Features 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.

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.

Wear Resistant Key Pad
Designed with protection in mind, the entire iStorage family incorporates ‘wear resistant’ keypads to hide key usage and avoid tipping off a potential hacker to the commonly used keys.

VTC Technology
Protection against hacker attempts doesn’t stop with Brute Force. Incorporated into the diskAshur DT’s electronics is the 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 electronics.

High Quality Aluminium, Heat Dissipating Enclosure
The iStorage diskAshur DT robust design has a solid aluminium enclosure which is ideal for whisking away heat from the rotating drive inside.
