Apricorn Aegis Bio 3 500 GB USB 3.0 256-bit Encryption Portable Hard Drive A25-3BIO256-500 (Black)
The Aegis Bio 3.0 is a biometrically secure USB 3.0 portable hard drive with real-time AES-XTS 256-bit hardware encryption. With secure fingerprint access you can unlock the drive with just the swipe of your finger. The Bio’s software free design works on any operating system, including PC, Mac or Linux. And with USB 3.0 data transfer speeds of up to 5Gbps. Real-time 256-bit AES-XTS encryption seamlessly encrypts all data on the drive, protecting the drive even if it is removed from its casing. Once registered, just swipe your finger on the sensor for access to your files. Up to five fingerprint profiles can be stored and can be accessed without software on the host system. The Aegis Bio’s unique Embedded Enrollment keeps all fingerprint enrollment and authentication within the Aegis Bio circuitry, independent of the host system. While other biometric drives use a CD emulation module or software on the host system for fingerprint enrollment, the Aegis Bio requires no software, enabling it to be used on any USB host. The fingerprint sensor uses advanced live layer imaging technology to provide the most accurate fingerprint image possible. The sensor uses three different sensing methods that penetrate outer layers of skin to read live layers under the skin (Anti-spoofing protection), meeting the stringent image quality requirements of NIST and the FBI. Replacing passwords with fingerprint biometrics improves security since passwords can be lost or stolen, and users enjoy freedom from memorizing passwords. With no software installation required for setup or operation and the ability to run on any platform, the Aegis Bio 3.0 provides stress free deployment in corporate environments. Users are able to use the Aegis Bio on any USB host making it ideal for those that use multiple devices and platforms.
