Like many of this auspicious company’s products, the Datashur Pro 2 places a massive emphasis on keeping your sensitive data safe and away from prying eyes…” “This is a seriously hard-wearing USB drive. During our tests, we tried to physically damage or tamper with it as much as possible to prove the anti-tampering measures work, and we were very pleasantly surprised. The epoxy resin this drive is coated with makes it virtually impossible to damage; despite several rigorous tests, we never managed to break into it. Signs of tampering are also very clear on the surface, so if someone’s damaged your drive, you’ll know it.”

We actually did use some hacking software tools as we always do with secure drives (we’re no hackers however) and most of them wouldn’t even recognize the drive when plugged into our systems (just like our hardware information tools).

“If you want maximum security and something more portable then the datAshur Pro2 flash drive will be a more suitable option”

“This is where products like the iStorage datAshur Pro2 come into play. This hardware-encrypted flash drive is the top of the range option from iStorage and has some of the highest encryption standards possible

“If you are ever in the situation of transporting important information this is an investment worth making. Any form of customer or client information needs to comply with GDPR, and the fines for breaches can be extensive. Similarly, if company secrets got out early, such as product designs, specifications and other data this could be disastrous for any company. So the relative cost of this compared to losing data is negligible.”

“anyone dealing with any highly sensitive data would be wise to invest in an encrypted device such as this.”

That is where iStorage comes in with their diskashur DT2 it offers AES-XTS 256-bit full disk hardware encryption, is FIPS PUB 197 validated and is the world’s first and only NCSC CPA, FIPS 140-2 Level 2/3, NLNCSA BSPA and NATO restricted level certified encrypted Desktop Hard Drive.”
“iStorage offers the diskashur DT2 in capacities ranging from 1TB all the way up to 14TB. The 8TB version that we reviewed today is selling for $623, which is not cheap by any means, but you are not going to find a drive that offers this much security for your data.”

“The datAshur Pro is a robust and secure device that is easy to use and priceless in protecting any sensitive data. The cap and seal provide water and dust resistance, real-time AES-XTS 256-bit encryption ensures data protection, and PIN prevents any unauthorized access. Very useful for organizations is also the ability to set up a user and administrator PIN, for example by setting only the user’s reading rights. Even if you forget the unlocked device that is plugged into a USB port, it is possible to set its automatic lock at a certain time. The performance of the device is solid and will record data at about 30 MB / s when it’s not very small files (we wrote from it 8.524 MB of data for 273 seconds, which is about 31.1 MB / s).

iStorage at datAshur Pro provides a three year limited warranty, and its price in Croatia is about 1,600 kuna. It may seem like a high amount, but given the opportunities it offers to protect essential data, the price is justified. It is also useful to know that in Europe this device can also be purchased at a cheaper price of 155 € (64GB).”

“The diskAshur 2 external SSD boasts high levels of protection with hardware encryption and a keypad to gain entry, but even with the enhanced level of security, the drive is easy to use and offers more than enough performance for the majority of its potential users…. To be fair, the main focus of the drive is on its security credentials, so performance may not necessarily be on the potential user’s ideal features list, but the speeds achieved are certainly nothing to complain about, even for power users. “

“There is no getting away from the fact that the diskAshur PRO2 is expensive. The 2TB version we have here has an RRP of Ł329, but can be bought at the time of writing at the slightly lower price of Ł300 at Amazon UK. If we put the price aside for a moment, this thing is a premium product. Build quality is rock solid, and it couldn’t be easier to use. Given that a huge amount of security failures are down to human error, that’s a really big selling point here. Performance is as good as you can expect from a mechanical hard drive”

“When I tested the datAshur Pro USB drive, I talked a bit about the advantages and disadvantages of using either type of encryption and the same principles can be applied in the case of the iStorage diskAshur 2. The Microsoft Windows 10 OS comes with BitLocker as a free option and it is a reliable way to password-secure your HDD drives, being able to offer some amount of protection for your data. But the encryption is still as secure as your computer (or mobile device where the encryption/decryption process will happen), so, considering that barely any computer is left unconnected to the Internet, you are left a lot more vulnerable than you would by using a hardware-type encryption.”

“The iStorage diskAshur 2 is a rugged external HDD built to offer full protection for the stored data by relying on the real-time military grade AES 256-bit hardware encryption (XTS mode) and ensuring that without the PIN, any type of attack is rendered useless. These type of devices have been around for quite a bit, being very common in the corporate world where data safety is the number one priority, so the targeted audience for iStorage is mainly the companies, while the consumer market may be a bit more reserved on adopting this type of security solution.”

“If you care about your data and need to carry sensitive documents with you the diskAshur2 from iStorage is the perfect device for you. There are not many devices out there that give you full hardware-based encryption like this drive does. Another awesome feature of this drive is that all the components (inside the casing) are completely covered by a layer of super tough epoxy resin, which is virtually impossible to remove without causing permanent damage to the components. So no one is going to be able to bust the drive open and take the drive out and gain access to your data. At the price there are plenty of faster or higher capacity drives, but none that offer the level of security the diskAshur2 offers. Overall ThinkComputers gives the iStorage diskAshur2 External Hard Drive a 9 out of 10 score.”

“The first thing to note is that iStorage isn’t just touting security features on their marketing slides: the company went out and received several highly regarded certifications, with the most impressive (in my opinion) being FIPS 140-2 validation through the United States National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). You can read about all of the requirements that FIPS 140-2 validation entails at the NIST website, but in a nutshell, reviewers look at everything from role-based access, the physical security of the device, cryptographic key management, EMI impact, and more. The standard has four levels, and the diskAshur PRO2 was validated at level 3.
In addition to FIPS 140-2 validation, the diskAshur PRO2 also has NLNCSA BSPA certification as well as NATA Restricted Level certification. It also is NCSC CPA rated, and meets Common Criteria EAL4+ (security and government both love their acronyms!)…although many companies claim that their devices are secure, iStorage went the extra mile and had it independently validated; for me, the fact that it received FIPS 140-2 validation from NIST proves that it’s a top-notch value because that’s a difficult bar to reach…”

The drive reacts to automated hacking attempts by entering a deadlock frozen state meaning all attacks are useless. Additionally, with the brute force hack defence mechanism feature, after 15 PIN attempts, the drive assumes it’s being attacked and wipes all data, giving peace of mind that no one will gain access to the drive.

“iStorage has created the datAshur Pro USB stick for mobile use. Those who often travel with important data will find the ideal partner with this storage medium. Of course, the USB stick with a base price of 66.52 euros for the 4-GB variant up to 146.97 euros in the 64-GB variant is not a bargain, but the user receives a very secure medium, which by the supplied case is also waterproof and dustproof. If you order the stick directly from the manufacturer, you can also add engravings (text, numbers and / or logo). The price per engraving is an additional 6 euros. We are convinced of the security that this medium offers, as well as its presentation and performance, and award 8 out of 10 points.”

“The diskAshur² is for those wanting a secure solution for storing private data and more. The unique security feature is the hardware based secure microprocessor, which employs built-in physical protection mechanisms which defends against external tamper/hacking attempts. The drive reacts to automated hacking attempts by entering a deadlock frozen state meaning all attacks are useless. Additionally, with the brute force hack defence mechanism feature, after 15 PIN attempts, the drive assumes it’s being attacked and wipes all data, giving peace of mind that no one will gain access to the drive. Available in 4 striking colours and from 500GB to 5TB with prizes between £159 and £449 from Lyreco UK and Amazon.com.”
