“I think the diskAshur2 is the Fort Knox of hard drives! It is ultra-secure but easy to use. Unlike solutions such as Microsoft’s Bitlocker, the diskAshur2 requires no software and is compatible with any operating system. I see the physical aspect of the diskAshur2’s numeric PIN keyboard as a great offering for IT businesses. Software-based encryption tools need setting up across multiple computers. The diskAshur2 uses a security method in a PIN that everybody is familiar with and requires little training.”

“datashur Pro² is protected by FIPS-140-2, and is certified to NATO (Restricted Level) and the British National Cyber Security Centre accreditation. Although a security vulnerability could be identified in the future, according to today’s Level of knowledge – the datashur Pro² is well suited for security in the transport of sensitive data.”

“if the value of the data on a flash drive is significantly higher than the price of the flash drive itself and there is a categorical desire to protect them even from a technically savvy scoundrel – then iStorage datAshur PRO2 can do this.”

Separately, it is worth mentioning the assurances about protection against uneven wear of the paint on the keys of iStorage datAshur PRO2,

If you simply transfer multimedia files to and fro, then in the first place you see a very large price tag iStorage datAshur PRO2, and if you talk about serious data and the need to keep them safe, then in the first place you will notice different degrees of data protection and a decent implementation.”

“Drives with automatic encryption offer a solution, and sometimes those type drives can be found pretty cheaply. But, as they say in the Internet Technology Department, “Good security does not come cheap.” “iStorage has been in the business of making hardware-encrypted, portable data-storage devices since 2009. Ten years after its founding, the company’s diskAshur PRO2 was named the Best Encryption Product of 2019 by Cyber Defence Magazine. The “Defence” spelling offers a clue where the company is based: London, England. The British take their online privacy and data security a bit more seriously than do Americans.”

“I have previously reviewed a couple of the Apricorn Aegis products and in comparison to these the iStorage diskashur² offers tremendous value for money”

“For business owners, I would say a device like this is essential to secure anything sensitive such as client data, business finances and generally anything you would prefer not to be stolen, and for business owners the cost of such a drive is negligible…Even for home users, I think this is a wise investment, 2TB can store a LOT of information, you are not going to be using this to back up your movies and MP3s. Even the 1TB model should be more than adequate to store all your financial and personal information.”
“While it is expensive, it is cheaper than its competitors. Hardware encryption also offers superior security and usability over software alternatives. So for anyone serious about data security, this is a great buy.”

“iStorage’s diskAshur2 fills a growing niche in the industry for a portable data vault. There are tons of software solutions out there, but if you watch the news, there is precious little ‘unbreakable’ software that isn’t compromised in one form or another in its life cycle, and yes, I’m looking at you TrueCrypt…Performance wise, the diskAshur is right where you expect a portable hard drive to be. If you need more speed, they do offer an SSD based solution, the diskAshur2 SSD. With capacities up to 5TB, you can securely carry a spectacular amount of data with you.”

“Ideal for users looking for an easy to use secure solution for storing all their data, elegantly designed and available in 4 striking colours (Phantom Black, Ocean Blue, Fiery Red and Racing Green) meaning there’s plenty of technological features to get to grips with. Plus with the HDD available in capacity options from 500GB to 5TB, there will be plenty of space for all the family.”

“The security features are impressive, and really go above and beyond. You may be thinking to yourself, “I don’t need that much security”. But the sad fact is that in today’s world, you have to really guard your data. Everything we do is digitized now, from tax returns to bank account data, and hackers can and do compromise sensitive data all the time. I’ve become a big fan of iStorage and I’m really impressed with the company and the quality of their products. So if you’re looking for an awesome gift for Dad this Father’s Day, I highly recommend the diskAshur2!”

“iStorage’s diskAshur PRO² boasts unbreakable enterprise-level data security certified by NATO, General Intelligence & Security Service and CESG…iStorage is a pretty well-known name in the encrypted storage market – they were the first company on earth to get a portable encrypted storage solution on the market with their diskAshur Pro series (which also has certifications by NATO and other major organizations)…”
“The ask for this 512GB SSD is a step $271 right now but considering the certifications and features involved – it will be a bargain for the right target market..”
“The performance of the diskAshur PRO² was very impressive…Transfer rates are also sustained throughout transfers which means you won’t get a faster speed at the start which degrades over time – this performance will sustain itself throughout the SSD’s life.”
“The iStorage diskAshur PRO2 is expensive and is clearly not an SSD you buy if you are out on a budget but is for the professional that does not want to sacrifice the slightest bit of security. Every aspect of the design – from encryption fallbacks to physical ruggedness are a showcase of how much thought went into its development. Coming from the company that brought us the world’s first portable encrypted storage (DiskAshur Pro) this is hardly surprising and makes this the perfect drive to buy for the security professional.”

“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. “

“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.”

The amount of effort that has gone into designing it to prevent the data from leaking into the wrong hands certainly has a potential market, and it is probably one of the most user-friendly ways for Mac users to securely use a portable drive with others in a protected and encrypted manner.”

“The build quality is excellent…as an external drive, the diskAshur² performs well. It’s not much bigger than a regular drive and its competitive specs-wise.
