Learn how to encrypt your files using the diskAshur2
The diskAshur² USB 3.2 HDD/SSD is a PIN-authenticated, AES-XTS 256-bit hardware encrypted portable drive that securely encrypts, stores and protects data to military standards.
The diskAshur² allows you to safeguard valuable and sensitive data to ensure compliance with stringent data protection and confidentiality regulations and directives, such as GDPR, HIPAA, SOX, CCPA and more.
Simply enter a 7-15 digit PIN to authenticate and use as a normal portable HDD/SSD.
When the drive is disconnected, all data is encrypted using AES-XTS 256-bit hardware encryption (no software required).
All data stored on the diskAshur² is encrypted using FIPS PUB 197 validated, AES-XTS 256-bit hardware encryption. All components incorporated within the diskAshur² are completely covered by a layer of super tough epoxy resin, which is virtually impossible to remove without causing permanent damage to the components.
The onboard keypad is covered with a layer of polymer coating that protects the keys and hides key usage to avoid tipping off a potential hacker to commonly used keys.
Which enhances security through true random number generation and built-in cryptography. The data encryption key is protected by FIPS and Common Criteria validated wrapping algorithms.
Offers ultimate security against hackers, detecting and responding to tampering with features such as:
⋅ Dedicated hardware for protection against SPA/DPA/SEMA, DEMA attacks
· Advanced protection against physical attacks, including Active Shield, Enhance Protection Object, CStack checker, Slope Detector and Parity Errors
· Environmental Protection Systems protecting against voltage monitor, frequency monitor, temperature monitor and light protection
· Secure Memory Management/Access Protection
The diskAshur2 has been certified to IP56, meaning the drive is dust and waterproof.
Which makes it perfect for corporate and government deployment. If the User forgets their PIN, the drive can be unlocked using the Admin PIN. The Administrator can then allow the User to set a new User PIN.
Both the Admin and User can configure the diskAshur² as a read only (write protect) drive. If configured by the Admin, the drive cannot be modified or disabled by the User, allowing the Admin to pre-provision a drive with pre-loaded content as read-only for the User.
Lightning fast backwards compatible USB 3.2 data transfer speeds.
No software required; the drive will work on any device with a USB port.
Compatible with: MS Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, Chrome, Thin Clients, Zero Clients, Embedded Systems, Citrix and VMware
The drive will freeze, requiring the drive to be disconnected and reconnected to the USB port to get a further five PIN entry attempts.
If the following five (10 in total) consecutive PIN attempts are entered incorrectly again, the diskAshur2 will freeze again. To get a further and final five PIN attempts (15 in total), the “shift” button must be pressed whilst inserting the USB cable to the USB port and then an iStorage preset PIN will need to be entered.
On the fifteenth consecutive incorrect PIN entry, the diskAshur2 assumes it is being attacked and will delete the encryption key and lock itself, rendering all data previously stored on the drive as lost forever. At this point the drive can be reset to factory default settings and redeployed.

Automatically locks when unplugged from the host computer or when power to the USB port is turned off. It can also be set to automatically lock after a predetermined amount of time.
Pre-program the diskAshur² with a self-destruct PIN, once entered, the data, encrypted encryption key and all PINs are deleted and rendered as lost forever.
Deletes the encrypted encryption key, all PINs and renders all data as lost forever. The drive can then be redeployed which randomly generates a new encrypted encryption key, a process that can be repeated as many times as required.
Configured with a unique VID/PID and internal/external serial number with barcode, allowing easy integration into standard end-point management software (white-listing), to meet internal corporate requirements.
