Designed for those that demand the highest level of protection for their data, the Aegis Bio 3.0 fuses leading edge technology in biometric authentication and encryption with a rugged, super fast USB 3.0 drive to produce a truly remarkable drive.
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 5 Gbps you can now access your data up to 10 X faster than USB 2.0.
- Access the drive with a swipe of your finger
- Real-time 256-bit AES-XTS hardware encryption
- No software required to setup or access data
- No admin rights needed
- Integrated USB 3.0 cable
- Supports 5 unique fingerprints
- Simple setup - complete in a few minutes
- Utilizes military grade FIPS PUB 197 validated encryption algorithm
Real-time 256-bit AES-XTS encryption seamlessly encrypts all data on the drive, protecting the drive even if it is removed from it's casing.
- Biometric fingerprint access
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 fingerprint sensor uses an Advanced live layer imaging technology to provide the most accurate fingerprint image possible, using a patented dual-plate active pixel design, superior to competitors that use only a single passive pixel design. The sensor uses three different sensing methods that penetrate outer layers of skin to read live layers under the skin, meeting the stringent image quality requirements of NIST and the FBI, something that no other silicon fingerprint sensor has achieved.
- Never forget your passwords again
Replacing passwords with fingerprint biometrics improves security since passwords can be lost or stolen, and users enjoy freedom from memorizing passwords.
- Data transfer speeds up to 10X faster than USB 2.0
With a super speed USB 3.0 interface, you can now access your files faster than ever before. The Aegis Bio 3.0 is also backwards compatible with USB 2.0 and 1.1 ports.
- Compact, rugged design
The Aegis Bio's bus powered design is perfect for using with notebooks and taking your data on the road. Perfectly pocketable, the Aegis Bio's compact, robust design protects the drive from drops and knocks. The convenient integrated USB 3.0 cable eliminates the need to carry around cords with you and allows you to be connected at the flick of a fingertip.
