iStorage introduces diskAshur DT

The terminator of the hard drive world

iStorage has launched the diskAshur DT, a 3.5-inch military grade portable hard drive.

The firm said the diskAshur DT is the world’s first portable 3.5” hard drive with military grade hardware encryption and PIN code access. It also has USB 3.0 connectivity and comes in a capacity of up to three 3TB.

John Michael, managing director of iStorage said, “Data security remains of paramount importance for organisations and individuals, especially in light of the ICO’s powers to fine those guilty of serious Data Protection Act breaches. diskAshur DT’s integrated digital and physical security functionality including real time AES 256-bit hardware encryption, 6-16 digit PIN access, on-board keypad and brute force hack defence mechanisms, deliver peace of mind for those looking for an ultra-secure mass storage solution.”

To keep the stored data secure the iStorage diskAshur DT uses military grade AES 256-bit hardware encryption along with a ‘wear-resistant’ keypad with 6 to 16 digit PIN code activation. The hard drive is housed in a strong aluminium case.

Furthermore, the diskAshur DT has a Mission Impossible –style self-destruct mechanism to protect the device against brute force attacks. This is aided by tamper-resistant epoxy-coated circuitry.

Other security features include Variable Time Circuit to protect against timed attacks and auto-lock to shut the drive down if unattended for too long.

The iStorage diskAshur DT is available in three capacities of 1TB, 2TB and 3TB priced at £214, £238 and £334, respectively. It is compatible with Windows, Mac OS X and Linux operating system without the need for drivers.
