Apricorn Announces Aegis Padlock Secure Hard Drive

Apricorn-Aegis-PadlockApricorn, an innovative provider of secure mobile storage, today released the Aegis Padlock Secure Hard Drive, a portable hardware encrypted drive and secure storage system. With an easy-to-use keypad and software-free design, the Aegis Padlock offers customers immediate secure access to the drive using a customized personal identification number. Offering a choice of AES-128 or 256 bit hardware encryption, the Aegis Padlock provides seamless real-time encryption to keep data secure even if the hard drive is removed from its enclosure.
