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.

In designing the Aegis Padlock, Apricorn had three goals in mind: security, simplicity and affordability. With a one page Quick Start Guide and software-free setup, the Aegis Padlock enables you to be up and running with your own unique PIN in minutes. The Aegis Padlock’s pricing is competitive with many standard USB portable drives. Therefore, the premium for secure, real-time, hardware encrypted storage solutions is less of an issue and affordable for most consumers.
