Introducing the diskAshur PRO2

The diskAshur PRO² USB 3.2 Gen 1 HDD/SSD is a PIN-authenticated, FIPS certified, AES-XTS 256-bit hardware encrypted portable drive that securely encrypts, stores and protects data to military standards.

The diskAshur PRO² has been certified to the highest government accreditations (FIPS 140-2 Level 3, NCSC CPA, NLNCSA BSPA & NATO Restricted), helping you 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.

Easy to use

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).

FIPS 140-2 Level 2/3 certified, tamper proof & evident design

All data stored on the diskAshur PRO² is encrypted using FIPS PUB 197 validated, AES-XTS 256-bit hardware encryption. All components incorporated within the diskAshur PRO² 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 drive is also designed to be tamper evident making it obvious to the User if it has been pried open and tampered with.

Wear resistant keypad

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.

Incorporates a Common Criteria EAL 5+ (Hardware Certified) secure microprocessor

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

Splash and dustproof

The diskAshur PRO2 has been certified to IP56, meaning the drive is dust and waterproof.

Independent User & Admin PINs

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.

Read only (write protect) - Dual Mode

Both the Admin and User can configure the diskAshur PRO² 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.

Transfer your files in seconds

Lightning fast backwards compatible USB 3.2 Gen 1 data transfer speeds.

OS & Host independent - works across any host and embedded systems

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

Brute force hack defence mechanism

Intelligently programmed to protect against all forms of brute force attacks.

First 5 incorrect PIN entries

The drive will freeze, requiring the drive to be disconnected and reconnected to the USB port to get a further five PIN entry attempts.

Next 5 incorrect PIN entries

If the following five (10 in total) consecutive PIN attempts are entered incorrectly again, the diskAshur PRO2 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.

Last 5 incorrect PIN entries

On the fifteenth consecutive incorrect PIN entry, the diskAshur PRO2 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.
