Product Description



iStorage diskAshur Portable Encrypted USB 3.0 Hard Drive with ultra-secure PIN Access

Looking for an effortless way to secure your data while taking advantage of lightning fast USB 3.0 speeds? Look no further than the iStorage diskAshur 3.0, the latest addition to the iStorage family of ultra-secure, easy to use and affordable products. With the same easy-to-use keypad design and software free setup, the iStorage diskAshur 3.0 enables you to access the drive with your own unique pin but now at data transfer speeds of up to 10X faster than USB 2.

Utilises Military Grade FIPS PUB 197 Validated Encryption Algorithm

Featuring your choice of AES-XTS 128 or 256-bit hardware encryption, the IStorage diskAshur 3.0 seamlessly encrypts all data on the drive in real-time, keeping your data safe even if the hard drive is removed from its enclosure.

Super-fast USB 3.0 Connection – 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 IStorage diskAshur 3.0 is also backwards compatible with USB 2.0 and 1.1 ports.

Software Free Design – With no admin rights to contend with the IStorage diskAshur is a breeze to implement

With no software installation required for setup or operation and the ability to run on any platform, the IStorage diskAshur 3.0 provides stress free deployment in corporate environments. The IStorage diskAshur can be configured with independent Admin and User PINs. The Administrator Feature allows enrolment of up to five unique User ID’s and one Administrator. If the User forgets their PIN, the drive can be unlocked using the Admin PIN.

Self-Destruct Password

The diskAshur has the ability to set a password that will reset the encryption key if needed. By resetting the encryption key all data on the drive will be lost and cannot be recovered.

Drive Reset Feature

The IStorage diskAshur 3.0 also employs a useful drive reset feature, which can be implemented with a unique command. This clears all PINs and data, and creates a new randomly generated encryption key, enabling the drive to be reset and redeployed as many times as needed.

Auto-lock Feature

The unattended IStorage diskAshur 3.0 can be configured to lock after a pre-determined amount of time of your choosing. Ideal for protecting your data when you’re away from your desk.

Data at Rest Protection

All data, PINs, and encryption keys are always encrypted while at rest.

Brute Force Self Destruct Feature

The IStorage diskAshur uses a three pronged approach to protect against a Brute Force attack. The first step is to deny access to the drive until the drive can verify the user PIN. After several incorrect attempts the drive will lock itself, requiring the drive to be plugged in again to input a PIN. This feature blocks automated attempts to enter PIN numbers. Lastly, after a predetermined number of failed PIN entries, the DiskAshur assumes it is being attacked and will destroy the encryption key and lock itself, rendering the data useless and requiring a total reset to redeploy the DiskAshur.

Wear Resistant Key Pad

Designed with protection in mind, the entire IStorage diskAshur family incorporates ‘wear resistant’ keypads to hide key usage and avoid tipping off a potential hacker to the commonly used keys.

VTC Technology

Protection against hacker attempts doesn’t stop with Brute Force. Incorporated into the IStorage diskAshur’s electronics is Apricorn’s Variable Time Circuit (VTC) technology, working to thwart “timing attacks” aimed at accessing the drive by studying the behaviour and infiltrating the DiskAshur’s electronics.

Compact, Rugged Design – Perfect for taking your data on the road

The IStorage diskAshur’s low powered design is perfect for using with notebooks and taking your data on the road. Perfectly pocket-able, the IStorage diskAshur’s compact, robust design features a 16-point omni-directional shock mounting system and rubberized paint, protecting 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.

This is the second device that I have bought. I use them so that I can securely backup files and store them away from home. I've found the devices quite straight forward to use and they worked straight out of the box. In my case this was Vista Business and Windows 7 Ultimate. The touch pad is easy to use and each button makes a single positive click, so no mis-entering of passwords.

There are quite a few features that make this device very positive in my eyes. These include:
- use industry standard AES 256 encryption
- cannot be brute forced as they will destroy the encryption key and be irrecoverable after a number of failed attempts
- take passwords up to 16 digits long
- fast transfer rates (USB3.0)
- 3 year warranty
- twice for different problems I have needed to contact iStorage, and on each occasion they could not have been more helpful/supportive and fast

This is a very well made portable drive. It feels solid and secure, not cheaply made or plasticky as some do. The basic instructions that come with it are sufficient enough to get you started, but it's advisable to read through the PDF that is included on the drive. The customisable functions are very useful tools as well, and aren't difficult to program as long as you either print off the PDF or copy it to your PC to keep up on the screen to follow carefully. In all, a very good product. Only time will tell if the actual hard drive inside will last as long as it should.

Style Name: Encryption : 128-bitSize: Capacity : 500GB Verified Purchase
After a month of use I am fairly pleased with this. I use it to run my portable software on multiple PC's and it does the job. Only thing you need to be aware of is to disable any sleep or hibernation features on the host computer. If you don't it loses connection and crashes the drive and you have to use CHKDSK to correct bad sectors etc. There seems to be no way to circumvent this which is a shame. But overall, very pleased with this purchase so far.

Great if shared between trusted computers. PCs, Macs or Unix, no Admin rights needed. Brilliant - and safe, even if you lose it.

But, once you key in the PIN, it is just a normal drive. So don't plug it into a public or untrusted computer if you value your data.

Treated with utmost respect for 3 months AND THEN after 3 months suddenly REFUSED to accept the PIN I strongly believe was the correct PIN. Tried multiple combinations but in vain. All Date lost with no backup. ask Amazon for the replacement BUT Amazon delivery was no more faithful than the faulty disk. Seems like that their both replacement has been lost by their "Amazon Logistics". Sadly Amazon policy is not to send the 3rd replacement. Very disappointed but have not choice. Amazon would like to refund instead. Meantime I am thinking to buy some other brand which would save me about £100. i-storage would like me to keep a backup which is a sensible option. I have to spend the same amount of money twice because I would like to have a PIN protected backup. Too expensive option. Furthermore Amazon themselves may try to rethink their policy regarding compensation, if it's not trouble ofcourse. For example they can offer gift voucher to customers who have unpleasant experience. I have wasted my time , nearly £5 on phone calls to them (I don't have a land-line), still waiting for a refund and the replacement disc. Fingers crossed. Peace to All. Thankyou.
