New 20TB drive from Apricorn
A 20TB portable encrypted drive has been launched by Apricorn (www.apricorn.com), the leading manufacturer of software-free, 256-bit AES XTS hardware-encrypted USB drives.
The new 20TB Aegis Fortress L3 (https://apricorn.com/aegis-fortress-l3) is the first of its size brought to market and features the NIST's highest level of FIPS validation attainable for portable devices – 140-2 level 3. The 20TB Aegis Fortress L3 was designed for large enterprises and regulated industries that deal with large amounts of data, including finance, government, power and energy, legal and healthcare. Its massive storage capacity is comparable to saving over 4,000 feature-length films/MPEG files.
“Our devices have never been simply about providing storage capabilities, but about enabling secure storage of huge amounts of data across multiple scenarios, and in a portable manner. These devices protect against business interruption, whether it be caused by natural disaster, malware/ransomware, third party risk or cloud breakdown,” says Jon Fielding, Managing Director, EMEA Apricorn.
“The 20TB Aegis Fortress L3’s mass storage capabilities enable fast response, restoration, and recovery in the event of a disaster, reducing downtime and minimizing financial and reputational damage. This is critical for businesses looking to build resilience at a time when ransomware attacks, in particular, are becoming an almost daily occurrence.”
Like every secure Apricorn device, the 20TB Aegis Fortress L3 includes AegisWare, Apricorn’s patent-protected firmware, and is OS agnostic and is compatible with any USB port and operating system including Windows®, Mac®, Linux, Android, as well as embedded systems and equipment in possession of a powered USB port and storage file system but have no keyboard and/or screen.
Small enough to go in a pocket or briefcase, the 20TB Aegis Fortress L3 is large enough to carry up to 20TB of data, empowering anyone to easily and securely carry large amounts of sensitive data anywhere.
