Apricorn, the industry’s top producer of software-free, 256-bit AES XTS hardware-encrypted USB drives launched the USB 3.2 Gen 1 Aegis Secure Key 3 2TB encrypted flash key.  The new 2TB Aegis Secure Key 3 is the first hardware-encrypted flash key of this size and was created for businesses that need a lot of secured storage with a small footprint, continuing Apricorn’s long history of innovation. The Aegis Secure Key 3 currently offers eight capacity options, with prices ranging from $129.00 to $999.00 U.S.  

Kurt Markley, U.S. Managing Director, Apricorn said, “The Aegis Secure Key 3 line was designed to address security issues we identified in 2015 and that still plague organizations today. Most of those feature improvements have become standard in the market, including Forced Enrollment™, which we developed to force users to create their own PIN before they could use the device at all. We’ve consistently increased storage capacities for the Secure Key 3, which employs a mini SSD rather than flash memory, making the line bigger and faster than other hardware-encrypted flash keys. When it comes to tech – especially hardware – it’s rare for a product to remain at the top of its field for more than five years, much less seven. The Aegis Secure Key 3 has become Apricorn’s U2 spy plane.” 

The Aegis Secure Key 3 includes AegisWareTM as standard equipment, Apricorn’s proprietary firmware and feature set that was created to address the constantly changing security threats and commercial requirements for highly regulated industries like government, defense, finance, manufacturing, and healthcare.
