Apricorn today announced the Aegis Padlock Pro encrypted portable drives. Featuring a speedy eSATA and USB interface, on-the-fly 256-bit AES Hardware Encryption and secure PIN access, the Padlock Pro support data transfer speeds of up to 90 MB/s (using a traditional hard drive) and over 219 MB/s in its Solid State version. Available in capacities of up to 640GB, the Padlock Pro’s regular model is available with a shock-mounted hard drive.
“Not only do employees in healthcare, finance and government need to protect sensitive data in order to meet compliance regulations like HIPAA, SOX and PCI, but so do the telecommuters and business traveler in all industries,” said Mike McCandless, Apricorn’s VP Sales and Marketing. “The Aegis Padlock Pro gives users the ability to safely transport data and add more secure capacity to their systems while harnessing the speeds that eSATA provides.”
