New From Apricorn: Aegis Secure Key 3.0

The Aegis Secure Key 3.0 Clocks In Among the Fastest, Highest-Capacity Encrypted Flash Keys In Its Class with a USB 3.0 Interface and up to 240GB in Storage Capacity.

POWAY, Calif., -- Apricorn (, a leading manufacturer of secure, encrypted USB drives announced the release of the Aegis Secure Key 3.0. Building on the success of its predecessor (the Aegis Secure Key), the Secure Key 3.0 incorporates USB 3.0 connectivity for exponentially faster data speeds, up to double the storage capacities found on its nearest competitors, and separate admin and user mode access. Other new features include Lock-Override Mode, Read-Only Mode, Programmable Brute-Force Defense, and Forced Enrollment — all while incorporating the Apricorn hallmarks: on-the-fly 256-Bit encryption, onboard keypad, embedded authentication, and cross-platform compatibility. Roughly the size of a pack of gum, the Secure Key 3.0's software-free design and absolute host-independence makes it deployable in any OS environment where a powered USB port and storage file system exists.

"The initial response from our beta testers has been overwhelmingly positive," said Mike McCandless, VP of Sales and Marketing at Apricorn. "The speed, small size, large capacity, and new features such as Read-Only and Lock-Override modes make this our most exciting product launch in recent history."

At time of press, the validation process for FIPS 140-2 level 3 (the highest validation of government data security attainable for a removable storage device) was already underway, as was the testing for IP58 certification measuring physical resistance to blowing dust and extended water immersion. Test results for both certifications are expected in Q2, 2015.
