When security matters, trust your data to the Aegis Bio 3.0
Designed for those that demand the highest level of protection for their data, the Aegis Bio 3.0 fuses leading edge technology in biometric authentication and encryption with a rugged, super fast USB 3.0 drive to produce a truly remarkable drive.

Aegis Bio 3.0
The Aegis Bio 3.0 is a biometrically secure USB 3.0 portable hard drive with real-time AES-XTS 256-bit hardware encryption. With secure fingerprint access you can unlock the drive with just the swipe of your finger. The Bio’s software free design works on any operating system, including PC, Mac or Linux. And with USB 3.0 data transfer speeds of up to 5Gbps you can now access your data up to 10 X faster than USB 2.0

Utilizes Military Grade FIPS PUB 197 Validated Encryption Algorithm
Real-time 256-bit AES-XTS encryption seamlessly encrypts all data on the drive, protecting the drive even if it is removed from it’s casing.

Biometric Fingerprint Access
Once registered, just swipe your finger on the sensor for access to your files. Up to five fingerprint profiles can be stored and can be accessed without software on the host system.

The Aegis Bio’s unique Embedded Enrollment keeps all fingerprint enrollment and authentication within the Aegis Bio circuitry, independent of the host system. While other biometric drives use a CD emulation module or software on the host system for fingerprint enrollment, the Aegis Bio requires no software, enabling it to be used on any USB host regardless of OS.

The fingerprint sensor uses an Advanced live layer imaging technology to provide the most accurate fingerprint image possible, using a patented dual-plate active pixel design, superior to competitors that use only a single passive pixel design. The sensor uses three different sensing methods that penetrate outer layers of skin to read live layers under the skin (Anti-spoofing protection), meeting the stringent image quality requirements of NIST and the FBI, something that no other silicon fingerprint sensor has achieved.

Never forget your passwords again
Replacing passwords with fingerprint biometrics improves security since passwords can be lost or stolen, and users enjoy freedom from memorizing passwords.

Software Free Design – With no admin rights to contend with the Aegis Bio is a breeze to implement
With no software installation required for setup or operation and the ability to run on any platform, the Aegis Bio 3.0 provides stress free deployment in corporate environments. Users are able to use the Aegis Bio on any USB host making it ideal for those that use multiple devices and platforms.

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 Aegis Bio 3.0 is also backwards compatible with USB 2.0 and 1.1 ports.

Cross Platform Compatible
Due to its software free design, the Aegis Bio will work on any operating system, PC, Mac or Linux

Compact, Rugged Design – Perfect for taking your data on the road
The Aegis Bio’s bus powered design is perfect for using with notebooks and taking your data on the road. Perfectly pocketable, the Aegis Bio’s compact, robust design protects 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.
