diskAshur-M2

Introducing the diskashur m2

The diskAshur M² PIN authenticated, hardware encrypted SSD has a new, ultra-portable, rugged and sleek design, incorporating the most advanced security attributes that iStorage is renowned for.

The diskAshur M² encrypts data using FIPS PUB 197 validated, AES-XTS 256-bit hardware encryption and incorporates a Common Criteria EAL 5+ (Hardware Certified) secure microprocessor, which employs built-in physical protection mechanisms designed to defend against external tamper, bypass physical attacks and more.

The drive features ultra-fast backwards compatible USB 3.2 Gen 1 data transfer speeds and is available in capacities ranging from 120GB to 2TB. The diskAshur M² is lightweight, dust and waterproof (IP68 certified), shock proof (survives a drop of 4m on to a concrete surface) and crush-proof (withstands the weight of a 2.7 ton vehicle), making it extremely rugged and ultra-portable.

UNRIVALLED DATA SECURITY

Your data is secured with FIPS 140-3 Level 3 compliant making it tamper proof. Data stored on the diskAshur M² is encrypted using FIPS PUB 197 validated, AES-XTS 256-bit hardware encryption.

The DIskAshur M2 incorporates a Common Criteria EAL 5+ (Hardware Certified) secure microprocessor which enhances security through true random number generation and built-in cryptography, offering ultimate security against hackers, detecting and responding to tampering

 

All components incorporated within the diskAshur M² are completely covered by a layer of super tough epoxy resin, which is virtually impossible to remove without causing permanent damage to the components. The drive is also designed to be tamper evident making it obvious to the User if it has been pried open and tampered with.

 

Independent User & Admin PINs make it perfect for corporate and government deployment. If the User forgets their PIN, the drive can be unlocked using the Admin PIN. The Administrator can then allow the User to set a new User PIN.

 

The DiskAshur M2 has brute force hack defence mechanisms. If the User PIN is entered incorrectly 10 consecutive times, the User PIN will be deleted and the drive can only be accessed by entering the Admin PIN or One-time User recovery PIN. (Admin can change this from the default 10 incorrect PIN entries, to 1-9, for the User only). If the Admin PIN is entered incorrectly 10 consecutive times, all data, PINs and the encrypted encryption key will be lost forever.

simplicity meets ruggedness

Simply enter a 7-15 digit PIN to authenticate and use as a normal portable SSD. When the drive is disconnected, all data is encrypted using AES-XTS 256-bit hardware encryption (no software required).

The onboard keypad is covered with a layer of polymer coating that protects the keys and hides key usage to avoid tipping off a potential hacker to commonly used keys.

The diskAshur M² is extremely rugged, surviving a drop of up to 4m onto a concrete surface. The drive is also crushproof, withstands the weight of a 2.7 ton vehicle.

The drive’s IP68 accreditation means it will survive being submerged under 1.5m of water for 30 minutes and deemed fit enough to withstand dust, dirt and sand.

tiny, mighty, lightning fast

Coming in at a tiny weight of 65g without the sleeve fitted and 86g with sleeve fitted, the DiskAshur M2 is the worlds most portable secure SSD. The dimensions are smaller than the size of any phone, making it ultra-portable, slim and sleek.

 

Transfer your files in seconds with lightning fast backwards compatible USB 3.2 Gen 1 data transfer speeds. With a blistering fast 370MB/s read and write speeds with the DiskAshur M2, say goodbye to slow and annoying data storage forever.

easy use and configuration

An admin configurable one-time User recovery PIN enables you to unlock the device and set a new User PIN in the event that you forgot the PIN.

The DiskAshur M2 has Read only mode (write protect). Both the Admin and User can configure the diskAshur M² as a read only (write protect) drive. If configured by the Admin, the drive cannot be modified or disabled by the User, allowing the Admin to pre-provision a drive with pre-loaded content as read-only for the User.

The DiskAshur M2 is Operating System & Host independent, making it plug and play. No software required; the drive will work on any device with a USB port. USB Type C and Type A connectivity (included)

Compatible with: MS Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, Chrome, Thin Clients, Zero Clients, Embedded Systems, Citrix and VMware

The DiskAshur M2 is also a Bootable drive. Install an OS on the diskAshur M2 and boot directly from it.
