Description

The iStorage diskG is the secure, compact and affordable USB 2.0 portable hard drive, employing PIN code access with 128-bit or 256-bit AES hardware encryption. The iStorage diskG utilizes military grade AES 128-bit or 256-bit hardware encryption, which encrypts ALL data stored on the drive in real time, making it as fast and in many cases faster than any non-encrypted USB 2.0 hard drive.

  • Brute force self destruct feature

    The iStorage diskG uses a three pronged approach to protect against a brute force attack. The first step is to deny access to the drive until the drive can verify the user PIN. This feature blocks automated attempts to enter PIN numbers. Lastly, after a predetermined number of failed PIN entries, the diskG assumes it is being attacked and will destroy the encryption key and lock itself, rendering the data useless and requiring a total reset to redeploy the diskG.
  • Variable Timing Circuit technology

    Protection against hacker attempts doesn't stop with brute force. Incorporated into the iStorage diskG's electronics is iStorage's Variable Time Circuit (VTC) technology, working to thwart "timing attacks" aimed at accessing the drive by studying the behavior and infiltrating the diskG's electronics.
  • Drive reset feature

    The diskG also employs a useful drive reset feature which can be implemented with a unique command. This clears all PINs and data, and creates a randomly generated encryption key, enabling the drive to be reset and redeployed as many times as needed.
  • Wear resistant key pad

    Designed with protection in mind, the entire iStorage diskG family incorporates "wear resistant" keypads to hide key usage avoid tipping off a potential hacker to the commonly used keys.
  • Compact, rugged design

    Perfect for taking your data on the road, the diskG's low powered design is perfect for using with notebooks and taking your data on the road. Perfectly pocketable, the diskG's compact, robust design features a 16-point omni-directional shock mounting systems and rubberized paint, protecting the drive from drops and knocks. The diskG has a convenient integrated USB 2.0 cable eliminating the need to carry around cables.
