500GB-2TB drive: Height: 124mm; Width: 84mm; Depth: 19mm
3TB-5TB drive: Height: 124mm; Width: 84mm; Depth: 27mm

FIPS PUB 197 validated encryption algorithm

Employing AES-XTS 256-bit full disk hardware encryption, the diskAshur2 seamlessly encrypts all data on the drive
whilst at rest, keeping your data safe even if the hard drive is removed from its enclosure.

EDGE Technology

(Enhanced Dual Generating Encryption)
Uniquely featuring a dedicated on-board
secure microprocessor (Common Criteria EAL4+ ready) to enhance security through true random number generation and built-in cryptography. The data encryption key is protected by FIPS and Common Criteria validated wrapping algorithms.

Tamper proof design

All the components of the diskAshur2 are completely covered by a layer of super tough epoxy resin, which is virtually impossible to remove without causing permanent damage to the components.

Independent user & admin PIN

Which makes 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 PIN.

OS & platform independent

No software required. Works on any device with a USB port!

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



Intelligently programmed to protect against all forms of brute force attacks.

Incorrect PIN entry

After 5 attempts the drive will freeze, requiring the drive to be disconnected and reconnected to the USB port to get a further five PIN entry attempts. If the following five (10 in total) consecutive PIN attempts are entered incorrectly again, the diskAshur2 will freeze again. To get a further and final five PIN attempts (15 in total), the “shift” button must be pressed whilst inserting the USB cable to the USB port and then an iStorage preset PIN will need to be entered. On the fifteenth consecutive incorrect PIN entry, the diskAshur2 assumes it is being attacked and will delete the encryption key and lock itself, rendering all data previously stored on the drive as lost forever. At this point the drive can be reset to factory default settings and redeployed.

Self-destruct feature

You can pre-program the diskAshur2 with your own unique self-destruct PIN, which once implemented, instantly deletes the encryption key, all PINs, data and then creates a new encryption key.

Auto lock

The diskAshur2 automatically locks when unplugged from the host computer or power to the USB port is turned off and can also be set to automatically lock after a predetermined amount of time.

Data at rest protection

All data and encryption keys are always encrypted whilst at rest.

Wear resistant epoxy coated keypad

Designed with protection in mind, the diskAshur2 wear resistant epoxy coated keypad hides key usage to avoid tipping off a potential hacker to commonly used keys.
