The Aegis Bio 3.0 fuses leading edge technology in biometric authentication with on-the-fly AES-XTS 256-bit hardware encryption in a rugged, super fast USB 3.0 drive, making your data both ultra secure and readily available at the swipe of a finger. The Bio’s software free design thrives in any operating system, PC, Mac or Linux and also thrives where software-authenticated encrypted devices can't even function such as embedded systems, machinery, and any equipment in possession of a powered USB port and storage file system. And all of the Aegis Bio's internal componentry is protected from physical tampering with a layer of hardened epoxy, and the firmware is locked down which prevents any modifications, making it immune to malware attacks such as BadUSB.
For Apricorn encrypted drives with a DOM (Date of Manufacture, found on original packaging label under the UPC code) of September 2017 to the present date, refer to the manual with product’s name and the word “Configurable” in the title. If unsure of manufacture date, all Aegis Configurator compatible devices have the “Configurable ‘C’” logo on the back. For older non-configurator compatible secure drives, refer to the manual that doesn’t have “Configurable” in the title.
