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.

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

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.
