diskAshur M2 USB3 256-bit 500GB.

The smallest, lightest, fastest and most rugged FIPS compliant encrypted portable SSD.

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 uniquely incorporates a Common Criteria EAL4+ ready 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 data transfer speeds and is available in capacities ranging from 128GB to 2TB.

iStorage 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.

Easy to use

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).

DiskAshur M2 USB3 256-bit 500GB

Designed to be FIPS 140-3 Level 3, the diskAshur M2 encrypts data in transit and at rest using AES-XTS 256-bit full disk hardware encryption. The diskAshur M2 incorporates a Common Criteria EAL 5+ (Hardware Certified) secure microprocessor, which employs built-in physical protection mechanisms designed to defend against external tamper, bypass attacks and fault injections. Unlike other solutions, the diskAshur M2 reacts to an automated attack by entering the deadlock frozen state, which renders all such attacks as useless. In plain and simple terms, without the PIN there’s no way in! iStorage diskAshur M2 is supplied in the ‘Initial Shipment State’ with no pre-set Admin PIN. A 7-15 digit Admin PIN must be configured before the drive can be used. Once an Admin PIN has been successfully configured, it will then not be possible to switch the drive back to the ‘Initial Shipment State’.
