It was back in November when we linked to a review of iStorage's secure portable HDD, which offers serious data protection for those who have 14TB of data to cart around.  Recently they launched a similar product, for those who don't have the time to sit and watch rust spin.  The diskAshur Pro2 replaces the 12TB HDD with an SSD between 128GB and in 4TB in size, or a HDD between 500GB and 5TB if you need to trim your costs a bit. 

The Pro2 model offers all of the security and protective features of the DT2 HDD model; sadly the self-destruct mechanism does not include actual destructionDrop by OCC to see if it lives up to it's advertised speed.

"Well, iStorage has something that can keep your data secure. How secure? How about Real-Time Military Grade AES-XTS 256-bit Full-Disk Hardware Encryption secure? Okay, maybe not everyone needs that level of security, but if you do, then the iStorage diskAsure Pro2 can do the job."

Not everyone needs the speed a portable SSD offers, however at $870 US the diskAshur DT2  is still a fairly large investment.  The cost is split between the Seagate IronWolf HDD and the case itself, which is fairly impressive.  The drive can be encrypted with AES-XTS 256 requiring a PIN be entered onto the numpad on the front, and supports multiple PINs so the drive can be shared with multiple users.  Inside the enclosure is a Common Criteria EAL4+ processor which offers protection against a wide variety of attacks if you happen to lose the drive and some unscrupulous person gets their hands on it.  Not only is it secure, it is the fastest external HDD Nikktech have tested.  

Drop by to take a look at a handy way to securely store a large amount of data.
