Delivering all of the same next level security features as Aegis line of secure drives, in an extremely rugged enclosure, and with ultra-fast encryption chipset, the L3 is the fast, robust, high capacity drive. Tough on the outside, the Fortress L3 is designed to meet NIST's high level of FIPS validation attainable for portable devices. Small enough to go in a pocket or briefcase, large enough to carry a lot of data, the Fortress L3 allows you to securely and easily carry large amounts of sensitive data everywhere you go. All data is encrypted on the fly and all PINs and data remain encrypted while the drive is at rest. Completely cross-platform compatible and OS agnostic. It also thrives where software-authenticated encrypted devices can't function, such as embedded systems and equipment in possession of a powered USB port and storage file system but no keyboard.
