Apricorn Aegis Vault

Apricorn recently unveiled the Aegis Vault - a 2.5-inch drive protected with 128-bit AES hardware encryption - adding to its large lineup of Aegis portable media drives. The USB-powered drive features an encrypted partition that can be accessed through a password, and can be configured with public partitions for use in a shared environment. The Aegis Vault does not require the host computer to have special software installed to authenticate the drive, allowing any Windows-based computer to access the content in the encrypted partition when the correct password is entered. Pricing for the Aegis Vault starts at $170 for the 80GB version, with drive sizes available up to 250GB.

As with Apricorn's other Aegis drives, the Vault is designed to be durable, featuring a 16-point omni-directional shock mounting, and comes with the company's typical integrated USB cable. Apricorn is selling the 120GB drive for $200, the 160GB model for $230, and the 250GB model for $300, and currently has a $35 rebate on the 120GB Aegis Vault.
