DataLocker DL3 FE Encrypted External Hard Drive

The DL3 FE (FIPS Edition) sets a new standard for encrypted portable storage.  It is the first and only encrypted external hard drive to feature dual crypto processors. Your data undergoes two passes of 256 bit encryption, using two different independently generated random keys for unsurpassed security.


For management requirements an optional firmware update is available that allows DL3 to be managed by the SafeConsole management server.
