apricorn secure key 3nxApricorn, the leading manufacturer of software-free, 256-bit AES XTS hardware-encrypted USB data storage devices, today announced that FIPS 140-2 level 3 validation (certification #3703) has been awarded to the Aegis Secure Key 3NX by the National Institute of Standards and Technology. This level of certification serves to authorize a device's use in industries and institutions -- healthcare, finance, defense, and legal; both nationally and globally -- in compliance with stringent data security regulations such as HIPAA, FERPA, Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, and GDPR.

Originally released in late 2018, the Aegis Secure Key 3NX employs the latest Apricorn Secure Key encryption chipset while delivering cooler operating temperatures and a wider range of storage capacities than its predecessor, the Secure Key 3z.

The 3NX FIPS validation comes just one month behind the release of its sister product, the Secure Key 3NXC, which is the same device but replaces the traditional USB "A" connector with a USB 3.2 C-type connector; the first USB C encrypted flash key to market. "Initially, the 3NX was designed as a lower cost alternative to the FIPS validated Secure Key 3z," said Kurt Markley, Apricorn's Director of Sales. "While the NX has all of the same security features as all of our other devices, it addressed the following encrypted flash key market needs: cooler operating temperatures, a wider (lower) range of storage capacities to better optimize the spend on devices, and lower price points for large corporate deployments that don't require FIPS. As the NX began to catch on, requests from companies requiring FIPS validation compelled us to obtain FIPS 140-2 level 3 validation on this device as well."
