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.
"Combining state of the art security measures with the highest available storage capacities the diskAshur DT2 Desktop Hard Drive by iStorage is the one stop to safeguarding all your sensitive data."
