Fountain Valley, CA—Kingston Digital, the flash memory affiliate of Kingston Technology Company, added 128GB capacity options to three of its encrypted USB flash drives. The Kingston DataTraveler 128GB (gigabyte) drives are part of a line of encrypted solutions to suit customer needs of all levels.
Consumers and organizations are more aware of data privacy and protection needs due to regulations such as GDPR and CCPA. Moreover, additional data security options are a necessity as work-from-home increases. The inclusion of encrypted USB flash drives into a daily workflow is a simple step to ensuring data is safe.
“Portable data security is becoming more and more important with the increase in people working from home. Kingston is glad to continue expanding our line of encrypted USB solutions to help users take control of their security needs,” said Richard Kanadjian, encrypted USB drive business manager, Kingston. “Within our full line of encrypted drives, we offer high levels of encryption and fast USB 3.0 performance. Furthermore, after 10 intrusion attempts, the drives lock down so users can rest assured their data is safe.”
Three Kingston DataTraveler 128GB Encrypted Drives
The DataTraveler Locker+ G3 (DTLPG3) drive secures personal data with hardware encryption as well as password protection. Thus, it provides a double layer of data security.
In addition, the DTLPG3 offers cloud backup as an optional feature. Subsequently, users can automatically back up data from their USB to Google Drive, OneDrive (Microsoft), Amazon Cloud Drive, Dropbox or Box. The feature gives added peace of mind as users can access data if the drive is not present.
What’s more, DataTraveler Locker+ G3 offers easy setup and use. No application installation is required; all the software and security needed are built in. The drive works on both Windows and Mac operating systems. As a result, users can access files from multiple devices, without installing a program on every computer used.
Secondly, Kingston’s DataTraveler Vault Privacy 3.0 (DTVP 3.0) USB drive provides business-grade security. It achieves 256-bit AES hardware-based encryption in XTS mode. It also features a read-only access mode to avoid potential malware risks.
DTVP 3.0 also permits organizations to customize drives to meet internal corporate IT requirements. Co-logo; serialization numbering; number of attempted password entries; minimum password length; and customized product identifiers for integration with standard end-point management software are all available.
Finally, DataTraveler 4000G2 (DT4000G2DM) is FIPS 140-2 Level 3-certified with 256-bit AES-XTS encryption. Co-logo; serialization numbering; number of attempted password entries; minimum password length; and customized product identifiers for integration with standard end-point management software are also available.
Furthermore, IT administrators can optionally centrally manage this drive to meet compliance requirements and provide a higher level of support using SafeConsole. The activation process enables IT professionals to remotely configure passwords and device policies, as well as activate audit for compliance.
DTLPG3 is available in capacities from 8GB to 128GB. DTVP 3.0 and DT4000G2DM both come in 4GB to 128GB versions. All are backed by a five-year warranty with free technical support.
