Kingston Digital Adds Lower 4GB and 8GB Capacities to DataTraveler 2000 Encrypted USB with Alphanumeric Keypad Access
  • Lower Capacities Helps with Enterprise Security by Limiting the Amount of Data that can be Transported Outside of Network Firewalls
  • Hardware-Based, Full Disk AES 256-Bit Data Encryption in XTS Mode
  • New Capacities Join Company’s Other DataTraveler and IronKey USB Flash Drives

Kingston Digital Europe Co LLP, an affiliate of Kingston Technology Company Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, has added 4GB and 8GB capacity sizes to its family of DataTraveler 2000® encrypted USB Flash drives. The smaller capacities join the existing 16GB, 32GB and 64GB models, and are all FIPS-197 certified. All DataTraveler 2000 drives offer 256-bit AES hardware-based encryption and PIN protection with access through an onboard alphanumeric keypad.

DataTraveler 2000 drives are designed for global security IT professionals, small-to-medium businesses and corporate end users who require data protection in a USB. As the drives are OS independent (compatible with any device with a USB 2.0 or USB 3.1 Gen 1 port), they are easily deployable in work environments where multiple devices and operating systems are in use. Each drive is protected with 256-bit AES hardware-based encryption and no software or hardware drivers are needed.

“Lower capacity drives limit the amount of data that can be copied off a network, making it more difficult for large amounts of sensitive data to be transferred to unauthorised parties” said Valentina Vitolo, Flash Business Manager, Kingston®. “Since most data leaks are the result of employees or others who have authorised access to an organisation’s network, the less data that can be copied, the less that can be leaked.”

DataTraveler 2000 features an alphanumeric keypad which allows users to lock the drive with a word or number combination for easy-to-use PIN protection. A full-drive reset (whereby the existing data is deleted and a new password is required) occurs after 10 invalid login attempts to lessen a brute force intrusion. For additional security, an auto-lock feature is activated when the drive is removed from the host device if not properly shut down before ejection.
