Kingston Digital Announces XTS-AES Encrypted USB Drive with Automatic USBtoCloud Back Up

  • Brute Force and BadUSB Attack Protection with XTS-AES Encryption 
  • Multi-Password Option with Complex/Passphrase Modes 
  • Automatic Personal Cloud Backup 


Sunbury-on-Thames, UK – July 5th, 2022 –
Kingston Digital Europe Co LLP, a flash memory affiliate of Kingston Technology Company, Inc., a world leader in memory products and technology solutions, today announced the release of IronKey™ Locker+ 50 (LP50) USB Flash drive that provides consumer-grade security with AES hardware-encryption in XTS mode to safeguard against BadUSB with digitally-signed firmware and Brute Force password attacks. 

Kingston IronKey Locker+ 50 offers multi-password, Admin and User, option with Complex or Passphrase modes. Complex mode allows for passwords from 6-16 characters using 3 out of 4 character sets, while new passphrase mode allows for a numeric PIN, sentence, or even a list of words from 10 to 64 characters long; along with support for international characters. To reduce failed login attempts during password entry, the “eye” symbol can be enabled to reveal what has been typed. But should a User password be forgotten; the Admin password can be used to access the data on the drive or reset the User password. 

LP50 is designed for convenience with its small metal casing and built-in key loop, along with the optional feature of USBtoCloud (by ClevX®), users can take and access their data anywhere. LP50 is easy for anyone to setup whether you use Google Drive™, OneDrive (Microsoft®), Amazon Cloud Drive, Dropbox™ or Box for your personal cloud storage. Plus, all the software and security needed is already on the drive so no application installation required, and it works on both Windows® and macOS® so users can work from multiple systems. 

“We are excited to offer another great option for those looking to store their sensitive personal or business data with our IronKey Locker+ 50,” said Oscar Escayola Kaloudis, EMEA Flash Business Manager, Kingston. “LP50 has our most requested feature, dual passwords, along with a new Passphrase mode that will allow users to pick a password that is easier to remember.” 

Kingston IronKey Locker+ 50 is available in capacities from 16GB – 128GB and is backed by a limited five-year warranty, free technical support and legendary Kingston reliability.
