Kingston’s UV500 family of encrypted solid-state drives dramatically improves the responsiveness of your existing system or client upgrades with incredible boot, loading, and transfer times compared to mechanical hard drives.

Powerful
Powered by a Marvell 88SS1074 controller combined with Next Gen 64-layer 3D TLC NAND Flash for read and write speeds up to 520MB/s and 500MB/s{{Footnote.N49046}}, this SSD is 10X faster than a traditional hard drive for better performance, ultra-responsive multi-tasking, and an overall faster system. It is also cooler, quieter, and its shock and vibration resistance makes it ideal for notebooks, small form factor PCs, and other mobile computing devices.

Encrypted SSD
UV500 provides end-to-end data protection using the advanced 256-bit AES Hardware-based encryption and support for Trusted Computing Group (TCG) Opal 2.0 as required by security platforms. Enables the advantage of drive encryption and Data Loss Prevention (DLP) software programs to activate and manage TCG Opal, such as Symantec, McAfee, WinMagic and others. Serves as an important element to security policies when complying with industry standards and global regulations, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR){{Footnote.A50518}}.

System Solution
Available in multiple capacities from 120GB–1.92TB{{Footnote.N37130}} provides efficient client upgrades, Windows 10 migrations, and advantages for system builders to extend the life of systems. Accelerate as a boot drive, multitasking workloads, or hosting your most frequently used applications.
SSDs in a Business Environment

Notebook and desktop PC memory

Notebook and desktop PC use

Kingston solid-state drives will make your system boot quicker, load applications faster and shut down faster. They are ideal for notebook and desktop use to increase the performance of common office and multimedia applications.

Extending the life of older systems

Extending the life of older desktop and notebook computers

Kingston SSDs will not only increase performance and make data more secure but they can also be used to extend the life of older systems and enable an organisation to delay a PC refresh and potentially save thousands of pounds.

Multimedia

Multimedia

If you work with large images or video files, you know that these files and the applications that use them are very dependent on your drive’s storage performance. Whether you are applying layers and effects to an image or editing HD video content, an SSD can deliver more data faster than a traditional hard drive.
