Kingston IronKey Vault Privacy 80 External SSD FIPS 197 Certified & XTS-AES 256-bit Encrypted

Kingston IronKey™ Vault Privacy 80 External SSD is Kingston’s first innovative OS-independent hardware-encrypted external SSD with touch screen for data protection. VP80ES safeguards against Brute Force attacks and BadUSB with digitally-signed firmware. Brute Force attack protection crypto-erases the drive if the Admin and User passwords are entered incorrectly 15 times1 in a row by default. The drive is FIPS 197 certified with XTS-AES 256-bit encryption using a Common Criteria EAL5+ (CC EAL5+) certified secure microprocessor, and is TAA compliant.

As innate as unlocking a smartphone and simple drag & drop file transfers, VP80ES is designed to protect data while being user-friendly. Featuring an intuitive color touch screen and multi-password (Admin and User) option with numeric PIN or passphrase modes, Vault Privacy 80ES is superior to using the internet and Cloud services to safeguard data.

Whether it’s important company information, client documents, or high-res images and videos, the drive is ideal for small-to-medium businesses (SMB) to content creators. It comes bundled with two USB 3.2 Gen 1 adapter cables, USB Type-C®2 to Type-A and Type-C to Type-C, to allow for easy connection to computers and other devices. VP80ES makes for the perfect companion when you need secured data and content out in the field or on-the-go to enable portable productivity and convenience all in the palm of your hand.

Admin can enable a User password and set up security options, such as configuring password requirements by setting the maximum number of shared attempts, minimum password length of 6-64 characters, and alphanumeric password rules. Additionally, you can utilize the ‘space’ character making it easier to remember a passphrase as a list of words, a memorable quote, or lyrics from a favorite song. Otherwise, use the PIN pad to unlock just as you would on a mobile device and to reduce failed login attempts and frustration by tapping the “eye” button to view the password as entered.

As an added feature, when a User password is forgotten, the Admin password can be used to access data and restore User access.
