Releases FIPS 140-2 Level 3 Encrypted USB Flash Drive with Management Ready Option
Kingston has released a pair of next-generation encrypted USB Flash drives designed to safeguard an organization’s valuable data. The DataTraveler 4000 Gen. 2 and DataTraveler 4000 Gen. 2 Management Ready protect sensitive information with high-level encryption.
DataTraveler 4000 Gen. 2 is FIPS 140-2 Level 3 certified so it provides a tamper-evident seal for physical security to detect and respond to attempts to access, use or modify the cryptographic module announced the press release. Data is protected by hardware-based 256-bit AES encryption in XTS mode and the drive casing is made of titanium coated stainless steel. The drive is designed to reduce the possibility of successful brute force attacks as it locks down and reformats after 10 failed password attempts.
DataTraveler 4000 Gen. 2 Management Ready features the same security and features as DataTraveler 4000 Gen. 2 but also offers optional SafeConsolemanagement from BlockMaster. SafeConsole gives organizations powerful tools including the ability to remotely reset passwords, configure password and device policies and activate audit for compliance. DataTraveler 4000 Gen. 2 Management Ready gives companies the flexibility to initially deploy the drive as a stand-alone, secure device, and then have the option of adding a central management solution later.
DataTraveler 4000 Gen. 2 and DataTraveler 4000 Gen. 2 Management Ready offer USB 3.0 data transfer rates and will soon be available in India with 4GB, 8GB, 16GB, 32GB and 64GB capacities. Both the drives will also be backed by a five-year warranty, and free technical support. They utilize industry-leading NAND and controller design that allows the NAND to be interchanged without requalification and certification.
