Kingston DataTraveler Secure Privacy EditionKingston Technology Press Release

[21 November 2006]  Kingston Technology today announced the availability of its new DataTraveler Secure Privacy Edition, a USB Flash drive specifically designed to meet enterprise-level security and compliance requirements.  Kingston Technology’s DataTraveler Secure Privacy Edition is the world’s first USB Flash drive that guarantees 100 percent security for your data whilst on the move.  Featuring a 256-bit hardware-based AES encryption, the Privacy Edition offers fail-safe security and is the perfect solution for organisations looking for an efficient and cost-effective method to secure important data.

Equipped with a complex password protocol and a mechanism that locks out would-be hackers and any unauthorized users after ten consecutive failed password attempts, the DataTraveler Secure Privacy Edition removes the pressure placed on employees to protect their sensitive business information.

The new drives feature titanium-coated stainless steel casings designed to withstand harsh working environments and operating conditions. It is also waterproof - conforming to the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standards - to protect against water damage to depths of up to four feet (1, 22 metres).

Slightly larger than a small pack of chewing gum, the DataTraveler Secure Privacy Edition offers superior performance, with read and write speeds of up to 24 MB/sec and 10 MB/sec. It is also available in storage capacities of up to 4 GB and comes with a five-year warranty and full customer support.
