Kingston Digital Europe has announced a new USB flash drive, this time one focused on securing user data. The new model is Kingston DataTraveler 2000, with the capacity of 128 GB. It comes with USB interface, has encryption and alphanumeric keys.
DataTraveler 2000 is equipped with an alphanumeric keypad, which allows the user to secure the unit with a PIN code consisting of letters or numbers, providing an extra level of protection. For extra security, the USB drive has an automatic lock function. It will be activated when it is not turned off properly before removing the device from USB. This product comes in the context of work from home, which involves, among other things, the transfer of large and sensitive files from the office with extra security.
The DT2000 joins the Kingston USB series of encrypted models that can reach military security. This product has FIPS 140-2 Level 3 certification and offers 256-bit military-grade AES encryption. It is designed with IT professionals in the field of global security, small and medium enterprises, but also users in corporations. The encryption is done on the unit, without any trace of the PIN code in the system. That unit is independent of the operating system.
DataTraveler 2000 comes in storage options between 4 and 128 GB, with a 3-year warranty.
