Kingston reveals DataTraveler Secure flash drives

updated 03:25 pm EDT, Wed October 11, 2006

DataTraveler Secure

Every business traveler is concerned about safeguarding private business data when away from work; not every removable drive is capacious or secure enough to be trusted with that information. Kingston addressed both problems today by releasing two new DataTraveler USB flash drive lines. The DataTraveler Secure adds password protection with 256-bit AES encryption to any files stored on a special section of the drive. This security method is strict enough to also prevent brute-force cracking: if ten successive failed passwords are entered, the DataTraveler Secure locks the information outright. An upcoming Privacy Edition of the drive will be even tougher to break, using hardware encryption instead of software and protecting data with a more complex password routine. All models are waterproof to four feet and will work with Windows Vista's ReadyBoost to serve as a temporary cache for the future OS. Ordinary DataTraveler Secure models are shipping now with prices ranging from $33 for 512MB to $244 for 4GB. The Privacy Edition will arrive in January at the same capacities for an unspecified price.
