Kingston Digital Statement on SF-2000-based Encrypted SSDs

Kingston Digital Europe Ltd, an affiliate of Kingston Technology Company Inc., the independent world leader in memory, along with LSI, its SSD processor partner, have recently been in discussions related to the encryption capabilities of the SF-2000 platform.

Both AES modes encrypt and secure the data on the SSD from unauthorized access -- just to different encryption standards.

Kingston is working with LSI to correct this and to ensure that future production of the aforementioned drives delivers 256-bit AES encryption mode.

Kingston's DRAM Shipments in Asia-Pacific Grows Significantly

Kingston Technology saw a significant growth in its DRAM module shipments, of 20 percent, in 2011. This growth comes despite tough competition and a generally hostile market in 2011 (not because of lack of demand, but oversupply). Kingston told the press that its 20% DRAM shipments growth allowed it to mitigate the impact of plummeting DRAM prices in 2011-12. In addition to quality entry-level bulk DRAM modules, and bleeding-edge HyperX DRAM modules for gaming and enthusiast PCs, Kingston said it would focus on enterprise-grade DRAM for servers and workstations, which yield higher margins. Kingston maintained its 50% worldwide market-share in 2011, maintaining its market dominance.

Corporate and customer data are the lifeline of any company - to be safeguarded at all times and handled cautiously. Data breach trends and recent studies, such as the Ponemon Institute's 2011 report, The State of USB Security, indicate that data breaches continue to occur far more frequently than they should and unsecured USB Flash drives remain a leading culprit. Additionally, failure to protect data can expose a company to a host of negative consequences including non-compliance, fines, financial loss and lack of customer confidence and trust.

SanDisk Follows Kingston, Cuts NAND Flash Product Prices

Following reports that Kingston is reducing prices of its NAND flash-based products by up to 15%, SanDisk too is reportedly preparing price-cuts of its own. Unlike Kingston, SanDisk's entire product portfolio is connected with NAND flash memory, it is the world's largest vendor of memory cards, and also has a vast lineup of USB flash drives. SanDisk will lower its prices just enough to maintain competitiveness with Kingston's products. The company maintains that initiating a price-cutting strategy is intended to boost sales volume and maintain the company's leading market share. According to DRAMeXchange, major NAND flash vendors are initiating price cuts to clear inventories, to make way for flash memory built on newer fabrication technologies.
