Kingston Lowers Costs and Increases Capacity for Ultra-Secure USB Flash Solutions

Kingston Digital, Inc., the Flash memory affiliate of Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced a reduction in price for its line of enterprise and government secure USB Flash drives, as well as new capacities for its DataTraveler 4000 (DT4000) and DataTraveler Vault - Privacy (DTVP) Managed and Unmanaged secure mobile storage solutions. A leader in memory solutions since 1987, Kingston will exhibit at RSA Conference 2012 (booth 1059) to showcase the industry's only secure USB family ranging from general-purpose business use to flexible, managed enterprise offerings, and to platforms for the most secure and rigid government standards.

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.

Capacity upgrades include:

- DT4000 - Managed and DT4000 are designed for high-value corporate deployments and provide FIPS 140-2 Level 2 certification, 100 percent privacy and an optional Centralized Management system, all at an affordable cost. The SafeConsole Management Software from BlockMaster enforces full USB management control over an organization's DT4000-M USB Flash drives. The latest DT4000 and DT4000-M have increased capacities up to 32 GB and support Mac OS.

- DTVP - Managed and the DTVP are optimal for sensitive enterprise environments with 256-bit AES encryption, 100 percent privacy and an optional Centralized Management System, which is fully customizable to meet an enterprise organization's needs. The DTVP and DTVP-M now offer increased capacities up to 64 GB.

"Kingston continues to be the market leader in secure USBs for government and corporate applications, responding quickly to market requirements and evolving threats," said John Terpening, secure USB business manager, Kingston. "Understanding that the demands continue to increase within a constrained economic environment, Kingston has designed these new upgrades and price reductions to ensure the highest levels of security at an affordable price."

Kingston continues to help businesses close the security gap by bridging best practices with secure USBs. Based on Kingston's extensive market experience and customer feedback, the company recently identified the top best practices that organizations should follow to promote the use of secure USB Flash drives to protect confidential data.

In addition to a full line of secure products, Kingston has access to a long-standing, high-volume distribution and supply chain, shipping to over 100 countries worldwide. In a marketplace often characterized by a shortage of parts, Kingston is able to meet any requirements quickly and cost effectively. Kingston USB Flash Drives are backed by a five-year warranty and full technical support.

400 bucks for 64GB. If it doesn't walk my dog, do the laundry and bake me a cake it's useless for the price...
