Kingston Digital, the flash memory affiliate of Kingston Technology Company, Inc., a world leader in memory products and technology solutions, today announced the addition of 128 GB capacity options to three of its encrypted USB flash drives. The drives are part of a full line of encrypted solutions to suit customer needs of all levels.

Consumers and organisations have become more aware of data privacy and protection needs due to regulations such as GDPR and CCPA. Additional data security options have become a necessity as work-from-home increases. The simple inclusion of encrypted USB flash drives into a daily workflow is a simple step to ensuring data is safe. Whether it's personal, company or client information, finding the right encrypted drive can make all the difference between peace of mind and the worry of loss of data.

DataTraveler Locker+ G3 (DTLPG3) secures personal data with hardware encryption and password protection for a double layer of data security. DTLPG3 offers cloud backup as an optional feature allowing users to automatically back up data from their USB to Google Drive, OneDrive (Microsoft ), Amazon Cloud Drive, Dropbox or Box. The feature gives added peace of mind as users can access data if the drive is not present.

DataTraveler Locker+ G3 is easy to setup and easy to use, with no application installation required; all the software and security needed is built in. The drive works on both Windows and Mac operating systems so users can access files from multiple devices, without installing a program on every computer used.

Kingston's DataTraveler Vault Privacy 3.0 (DTVP 3.0) USB flash drive provides affordable business-grade security with 256-bit AES hardware-based encryption in XTS mode. It also features a read-only access mode to avoid potential malware risks. DTVP 3.0 allows organisations to customise drives to meet internal corporate IT requirements. Co-logo, serialization numbering, number of attempted password entries, minimum password length and customised product identifiers for integration with standard end-point management software (white-listing) are all available through customisation.

"Portable data security is becoming more and more important with the increase in people working from home. Kingston is glad to continue expanding our line of encrypted USB solutions to help users take control of their security needs," said Oscar Escayola, flash business manager, Kingston EMEA. "Within our full line of encrypted drives, we offer high levels of encryption, fast USB 3.0 performance and after 10 intrusion attempts, the drives lock down so users can rest assured their data is safe."

Available July 27, DataTraveler 4000G2 (DT4000G2DM) is FIPS 140-2 Level 3-certified with 256-bit AES-XTS encryption. Co-logo, serialisation numbering, number of attempted password entries, minimum password length and customised product identifiers for integration with standard end-point management software (white-listing) are all available through customisation. IT administrators can optionally centrally manage this drive to meet compliance requirements and provide a higher level of support using SafeConsole. Activation is a simple process and allows IT professionals to remotely configure passwords and device policies, activate audit for compliance and more. These powerful tools simplify drive integration and operation and management, even in remote locations.

DTLPG3 is available in capacities 8 GB to 128 GB. While DTVP 3.0 and DT4000G2DM are available in capacities 4 GB to 128 GB. All are backed by a five-year warranty with free technical support.

Those are very attractive drive designs, but I'd have saved the push button unlock for larger capacities like 256GB and 512GB until you can get an affordable 1TB.

i doubt if it offers a well layered protection. Many "encrypted" usb keys in the past where as leak as Windows.
