Kingston has unveiled a new flash drive that is designed with security and encryption standards to protect your data robust enough for government use. The new drive I called the DataTraveler 4000-M and it is a managed drive. It is a FIPS-certified specifically for use in enterprise and government.
The hardware-based encryption used is FIPS 140-2 Level 2 certified for the entire crypto module. It also has full device-management for tight policy enforcement to allow for lockdown of stolen or lost modules and allowing them to be asset tagged.
The flash drive is waterproof and the encryption is 256-bit. Capacities of 2GB, 4GB, 8GB, and 16GB are offered. All have the same 18MB/s read and 10MB/s write speed. Pricing ranges from $62 up to $195.Filed Under: Hardware, Technology News, USB Gadgets
