Kingston’s DataTraveler 2000 Provides Undisputed Security and Encryption

A new USB device series has been launched by Kingston aiming to provide secure and tamper-proof thumb drive to IT professionals while on the go.

Kingston DataTraveler 2000 has been created for offering top-notch security to crucially important files that require transportation from one place to another or for preventing unauthorized employees from checking out the thumb drive’s contents if left on the desk or lost in the office.
This new thumbDrive features a full disk, hardware-based AES 256-bit data encryption in XTS format. It also has an innovative PIN pad that’s embedded on the USB drive’s casing.
When someone needs to access the data present in Kingston 2000, or the thumb drive is plugged into the computer the alpha-numeric PIN code will have to be entered.
The device also is equipped with brute-force protection and in case such an attack is launched, the drive auto-locks itself by deleting the password and encryption key after ten invalid login attempts.
Furthermore, the drive can also be configured to self-auto-lock every time it gets removed from an authorized computer and a PIN number will be required every time it gets inserted into a new or previously authorized host.
The drive features everything in self-contained mode and there isn’t any software required on host machines whereas the USB stick is also encased in an aluminum shell, which is water and dust resistant.
DataTraveler 2000 has cross-OS support and is compatible with ChromeOS and even Android.
It is capable of 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB capacities and supposedly the drive will be available by the end of first quarter of 2016.
