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.

WhatsApp is illegal, will soon banned in India : Government

WhatsApp could have accidentally entered into troubled waters here in India by enabling its end-to-end encryption for all. The new security feature by WhatsApp is not what is required by the Indian telecom rules and WhatsApp could face a ban, if the rules are not adhered to. But not yet.
In India, companies need to follow the country’s rules and adhere to specific types of encryption, which WhatsApp does not currently use. WhatsApp’s end-to-end encryption on its chat service means that WhatsApp or anyone else won’t be able to crack open its contents.  Only the sender and the recipient are able to read the encrypted data. WhatsApp uses a 256-bit key for encryption of all chat messages, which is only known to the sender and the recipient.
Why is it not possible for WhatsApp to help decrypt users’ messages? "No one can see inside that message. Not cybercriminals. Not hackers. Not oppressive regimes. Not even us," WhatsApp founders Jan Koum and Brian Acton wrote on their blog. How…

3 Mega Acquisitions in last week affects the Internet Space of India

Qihoo 360 buys Opera in $1.2 Billion Opera Software intends to accept a $1.2 billion acquisition offer from a group of Chinese companies. The Chinese consortium includes Internet security company Qihoo 360, Internet firm Beijing Kunlun (which invested roughly$93 millioninto Grindr earlier in the year) and investment group Golden Brick and Yonglian. According to Opera, the $1.2 billion is a 56 percent premium over Opera's share price during the last 30 trading days. Despiteclaiming350 million users, the company's browser has struggled in the oversaturated Western market. China could be a profitable arena for Opera, in part because Google's Chrome browserdoes not come preinstalled on Android phones in China like it does elsewhere. In addition, doing business in China without local partners is nigh impossible, but Opera could leverage the networks of Kunlun and Qihoo 360 if the deal goes through.
