Kingston Releases DataTraveler 2000 Encrypted USB Flash Drive With Built-in Keypad

Kingston has officially announced the release of the DataTraveler 2000, the company’s latest encrypted USB flash drive designed for global security IT professionals, small-to-medium businesses, and corporate users.

The DataTraveler 2000 features hardware-based, full disk AES 256-bit data encryption in XTS mode. The encryption is done completely on the drive and software or hardware drivers are required. The DataTraveler 2000 is also equipped with an alphanumeric keypad which allows users to lock the drive with a word or number combination for easy and secure PIN protection.

The drive also comes with an auto-lock feature that activates when the drive is removed from a host device. The drive also automatically deletes both the encryption key and password after 10 invalid login attempts to prevent brute force intrusions. Lastly, the DataTraveler 2000 features an aluminum shell for increased durability and protection from water and dust.

“We are excited to add DataTraveler 2000 to our existing lineup of fast and encrypted USB Flash drives for organizations and SMBs,” said Nathan Su, Flash Memory Sales Director, APAC Region, Kingston. “It is the perfect option to deploy in the workforce where a uniform encrypted data storage solution that works on many different OS’ are in use.”

The DataTraveler 2000 is available in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB capacities and is backed by a three-year warranty and free live technical support.
