the launch of two latest products in its encryption series, the IronKey Vault Privacy 80 external encrypted SSD and the IronKey Vault Privacy 50 encrypted USB flash drive. In addition, a new series of DataTraveler flash drives are also launched, including the DataTraveler microDuo 3C USB flash drive with Type-A and Type-C dual transmission interfaces, and the DataTraveler Micro USB flash drive with a lightweight texture.
IronKey Vault Privacy 80 is Kingston’s first external encryption SSD
. It is equipped with a color touch screen, which can be operated independently without an operating system, and has a hardware encryption function. In order to achieve the purpose of data protection, the encryption function has been certified by FIPS 197, and XTS-AES 256-bit hardware encryption technology is adopted. It can also effectively resist threats such as brute force cracking and BadUSB through digital signature firmware.
In addition to a user-friendly interface and hardware encryption mechanism, VP80ES also has a variety of data protection functions. It includes multiple password (admin/user) options, configurable password rules, etc., and also provides an automatic locking function over time, as well as a secure erase function that can completely erase data at critical moments and prevent important files from leaking.
When users forget their passwords, administrators can use their own set of passwords to restore data or access files. If the passwords of the user and the administrator are entered incorrectly up to 15 times in a row, the VP80ES will activate the brute-force cracking prevention mechanism, encrypt and erase the data on the hard disk, and prevent malicious behaviors such as data theft.
The VP80ES external encryption SSD will come with a set of diving cloth protection bags and two USB 3.2 Gen 1 transmission cables, which can be used for Type-C and Type-A devices respectively.
The new IronKey Vault Privacy 50 encrypted USB flash drive also uses FIPS 197 certified XTS-AES 256-bit encryption technology to protect data. It supports three password modes: administrator, user, one-time recovery password, and complex password/string password. It also has a mechanism to prevent brute force cracking.
In the user and one-time recovery password mode, if the wrong password is entered 10 times in a row, it will be automatically locked. In the administrator mode, if the wrong password is entered 10 times in a row, the data on the hard disk will be encrypted and erased, or the read-only mode will be activated through the user and administrator terminals, and the write protection setting will be used to resist malicious program attacks.
As for the synchronously updated DataTraveler microDuo 3C dual-interface flash drive, it provides Type-C and Type-A dual interfaces respectively, and corresponds to USB 3.2 Gen 1 level transmission performance, with a read speed of 200MB per second. The new DataTraveler Micro USB flash drive adopts a lightweight design, provides a reading speed of 200MB per second, and a maximum storage capacity of 256GB, and is made of the metal itself.
The IronKey Vault Privacy 80 external encryption SSD is available in 480GB, 960GB, and 1920GB capacity options, and comes with a three-year product warranty. IronKey Vault Privacy 50 encrypted USB flash drives are available in 8GB-256GB capacity options and come with a five-year product warranty. The DataTraveler microDuo 3C and DataTraveler Micro two USB flash drives offer a five-year product warranty.
