London, UK -- (20th October 2008) -- Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today launched the DataTraveler Locker, a hardware-based encrypted USB flash drive providing advanced data protection when on the move, for UK consumers and small businesses . The DataTraveler Locker is one of the first USB drives with high standard data security aimed at consumers and SMBs at a competitive price. The DT Locker will be available at Staples Inc. high street stores.
“With the growing amount of electronic storage and data loss scandals, we see an increased number of individual users who want to secure and protect their personal data” said Kirsty Miller, EMEA Consumer Product Manager, Kingston Technology. “With the advanced 256bit AES encryption it would not only take a hacker more than a hundred trillion years to crack the code, the USB drive will completely erase the stored data after ten failed login attempts, meaning there would be no chance for the records to fall into the wrong hands.”
The DataTraveler Locker features hardware-based, 256bit AES encryption with a public and an encrypted zone to safeguard even the most sensitive data in case the drive is lost or stolen.
With no need to install an application and no requirement for admin rights, the DataTraveler Locker can easily be integrated into any kind of environment and used immediately.
Kingston’s new DataTraveler Locker USB drive is available in 2GB, 4GB and 8GB and is backed by a 5-year warranty and Kingston’s legendary service and support.
