Sydney, Australia – April 13, 2016 – The massive leak of confidential documents recently not only reveal the hidden wealth of politician and businessmen worldwide, but also reiterate the importance of information security. Governments, corporates, and even individuals like us can never be too careful when dealing with sensitive materials. Kingston, the independent world leader in memory products, today announced two new hardware encrypted USB Flash drives that can be managed with SafeConsole® by DataLocker®. DataTraveler® 4000G2 with Management (DT4000G2DM) and DataTraveler Vault Privacy 3.0 with Management (DTVP30DM) solve the needs of organisations required to meet Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) and protect data at the highest level across their mobile workforce. Both devices can be used as a managed solution via the SafeConsole Encryption Management Platform from DataLocker Inc., Kingston’s partner for encrypted USB drive management.

The new Kingston® USB drives are both 256-bit AES hardware encrypted and FIPS certified (DT4000G2DM is FIPS 140-2 Level 3 validated; DTVP30DM is FIPS 197 certified) to ensure maximum corporate and personal data security. Additionally, SafeConsole is the only secure USB management platform for secure USB drives with true password management – both remote and local. The platform enables secure resetting of forgotten passwords, activation of full audit trails, geolocation and geofencing to ensure cross-border compliance, automatic inventory, and a “remote kill” feature in the event of device loss.

Organisations should develop best practices to safeguard data outside of a company’s firewalls as data leaks become more prevalent and certain regions adopt regulatory policies. The European Union (EU) will soon enact the General Data Protection Regulation, which mandates that businesses strengthen their digital infrastructure or face significant penalties. Part of an organisational policy should include device-level management that allows control over LAN and Internet connections. This enables better tracking and auditing of data moving in and out of a company.

“Human error, malicious attacks and technical failures can place employee and corporate data at risk. Companies, agencies and organisations need to implement a security policy well before anything goes wrong as it’s critical to prevent non-compliance, fines and even financial loss,” said Nathan Su, Flash Memory Sales Director, APAC Region, Kingston. “Our latest encrypted managed USB drives, the recent IronKey acquisition and growing DataLocker partnership all demonstrates Kingston’s commitment to providing the most secure and largest family of encrypted USB solutions on the market.”  
    
Kingston’s DT4000G2DM and DTVP30DM are available in 4GB, 8GB, 16GB, 32GB and 64GB capacities, and are backed by a five-year warranty, free technical support and legendary Kingston reliability. For more information visit www.kingston.com.
