Kingston Digital Inc. has released the DataTraveler 4000 Gen. 2 and DataTraveler 4000 Gen. 2 Management Ready, a pair of next-generation encrypted USB flash drives designed to safeguard an organization’s valuable data.
DataTraveler 4000 G2 is FIPS 140-2 Level 3 certified and provides a tamper-evident seal for physical security to detect and respond to attempts to access, use, or modify the cryptographic module. Data is protected by hardware-based 256-bit AES encryption in XTS mode and the drive casing is made of titanium coated stainless steel. The drive is designed to reduce the possibility of successful brute force attacks as it locks down and reformats after 10 failed password attempts.
DataTraveler 4000 G2 Management Ready features the same security and features as DataTraveler 4000 G2, but also offers optional SafeConsole management from BlockMaster. SafeConsole offers organizations a variety of tools including the ability to remotely reset passwords, configure password and device policies, and activate audit for compliance. DataTraveler 4000 G2 Management Ready allows companies to initially deploy the drive as a stand-alone, secure device, and then have the option of adding a central management solution later.
Both drives offer USB 3.0 data transfer rates and are available in 4GB, 8GB, 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB capacities. DataTraveler 4000 G2 and DataTraveler 4000 G2 Management Ready utilize NAND and controller design that allows the NAND to be interchanged without requalification and certification.
