Kingston releases managed model of encrypted USB

DUBAI, January 22, 2019

Kingston Digital Europe Co, the flash memory affiliate of Kingston Technology Company - a world leader in memory products and technology solutions, has launched the managed model of IronKey D300 Serialized (D300SM) encrypted USB Flash drive.

A fully-encrypted managed USB drive is an essential component in following industry standards and the strong data encryption of the D300 series is what makes this drive compliant for data storage under GDPR and the New York financial regulations, said a statement from the company.

IronKey D300SM requires IronKey EMS or SafeConsole by DataLocker1 allowing central management of drive access and usage across thousands of drives, it said.

Either cloud-based or on-premises, it enforces drive-specific policies, such as password strength and retry limits, lets administrators remotely disable lost or stolen drives, reset passwords when forgotten and more.

This is the first IronKey drive that is supported on SafeConsole, allowing it to be used by customers who already have SafeConsole installed, it added.

IronKey D300SM is FIPS 140-2 Level 3 certified and uses 256-bit AES hardware-based encryption in XTS mode. The drive has a unique serial number and bar code on the drive itself, allowing network administrators to easily scan or read the code during any physical auditing or asset management, making the process more efficient and streamlined.

Also, a virtual keyboard enabling users to enter a password with clicks of the mouse instead of using a physical keyboard, protecting against possible keylogging when using the drive on other computers.

Pasi Siukonen, technical resources group - team leader, Kingston EMEA, said: “Introducing a Managed model of the Serialized drive under our award winning IronKey D300 gives Kingston a more complete line of encrypted USB solutions for organizations of all levels.”

“This is our first encrypted USB that is multi-platform compatible so current customers of either IronKey EMS or SafeConsole can easily add and deploy D300SM into their organisation’s current workflow,” Siukonen added.

IronKey D300SM is available in 4GB to 128GB capacities and is backed by a limited five-year warranty, free technical support and legendary Kingston reliability, it stated. – TradeArabia News Service
