|(Eisteve) Kingston Data Traveler 2000|
that need to be transported from one location to another, and for equally preventing unauthorized hands from gaining access a look-see inside thumb drives forgotten on a desk or lost in or outside the office.
First i understand that the USB drive features hardware-based, full disk AES 256-bit data encryption in XTS mode, and also well equipped with an innovation PIN pad embedded right on the USB drive's casing. Meaning each time someone wants to access the thumb drive's data or plugs the drive into a new computer, he'll have to key-in the alpha-numeric PIN code before being granted access.

Of course protection against brute-force attacks on the PIN code is also included, and the drive auto-locks by deleting the encryption key and password files after ten invalid login attempts. Remember also that the DataTraveler can also be configured to auto-lock each time it's removed from an authenticated computer, requiring the PIN every time it's inserted into a host, new or previously authorized.
One thing i love about this Data drive, is that everything about it is self-contained, no need of software on host machines, and upon that Kingston Data Traveler 2000 is also encased in an aluminum shell that's dust and even water resistant. This new product from Kingston comes with cross-OS talk of ChromeOS and even Android, and ships in either 16GB, 32GB, or even 64GB capacities.

From what the company said i strongly believe, the Data drive should hit the market towards the end of Q1 2016. That is around April. But i must also confess here that some people are not quite happy with this device, as some survey carried out by cyber-security vendors have pointed out that most high-level executives fear more insider threats than a data breach.
In-fact they claim that the new device ( Kingston Data Traveler 2000 ) might end up helping some manager feel at ease when it comes to employee data access restrictions and the company (Kingston) are yet to say much about this. Have you gotten the drive love t hear what you think.
