Kingston lanceert IronKey KP200, USB-stick met hardwareversleuteling

Kingston launches IronKey KP200, a USB flash drive for hardware encryption

Kingston offers the IronKey 200 keyboard. The physical keyboard allows encryption of data stored with a password.

The USB stick has five versions: 8 GB, 16 GB, 32 GB, 64 GB and 128 GB. The model connects to any system that supports USB Type A storage devices. Data protection is key.

Users can set two passwords: user password and administrator password. After ten login attempts with the wrong user password, the drive will be locked. The administrator password allows you to restore the user’s password. After ten login attempts with the wrong administrator password, the contents of the disk are permanently deleted.

Value Added

You don’t need a USB stick with a keyboard to encrypt the data. The archiving software also enables storing encrypted data on a USB drive. However, the IronKey Keypad 200 has an added value. Kingston has developed two additional security measures.

First of all, the XTS-AES model supports 256-bit hardware encryption. Data is carefully encrypted, regardless of which operating system you connect the drive to. Secondly, the model received FIPS-140-3 Level 3 Military Certification. Circuits are encapsulated to prevent access to internal components. You’ll find a polymer layer on the keyboard keys, so users leave few or no fingerprints.

“The model is the first engine to pass certification lab testing for NIST’s latest FIPS 140-3 Level 3 security level,” said Oscar Esquiola Caludis, Flash EMEA Director of Kingston. The Kingston IronKey Keypad 200 comes with a three-year warranty. Technical support is free.
