This week Kingston unveiled a couple of new USB flash drive called the IronKey D300 and the IronKey D300 Managed.
Kingston created these new drives to offer up FIPS 140-2 Level 3 Certified, 256-bit AES-XTS hardware-based encryption, allowing you to safeguard the sensitive information that you keep on your USB drive.
It also provides USB 3.0 connectivity, with fast transfer rates and storage sizes that includes 4GB, 8GB, 16GB, 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB.
Kingston explains more about it with the following:
IronKey D300 is FIPS 140-2 Level 3 certified, with 256-bit AES hardware encryption in XTS mode. The drive’s exterior is made with a zinc casing and waterproof to 4 feet while the interior components are encased in a tamper-evident epoxy seal for physical security. IronKey D300 employs digitally signed firmware, making it immune to the BadUSB malware, and it enforces complex password protocol* with minimum characteristics to prevent unauthorized access. Encryption and decryption is done on the drive with no trace left on the host system and the drive locks down and reformats after 10 invalid attempts, to protect against brute force attacks.
IronKey D300 managed requires IronKey EMS by DataLocker®** which allows central management of drive access and usage across thousands of drives. IronKey EMS is a flexible management solution as it can be either cloud-based or on premises. It enforces drive-specific policies such as password strength and retry limits, and lets administrators remotely disable lost or stolen drives, recover lost passwords and more. Kingston and DataLocker have been close partners working together on managed encrypted solutions.
