The Kingston DataTraveler 6000 is a high tech data protection thumb drive. It protects using FIPS 140-2 Level 3 Validation and 100% encryption. The drive is intended for secret services or government organizations who have sensitive data in hand. The Kingston DataTraveler 6000 supports 256-bit AES hardware-based encryption using XTS block cipher mode, military-grade elliptic curve cryptography (ECC), and passes Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2 Level 3 Validation.
“While enterprises and government agencies need to be able to provide remote and mobile employees access to sensitive and confidential data, establishing security policies and deploying USB products that prevent data loss is as important and immediate as an organization’s network security,” said John Terpening, Secure USB business manager, Kingston. “Using non-secure USB drives makes organizations vulnerable to data loss and breaches that can affect the company’s credibility with its employees, customers and partners. The DT6000 is the most secure USB Flash drive available and will meet the most stringent corporate or government requirements.”
If the drive falls in the wrong hand then within 10 intrusion attempts, it will lock down destroy the encryption key. The exterior finishing of the drive is titanium-coated stainless steel casing and finishing with water resistance up to 4 feet. For the obvious high level data protection users will have to pay $100 for 2GB, $116 for 4GB, $147 for 8GB and $208 for 16GB.
