Kingston Technology Corporation, introduced Kingston Data Traveler Elite - Privacy Edition (DTE Privacy Edition), the world's first USB Flash drive that secures 100% of data on-the-fly via 128-bit hardware-based AES encryption, ensuring fail-safe security best practices without IT intervention.

Offering up to 4GB of secure storage, DTE Privacy Edition is a plug-and-play USB device specifically targeted to meet enterprise-level security and compliance requirements. If the drive is ever lost or stolen, data on the DTE Privacy Edition device remains secure.

In addition to hardware-based encryption, the drive features several other advanced security measures, including a complex password protocol and a mechanism that locks out would-be attackers after 25 consecutive failed password attempts, ensuring information is accessible only by authorized users, and thwarting even "brute force attack" attempts to access data on lost or stolen devices.

Thanks to their large cap

acity, portability and simplicity, USB storage devices have become extremely popular among computer users, and have quickly made their way into the enterprise. However organizations have been challenged in preventing the transfer or loss of corporate data contained on these devices. DTE Privacy Edition is an ideal solution for organizations looking for an efficient, cost-effective method of securing data.

"Securing mobile data is one of the key challenges IT professionals face today," said Digital Media Product Manager, APAC Business Division, Kingston, Dave Lee, "Many organizations have hundreds of megabytes of critical information stored on personal drives that are potentially at risk to loss or theft. With DTE Privacy Edition, enterprises can support their increasingly mobile workforces with an enterprise-grade storage solution, and have peace of mind that sensitive information is secure."

The DTE Privacy Edition drive addresses a major issue companies face today --

enforcement of security policy. While it's relatively easy to establish security best practices and policies, the challenge is getting employee to comply. Even one renegade (or lazy) employee presents a compliance risk. If you have no way of enforcing security compliance, then your enterprise data is compromised.

The DTE Privacy Edition removes the onus on employees to take steps to secure data; the drive automatically encrypts data, ensuring best practice, fail-safe security. The drive is designed to deliver a smooth streamlined end-user experience. When authorized users access the encrypted files, they are able to view the data without the need for additional software.

Additionally, DTEP Privacy Edition drives are operable from any computer, and do not require admin rights. Required by many software programs and a sore spot for many IT administrators, admin rights refer to membership in the local Administrators group, which must be granted and set up by the IT adminis

trator.
