Kingston has announced a new secure flash drive, the DataTraveler Vault Privacy 3.0, targeted at users that want to secure their data in the event of a lost drive. The drive features hardware based encryption using a 256-bit AES encryption scheme with the XTS block cipher mode. Also included with the drive is DataTraveler Vault Privacy 3.0 Anti-Virus software with the option to purchase a drive with ClevX DriveSecurity from ESET as an alternative. The newest DataTraveler is the first USB 3.0 drive available with hardware encryption. The drive requires a complex password and will automatically lock after 10 failed intrusion attempts. Secure USB business manager Andrew Ewing said, "With the latest DTVP 3.0 security features and optional anti-malware protection by ESET coupled with best practices, organizations can better safeguard confidential data. Kingston has also helped enterprises future proof their investment by implementing fast USB 3.0 speeds and designing controllers which allow NAND to be interchanged without requalification and certification of security features." The drive will be available in capacities of 4GB, 8GB, 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB.
