Kingston launches IronKey D300 and IronKey D300 Managed encrypted USB flash drives
Kingston, one of the world leaders in memory products, has released its new encrypted flash drives – the IronKey D300 and IronKey D300 Managed. Both drives sport an advanced level of encryption to help companies and organizations secure sensitive data.
FIPS 140-2 Level 3-certified, the IronKey D300 has 256-bit AES hardware encryption in XTS mode. The drive’s exterior is made with zinc casing and waterproof up to four feet, while the interior components are encased in a tamper-evident epoxy seal for physical security.
The IronKey D300 also employs digitally signed firmware, making it immune to the BadUSB malware, and it enforces complex password protocol with minimum characteristics to prevent unauthorized access. To protect against brute force attacks, 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.
Meanwhile, the IronKey D300 Managed requires IronKey EMS by DataLocker, which allows central management of drive access and usage across thousands of drives. The IronKey EMS is a flexible management solution, as it can be either cloud-based or on premises.
The IronKey D300 Managed also enforces drive-specific policies such as password strength and retry limits. It lets administrators remotely disable lost or stolen drives and recover lost passwords.
Both offer fast USB 3.0 data transfer rates and are available in 4GB, 8GB, 16GB, 64GB, and 128GB capacities. The IronKey D300 and IronKey D300 Managed flash drives are backed by a five-year warranty, free technical support, and Kingston reliability.
