Kingston Technology, a world leader in memory products and technology solutions, has added new features to its recent Cyber Defense 2018 Global Awards winning IronKey™ D300 encrypted USB Flash drive to improve device management and security. A new Serialized version (D300S) with two new features will further enhance the drive’s already advanced level of security to safeguard sensitive data.
IronKey D300S will have a unique serial number and bar code on the drive itself, allowing network administrators to simply read or scan the code instead of plugging in the drive. When a drive is deployed, returned or during any physical auditing or asset management of hardware, this feature will make the process more efficient and streamlined. The second feature, a virtual keyboard, enables users to enter a password with clicks of the mouse instead of using a physical keyboard, thereby providing a greater level of protection against any possible keylogging when using D300S on other computers.
The new Serialized drives will also be available as a Managed model1 (D300SM) that requires IronKey EMS or SafeConsole® by DataLocker³ allowing central management of drive access and usage across thousands of drives. This will be the first IronKey drive that will now be supported on SafeConsole, allowing it to be used by customers who already have it installed. IronKey D300SM will be available Q1 2019.
“We’re not content on standing pat with any of our products, no matter how good they are,” said Kingston “The data protection provided by IronKey D300 is already top notch, and we’ve listened to requests from our customers. These two enhancements in the D300 series add to its industry-leading data-protection capabilities. With Kingston’s 30-plus years of expertise in quality technology solutions behind it, along with the latest NAND Flash memory and controller technology, users of any D300 drive can rest assured that their confidential data and information are well protected from the risks and threats associated with loss, theft, or stolen digital devices.”
