Kingston Digital, Inc. has released a product for those looking at carrying sensitive information, or just really don't want their siblings seeing the hundreds of selfies that were taken the night before.




Introducing the DataTraveler 2000, coming in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB capacities, packing Datalock Technology licensed from ClevX, LLC within and a keypad to ensure only you can access what is inside - unless someone else knows the code.


This USB drive is suitable for Windows 10, 8.1, 8, 7 and even Vista systems, while also functioning just fine with Mac OS X, Linux, Chrome OS and Android devices. Offering USB 3.1 Gen. 1 speeds, this encrypted device allows users to choose their own PIN and auto-locks when removed from the host device, with further security measures meaning that it will delete the encryption key and password after 10 invalid login attempts.
