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.
