Best Data Security/Loss Management Solution won by Kingston Technology in Government Security News Awards
Kingston’s line of encrypted USB Flash drives are this year’s winner for the Government Security News 2017 Airport/Seaport/Border Security “Best Data Security/Loss Management Solution” award.
The robustness of Kingston’s product offering impressed the judges. From the DataTraveler 2000, with alphanumeric keypad for someone simply wanting to protect personal data such as medical records or tax information, to the IronKey S1000 for the most sensitive of data, Kingston has solutions for every type of user.
The IronKey S1000 uses fast USB 3.0 performance to integrate military-grade 256-bit AES hardware-based encryption in XTS mode and an on-device Cryptochip encryption key management to serve as dual layer protection. Its epoxy-filled rugged anodized aluminum case construction creates another layer of physical tampering security to withstand the elements for almost any application or intrusion. Additionally, the drive uses digitally-signed firmware and locks down after a brute force attack of ten invalid password attempts, providing options to either reformat or destroy the drive.
Government, defense and intelligence agencies, as well as the civilian companies that contract with them are under intense scrutiny and pressure to comply with a lengthening list of legislative requirements and protocols designed to protect sensitive data in transit and at rest. IronKey S1000 is designed specifically to meet the strictest standards and most demanding data protection needs of sensitive military, government and enterprise information. With Kingston Technology’s S1000, one can manage threats, reduce risks, and comply with U.S. legislative requirements such as the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA), OMB M06-16 Mandate, Federal Desktop Core Configuration (FDCC) mandates, and the Director of Central Intelligence Directive (CDID) 6/3.
In addition to the Basic model qualities, the S1000 Enterprise version offers central administration of drive access and usage across thousands of IronKey enterprise drives with the intuitive, easy to use, secure online interface. The IronKey Enterprise Management Service* (EMS) efficiently and cost-effectively protects data by administering usage and encryption policies, password restrictions, and more from a central console.
When it comes the best in data security and loss management, Kingston Technology provides quality encrypted USB solutions that cater to a multitude of data protection needs.
