India–August 2022 –Taking ahead its legacy of providing best in class portable storage solutions, Kingston Technology, a world leader in memory products and technology solutions, today announced the release the latest product in its encrypted lineup, IronKey Vault Privacy 50 (VP50), perfect for enterprise usersand content creators looking for data security.

Hardware-encrypted Storage Product for Data Security and Protection

The new encrypted USB drive, IronKey Vault Privacy 50 (VP50) comes withFIPS 197 certification and AES 256-bit hardware-encryption in XTS mode for data security. VP50supports Admin, User, and One-Time Recovery passwords with Complex or Passphrase modes, and this multi-password option enhances the ability to recover access to data on the drive should one of the passwords be forgotten.The new passphrase mode gives users the ability to have a numeric PIN, sentence, list of words, or even lyrics from 10 to 64 characters long that’s unique, yet memorable to them.

Admin can also enable a User and a One-Time Recovery password or reset the User password to restore data access. In addition, VP50 protects against Brute Force attacks by locking out User or One-Time Recovery passwords upon 10 invalid entries in a row and crypto-erases the drive if the Admin password is entered incorrectly 10 times in a row. So, while data is lost, there’s no fear of a breach.

VP50also protects against potential malware on untrusted systems, by both Admin and User setting Read-Only mode to write-protect the drive; additionally, the built-in virtual keyboard shields passwords from keyloggers or screen-loggers. Organizations can customize and configure VP50 with a Product ID (PID) for integration with standard Endpoint Management software to meet corporate IT and cybersecurity requirement through Kingston’s Customization Program. Small and Medium Businesses can take advantage of the Admin role to locally manage their drives, e.g. use Admin to configure or reset employee User or One-Time Recovery passwords, recover data access on locked drives, and comply with laws and regulations when forensics are required. VP50 is encrypted storage under the user’s physical control, making it superior to using the internet and Cloud services to safeguard important data.
