According to Kingston, files stored on the Data Traveler Vault are secured by a hardware-based, 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES). The drive is protected from brute-force attacks by locking down after 10 unsuccessful login attempts.

 After lockdown, a reformat is necessary to make the Flash drive operable again. For additional protection, the DTVP is made of aluminum and is waterproof up to a depth of four feet.

Kingston Technology’s Regional Manager for Australia and New Zealand, Vaughan Nankivell said, “Our DataTraveler Vault – Privacy Edition has been popular with enterprise and government customers who use Windows-based systems and are looking for a safe and secure way to transport portable data. We are happy to add Mac support to this 100-percent secured drive so the Apple community can be assured they have an on-the-go storage solution that is the best on the market at safeguarding data.”

The Kingston DataTraveler Vault-Privacy Edition is available now with an RRP of $749 for the 16GB model and $1139 for the 32GB model.
