Kingston Technology Europe Co LLP, an affiliate of Kingston Technology Company, Inc., a world leader in memory products and technology solutions, has revealed its participation at the 38th edition of GITEX Technology Week, the biggest and boldest technology show in the MENA and South Asia regions, which will take place from October 14 to October 18, 2018 at the Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC). During its presence at the exciting five-day show, the company is set to unveil a wide range of memory solutions–including its pioneering line of encrypted SSDs and its latest portfolio of encrypted USBs. Kingston Technology will be located at Hall No. 3, Stand B3-20 at the DWTC.
According to the company’s senior executives, Kingston Technology’s presence at this year’s GITEX show will serve as a perfect opportunity to demonstrate its UV500, the company’s first 3D NAND-enabled SSD featuring full-disk encryption and TCG Opal 2.0 support. Pegged as an encrypted solution for every user, the UV500 helps improve system responsiveness with incredible boot, loading and data transfer times. The UV500 brings users the advantage of 256-bit hardware-based encryption and data loss prevention (DLP) when activated with TCG Opal 2.0 specification programs like Symantec, McAfee and WinMagic. It is a critical component of compliance with global industry standards and regulations, including the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Meanwhile, Kingston Technology will feature and demonstrate the power of its forthcoming DC1000M 2.5″ U.2 NVMe SSD, which boasts of high storage capabilities–fully integrated with a Gen 3.0 x4 NVMe interface that results in high throughput and low latency. This SSD works seamlessly with today’s current line of next-gen servers that utilize PCle and U.2 blackplanes.
Antoine Harb, Team Leader Middle East and North Africa, Kingston Technology, said, “We are looking forward to our participation at this year’s edition of GITEX as we are set to introduce our latest range of powerful SSDs and USBs–consolidating our leading presence in the memory products and technology solutions segments. Aside from demonstrating our pioneering line of UV500 SSDs and fully encrypted range of USBs, the event provides Kingston Technology with the strategic opportunity of increasing awareness on the significant role that data protection plays and how we help address privacy challenges in the region.”
Meanwhile, Kingston Technology will also highlight its newest line of fully encrypted USBs. The company will feature the DataTraveler® 2000, which has been developed with an alphanumeric keypad that locks and unlocks the drive with number combination, for easy-to-use PIN protection. The USB also comes with a unique auto-lock feature that is immediately activated upon removal from a device and deletes the encryption key after 10-failed intrusion attempts. Also, being highlighted is the DataTraveler Vault Privacy 3.0, which is affordable enterprise-grade security with 256-bit AES hardware-based encryption in XTS mode. It protects 100 percent of stored data and enforces complex password protection with minimum characteristics to prevent unauthorized access. Another affordable security tool is the DataTraveler 4000G2 with Management capabilities–presented with 256-bit AES hardware-based encryption in XTS mode, to safeguard 100 percent of confidential data. It provides companies with the most commonly required security for USBs. Lastly, Kingston Technology will also showcase its latest IronKey models, the D300 and the S1000. The IronKey D300 is FIPS 140-2 Level 3 certified and comes with 256-bit AES hardware encryption in XTS mode. The IronKey S1000 is the ultimate security drive with its 256-bit AES hardware-based encryption, in XTS mode, and FIPS 140-2 Level 3 validation with dedicated on-device Cryptochip Encryption Key management. The S1000 can immediately detect and react to physical tampering and provides automatic data protection upon drive removal. As with all its USBs, these models lock down and reformat after 10 invalid password attempts to protect against brute force attacks, among other key features that make Kingston Technology a leader in data security.
“All of the solutions that we will showcase ensure full protection of stored data and enforces the use of complex password protection with minimum characteristics to prevent unauthorized access. As with all our products, these new lines of encrypted USBs and encrypted SSDs are backed by legendary Kingston pre- and post-sales support and a five-year limited warranty,” concluded Harb.
