Kingston Digital Europe Co LLP, a flash memory affiliate of Kingston Technology Company, Inc., a world leader in memory products and technology solutions, today announced the release of IronKey Locker+ 50 (LP50) USB Flash drive that provides consumer-grade security with AES hardware-encryption in XTS mode to safeguard against BadUSB with digitally-signed firmware and Brute Force password attacks.
Kingston IronKey Locker+ 50 offers multi-password, Admin and User, option with Complex or Passphrase modes. Complex mode allows for passwords from 6-16 characters using 3 out of 4 character sets, while new passphrase mode allows for a numeric PIN, sentence, or even a list of words from 10 to 64 characters long; along with support for international characters. To reduce failed login attempts during password entry, the “eye” symbol can be enabled to reveal what has been typed. But should a User password be forgotten; the Admin password can be used to access the data on the drive or reset the User password.
LP50 is designed for convenience with its small metal casing and built-in key loop, along with the optional feature of USBtoCloud (by ClevX ), users can take and access their data anywhere. LP50 is easy for anyone to setup whether you use Google Drive, OneDrive (Microsoft ), Amazon Cloud Drive, Dropbox or Box for your personal cloud storage. Plus, all the software and security needed is already on the drive so no application installation required, and it works on both Windows and macOS so users can work from multiple systems.
“We are excited to offer another great option for those looking to store their sensitive personal or business data with our IronKey Locker+ 50,” said Oscar Escayola Kaloudis, EMEA Flash Business Manager, Kingston. “LP50 has our most requested feature, dual passwords, along with a new Passphrase mode that will allow users to pick a password that is easier to remember.”
Kingston IronKey Locker+ 50 is available in capacities from 16 GB – 128 GB and is backed by a limited five-year warranty, free technical support and legendary Kingston reliability.
