Kingston DataTraveler 5000 gets 256 bit AES encryption

Carry plenty of data around on a USB flash drive? If that is so, why not make it all the more secure with the Kingston DataTraveler 5000, as this model comes with a built-in 256-bit AES hardware-based encryption. In addition, it is FIPS 140-2 Level 2 certified with Level 3 pending, boasting XTS cipher mode and elliptic curve cryptography (ECC) algorithms which are up to Suite B standards approved by the U.S. government. OK, that’s a whole lot of geek talk, but the bottomline is this – the Kingston DataTraveler 5000 is one really, really hard USB flash drive to crack in the event that you lose it. Depending on your needs, it will come in 2GB, 4$GB, 8GB and 16GB capacities, retailing for $111, $185, $231 and $400, respectively.
