Do you carry secret or sensitive documents with you on the go? Perhaps you work for the government or an organization that deals with highly sensitive data, and if you’re looking for a secure way of carrying those computer files with you, Kingston may have the answer for you in the form of the DataTraveler D6000.
The DataTraveler D6000 protects your data using FIPS 140-2 Level 3 Validation and 100% encryption. According to Kingston, the D6000 uses “military-grade” elliptic curve cryptography, which apparently is recommended by the US National Security Agency as part of their Suite B set of cryptographic algorithms. It also features 256-bit AES hardware-based encryption. Needless to say this thumb drive is pretty darn secure.
One of the features include the ability for the thumb drive to lock itself down and destroy the encryption key after 10 failed intrusion attempts. On top of all of that, the thumb drive has been designed to pretty quite rugged, sporting a titanium-coated stainless steel casing and is water resistant up to 4 feet.
Naturally with such protection comes a price, and users can expect to pay $100 for the 2GB version, $116 for the 4GB version, $147 for the 8GB version and $208 for the 16GB version.
