<p><em>DataTraveler Locker+ Allows Portable Security at Lower Cost</em></p>
<p><strong>Sydney, Australia</strong> – <strong>November 23, 2009</strong>
–Kingston Digital, Inc., the Flash memory affiliate of Kingston Technology
Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced
the release of the DataTraveler Locker+ USB Flash drive. The DataTraveler Locker+
allows companies of any size to secure mobile data with the ease and confidence
of knowing that their data is encrypted and safe. The DataTraveler Locker+ also
comes at a lower cost in times of shrinking IT budgets, making it ideal for
budget-conscious companies.<br/>
<br/>
“Kingston created this drive to address the rise in data loss and theft
which has been a growing problem with expensive consequences. This device gives
companies a solution that is not only affordable but provides peace of mind
in securing mobile data,” said Vaughan Nankivell, Regional Manager- Australia
and New Zealand for Kingston Technology. “The DataTraveler Locker+ encrypts
100 percent of the contents and is available at a price point that is very attractive
for all entities looking to comply with corporate security policies.”<br/>
<br/>
Data on the Kingston DataTraveler Locker+ is secured with 256-bit hardware-based
AES encryption. Access to the drive’s contents is through a simple to
use interface requiring a complex password. The likelihood of successful brute
force attacks on the DataTraveler Locker+ is reduced as the drive locks down
and reformats after 10 incorrect password attempts.<br/>
<br/>
The 100 percent encrypted DataTraveler Locker+ ships in up to 32GB capacity.
For companies in need of a partitionable area on the USB drive for public sharing
(e.g., within an office setting), Kingston offers the DataTraveler Locker which
allows both a public and encrypted zone. Kingston also ships the DataTraveler
Vault – Privacy Edition for enterprise and government customers requiring
a speedier, more robust Flash drive. It is also waterproof and Trade Agreements
Act-compliant. Kingston DataTraveler USB drives are backed by a five-year warranty
and free tech support. For more information, visit <a href="#">www.kingston.com/anz</a><br/>
