<strong>Sydney Australia</strong> – <strong>(May 18, 2009)</strong> –
Kingston Technology Co., Inc., the independent world leader in memory products,
announced today that its DataTraveler Vault – Privacy Edition (DTVP) USB

“Our DataTraveler Vault – Privacy Edition has been popular with
enterprise and government customers who use Windows-based systems and are looking
for a safe and secure way to transport portable data,” said Vaughan Nankivell,
Regional Manager- Australia and New Zealand for Kingston Technology. “We
are happy to add Mac support to this 100-percent secured drive so the Apple
community can be assured they have an on-the-go storage solution that is the
best on the market at safeguarding data.”<br/>
Data onboard the DTVP is secured by hardware-based, on-the-fly, 256-bit Advanced
Encryption Standard (AES). The drive has fast data transfer rates and is protected
from brute-force attacks by locking down after 10 unsuccessful login attempts.
After lockdown, a reformat is necessary to make the Flash drive operable again.
For additional protection, the DTVP is made of aluminum and is waterproof up
to a depth of four feet.<br/>
