In times when we save so much important data in digital media and leaks and cyber attacks happen, it is interesting to think of ways to protect our information.
Phishing attempts work through maliciously sent email
To do this, Kingston created the IronKey D300 Serialized (D300S), an encrypted USB key that encodes data and only allows access to its owner.
This is an updated version of the D300 version and brings new security enhancing features such as a virtual keyboard (to prevent anyone from using software to see what you have typed and discover your password), a barcode and a FIPS security certification. 140-2 level 3.
The older version was even awarded the Cyber Defense Global Awards 2018. The image below is one of the few released from the update and is next to an even safer version, the D300SM. The title IronKey D300 indicates the product family.
D300S encoding is 256-bit AES in XTS mode. About using barcodes for safety, Kingston explains:
IronKey D300S's unique serial number and barcode allow network administrators to identify the device without having to connect it to their computer, just by reading or scanning these codes.Kingston in press release
The USB stick that protects your information with password and other additional features, arrives in the Brazilian market later this year.
Kingston has not yet released high quality photos of the D300S version, but it appears to be quite physically similar to the previous one.
