Kingston Technology DataTraveler Vault Privacy Edition now Mac compatible

Kingston Technology Co., Inc., has announced today that its DataTraveler Vault – Privacy Edition (DTVP) USB Flash drive is now compatible with Apple Mac operating systems (OSX 10.4x – 10.5x).

“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.”

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 4 feet (up to 4 ft.; conforms to IEC 60529 IPX8. Product must be clean and dry before use).
