Kingston DataTraveler Locker+ G2 32GB USB Flash Drive
5 April 2013
Conclusion: Even if you have nothing top secret stored inside your USB flash drive, I think it is perfectly reasonable to be concerned about the risk as any personal data leaves your house. If you understand what I am talking about, then you will understand why the Kingston DataTraveler Locker+ G2 32GB is one of my favorite USB flash drives to ever come across my desk here at APH Networks. Sure, it may not be the fastest -- not by a long shot.
Summary: When it comes to the Kingston DataTraveler Locker+ G2 owning and operating a secure flash drive could not be any easier. Upon placing the drive into your open USB port for the first time, the included software walks you step-by-step. The only thing you have to do is remember the password. Granted, if you forget your password and try to enter the incorrect password or mis-key it ten times the drive will erase itself. This is a safeguard to protect you and your data.
Conclusion: The test system used in this review was an HP dc7900. The computer came equipped with an Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 3.0GHz CPU, 2GB of DDR2 800MHz memory, Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3250310AS 250GB SATA hard drive, NVIDIA Quadro FX570 256MB PCIe graphics card and Intel 82567LM-3 gigabit network card. For the operating system, I installed a fresh copy of Windows 7 Enterprise.
Pros: Mandatory security on all files, Hardware based 256-bit AES encryption, Includes "lockdown" mode for increased security, Compatible with Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7 and Mac OS X, Five year warranty, Reasonably priced

Excerpt: The ability to carry sensitive data from point A to point B has become an increasingly difficult thing to do. Not all that long ago you could simply put your data on a floppy disk or CD/DVD-ROM and head to your destination. Now, with the increasing occurrence of theft, data breaches, and outright carless loss of items while traveling that option is just gone. So how do you get your sensitive data between stops?
Excerpt: Kingston DataTraveler Locker+ G2 Review - Like to store your important documents, presentations, product sales report, or some private photos of yourselves (ahem) in your USB flash drive? There are times when you simply have to copy these files into a USB flash drive to be carried on a product launch event or a meeting. Problem is, what if you accidentally drop it on the road? How can you stop the peeping Toms to have access to your privacy?
Summary: If you want an added bit of security and will only be using Windows machines, the DataTraveler Locker isn't a bad choice. Still, for max portability and speed, we'd be suggesting a non-secure USB 3.0 drive along with something like TrueCrypt.
Pros: Software-based encryption means the non-encrypted partition is viewable on all operating systems, file system willing, Impressive sequential and 4K random read speeds, Five-year warranty
Cons: Encrypted partition is viewable under Windows only
