Kingston has really pulled out all the stops with the DataTraveler Secure. The name says it all, Secure. You are given 2 types of data protection. The titanium-coated stainless steel casing will protect your drive from accidental drops. The drive is also waterproof up to 4 feet so you don't have to worry about getting it wet. You are then given 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) hardware-based encryption which will protect your important files from anyone who happens to pickup your flash drive.
The MyDataZone software is very easy to setup and configure. It takes around 2 minutes to setup your privacy zone. Once your privacy zone is setup you can switch back a fourth between the private and open parts of the drive. The MyTraveler software is also a nice addition. It allows you to synchronize folders and enable write protection on the drive.
The drive's speed is also very fast. I had no trouble streaming movies and listening to music from the drive. It is much faster compared to the Corsair drive we tested it against. Now I have been using that Corsair drive for some time, but now it has been replaced with the DataTraveler Secure. There are a few reasons for that, it is 2GB instead of 1GB, and it offers a privacy zone so I don't have to worry about transporting important files, finally it is faster than the Corsair drive. Overall ThinkComputers gives the Kingston DataTraveler Secure 2GB Flash Drive a 10 out of 10 score and our Recommended Award!
