The Kingston IronKey has won two 2018 “Govies” Government Security awards for:

The D300 is known for it’s high standard of security, speed and performance. It utilises FIPS 140-2 Level 3 and 256-bit AES hardware-based encryption in XTS mode.

It is also immune to BadUSB because it uses digitally signed firmware.

In addition to this, it also makes sure that only strong passwords can be used in order to prevent unauthorised access.

The Kingston IronKey D300 also uses 100% self-contained encryption and decryption – meaning there’s no trace left on the host system.

It even reformats after 10 invalid password attempts to protect against brute force password guesses.

The IronKey D300 was also recognised and won the Platinum “ASTORS” Award for Best Data Storage Security Solution in 2017.
