The premium USB Type-A Kingston IronKey Vault Privacy 50 series drives offer enterprise-grade security with FIPS 197 certified AES 256-bit hardware encryption in XTS mode. These drives also include protections against password brute force attacks and BadUSB with digitally-signed firmware. VP50 has undergone pen testing, or penetration testing, to ensure enterprise-grade security. The VP50 series is better at protecting data than accessing the internet and cloud services, since it offers encrypted storage under the user's physical control.
Admin, User, and One-Time Recovery multi-password choices are supported by Kingston IronKey Vault Privacy 50 USB Flash Drive in both Complex and Passphrase modes. This makes it easier to get back access to the data in the event that a password is lost. Passwords of six to sixteen characters using three of the four character sets can be created in traditional complex mode. A 10-to 64-character numeric PIN, phrase, series of phrases, or even lyrics can be entered in the new Passphrase mode. To enable data access again, the administrator can reset the user password or activate both the user and the One-Time Recovery password. The "eye" sign can be made to reveal the password entered, which can help with password entry and cut down on errors that result in unsuccessful login attempts. When ten consecutive erroneous passwords are entered, the brute force attack defence shuts out user or one-time recovery passwords. If the admin password is entered ten times in a row, the drive is crypto-erased.
Both Admin and User can configure the disc to write-protect in Read-Only mode, which guards against potential infection on untrusted computers. In addition, the virtual keyboard that comes built in protects passwords from keyloggers and screenloggers.
Through Kingston's Customisation Programme, organisations can customise and personalise VP50 series drives with a product ID (PID) for integration with common endpoint management software to satisfy corporate IT and cybersecurity requirements.
The Admin role can be used by small and medium-sized enterprises to manage their drives locally. For example, it can be used to configure or reset employee passwords for One-Time Recovery or Users, retrieve data from locked drives, and comply with legal requirements when forensics are needed.
Fast dual-channel performance is available on all capacities with Vault Privacy 50. The drive is made in the USA, meets TAA regulations, and has an IPX8 rating of 3 for waterproofness.

Hardware-encrypted USB Drive for Data Protection XTS-AES 256-bit encryption, approved by FIPS 197, protects sensitive data. Pen tests and built-in defences against brute force and BadUSB attacks provide enterprise-grade security.
Multiple Password Data Recovery Option with Kingston IronKey Vault Privacy 50 USB Flash Drive - Turn on the One-Time Recovery, Admin, and User passwords. To enable the user to access data again, the administrator can reset the user's password and generate a one-time recovery password. When ten wrong passwords are typed in a succession, the Brute Force attack protection shuts out user or one-time recovery credentials. If the admin password is entered ten times in a row, the drive is crypto-erased.
New Passphrase Mode for the Kingston IronKey Vault Privacy 50 USB Flash Drive
Choose the Passphrase or Complex password mode. Passphrases can range in length from 10 to 64 characters and can take the form of a PIN, a list of words, a sentence with space characters, or even lyrics.
Configuration for Dual Read-Only (Write-Protect)
A session-based read-only mode established by the user or admin, or a compulsory read-only mode set by the admin for the user, will help prevent malware attacks.
Handle Drives Locally for Small and Medium-Sized Businesses
When forensics are needed, use the Admin role to manage employee user and one-time recovery passwords locally, restore data access to locked drives, and abide by legal requirements.
