Kingston Upgrades the IronKey D300 Encrypted USB

No comments

Kingston Technology, a world leader in memory products and technology solutions, has added new features to its recent Cyber Defense 2018 Global Awards winning IronKey D300 encrypted USB Flash drive to improve device management and security. A new Serialized version (D300S) with two new features will further enhance the drive’s already advanced level of security to safeguard sensitive data.

IronKey D300S will have a unique serial number and bar code on the drive itself, allowing network administrators to simply read or scan the code instead of plugging in the drive. When a drive is deployed, returned or during any physical auditing or asset management of hardware, this feature will make the process more efficient and streamlined. The second feature, a virtual keyboard, enables users to enter a password with clicks of the mouse instead of using a physical keyboard, thereby providing a greater level of protection against any possible keylogging when using D300S on other computers.

The new Serialized drives will also be available as a Managed model1 (D300SM) that requires IronKey EMS or SafeConsole® by DataLocker³ allowing central management of drive access and usage across thousands of drives. This will be the first IronKey drive that will now be supported on SafeConsole, allowing it to be used by customers who already have it installed. IronKey D300SM will be available Q1 2019.

“We’re not content on standing pat with any of our products, no matter how good they are,” said Kingston “The data protection provided by IronKey D300 is already top notch, and we’ve listened to requests from our customers. These two enhancements in the D300 series add to its industry-leading data-protection capabilities. With Kingston’s 30-plus years of expertise in quality technology solutions behind it, along with the latest NAND Flash memory and controller technology, users of any D300 drive can rest assured that their confidential data and information are well protected from the risks and threats associated with loss, theft, or stolen digital devices.”

Combined with the color “tough black”, it demonstrates a striking sports style. The four corners are smoothly rounded to provide a buffer effect during falls or strong impacts. The leather texture on both sides is not only used to bring the appearance and anti-slip functions to the next level, but also resists scratches or fingerprints, effectively reducing the damage caused by friction. Additionally, the unique internal suspension structure can reduce vibrations while minimizing the impacts caused by accidental movements. AC633 possesses both inner and external protections, enabling the perfect protection for your precious memories!

Passed the 10,000 Times Plug/Unplug Test

Killer Messages on the PlayStation 4 and How to Deal with Them

No comments

Turns out, though, sending a short message (any piece of text followed by a special Unicode character and the heart emoji) to this messenger is enough to send the poor PS4 into an infinite reboot loop.

Reddit users first drew attention to the issue, after which it was picked up by news media. The worst thing is that the message doesn’t even need to be opened. When it is received, first the controller stops responding, then the sound switches off, and finally, the console crashes and starts rebooting endlessly. Players who get one of these messages at a crucial moment in a game probably won’t be jumping for joy.

But there’s good news. First, Sony confirms that it has already fixed the error so the next firmware update should be the end of it.

Second, even if your console got stuck in a cyclic reboot, it can be restored to life. To do so, Kaspersky Lab suggests the following steps:
  1. Install the PS Messages app on your phone (Android or iOS).
  2. Delete the malicious message using the PS Messages mobile app.
  3. On the console, start up in Safe Mode (here’s how) and select Rebuild Database (option 5).
  4. Now, the console should start as if nothing had happened.
One last thing. Even if you haven’t encountered this problem yourself, you can take preemptive action to make sure you never do. To do so:
  1. Go to the console settings.
  2. Select Account Management > Privacy Settings. At this point, a password is required.
  3. Select Messages, followed by Friends or No One in the drop-down menu.
  4. Now, strangers will not be able to send you messages, killer or otherwise. Better safe than sorry.
