Kingston DataTraveler Locker+ G3 32GB Review (Page 1 of 8) | APH Networks
What exactly is computer security? From an engineering perspective, encrypting your data with a strong key and a complicated algorithm ought to keep anyone away from your sensitive information. After all, if it takes a supercomputer a billion years to crack a 128-bit AES key, imagine what it takes to defeat something done with 256-bit AES encryption. In reality, as much as this sounds great on paper, this is certainly not the case. Regardless of how strong your security is, if someone comes up to me with a knife, and threatens me to give up my password, I would have done it in a heartbeat. But does this mean we should just leave everything out in the open? Probably not. In the same way we keep the front door of our houses locked, despite the fact someone can just break a window and get inside in about two minutes, sometimes we still take steps to prevent unintended audiences from getting a hold of your information. This is why my entire laptop is encrypted, just in case it gets stolen. The way I see it, this is just about being responsible with my data. Earlier last month, my colleague Aaron Lai tested out the Kingston DataTraveler Vault Privacy 3.0 32GB, an excellent hardware encrypted USB flash drive that delivers in both security an encryption for business users. Today, we will take a look at yet another hardware encrypted USB flash drive from the company, the DataTraveler Locker+ G3 32GB. Rather than focusing on business users, this sleek looking drive is made for consumers looking to be a little bit more responsible with the files they carry around. Being an update to the DataTraveler Locker+ G2 32GB I have reviewed last year, how much of a performance gain can we expect? We fired up our usual battery of benchmarks to find out.
