Kingston shows off new IronKey USB-C Vault Privacy 50C drive

Kingston Vault Privacy 50C drive

At the 2023 Consumer Electronics Show, Kingston Technology launched its new hardware-encrypted IronKey drive to help protect your data.

The new Kingston IronKey was debuted in Las Vegas that the company says will help protect data against BadUSB and Brute Force attacks. The new Vault Privacy 50C (IKVP50C) drive is FIPS 197 Certified and XTS-AES 256-bit hardware-encrypted.

It has multi-password options including complex or passphrase modes. This allows users to set a phrase with spaces or a list of words as the password that is easy for them to remember but harder for hackers to guess.

The drive has a metal body with a vivid blue hue and comes in a 256GB capacity. Pricing was not readily available.
