“We are pleased and honored to have Cyber Defense Magazine recognize both D300S and KC2000 as essential pillars of a comprehensive data loss-prevention strategy,” said Richard Kanadjian, encrypted USB business manager, Kingston. “We believe that one of the keys to a successful data security plan and a way to lower the cost of a data breach is ensuring that data is encrypted and protected both inside the firewall, as well as outside. Both D300S and KC2000 are powerful tools in closing security gaps, and help ensure organization-wide security and compliance with regulations such as GDPR, HIPAA and many others.”

“CDM has evaluated nearly 3,000 companies globally, and we are proud to recognize Kingston Technology as an award-winning innovator and thought-leader within the industry,” said Pierluigi Paganini, editor-in-chief, Cyber Defense Magazine. “With cybercrime heading into the tens of billions of records stolen and potentially trillions of dollars in damages, Kingston Technology continues to push boundaries to stay one step ahead in a landscape of rising cyberthreats.”
