Kingston has added another member to its DataTraveler family with the new DataTraveler Secure. Aside the normal protection against unauthorized viewers courtesy of 256-bit AES hardware encryption, the DataTraveler Secure is water resistant up to four feet of water, keeping it safe from accidental spills and even being soaked in the rain. This means you can still salvage your data should the DataTraveler Secure ever end up in the toilet bowl by accident. Kingston decided to go ahead with a metal case for this new USB 2.0 drive. Read and write speeds are rated at 24MB/s and 10MB/s respectively. The new DataTraveler Secure drives come in 512 MB, 1GB, 2GB and 4GB.
