Kingston IronKey Keypad 200 64GB Review

Rating: 8.0.

Kingston offers a range of secure drives with varying degrees of encryption in their IronKey product range and we've looked at a couple of them over the last few months. The latest drive to join the family is the Kingston IronKey Keypad 200 USB Flash Drive which is, according to Kingston “the industry’s first drive to deliver the latest FIPS 140-3 Level 3 security for your data”.

The IronKey Keypad 200 uses, as the name suggests, an alphanumeric keypad for easy-to-use PIN access. This keypad is OS-independent and it means that the drive can be used without resorting to using any software.

Currently, five models make up the IronKey Keypad 200 family; 8GB, 16GB, 32GB, 64GB (the drive we are reviewing here) and a flagship 128GB drive.  Kingston rates the performance of the drive as up to 145MB/s and 115MB/s for reads and writes respectively.

As well as the FIPS 140-3 Level 3 (Pending Certification), the drive also offers XTS-AES 256-bit hardware-based encryption, Brute Force and BadUSB attack protection and has IP57 certification.

Kingston back the IronKey Keypad 200 with a three-year warranty.
