Kingston Technology to showcase Virtualisation and Security Solutions for Enterprises at VM’08

London, UK, September, 2008Kingston Technology Europe Ltd., the independent world leader in memory products, announced that it will be showcasing its virtualisation and security solutions for the enterprise at VM’08, the UK’s first Virtualisation event. Kingston provides memory solutions that are high in quality and reliability; not only will Kingston Technology modules improve the performance of the hardware but they will allow the virtualisation software to run more efficiently, whilst reducing IT costs.

At VM’08 Kingston Technology will showcase a real life demo on the importance of memory as a hardware component and how installing larger memory modules can enhance existing hardware machines and enable more efficient virtualisation. Kingston Technology supports the move of corporate companies into virtualisation by offering system specific modules that are guaranteed to be compatible with any server. Kingston Technology memory modules are thoroughly tested by a patented process and are provided with free 24/7 technical support.

Kingston Technology have some of the most secure USB drives on the market, such as the Kingston Technology DataTraveler BlackBox and Vault Privacy Edition. These feature 100% automatic 256-bit AES hardware-based encryption, which is the same as used on many secure websites for credit card payments and can cost as little as £70 for 2 GB (capacities available up to 16 GB). Not only would it take a hacker more than a hundred trillion years to crack the code, those particular USB drives will completely erase the stored data after ten failed login attempts, meaning there would be no chance for the records to fall into the wrong hands. The Kingston Technology stand will also feature demonstrations on the importance of end user management via the use of Kingston Technology Secure USB drives that enable users to password protect their files on fully encrypted USB drives.
