Survey on the use of USB drives – Help us make USB technology safer and WIN £100 worth of product!

For about fifteen years, USB drives have been used as compact and practical storage devices. However, their mobility can easily become a security risk when companies do not protect the devices properly. How easy is it for a USB drive to suddenly become inexplicably lost?

Kingston has been at the forefront of encrypted portable solutions for businesses since it launched its first DataTraveler encrypted USB Flash drive over 10 years ago. To find out more about how effectively mobile data is protected in businesses, they are conducting a survey on the use of USB drives. Participating in the survey will take only about 5 minutes. Of course, all your answers are anonymous and will be treated as confidential.

For this, we need your help!

Kingston are giving away 2x 16GB DataTraveler 2000 USB drives (retail price of around £100). The winners will be selected as part of a prize draw. In you wish to enter the prize draw and gain access to Kingston’s findings please submit your email address at the end of the survey.
