<p>Sydney, Australia – 5 February 2008 –Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced the release of the DataTraveler® 400 (DT400), a new USB Flash drive preloaded with MigoSync data synchronization software from Migo Software, Inc., that allows users to work among multiple PCs by directly synchronizing files, email and Internet browser settings onto the drive.</p>
<p>“The DT400 is the perfect solution to keep documents and settings completely up-to-date and in sync,” said Vaughan Nankivell, regional manager, Australia/New Zealand, Kingston. “Accessing email and keeping sections of the drive secure through password protection make the DT400 a powerful device for anyone to stay safely connected with work or home while on the go,” added Nankivell.</p>

In addition to standard file synchronization, MigoSync also comes with Universal Mail Format1, which enables a user to access email on a guest PC, even when it does not support the user’s primary email application for formats including Windows Mail, Outlook, Outlook Express or Lotus Notes. The drive’s built-in SecureTraveler2 software allows the creation of a ‘Privacy Zone,’ whereby a user creates and maintains a password-protected area of the drive to keep data safe.</p>
