Microsoft's Wireless Desktop 2000 Comes With 128 Bit AES Encryption

Microsoft has launched its new Wireless Desktop 2000, a keyboard and mouse combo with advanced security features.

The combo, which can be purchased from the official Microsoft site, is currently priced at $40 and it is compatible with Windows 7, Windows Vista or Windows XP (excluding the 64 bit edition).

According to Microsoft, the new product will add an extra layer of security for its users thanks to Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) 128 bit encryption.

This is the same security standard used by the US government to ensure secured wireless connectivity for its sensitive departments.

The unique AES 128 bit encryption key has been designed to prevent the keystrokes of a wireless keyboard from being traced and deciphered by hackers, or malicious programs. Apart from this high security standard, the Wireless Desktop 2000 also includes a comfortable, pillow textured palm rest.

“The desktop is completed with a wireless, full-size mouse that features enhanced side grips, four-way scrolling and Blue Track technology. Not only is this desktop secure, comfortable and convenient – it’s simple to use—just plug in the transceivers and you’re ready to go!”, Microsoft bragged on the Wireless Desktop 200 product page.
