Imation Expands IronKey Line of Secure USB Flash and Hard Drives

Imation Corp. (NYSE: IMN), a global scalable storage and data security company, today announced an expansion of the IronKey™ secure USB product line with new hardware encrypted flash and external hard disk drives. The IronKey D80 flash drives and H80 hard drives enable users to affordably comply with storage security mandates that do not require FIPS Certification. The new products feature tamper-resistant enclosures and hardware-based 256-bit AES encryption with strong authentication to reliably keep data private and secure.

Rising recognition of data security threats has expanded the need for secure portable USB drives beyond government, defense and regulated industries like healthcare and financial services. Many organizations are seeking smart, easy-to-use and highly secure solutions for employees to transport the information they need to be productive, while protecting private data, intellectual property and their brands.

Users that require the assurance of government and military level certification or centralized device management can choose IronKey’s FIPS 140 2 Level 3 validated S250 and D250 flash drives. IronKey D80 and H80 drives are ideal choices for organizations seeking compliance with most business policies and standards and who recognize the superior security offered by hardware encryption.

“Adding these new secure flash and hard disk drives to the IronKey portfolio extends our advanced security technology to meet the needs of an even broader number of users and organizations,” said Lawrence Reusing, Imation’s general manager for Mobile Security. “Organizations now have the flexibility to select the IronKey hardware encrypted drives that best balance their specific security, compliance and budget requirements.”

Features of the IronKey D80 and H80 drives include:

  • Advanced AES 256-bit encryption, the standard developed by the U.S. government to protect sensitive data;
  • “Always-on” hardware based encryption automatically protects all data that is saved to the device;
  • Automatically destroys its data after six failed login attempts;
  • Tamper resistant enclosures to protect data from damage and theft.

“Enterprise customers are looking to balance cost versus encryption features when it comes to securing their data and mitigating privacy risks," said Liz Conner, senior research analyst, IDC, Storage Systems and Personal Storage. "Imation’s IronKey encrypted drives present a unique solution for users wanting enterprise level security that satisfies compliance requirements, while remaining cost effective by offering the appropriate level of protection for their organization.”

“IT departments appreciate the advantages of having a mobile, connected workforce, but at the same time they fear the data security risks. According to a February 2013 Harris survey commissioned by Imation, fewer than half of IT decision makers feel confident in their data security once workers leave the building,” Reusing said. “These companies are looking to equip their workforces with portable data storage tools at the right security level for their organizations and users. Our IronKey portfolio now offers a range of options, all featuring IronKey security, reliability, ruggedness and ease of use.”
