Imation Expands IronKey Secure USB Drive Product Line

Data security company Imation has expanded its IronKey secure USB product line with new hardware encrypted flash and external hard disk drives.

Data security company Imation has expanded its IronKey secure USB product line with new hardware encrypted flash and external hard disk drives.

The IronKey D80 flash drives and H80 hard drives feature tamper-resistant enclosures and hardware-based 256-bit AES encryption with strong authentication, as well as a protection mechanism that automatically destroys data after six failed login attempts.

“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, in a statement. “Organizations now have the flexibility to select the IronKey hardware encrypted drives that best balance their specific security, compliance and budget requirements.”

IRONKEY™ D80 HARDWARE ENCRYPTED FLASH DRIVE“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,” he added. “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.”

According to Imation, users that need 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 (Left) 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.

 “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, in a statement. “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.”

Imation’s IronKey D80 flash drives and H80 hard drives are compatible with Windows and Mac computers and are available worldwide through Imation’s channel partners as well as the Imation Mobile Security Store.

The IronKey D80 encrypted flash drives are offered in 4GB, 8GB, 16GB and 32GB capacities at manufacturer prices ranging from $49 to $240. The IronKey H80 encrypted external hard drives are being sold in 500GB or 1TB capacities, with manufacturer’s list prices starting at $199 and reaching $250. Reseller prices may vary.
