Imation Corp has launched IronKey S250 and D250, two hardware-encrypted flash drives. The new models feature improved remote management capabilities, a high-security design, faster performance and a redesigned control panel.The drives are available in various editions – Basic, Personal and Enterprise – each one being specially designed for a particular customer category.
All the products offer protection against data loss, being developed in accordance with the Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2 standard.
The Personal and Enterprise versions also feature an identity protection mechanism that protects users’ personal information while performing online tasks. User passwords can be stored in the IronKey password vault.
Another noteworthy feature is the remote management capability which allows customers to remotely recover, reset and force the devices into read-only mode from Imation’s cloud security service.
As far as physical protection is concerned, the aluminum enclosure is designed to allow users to easily recognize any attempt to compromise the device.
“While organizations are realizing the advantages of a mobile workforce, they are also coming to grips with vulnerabilities caused by lost or stolen data,” said Lawrence Reusing, Imation’s general manager for Mobile Security.
“Imation has developed its new IronKey S250 and D250 offerings to provide choices for organizations around the world whose employees need to transport and access data remotely, while enhancing security, performance and reliability.”
