Lockheed Martin teams with IronKey on USB drive
Lockheed Martin and IronKey have teamed up to create a new, ultra-secure USB drive called IronClad. The boot drive contains an operating system, programs and files, allowing users to plug it into any host PC and have access to their own desktop and files. There is no real need to access the host computer's hard drive, and the IronClad USB drive has 256-bit hardware-level encryption for protection from malware threats, including with rootkits.
IronKey intros S200 drive
IronKey on Monday announced the upcoming release of its S200 USB drive, which is being touted by the company as the most secure device of its kind. The S200 is the only USB key to meet FIPS 140-2, Level 3 validation for cryptographic modules mandated by government agencies. Otherwise, the S200 sports the same tamper-resistant body, self-destruction circuitry and hardware-based AES-256 encryption as other IronKey drives. The 16GB key can be set to restrict networks, making its content inaccessible on uncontrolled computers.
IronKey 8GB USB drive
IronKey on Thursday revealed a higher-capacity version of what it calls the world's most secure flash drive. Like all IronKey USB drives, the 8GB version is tamper resistant and features military-grade encryption software. The newest IronKey comes pre-loaded with portable Firefox, IronKey Password Manager, RSA SecurID and a Secure Sessions service. The included software allows for secure web browsing that works like an instant and portable VPN (virtual private network), among other secure actions.
