Imation Wins Tekne Award for Secure Mobile Storage Innovation
Award recognizes innovative solutions for protecting data on portable devices
OAKDALE, Minn., Nov 04, 2011 — Imation Corp. (NYSE: IMN), a leading global technology company dedicated to helping people and organizations store, protect and connect their digital world, was presented a 2011 Tekne Award for its Defender Collection software suite. The Tekne award recognizes Minnesota companies and individuals for superior technology innovation and leadership.
Imation’s Defender Software Suite is a multi-tiered software solution that enables organizations to customize and enforce device authentication and security policies, and to deploy and manage removable storage devices without purchase of new hardware.
“Imation is honored to be recognized as a Tekne Award winner,” said Subodh Kulkarni, Imation’s CTO and Senior Vice President for OEM and Emerging Businesses. “The award recognizes Imation’s growing position as one of the industry’s leading innovators in the secure mobile storage space.”
After introducing its Defender Collection hardware portfolio in 2010, Imation made three strategic acquisitions in the growth market for high security portable storage hardware and management solutions: ENCRYPTX, MXI Security and the IronKey secure storage hardware business.
“By bringing these businesses together as the Imation Mobile Security unit, customers now can turn to Imation for what we see as the industry’s most complete solution set for organizations that need secure mobile data solutions,” Kulkarni said.
Presented by the Minnesota High Tech Association (MHTA), the Tekne Awards annually recognize Minnesota’s best and brightest technology users and developers in innovation, development, education, commercialization and management.
