Imation Showcases Secure Data Storage Portfolio at LandWarNet 2010
New Defender Collection(TM) Protects and Secures Critical Data Storage Assets; Meets International Encryption Standards
TAMPA, Fla., Aug 03, 2010 — Imation Corp. (NYSE: IMN) will showcase the industry’s broadest portfolio of secure data storage products at LandWarNet 2010 today through August 5 at the Tampa Convention Center. Sponsored by the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association (AFCEA), LandWarNet is the premier forum for bringing government and industry together to openly communicate best business practices and government implementations.
To enhance its portfolio and meet a significant market need in 2010, Imation has partnered with two security technology companies, MXI Security and ENCRYPTX Corp., and launched the Defender Collection line in May to protect data-at-rest on external hard drives, flash drives and optical media from electronic intruders.
Engineered to meet rigorous domestic and international encryption standards, the line is FIPS (Federal Information Processing Standards) 140-2 validated and compliant with the Trade Agreements Act (TAA), both key requirements for U.S. government users.
“Without adequate data security, confidential information can get into the hands of cyber criminals, putting people at risk of identity theft and leaving government organizations with costly consequences,” said Kevin Vlasich, cryptography and information security specialist, CISSP, Imation. “In fact, data breaches cost U.S. government agencies and public companies at least $45 billion annually. As the leader in data storage, Imation is in a unique position to extend its offerings into secure data storage products.”
The new portfolio includes flash drives, external hard drives, optical storage and software that prevent unauthorized access to confidential data and builds on Imation’s existing data storage protection offerings – including the DataGuard rf(TM) Tape Tracking System, DataGuard(TM) Transportation and Storage Cases, SecureScan for LTO tape cartridges and DataGuard GPS (available in Europe currently) – to help companies physically secure and protect their digital information.
In addition to the Defender Collection portfolio, Imation supports government IT professionals with a vast storage portfolio encompassing Solid State Disk (SSD) drive, removable and external hard drive, tape and flash products.
AFCEA International, established in 1946, is a non-profit membership association serving the military, government, industry, and academia as an ethical forum for advancing professional knowledge and relationships in the fields of communications, IT, intelligence, and global security.
