Imation Unveils First High-Security, High-Performance External Hard Drives for Enterprise and Government That Can Be Managed in the Cloud
IronKey™ Enterprise H300 USB 3.0 Hard Drive Employs Same Management Console as IronKey Enterprise Flash Drives and Secure Workspace Devices for Windows To Go
OAKDALE, Minn. — Imation Corp. (NYSE:IMN), a global data storage and information security company, today announced the first high-security, high-performance external USB 3.0 SuperSpeed hard drive capable of being managed in the cloud. Using a single centralized, cloud-based management console, enterprise and public sector IT administrators have visibility into IronKey Enterprise H300 hard drives as well as their IronKey Enterprise flash drives and IronKey secure workspace devices for Windows To Go. This console lets users customize security policies and deploy and manage protected portable devices across the enterprise. The IronKey Enterprise H300 features AES 256-bit hardware encryption with USB 3.0 SuperSpeed and a Section 508 compliant control panel that is available in eight languages, enabling the most demanding organizations and agencies to safeguard and secure up to 1TB of data. In addition, the IronKey Enterprise H300 uses the same technology as the company’s FIPS-certified flash drives and leverages the brand’s reputation for ruggedness and dependability with a five-year limited warranty.
“Our customers equate IronKey with security and now with IronKey’s Enterprise H300, they can continue to use the brand they trust to confidently store their most sensitive data,” said Ted Murphy, president, Matrix Mobile Security Solutions. “IronKey’s commitment to offering the latest in secure, military-grade hard drive technology at a competitive price point turns up the heat in the market. The ability to manage all IronKey devices from a single console in the cloud or on-premise provides our customers with added convenience and flexibility.”
IronKey Enterprise Management Service allows customers to easily establish a secure storage command center for administering and policing the use of IronKey encrypted drives. With Imation’s exclusive IronKey Silver Bullet Service and Active Malware Defense, IT professionals can centrally administer policies, re-commission devices that are no longer in use, and remotely wipe or disable lost or stolen drives. The IronKey Enterprise H300 is the only drive to offer secure password reset when a password is forgotten without erasing all the content on the drive. In addition, customers can manage the IronKey Enterprise H300 hard drives on-premise by using the IronKey Enterprise Management Server, which offers the same management features and benefits as the cloud-based version in an in-house solution.
“Our products use the exclusive IronKey Cryptochip to store user credentials and the encryption keys to avert even the most persistent hackers from getting access to the encrypted content on the drive,” said Mats Nahlinder, director of product management for IronKey by Imation. “Imation’s family of secure storage products provides our customers the best value in the market enabling them to enjoy the high-performance benefits of USB 3.0 technology, with the most secure solution that only IronKey can provide.”
Imation is also offering the IronKey Basic H300 USB 3.0 hard drive, which includes all the features of the enterprise version but without management. The IronKey Enterprise and IronKey Basic H300 are USB 2.0 compatible and provide support for complex and custom password policies, including length, special characters, expiration and more. The H300 hard drives are built to survive years of wear and tear.

The IronKey Enterprise and IronKey Basic H300 are immediately available through Imation Mobile Security channel partners. Pricing starts at $199 for 500GB and $249 for 1TB.
