Secure storage ready for Windows 10

Imation : 08 May, 2015  (New Product)
Windows 10 ready IronKey devices can now be configured and integrated in batches for easier deployment for secure enterprise storage
Secure storage ready for Windows 10

Imation has announced that its IronKey secure workspace devices are now fully Windows 10 ready. Imation’s new IronKey Workspace Command Line Utility provides the industry’s only solution for including hardware- and software-encrypted Windows To Go devices in regular desktop and laptop provisioning workflows. Enterprises can now use Batch and PowerShell script samples, thus simplifying integration into their device preparation and Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) workflows. This capability, when combined with the devices' small, light form factor, makes deployment of Windows To Go drives significantly easier and faster than regular desktop or laptop deployments.  IT can prepare hundreds of workspace devices at a time, install a Windows image and perform common post-provisioning tasks such as domain joins and OS updates. In addition, IronKey S/D250 and S1000 flash drives, H300 hard drives, and  W500, W700 and W700SC workspace devices are now Citrix-Ready certified, allowing IronKey products to meet the high demand for a safe platform to run Citrix, Office Online, VPN, Microsoft VDI and other cloud clients. This certification enables IT to securely manage the OS and hardware that access business applications in the cloud.

“Imation has the industry’s broadest mobile workspace PC on a Stick solutions and most extensive track record of enabling enterprises and government agencies to support an ever-increasing and diverse mobile workforce with this innovative technology,” said Ken Jones, vice president of engineering and product management for Imation Mobile Security. “Now with our Citrix certification, new scripting capabilities and Windows 10 readiness, our IronKey Windows To Go solution is truly unmatched.”

Windows To Go, a benefit available to Microsoft Volume licence customers, lets workers be productive from any location they choose by inserting the Windows To Go USB drive into any compatible PC, tablet or Mac.   With IronKey Workspace, users have access to their corporate image, applications and security policies, all stored on a secure flash drive - at savings of up to 90 percent compared to the cost of laptops.    And Imation makes it simple for users to use with the exclusive IronKey Startup Assistant which automatically configures the boot order of compatible host computers so they will boot first from the USB drive if one is present.  Imation is the single-stop shop for secure mobile workspaces that run Windows To Go.

The company is continuing its investment and innovation in Windows To Go devices by adding scriptable deployment capabilities to its IronKey Workspace Provisioning Tool, which allows simultaneous creation of 14 Workspace devices.  As a result, enterprises can easily incorporate hardware-encrypted IronKey Workspace W500 and W700 devices, as well as software-encrypted IronKey Workspace W300 devices, into their common device-preparation flows and treat an IronKey Workspace device deployment just as they would a laptop deployment.  IT users can provision a golden Microsoft image (WIM) and perform post-provisioning customisation such as domain joins, Windows updates, support for local languages or any other necessary customisation.  This new capability further simplifies and more fully integrates Windows To Go device deployment for enterprises that script the preparation and deployment of their laptops and desktops.

As part of its Workspace device updates, Imation  has extended its Workspace W700 product by adding the W700SC device with support for CAC and PIV standard Smart Cards for US Federal and local government agencies. In addition, IT administrators can now use Silver Bullet functionality in combination with IronKey Enterprise Management to securely unlock a user's remote device and thus recover files from devices with corrupt OS or perform other maintenance tasks.

Citrix Certification allows businesses to use IronKey Workspace devices as more secure and manageable endpoints for key applications. Workspace users can now run both online and full versions of Office 365-provided applications or just VPN clients. IronKey PC on a Stick allows IT managers to provide the full benefits of Windows, including all required corporate applications and end-point protections from malware, keyboard logging and other threats, while at the same time giving users the familiar Windows environment they desire.
