OAKDALE, Minn. -- February 26, 2013

Imation Corp. (NYSE: IMN), a global scalable storage and data security
company, today announced that it will be demonstrating IronKey™ Workspace W500
during the RSA Conference 2013 at Imation’s booth #2425. The IronKey Workspace
W500 devices will help companies address both their teleworking needs and
their compliance requirements, via enhanced security features including
hardware encryption, a rugged metal enclosure and additional security and
management options. The IronKey Workspace W500 has passed the Windows Hardware
Certification Kit for Windows 8-compatible drives.

Imation’s IronKey Workspace family currently includes the Windows To Go
certified IronKey Workspace W300, which features high speed and performance
with Windows BitLocker Drive Encryption. Having passed the Windows Hardware
Certification Kit for Windows To Go compatible drives, the IronKey Workspace
W500 is currently undergoing Microsoft Corp.’s rigorous Windows To Go
certification process. Following certification, the drives will be available
via Imation Mobile Security channel partners.

IronKey Workspace W500 will feature IronKey hardware encryption and a
ruggedized metal casing; and options for mass provisioning and device
management. The IronKey Workspace W500 also will offer an optional crossover
storage feature, which allows the device to be used also as traditional
encrypted security-enhanced flash drive, eliminating the need for a second
encrypted drive for data transfer.

“Any time you’re transporting data, it’s critical to consider security,” said
Lawrence Reusing, Imation’s general manager for Mobile Security. “While
standard certified Windows To Go devices feature BitLocker drive encryption,
Imation’s W500 workspace will incorporate valuable advanced security features
to strengthen protection of critical data, while taking full advantage of the
mobility and flexibility of Windows To Go.”

With the continued upsurge in mobile workers, BYOD (bring your own device),
and contract employees, companies are coming to grips with a new set of
security challenges with corporate data being accessed virtually anytime from
anywhere and mobile workers demanding usability as if they are still at their
desktop. IronKey Mobile Workspace solutions give IT departments the ability to
provide access to a full PC with full functionality, control over deployed
environments and enhanced security for user data and the environment.

“The typical flash drive is not designed for the intense level of performance
required to run your PC on a Stick, whereas the high performance, enhanced
security and rugged construction of IronKey Workspace drives is specifically
designed to deliver a fast, smooth Windows 8 Enterprise desktop experience on
a wide range of compatible PC devices,” Reusing said.
