Imation Corp. announced ongoing support for the latest McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) software version 5.1 from Intel Security with the release of its client and server software, IronKey eUSB for McAfee ePO. Organizations of all sizes can look to ePolicy Orchestrator software to make risk and compliance management simpler and more successful by helping them keep up with the latest security measures. By securing the desktop with ePolicy Orchestrator software, IT administrators can manage and control what devices are used. IronKey is the only USB solution to offer hardware-encrypted storage devices that can be managed with ePolicy Orchestrator software, which has features such as password reset, the ability to remotely wipe or disable devices that are lost or stolen, and more. The combination of IronKey’s military-grade USB devices integrated with ePolicy Orchestrator software helps protect desktop and peripheral devices against data loss and USB-related attacks such as BadUSB. The latest version of ePolicy Orchestrator software extends security benefits by improving disaster recovery, browser support and more—making it one of the most advanced security management platforms available. The upgrade for ePolicy Orchestrator software by Intel Security is now available for customers using IronKey drives. The upgrade is also available for users of legacy encrypted USB devices, which IronKey has supported since 2012. This upgrade also adds client support for Windows 8/8.1. Once the management server is updated the new software is transparently pushed to clients, making the transition seamless.

Imation Corp Launches Golden IronKey Program
Apr 8 15
Imation Corp. announced the Golden IronKey program. In addition to providing enterprises and government agencies around the world with the most secure flash drive, IronKey has reached a major milestone with more than two million devices sold. To commemorate this milestone, IronKey is launching the Golden IronKey Program, which includes giving away 1,000 golden encrypted flash drives. The limited-edition golden drives will be awarded to top customers and to channel champions that have secured the biggest customer deals. The company will also be offering the special drives to qualified prospects who are participating in marketing promotions such as trade shows, CrowdChats and other marketing activities. Embedded systems security has come under scrutiny with the recent rise in USB-related attacks from BadUSB and the Equation Group. Both attacks altered devices at the firmware level, making them undetectable by normal antivirus and anti-malware software. IronKey has built its products with a security-first mentality that includes both the hardware and firmware. This discipline includes standard features such as firmware signing, which protects all IronKey devices against malware, physical tampering and advanced threats such as BadUSB and the Equation Group.
