IronKeyTM Hardware Introduces the Latest Encrypted USB Devices


Imation Corp. is a worldwide information and data storage and security company that has recently announced continuous support for the newest McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator 5.1. software (provided by Intel Security) by releasing its server and client software, the new IronKey eUSB specifically designed for McAfee ePO. Companies of all sizes are invited to try out the ePolicy Orchestrator software and make compliance and risk management much simpler and significantly more successful by allowing them to keep up with the most innovative and the newest security measures. If IT administrators secure their desktops with ePolicy Orchestrator software, they will be able to easily control and manage what devices are being used. IronKey can be considered the only USB solution capable of offering hardware-encrypted storage devices manageable with the ePolicy Orchestrator software. The software is endowed with features like password resets, remotely disable or wipe lost or stolen devices, and the list can go on. The combination of the military-grade USB devices provided by IronKey and the ePolicy Orchestrator software allows users to efficiently protect desktops and other peripheral gadgets not only against data loss, but also against dangerous USB-related attacks (for example BadUSB).

Tom Fountain, Intel Security’s vice president of corporate development and strategy, highlighted that this new version of ePolicy Orchestrator has added numerous new abilities to the already existing platform. What’s more, this combination between ePolicy Orchestrator software and the hardware-encrypted USB drives produced by IronKey only means that their joint clients can enjoy the safest, managed data-transport solution currently available on the market.

The newest version of ePolicy Orchestrator comes with numerous security benefits, such as an improved disaster recovery, more efficient browser support and much more- thus transforming it into one of the best security management platforms that are currently available on the market.

According to Ken Jones, IronKey’s vice president of product management and engineering, the hardware-encrypted drives offered by IronKey can provide reliably safe end-points for governments and enterprises around the world. The drives are proved to be immune to the newest threats – such as BadUSB – that endanger the IT infrastructures. By using ePolicy Orchestrator to block other drives, users are locking down the end-points from similar dangerous threats.

Intel Security’s upgraded ePolicy Orchestrator software is currently available for clients using IronKey drives. This upgrade is available as well for legacy encrypted USB devices, that have been supported by IronKey since 2012.


Availability and Pricing

The IronKey eUSB for McAfee ePO works perfectly with IronKey F100, F150, and F200 flash drives. The software also works with IronKey H100 and H200 hard drives, along with older Imation and MXI drives, or certain hardware-encrypted McAfee drives. The existing clients of IronKey’s Encrypted USB for the ePolicy Orchestrator are allowed to upgrade to a support and maintenance contract that includes the upgraded software version for each device. Prices can vary by volume.
