1,000 Golden IronKey Encrypted Flash Drives to Be Awarded to Top Customers, Channel Partners and Prospects via Various Marketing Promotions
OAKDALE, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr. 8, 2015-- Imation Corp. (NYSE: IMN), a global data storage and information security company, today announced the Golden IronKey program. In addition to providing enterprises and government agencies around the world with the industry’s 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.
“We’ve earned the trust of our customers and partners in more than 50 countries by securing them against the risks that arise when unsecured USB drives are allowed inside the network,” said Barbara Nelson, general manager and vice president of Imation Mobile Security (IronKey). “The Golden IronKey program was developed to honor their vision and understanding of the risks as well as to raise general industry awareness and to help companies avoid falling victim to the next Equation Group.”
