IronKey H350 Is a High-Security, High-Performance, Centrally Managed USB Drive Safe from Targeted Attacks Such as BadUSB and Equation Group
OAKDALE, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun. 10, 2015-- Imation Corp. (NYSE:IMN), a global data storage and information security company, today announced the new IronKey H350 USB 3.0 hard drive. The IronKey H350 is the only USB 3.0 hard drive to achieve FIPS 140-2 Level 3 validation (certification #2359) to meet the most stringent 256-bit encryption requirements mandated for government agencies, defense contractors, and healthcare and financial-services enterprises. With this high-security, high-performance USB hard drive, government agencies and enterprises can have the assurance that the entire drive – not just its encryption components – is compliant with this standard, keeping it safe from targeted attacks such as BadUSB and Equation Group.
The H350 comes in two versions – Basic and Enterprise – offering organizations and agencies a choice for their mobile security needs. The IronKey Basic H350 is encased in a tamper-resistant, high-strength aluminum enclosure and features AES-XTS 256-bit hardware encryption, USB 3.0 performance and a Section 508-compliant control panel localized for eight languages. The IronKey Enterprise H350 includes all the same features plus an on-premises or cloud-based management console that lets IT customize security policies and deploy and manage protected portable devices across the enterprise. The management system can remotely wipe or destroy a lost or stolen device and also provides the only secure password reset mechanism that allows users to recover data without erasing the contents on the drive or using a backdoor to reset the password. In addition, the IronKey H350 backs up the brand's reputation for ruggedness and dependability with a five-year warranty.
"With the BadUSB attack, the spotlight is on USB-related threats," said Ken Jones, IronKey vice president of engineering and product management. "These recent attacks highlight the importance of allowing only secure devices to access company networks and data. All IronKey products, including the H350 hard drives, feature firmware signing that makes them immune to these new types of threats, so enterprises and agencies can reliably protect sensitive data.”
