W700 Windows To Go USB Drive Recognized for Unmatched Security, Quality for Enterprise Use
OAKDALE, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep. 23, 2015-- Imation Corp. (NYSE:IMN), a global data storage and information security company, today announced its IronKey Workspace W700 device earned a Gold Stevie® Award in the Hardware - Computer & Peripheral category in The 13th Annual American Business Awards. Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word for “crowned,” the awards were presented to winners during a gala banquet on Friday, September 11, at the Julia Morgan Ballroom in San Francisco. More than 250 nominees and their guests attended for the presentation of new product awards, management awards, app awards, and more. More than 3,300 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories.
Stevie Award winners were selected by over 200 executives nationwide who participated in the judging process.
The IronKey Workspace W700 device was honored for its ability to equip employees, partners and contractors with a fast, full Windows 10 or Windows 8.1 desktop on a secure USB drive that boots from virtually any compatible PC, tablet or Mac computer. The PC on a Stick™ device represents an affordable laptop alternative — up to 95 percent savings compared to the cost of an individual laptop — and is ideal for supporting Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), outfitting contractors and mobile employees, or securing remote endpoints.
Leveraging an existing Microsoft infrastructure, IronKey Windows To Go devices secure data while letting IT centrally control access, even providing the ability to remotely wipe or disable lost or stolen drives. And because the Windows To Go environment boots directly off the IronKey drive and not from the host computer, users keep the integrity of their corporate workspace intact, making IronKey Workspace with Windows To Go a secure, high-performance solution for BYOD. The W700 is the first Microsoft Certified Windows To Go flash drive to receive FIPS 140-2 Level 3 certification and features XTS-AES 256-bit hardware encryption, Section 508 compliance and optional cloud-based or on-premises management.
“Being presented with this prestigious award is a testament to our unmatched standards for security, quality, innovation and customer satisfaction,” said Barbara Nelson, general manager and vice president at IronKey by Imation. “Enterprises need a secure, affordable solution to outfit their mobile employees and contractors with Windows workspaces. IronKey Windows To Go devices offer the most secure, manageable and cost-effective solution on the market.”
