Increased 64 GB Storage Capacity and New Software Tools Help Organizations Better Protect Data at Rest
SAN FRANCISCO (Feb. 14, 2011) – Imation Corp. (NYSE: IMN), a leading global technology company dedicated to helping people and organizations store, protect and connect with their digital world, today introduced the latest expansion to its award-winning Defender Collection™ portfolio at the 2011 RSA Conference held this week at the Moscone Center. To meet the rapidly growing need for data-at-rest security solutions, Imation is unveiling 64 gigabyte capacities of its Defender F100, F150 and F200 +Biometric Flash Drives in booth number 1132. The company also is showcasing new security management software options. These enhancements help small- to medium-sized businesses where data security is paramount – sectors such as government, healthcare, retail and financial services – better manage the risks and responsibilities of increasing data growth and portability.
Part of the full line of Imation’s Defender Collection secure data storage solutions, the Defender F200 +Biometric Flash Drive is engineered to meet and exceed the most advanced international standards for data encryption. A fast and efficient hardware-dedicated security processor provides advanced portable security through FIPS (Federal Information Processing Standards) 140-2, Level 3 validated AES 256-bit hardware encryption, authentication, manageability and biometrics. The advanced security features of the F200 include an ergonomic swipe sensor for two-factor authentication with strong password and/or biometric fingerprint identification. It also provides protection against malware in virtually any environment, securing users’ digital information. Housed in a rugged metal casing, the F200 is tamper resistant, crush resistant, waterproof and dustproof, designed to meet many international military and International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) specifications.
“Imation’s Defender Collection provides businesses and government agencies with the added versatility and functionality that is needed to protect critical data,” said Jason Elles, Imation brand manager. “With the average U.S. data breach costing companies $6.6 million, risk-intensive organizations are rapidly adopting the use of portable data defense. The Defender Collection offers the necessary tools to secure sensitive data.”
In addition to the F200 flash drive, Imation recently announced the Defender Collection Software Suite. Defender Collection software offers government agencies, health care industry, financial services, and small- to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) the ability to customize and enforce device authentication and security policies, and the capability to deploy and manage any removable storage device. The Defender Collection Software Suite offers robust reporting, as well as the ability to recover passwords, manage keys and remotely disable devices that are lost or stolen.
Launched in mid 2010, the Imation Defender Collection offers the industry’s broadest portfolio of products to secure data at rest stored on portable devices and media.
