Just this June, Imation has announced the release of the high-security and high-performance IronKey H350. It’s the only USB 3.0 hard drive currently available in the market to achieve FIPS 140-2 Level 3 validation, meeting the most stringent 256-bit encryption requirements mandated for government agencies, defense contractors, financial services, and healthcare. The aforementioned agencies and enterprises can rest assured that the entire drive—and not just its encryption components—is compliant with the said strict standard, allowing it to be shielded from major threats such as BadUSB and the Equation Group. Simply put, users don’t have to worry about losing sensitive data.
The Ironkey H350 has two variants: basic and enterprise. The basic version is encased in a tamper-resistant, ultra-durable aluminium housing that features AES-XTS 256-bit hardware encryption. Again, it boasts of the performance of a USB 3.0 and a Section 508-compliant control panel localized for eight languages. On the other hand, the enterprise version has all the features of the basic offering plus an on-premises or cloud-based management console that allows IT to customize security policies and manage protected portable devices across the organization. This management system also has the capability to remotely delete or destroy a lost/stolen drive, as well as providing a secure password reset mechanism that enables users to recover data without erasing the contents on a device or using a backdoor to reset the password. To further stress the brand’s commitment to customer satisfaction, both variants of the IronKey 350 come with a five-year warranty.
