Patent-Pending Technology Prevents USB AutoRun Worms from Infecting Corporate and Government Networks
Unlike other USB flash drives and memory sticks, IronKey devices are intelligent, secure storage devices with on-board security co-processors, which allows IronKey devices to provide active anti-malware protection. IronKey Enterprise devices are managed remotely, and IronKey provides regular, automated security and anti-malware updates over the Internet or corporate network. IronKey devices are FIPS 140-2, Level 2 validated, ensuring the highest levels of compliance with government security regulations. IronKey devices are available in 1GB, 2GB, 4GB and 8GB storage capacities.
The patent-pending USB AutoRun anti-worm malware protection is available immediately on newly purchased IronKey Basic, Personal and Enterprise devices. Existing customers of IronKey Personal and Enterprise devices can remotely update their software and firmware to add this critical new security capability to their devices.
IronKey performed a multi-year contract with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Science & Technology Directorate to develop Next-Generation Crimeware Defense technologies. As part of this research, IronKey built a comprehensive malware analysis laboratory, and analyzed tens of thousands of different malware samples to develop threat models and prevention strategies. It is this deep background and ongoing malware research that has allowed IronKey to develop the industry's most comprehensive malware protection for removable USB storage devices.
