Hello and Welcome to IronKey.

If you have not already heard the good news, Kingston Digital has acquired the USB technology and assets of IronKey™ from Imation Corp. Kingston's goal is to ensure a smooth transition for existing IronKey customers and partners – enabling access to products, sales and world class technical support services. Kingston will also leverage its longstanding relationships with Flash memory semiconductors, controller partners and other component makers – as well as our strong channel presence – to bring IronKey products into the future.

In addition, encryption services leader DataLocker® Inc. has purchased the IronKey Enterprise Management Services (EMS) platform which provides centralized management to encrypted USB drives, and has also acquired the IronKey encrypted hard drive business. DataLocker® Inc. will continue to manage the SafeConsole® and Enterprise Management Services (EMS) platforms that both Kingston and IronKey managed encrypted drives utilize.

Serious Drives for
Safeguarding Serious Data


Take your personal information with you everywhere, safely and securely

IronKey Personal Features

Hardware Encryption ensures data stays safe, always

Protect your critical data with the IronKey™ Cryptochip that keeps encryption management on the device and enforces an authorized password to unlock data and applications on the encrypted flash drive. The IronKey Personal drives are FIPS 140-2 Level 3 validated with AES 256-bit hardware encryption, the strongest available to protect your sensitive data while meeting regulatory requirements.

Safeguard your Intellectual Property with protection that never sleeps

Self-defending IronKey Personal drives provide active protections against the spread of worms, malware and other malicious code. The device will permanently self-destruct after 10 consecutive incorrect password attempts, and a ruggedized, waterproof metal chassis resists physical break-ins and is tamper evident.

Manage and protect your online passwords

Manage all your authentication credentials such as login information to online accounts directly from the drive, and protect them using the same hardware encryption engine that guards your other data. The IronKey™ Identity Manager manages all of your online passwords with secure, one-click direct access and protection against keystroke-logging spyware and other online threats. With the click of a button, it automatically launches a specified application, fills in your username and password, and then logs you in. Use the IronKey Identity Manager to generate strong, complex passwords that are stored and managed without ever leaving the device. IronKey Personal devices come embedded with the Mozilla® Firefox® browser with an optional anonymous browsing feature.

Just plug in and go

No Windows administrative privileges required, and no software or drivers to install.


Extend the value of IronKey Personal S250 and D250 Flash Drives with optional features:

  • Encrypted password backup. Optional encrypted password backup to an Online Security Vault is available as an online service in case you forget yours. The service uses advanced mutual authentication technology to verify your identity so you can recover your device's password securely.
  • VeriSign® Identity Protection (VIP). The IronKey™ Identity Manager also supports VeriSign® Identity Protection (VIP), a strong authentication service used by financial and commerce websites.

Secure, Private Web Surfing

A secure, portable version of Mozilla Firefox is pre-loaded on your drive, letting you surf without worry and protecting your passwords whenever you go online. All your data, cookies, and Web history are maintained locally on the drive.

Take your portable applications with you

With up to 64GB of storage on the Imation D250 drive, there’s plenty of room to store and safely use portable applications so you can do what you want, when you want.

Physically hardened

Rely on a rugged metal casing built to protect against physical damage and internal components that are sealed to defend against tampering. It’s even passed and exceeded military waterproof testing requirements.

Built to last

Imation uses only the highest quality components, delivering 10 to 20 times the average memory lifespan of a traditional flash drive.

Choose the model that fits your needs

Two drive models allow you to deploy the right combination of performance, longevity and value to fit your mobile security needs.

  • High-performance and extra long-lasting IronKey Personal S250 drives are built to stand up to continuous use on the road. Dual-channel SLC flash memory delivers exceptional performance and longevity.
  • IronKey Personal D250 drives balance performance and value for users with average data access needs. Same great security as the S250, with dual-channel MLC flash memory for reliable read/write performance.

Take advantage of strong authentication

Every IronKey Personal drive is pre-configured with a client-side secure digital certificate and a PKCS #11 interface. This offers the ability to use your IronKey Personal drive for strong authentication and digital signing with participating websites and many Windows applications.
