WHY IRONKEY

IronKey™ by Imation: The Industry’s Most Comprehensive Mobile Security Suite

A trusted brand

Imation created the industry’s most comprehensive mobile security suite in 2011 when it formed Imation Mobile Security (IMS). IMS combined the technology breakthroughs, intellectual property, expertise and thought leadership of three respected industry leaders -- IronKey™, MXI Security™, and ENCRYPTX™ -- and forged them into solutions that secure data, identities and workspaces.

IMS has unified this extraordinary mix of assets under the IronKey by Imation brand. This brand leverages two of the most trusted and recognized names in security and scalable storage, and underscores the emphasis IMS places on innovation.

A quarter-century of invention

Between them, IronKey, MXI Security and ENCRYPTX collectively represent a quarter-century of mobile security R&D and technology breakthroughs. They include:

  • From MXI, the first USB hardware device with biometric authentication and military-grade encryption.
  • From IronKey, the first cloud-based management platform for secure USB drives.
  • From ENCRYPTX, groundbreaking solutions for encrypting endpoints and protecting PCs.
