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.
