The IronKey S1000 is the latest member of Imation's family of hardware-encrypted flash drives.
It is said to twice as fast as other hardware-encrypted USB 3.0 flash drives with read speeds up to 400 MBps and write speeds up to 300 MBps, and with a maximum of 128GB of storage it delivers at least twice the capacity of previous IronKey drives.
Data is protected with National Institute of Standards and Technology approved XTS-AES 256-bit encryption, and the drive is certified to meet the requirements of FIPS 140-2 Level 3.
Imation also notes that the S1000 is protected against attacks such as BadUSB that attempt to reprogram the drive's firmware.
It comes in two versions, the IronKey Basic S1000 and - for organisations that require centralised management - the IronKey Enterprise S1000 which from early in the second quarter will work with the cloud-based IronKey Enterprise Management Service.
"The increasing need for employees to work remotely has created problems for IT," said IronKey vice president of engineering and product management Ken Jones.
"Employees want, and need, access to their data regardless of location. The challenge, especially for highly regulated industries such as healthcare, is how to keep that data safe when according to research the majority of data breaches result from physical loss or theft of devices.
"IronKey's highly secure, managed USB drives provide the mobility features – including performance, durability, and capacity – needed to enable a productive mobile workforce while ensuring the security of the organisation's data."
Pricing starts at $191 for 4GB. A lifetime warranty is provided for S1000 drives, which Imation claims to be an industry first.
