Imation Showcases Unified Security Solutions
For Mobile Data, Identity and workspaces
Imation Corp. announced its unified Secure Data, Identity and
Mobile Workspace product set.
data security solutions help organizations
deliver secure mobility for their workforces, benefiting from greater worker
flexibility, while delivering the high level of security, compliance and
management control over a range of USB devices and removable media.
With this solution
set, Imation brings together a combination of encrypted USB storage devices and
media, encryption and encryption key management; authentication technology;
device and policy management software; and mobile workspace solutions.
Cost, complexity, and inconvenience have
restrained IT implementation and worker adoption of secure mobile storage.
With its recent acquisitions, Imation is positioned to offer a unified offering
that satisfy organizations' growing requirements for encrypted USB storage,
strong user authentication, secure identity management, and secure mobile
workspaces through a simple end-user device plug-in.
Research has shown that more than 50
percent of employees use portable devices to take confidential data out of their
business daily. And, according to a Ponemon Institute study, 75 percent of
organizations have suffered data loss from negligent or malicious insiders.
Imation's security offering protects against data loss and supports compliance
strategies, providing users secure and convenient access to their data and
applications wherever they are.
This announcement is a result of the company's integration
of data security assets. In 2011, as part of its strategic focus on the data
security market, Imation acquired certain assets of ENCRYPTX and MXI Security,
and the secure hardware business of IronKey, assembling a set of technologies
that enable the easy and secure transport of data, digital identities and user
workspaces using a range of mobile storage media.
"With more employees working outside of
the office, organizations are looking for ways to capture the benefits of the
mobile workforce, while at the same time empowering and securing mobile
workers," said Lawrence Reusing, Imation's general manager of Mobile Security.
"As a company with decades of experience storing and protecting government and
enterprise data, Imation's focus is to secure the mobile workforce. Imation's
mobile security solution set gives organizations the ability to protect
sensitive information and corporate data in a way that provides flexibility and
ease of use for both the organization and mobile worker."
