OAKDALE, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 20, 2014--
Corp. (NYSE: IMN), a global data storage and information security
company, today announced that IronKey Workspace W700 won a Best of
TechEd award in the Hardware category. Penton’s
Best of TechEd awards, co-sponsored by Microsoft and Windows IT Pro,
recognize Microsoft partners that offer innovative products and services
for the industry. Winners were announced at the Microsoft TechEd North
America 2014 conference in Houston, Texas.
“This year, we judged products in nine technical categories. We vetted
the nominations from more than 200 entries down to three and sometimes
four finalists in each category. It’s really exciting to see so many
companies creating products that truly help IT professionals and
developers make the most of technology advancements. These products add
business value for the people who adopt them. As cloud and mobile become
more integral to the workplace, innovation continues to accelerate at a
rapid pace. Windows IT Pro is proud to be on the front line for
evaluating the best technology solutions,” said Amy Eisenberg,
editor-in-chief of Windows IT Pro.
The winning solution, IronKey’s PC on a Stick™ utilizes Windows To Go,
one of the most exciting enterprise features of Microsoft Windows 8.1,
to equip contractors and employees with a fully manageable corporate
desktop complete with their applications, security controls, and access
policies all contained on a virtually indestructible and highly secure
USB 3.0 flash drive. Employees simply insert the Microsoft-certified
IronKey Workspace W700 into a compatible computer and the host PC
hardware boots completely off the Windows To Go drive using local
resources such as monitors, CPUs and network connections, but completely
insulated from the local hard drive. The management system handles
password resets and can remotely wipe or destroy a device that has been
lost or stolen. Ruggedized, high-performance IronKey Workspace W700
devices are ideal for government agencies and other highly regulated
industries such as financial services or healthcare that require
military-grade security and centralized management. With IronKey
Workspace W700, government agencies and enterprises can now meet a
multitude of mobility mandates including telework enablement, BYOD, and
business continuity at a fraction of the cost of traditional computing.
Judges said, “IronKey’s abilities are extremely timely as companies are
looking for a better BYOD solution, along with the ability to migrate
from Windows XP without the cost of replacing hardware.”
