IronKey, a company involved in securing data and online access, has partnered with Imation, a storage offering firm, to focus its efforts on helping enterprises secure access to cloud-based Internet services.
The two companies have signed an agreement under which Imation will purchase the assets of IronKey’s secure data storage hardware business.
The two companies will offer IronKey online security services to enterprises, financial institutions, governments and consumers.
Imation customers will utilise IronKey’s cloud-based security services to gain access to capabilities to manage mobile devices, encryption, security policies, fraud prevention and virtualised applications.
IronKey CEO Arthur Wong said the IronKey Trusted Access Platform service is used by financial institutions to prevent online banking fraud and achieve compliance with new FFIEC requirements, and they will expand this security service platform to enable all enterprises to protect their assets, data, and transactions.
"IronKey will support multiple form factors and applications, including portable USB devices, software, and mobile applications, for IronKey Trusted Access and other new IronKey security services," said Arthur.
