The 8GB model is the latest version in the IronKey product line that currently includes 1GB, 2GB and 4GB options. All user data on an IronKey is encrypted with high-speed military-grade hardware encryption. Unlike software-based encryption, this always-on protection cannot be disabled, and is protected against cold-boot and brute force attacks.
If a thief tries to break into an IronKey and exceeds a policy-determined number of failed login attempts, the IronKey Cryptochip will lock out the encryption functions and securely erase all the encrypted data with its patent-pending Flash Trash technology.
IronKey devices offer a suite of applications and services, including portable Firefox, IronKey Password Manager, RSA SecurID and a Secure Sessions service. Policy settings allow IronKey administrators to turn these applications off or on as desired.
The 8GB version is available now for $299.
