IronKey unveils 8GB version of secure USB drive

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.
