IronKey intros S200 drive

IronKey on Monday announced the upcoming release of its S200 USB drive, which is being touted by the company as the most secure device of its kind. The S200 is the only USB key to meet FIPS 140-2, Level 3 validation for cryptographic modules mandated by government agencies. Otherwise, the S200 sports the same tamper-resistant body, self-destruction circuitry and hardware-based AES-256 encryption as other IronKey drives. The 16GB key can be set to restrict networks, making its content inaccessible on uncontrolled computers.

There is a read-only mode that prevents malware on infected host devices to make its way into the IronKey. Optional anti-virus and anti-malware scanning will check devices in the background for malicious software. The S200 also has enterprise-class management capabilities that include remote policy enforcement, remote data destruct, secure device recovery and self-service password recovery.

The S200 is compatible with Windows XP, 2000 and Vista as well as Mac OS X and Linux operating systems. No pricing information or release dates have been released for the IronKey S200.
