Imation Corp. (NYSE: IMN), a global scalable storage and data security company, today announced beta availability of its IronKey™ Workspace, certified for deployment of Windows To Go. The IronKey Workspace lets organizations outfit mobile professionals with a secure, fast USB platform to run Windows To Go from a USB stick on multiple compatible PCs, an ideal solution for teleworkers, contractors, and those implementing BYOD (“bring your own device”) strategies.
The IronKey Workspace is certified for deployment of Windows To Go, a feature of Windows 8 that lets enterprise users boot a full version of Windows 8 from an external USB drive on compatible host PCs.
“The traditional and static arrangement of the software instance of the user’s workspace bound to a single hardware device no longer fits the personal computing requirements of a growing population of workers and, for that matter, their employers; breaking this software-to-hardware linkage is essential,” said Michael Suby, Stratecast’s vice president of Research at Frost & Sullivan. “PC on a Stick addresses this need by infusing complete and secure workspace portability into the realm of personal computing.”
Organizations running Windows 8 Enterprise Edition can provision a Windows desktop onto the IronKey Workspace to create a PC on a Stick™ – with the operating system and data contained on the USB drive, while still leveraging the host PC’s hardware and resources, such as monitors, cameras, and network connections.
The IronKey Workspace provides a fast, easy, and cost effective way to empower mobile workers with Windows To Go. Features and benefits of the IronKey Workspace include:
- Speed: The IronKey Workspace drive delivers over five times the minimum read/write performance required for Windows To Go certified devices. Users will experience a responsive and smooth-running system, thanks to USB 3.0 SuperSpeed technology and sequential read performance of up to 400+ MB/second, and sequential write speeds of up to 300+ MB/second.
- Security: IronKey Workspace protects an organization’s data by leveraging Windows To Go’s BitLocker password protection capabilities and up to 256-bit AES full disk encryption. Devices, data, and applications are automatically protected the moment a user removes the drive from their host PC.
- Capacity options: Available in 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB capacities to meet a range of user needs.
The IronKey Workspace for Windows To Go will be available in early December worldwide through Imation’s network of channel partners or Imation Sales. US customers can order beta versions of the IronKey Workspace drives now at http://store.imation.com/security. Manufacturer’s list price is US$129 for the 32GB model, US$215 for 64GB, and US$389 for 128GB. Additional specifications can be found at: http://www.imation.com/en-US/Mobile-Security/Mobile-Security-Products/Secure-Mobile-Workspace/IronKey-Workspace/.
“Windows To Go is a key feature of Windows 8 Enterprise that will impact the way organizations empower mobile workers. Imation’s IronKey Workspace is one of a handful of drives certified to deliver the Windows 8 desktop experience on a USB flash drive,” said Stella Chernyak, senior director of product marketing, Windows Enterprise, Microsoft Corp.
“We are seeing tremendous interest in the PC on a Stick from organizations seeking to give their workers a seamless Windows 8 experience across multiple devices. Imation has strong experience developing and helping organizations deploy mobile workspaces in high-security environments. Our IronKey Workspace delivers a high-performance platform for organizations seeking to bring the benefits of Windows To Go to their mobile workforce,” said Lawrence Reusing, Imation’s general manager for Mobile Security.
Imation’s commitment to helping enterprises and government organizations address the challenges of the mobile workforce is illustrated in the “Blueprint to Secure Mobile Workspaces” whitepaper. The whitepaper outlines the opportunities, use cases, and key considerations for deploying security-enhanced mobile workspaces.
Next year, Imation plans to roll out a line of solutions that empower organizations to deploy Windows To Go via its hardware encrypted IronKey flash drives, strong authentication, and centralized device management. Organizations will be able to turn to Imation for high-security workspace solutions for teleworkers, contractors, and travelers at an attractive total cost of ownership using Windows To Go.

With so much going on in this space you could be forgiven for thinking you were always working with yesterday’s technologies. So much change, so quickly.

This is the challenge we faced when we looked to refresh our existing 10-year-old custom hardware stack to measure the fullness of trash cans and compactors.

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
