Security Watch: Imation Announces IronKey H350 hard drives wit FIPS 140-2 Level 3 Certification

Imation has announced the new IronKey H350 USB 3.0 hard drive. This is the only USB 3.0 hard drive to achieve FIPS 140-2 Level 3 validation (certification #2359) to meet the most stringent 256-bit encryption requirements mandated for government agencies, defence contractors, and healthcare and financial-services enterprises.

Government agencies and enterprises can have assurance the entire drive, and not just its encryption components, is compliant with this standard, keeping it safe from targeted attacks such as BadUSB and Equation Group.

The H350 comes in Basic and Enterprise versions.

The IronKey Basic H350 is encased in a tamper-resistant, high-strength aluminum enclosure and features AES-XTS 256-bit hardware encryption, USB 3.0 and a Section 508-compliant control panel localised for eight languages.

The IronKey Enterprise H350 includes all the same features plus an on-premises or cloud-based management console that lets IT customise security policies and deploy and manage protected portable devices across the enterprise. The management system can remotely wipe or destroy a lost or stolen device and also provides the only secure password reset mechanism that allows users to recover data without erasing the contents on the drive or using a backdoor to reset the password.

The IronKey H350 500GB version is AU$411 ex GST or NZ$488 ex GST. The 1TB version is AU$482 ex GST or NZ$599 ex GST. Both products are immediately available through authorised channel partners.
