Secure remote access to business desktops
Woking, Surrey: 23rd November, 2012 - Wick Hill is now shipping beta versions of Imation’s IronKey™ Workspace, certified for deployment of Windows To Go. The IronKey Workspace lets organisations 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.
Ian Kilpatrick, chairman Wick Hill Group, commented: “Imation’s IronKey Workspace is an ideal solution for organisations to securely provide access for contractors and remote users.”
Organisations 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:
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.
IronKey Workspace protects an organisation’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.
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 the UK in early December through Wick Hill.
