UK university protects data with IronKey

Andy Williams   ||   May 12, 2011  ||   

The University of Sunderland in northeast England has chosen IronKey as its ‘de facto’ portable security provider to help protect access to data such as research papers for its network of academics around the world.

In addition to protecting its global network from using unsecured networks and internet cafes, IronKey Enterprise will also give the university’s corporate governance and IT departments an extra level of security.

After a small-scale trial with a select number of users, the university rolled out the Ironkey USB device to 130 users around the world. Initial feedback has been positive and there have been no reported problems, said a university spokesperson, who called it “a plug and play solution.”

IronKey, with offices in Sunnyvale, Calif. and Uxbridge, UK, secures data and online access for individuals, enterprises, and governments. It can protect remote workers from the threats of data loss, compromise of passwords, and computers infected by malicious software. IronKey multi-function devices connect to a computer’s USB port.
