IronKey Achieves New Certification With RSA SecurID® Software Client

Speeds Strong Authentication Deployments for Financial Malware Protection and Mobile Data Encryption

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - February 10, 2011) -  IronKey, the leader in secure portable computing solutions, today announced that IronKey Trusted Access for Banking™ and IronKey Enterprise™ have achieved updated certified interoperability with the newest RSA SecurID® 4.1 software client from RSA, The Security Division of EMC (NYSE: EMC). This updated certification and software support allows IronKey customers to more easily scale deployments with Web-based Dynamic Seed Provision (CT-KIP). These certifications are part of the RSA Secured® Partner Program, and this interoperability allows IronKey to seamlessly combine the RSA SecurID platform with industry leading financial malware protection and mobile data encryption solutions. 

IronKey Trusted Access for Banking protects online banking users from bank phishing and other financial malware like ZeuS and SpyEye that are stealing up to $6 billion annually, and it is the only solution available to meet NACHA and FBI guidelines for safe online banking. Trusted Access creates a separate, virtualized environment that isolates banking users from man-in-browser, keylogging, host tampering and other attacks used in today's malware toolkits. With an on-board RSA SecurID software client, Trusted Access simplifies providing two-factor authentication with a single portable device. Trusted Access also provides additional layers of security including screen scraping protection to environments already using strong authentication with RSA SecurID technology.

IronKey Enterprise provides a secure solution for portable and managed data storage. It combines the secure IronKey USB flash drive with the cloud-based IronKey Enterprise Management Service for rapid and cost-effective deployment and remote administration and policy enforcement, including remote enabling of RSA SecurID software clients.

"Hackers and identity thieves prey on organizations that rely on passwords for authentication," said Dave Tripier, chief marketing officer at IronKey. "The combination of RSA SecurID technology with IronKey solutions for financial malware protection and mobile data encryption provides the industry's most complete solution for banks, enterprises and governments."

"We are pleased to have IronKey in the RSA Secured Partner Program. IronKey's ability to protect online banking users from financial malware coupled with providing a separate virtualized environment can help provide organizations with another strong layer of protection from cyber thieves," said Ted Kamionek, vice president, Corporate Development, RSA, The Security Division of EMC. "The interoperability between our products will help customers to effectively and more efficiently increase their level of protection against financial malware attacks."
