All data stored on an IronKey Personal drive is encrypted with high-speed military-grade hardware encryption. Unlike software-based encryption, this "always-on" protection cannot be disabled and is protected against cold-boot and brute force attacks. No one can access files stored on an IronKey unless they authenticate with the correct password. All encryption and password verification are performed in hardware, and it cannot be disabled by worms, viruses or other malware.
IronKey Personal S250 drives use premium quality dual-channel flash memory to give you fast file read performance of up to 31MB/second and write speeds of up to 18MB/second. High-quality SLC memory also means your drive will last years longer than drives equipped with traditional flash memory.
Shielded in a solid, tamper-resistant and waterproof metal casing that surrounds specially sealed internal components, IronKey drives are built to survive years of wear and tear.
Each IronKey drive is pre-configured with a client-side secure digital certificate, which can be used for strong authentication (VeriSign Identity Protection service) to participating websites. IronKey also provides a PKCS #11 interface which will allow any Windows application to potentially use the certificate.
