"Because of their size, ease of use and portability, flash drives are business tools that require enhanced security to ensure data stays safe," said Keith Schwartz, director, North America sales and marketing, Imation Corp. "With the addition of the Pivot Plus Flash Drive and newly enhanced Pivot Flash Drive to the Imation flash suite, Imation is furthering its commitment to security across all its flash drive products.

The Pivot Plus Flash Drive delivers an additional level of protection with 256-bit AES hardware encryption, providing further assurance that data stored on the drive will not be compromised. Hardware encryption is integrated into the drive controller and automatically initiated by the drive, requiring secure storage of all data that cannot be compromised by outside users. The encryption software automatically launches when the drive is inserted into a computer's USB port, ensuring that the contents of the drive are always password protected and encrypted. The compact, easy-to-use Imation Pivot Plus Flash Drive also features one password-protected partition that only allows storage of encrypted data, a tamper-resistant housing and full compliance with the federal Trade Agreements Act. Additional security features include administrative password control, automatic formatting after seven failed attempts and character requirements.

Additionally, the re-designed Pivot Flash Drive is now available with up to 8GB of capacity.
