Lockheed Martin and IronKey introduce Ironclad
Bethesda, MD-based Lockheed Martin and Los Altos, CA-based IronKey are unveiling the new IronClad USB drive, which they call "PC on a Stick."
Ironclad, they say, shrinks a laptop's hard drive -- including the entire operating system, software applications and files -- onto a secure flash drive.
The IronClad technology runs the operating system directly off the flash drive, meaning the user's files never touch the hard drive of the borrowed computer, and the device leaves no trace that it was ever there, according to the companies.
Each IronClad device is fully encrypted and delivers hardware-level protection against today's most insidious malware threats, including nearly undetectable rootkits, they add.
