Lockheed Martin, known for its expertise in laser weapons, surveillance aircraft and a lot of other high-end technologies has launched a secure USB drive. Introduced as IronClad, this secure USB drive will let you carry your computer on a keychain connected USB stick. Don’t be mistaken, it’s no ordinary flash drive. It can actually hold your entire operating system, software applications and most importantly your files.
Once you get your files on the USB drive, you can carry it anywhere and connect it to almost any computer or laptop. The IronClad technology from Lockheed Martin runs the operating system directly off of the flash drive and thus your files will not be read by the computer or the laptop your USB drive is connected to. Not just that, the device leaves no trace that it was ever connected to the computer.
Steve Ryan, senior vice president at IronKey said, “USB storage devices are rendered relatively useless without the proper authentication and security precautions in place. IronKey is a security company first and foremost, and IronClad drives leverage IronKey’s highly secure architecture design. We are very pleased to be working with Lockheed Martin to deliver this trusted, secure product with hardware-only password checking, secure virtual desktop and remote management capabilities.” via
