In its continued effort to cater toward federal agencies looking to meet the directives of the Telework Enhancement Act of 2010, Lockheed Martin has released an improved IronClad USB drive.

The IronClad technology is a secure, encrypted flash drive that lets employees carry their entire desktop on a rugged thumb drive the size of a stick of gum.

The version 1.6 is faster, works with a wider array of PCs and laptops, supports more Wi-Fi networks, and makes it easier for IT administrators to track, manage and even shut down the drives, the company said in a press release.

“Winter is here, and every agency is looking for ways to keep employees connected during bad weather,” said Rohan Amin, Lockheed Martin‘s IronClad program manager. “The new features we’ve built into IronClad make it easier than ever for federal employees to telework. Employees can plug in their IronClad drives to their home computers and boot their entire work desktop. That makes them fully productive at home, and backed up by rock-solid security.”

With the recent passage of the Telework Enhancement Act of 2010, now is the time to focus on security and accessibility in your remote infrastructure, said Cindy Auten, general manager of the Telework Exchange.

“As federal agencies begin to implement telework programs, maintaining continuity of operations in contingency situations both securely and seamlessly is top-of-mind,” she said. “Winter weather, and the uncertainty that it brings, provides the ideal platform for agencies to identify the technology resources needed to support essential functions – delivering complete preparedness for the unexpected.”

With IronClad’s upgraded management tools, IT administrators can monitor and update every drive on their network. If a drive is lost or stolen, new features give administrators more options for disabling the drive. The system’s performance is also faster than ever, and new wireless features make it easier to connect securely to home Wi-Fi networks.
