Imation Corp. (NYSE: IMN), a global scalable storage and data security company, was presented with a 2012 Tekne Award in the Computer Hardware and Electronic Devices category recognizing the Imation DataGuard™ Data Protection Appliance. Imation RDX® Media Secure was also nominated as a finalist. The 2012 Tekne Awards honor Minnesota companies and individuals for technology innovation and leadership.

“Data storage demands continue to evolve as IT professionals are now managing more digital content while also addressing security, business continuity and regulatory compliance. We often hear from our technology and channel partners that only Imation can deliver solutions to address the distinct storage needs of SMBs at a cost-effective price point,” said James DePuydt, Ph.D., executive director, Scalable Storage RD&E, Imation. “We are thrilled to be a 2012 Tekne Award recipient as this win recognizes Imation’s continued innovation, a credit to our dedicated technology professionals.”

Leveraging its deep technology and engineering experience and rich insight into the data storage requirements of small and medium businesses (SMBs), Imation continues to lead the industry forward by launching new secure storage products and enhancing tested technology, such as RDX media, to deliver greater value to customers. Positioned at the intersection of storage and security, Imation product design teams develop and market solutions that enable businesses to tackle rapid data growth while ensuring that data is secure and accessible.
