IronKey™ Workspace Provisioning Tool Enables Enterprise-Wide Adoption Of Windows To Go

Stocks in this article: IMN

Imation Corp. (NYSE: IMN), a global data storage and information security company, today announced the IronKey™ Workspace Provisioning Tool, a software-based solution that speeds and simplifies provisioning of Windows 8.1 desktops using Microsoft’s Windows To Go on IronKey Workspace USB drives. Providing provisioning of up to 42 IronKey Workspace drives in approximately an hour, organizations can use the IronKey Workspace Provisioning Tool to realize the cost savings and mobility-enabling benefits of Microsoft Windows To Go.

Windows To Go is an enterprise feature of Windows 8.1 that lets people be productive from almost any location they choose to work from using the compatible computer they choose. The Windows To Go solution is ideal for mobile workers, teleworkers and contractors, and fuels secure “Bring Your Own Device” (BYOD) strategies that allow employees to use their home PCs for work. Once the IronKey Workspace is set up as a Windows To Go drive, the operating system, applications and data are all contained on the Microsoft-certified IronKey Workspace USB drive. When installed into a compatible computer, the drive uses the host PC’s hardware and resources such as monitors, CPUs and network connections.

With the IronKey Workspace Provisioning Tool, IT pros can confidently and rapidly arm a department or team with a single Windows 8.1 corporate “Golden Image” on rugged, secure Microsoft-certified IronKey Workspace W500 or W300 USB drives, using a process similar to the way laptops are provisioned, but much faster. The IronKey Workspace Provisioning Tool is ideal for IT desktop teams supporting large numbers of Windows To Go users, opening opportunities for value-added resellers and IT service providers to support customer deployments of Windows To Go.

The new IronKey Workspace Provisioning Tool is fast and easy to use. After installing the software on a Windows 8.1 laptop, customers attach two seven-port USB hubs. The software allows IT desktop administrators to choose from a variety of formatting options – including 32-bit, 64-bit, centralized device management and remote BIOS updates. The tool can provision up to 14 certified USB devices at once, provisioning all 14 in approximately 20 minutes.
