Imation has announced two new flash drives, the Pivot Plus and the re-designed Pivot. Both drives feature rugged, tamper-resistant designs and, in the case of the Pivot Plus, 256-bit AES hardware encryption.

Imation Corp. (NYSE: IMN), a worldwide leader in removable data storage media, today introduced the Imation Pivot Plus Flash Drive and re-designed Imation Pivot Flash Drive, each engineered to deliver advanced security options. The Pivot Plus Flash Drive features a rugged design and maximum security to meet rigorous government security standards, providing an ideal way for business professionals and government personnel to safely store and transport sensitive or valuable data. The updated Pivot Flash Drive offers an enhanced design and security features, making it the perfect solution for today's mobile business professional.

"Because of their size, ease of use and portability, flash drives are business tools that require enhanced security to ensure data stays safe," said Keith Schwartz, director, North America sales and marketing, Imation Corp. "With the addition of the Pivot Plus Flash Drive and newly enhanced Pivot Flash Drive to the Imation flash suite, Imation is furthering its commitment to security across all its flash drive products. Road warriors can now select the level of memory and security they need to safely store and transfer data on the go."
While the re-designed Pivot won't ship until later this year, the Pivot Plus is available now in 1GB, 2GB, 4GB and 8GB capacities. More information, including pricing, can be found here.
