Imation Debuts New Flash Drive

Imation, a maker of optical and flash removable data storage medium, yesterday announced a new flash drive which they say brings together “style, substance and security”. The new Pivot Flash Drive is available now in sizes ranging from 256MB to 4GB and prices ranging from $32.99 to $239.99.

The Pivot Flash Drive, said Imation, is set in a tough rubberized, water resistant casing and has an integrated cap which can’t be lost. The USB drive, which works with multiple operating systems, folds out like a Swiss Army knife and includes a keychain clip. It features reportedly easy to use security software with 128-bit AES encryption and password protection to help guard its contents.

“The Imation Pivot Flash Drive blends security, capacity and durability with a polished look – making it an ideal portable data storage solution for busy professionals with high expectations,” said Tom Lally, U.S. executive director of sales and marketing, Imation, in a statement. “The Pivot Flash Drive is the latest in a series of flash drive introductions targeted at different audiences – making Imation the smart choice for portable data storage solutions – and satisfying the needs of everyone from students to amateur photographers to office executives.”
