IronKey Enterprise Quick Start Guide

Key things to know about your IronKey
It’s encrypted—always. The IronKey Cryptochip encrypts all your data with military-grade AES encryption. It cannot be disabled. It’s password protected. Don’t share your password with anyone—keep it a secret. It self-destructs. Don’t forget your password. After a set number of failed attempts your IronKey will permanently self-destruct. If you lose it, no one is getting your data. Besides being hardware encrypted and filled solid with an epoxy-based potting compound, your IronKey will initiate a self-destruct sequence if it detects a physical attack.

Your System Administrator has begun the setup process for you. All you will need is an email with an Activation Code and this IronKey.

Frequently Asked Questions
I plug it in, but nothing seems to happen. Why? Your computer may not allow devices to auto-run. Start it manually by clicking on the on the IronKey icon in “My Computer” and running “IronKey.exe”. Make sure you are using Windows 2000, XP or Vista. I receive network connection errors. Why? Your IronKey may not know how you connect to the Internet on your computer. If you are behind a proxy, you may need to configure your IronKey’s network settings by clicking the “Edit Proxy Settings...” link. A prompt appears saying I need to restart. Do I? Some Windows systems prompt you to restart your computer after the first plug your IronKey in. This is not necessary since the IronKey does not install any drivers or software. You can safely close that prompt. Why does my IronKey not have all the features? Your System Administrator has configured your IronKey ahead of time to meet your organization’s security needs. I forgot my device password. What should I do? If you have backed up your device password to your my.ironkey.com account, go to https://my.ironkey.com to recover it. Otherwise, contact your System Admin for assistance. Do not try until your IronKey self-destructs.
