USB Flash Drive Included with Other Superior Products in Fashion, Technology and Luxury

IronKey Inc., maker of the world's most secure flash drive, announced today that its Personal 4GB flash drive has been selected to be included within the 2008 ESPY Gift Bag. The ESPY Awards from ESPN bring together athletes and celebrities to celebrate excellence in sports by honoring the greatest athletic performances and memorable moments during the past year. Justin Timberlake will host this year's ceremony to be broadcast on Sunday, July 20th at 9:00 PM ET on ESPN.

Each year ESPY guests are given a take-home gift bag packed with the year's superior products in fashion, technology and luxury. Past attendees have included Michael Jordan, Denzel Washington, Tiger Woods, Serena Williams, Dustin Hoffman, LeBron James, Samuel L. Jackson and Lance Armstrong. VIP guests at this year's event will find an IronKey Personal 4GB flash drive in their gift bags to use as a personal portable application and storage device that will protect them from threats to their data privacy and identity theft while on the move.

"It's very cool that ESPN has chosen our IronKey Personal 4GB product for their ESPY gift bags," said Arthur Coleman, CMO at IronKey. "The private information of athletes and celebrities regularly comes under attack, with very public and potentially significant financial consequences. These high-profile ESPY guests have a real need for a USB flash drive that is hardware encrypted and military grade and provides them unmatched data protection."
