Subject: IronKey ™ EMS Cloud Release Notes for v16.6.5 - Device-less Admin Devices
Release Date: April 4, 2017
Dear Valued Customer:
The team at DataLocker is pleased to announce that a new version of IronKey EMS cloud will change the way EMS Admins are able to access the management console for their account and also the way that our managed devices function.
Previously Admin’s had to access the management console through the control panel of their issued Admin devices.
Key new features -
Admins will now be able to access the Management Console via a Web-based interface without a physical Ironkey device.
Email based two factor authentication will be required to access the Management Console via a user name and password
Impact to your account –
Now Admin’s will be able to gain access to the management console without requiring a physical Ironkey device.
This will still allow the admins to manage their account devices, users, and policies just as they had previously, but simply provides them easier access to the Console.
This feature is optional – when adding new Admin User to your account, you have the option to pick which login method works best in your environment. Choose the new Device-less method to ensure that you will always have access to your management console in the event of your Ironkey Admin device being lost.
Impact to your devices -
With the new feature of being able to access the Management console via a Web-based
login, newly released devices (Sentry EMS and D300M) will no longer have the Admin
Console icon in their device control panel.
Admins who are issued Sentry EMS or D300M devices will only be able to access the
EMS Management Console via the Web-based login.
If you only want your Admins accessing the console through their device, you will need
to make sure that they are issued legacy devices (S100, X250, S1000) or a DataLocker
H350 Hard Drive. If this is the case, you might have to pull back some of the issued
legacy devices and reserve them for your Admins and issue the Sentry EMS or D300M
devices to the standard users (who do not have access to the Management Console
