Keeping your data safe and secure while on the move is a prime concern – not only for businesses, but also from a personal perspective. Imagine losing your personal files, leaving them on a train or in the back of a taxi, knowing that anyone can access them because they were saved on a standard USB drive. The Fingerprint Secure USB Drive uses a combination of AES 256-bit hardware encryption and biometric technology for complete information security.
The AES 256-bit Hardware Encryption seamlessly encrypts all data on the drive in real-time. The drive is compliant with GDPR requirements as 100% of the drive is securely encrypted. The built-in fingerprint recognition system allows access for up to six authorised users including one administrator who can access the device via a password. The USB drive does not store passwords in the computer or system’s volatile memory making it far more secure than software encryption. Also, if it falls into the wrong hands, the drive will erase all data after multiple failed password attempts.
The easy-to-use software allows up to six users to enrol and save their fingerprints. On first use an administrator password is setup and this administrator can setup the other users, assigning them with either administrator or access only rights. Once assigned, these users can lock and unlock the device just using their registered fingerprint. Simply plug in the Fingerprint secure to your PC and gently place your finger on the sensor. If the fingerprint is recognised the secure USB drive will unlock and a blue LED on the device will light up. The USB drive can also be accessed using the administrator password.
Compatible with both PC and Mac operating systems, the USB drive has a USB 3.0 interface which can handle speeds up to 5Gbps, whilst also being backwards compatible with USB 2.0 (480Mbps speeds) for use on a variety of host devices.
