A 1 GB flash drive from Artemis Solutions allows users to control access to their private computer data via a fingerprint. Developed in conjunction with Symwaver using its BioPrint swipe fingerprint technology, the BioCert ClipBio Pro Flash Drive uses advanced encryption methods and a secure biometric algorithm to authorize users access to their data on a secure partition on the flash drive.
Freeland, WA–Artemis Solutions Group announced the immediate availability of its latest innovative product under the BioCert product line – the BioCert ClipBio Pro 1GB Secure Fingerprint Flash Drive.
The BioCert ClipBio Pro 1GB biometric flash drive provides consumers with the latest in biometric technology to secure data, while allowing the user to securely control access to their private data with a touch of their fingerprint. The previous version of the ClipBio was featured in a Forbes Magazine article “How to Travel Like a Billionaire – 2006” at a price of $229.95.
The newly redesigned ClipBio Pro with 1GB of storage is attractively priced at nearly half the price of the previous model – now only $129.95 through the companies’ website at www.clipbio.com.
The most conservative estimates by Gartner Dataquest puts the total unit volumes of USB Flash drives sold in 2005 at 84 Million pieces. But out of those sold how many are truly secure?
Developed in conjunction with Symwaver using their BioPrint swipe fingerprint technology, the BioCert ClipBio Pro 1GB Flash Drive uses advanced encryption methods and a secure biometric algorithm to authorize users access to their data on a secure partition on the ClipBio Pro.
Secured using AES 128 bit encryption, the secure partition of the BioCert ClipBio Pro 1GB is only accessible when an authorized user swipes their fingerprint over the BioPrint Sensor through the included Odyssey software.
“Our BioCert ClipBio Pro 1GB Flash Drive is designed to allow only authorized individuals to have access to your encrypted data stored on the secure partition. Customers have to authenticate their identity with a swipe of their fingerprint on the sensor. The ClipBio Pro is automatically recognized by PCs running the Windows XP operating system and the secure partition is only visible once the user is authenticated.
Produced in conjunction with Symwave Corporation of San Diego California, the BioCert ClipBio Pro is powered by the Symwave BioPrint SW6888 swipe fingerprint IC.
“With increasing incidents of data theft, the need to secure portable devices is becoming increasingly important. We are excited to enable Artemis Solutions Group with our BioPrint fingerprint swipe sensor technology that provides both Security and Convenience to users of portable devices” says Jack Bell VP of Sales and Marketing at Symwave.
