AuthenTec’s fingerprint sensor has been chosen by mobile enterprise platform developer Realm Systems to secure the company’s mobile pocket-sized server, making it, according to AuthenTec, one of the most secure in the industry.
SALT LAKE CITY and MELBOURNE, Fla. – Realm Systems has chosen AuthenTec’s biometric technology to enable secured endpoint computing in its pocket-sized server. The Realm iD3 Personal Server is a fully functioning server that is ultra- secure, centrally managed – and small enough to fit in your pocket. The Realm iD3 contains its own processor, memory, storage, built-in AuthenTec biometric fingerprint sensor, and is completely powered by the USB port of any host computer.
“We are pleased that Realm has chosen AuthenTec’s advanced fingerprint sensors to protect the critical files, features and functions on its unique mobile server,” said Tom Aebli, director of PC segment marketing for AuthenTec. “By adding AuthenTec biometrics, Realm is setting a new standard in mobile security for its customers.” “Because of the AuthenTec sensor, the Realm iD3 is one of the most biometrically secured devices in the industry,” said Chris Bodily, Realm iD3 Product Manager. “Through Realm’s proprietary solution, the biometric data provided by the AuthenTec sensor is never sent over a network or other possibly compromised medium.”
