NamITech has announced that it will be distributing the new ClipDrive Bio family of secure data storage devices locally on behalf of Memory Experts, providers of memory and storage solutions to the international IT and office equipment markets.
"We are very excited about this new product," says Andrew James, sales executive, NamITech. "We believe there is a large need for a secure device of this calibre in the local market, particularly with the use of USB Flash Drives, which may not be that secure, becoming more the norm."
Employing state-of-the-art biometric technology to guarantee data security in a lightweight, robust and small form factor, the device is configured into two partitions, one public, the other secure. The secure partition cannot be seen or compromised without an authorised fingerprint to allow access.
The ClipDrive Bio not only secures data, but can also integrate with biometric login control systems, so that access to the PC or the corporate network can be biometrically secured, both for employees based in a company's office and for mobile workers.
With the embedded biometric scanner and seamless, 128-bit AES based cryptography, the ClipDrive Bio design enables IT managers to roll-out secure USB storage devices to staff that need them, ensuring that important documents and files are secure. It can also be used as the biometric authentication device for many leading biometric logon applications.
The ClipDrive Bio utilises a high-definition 128x128 'TruePrint' technology pixel array Biometric scanner coupled with seamless AES based file encryption to deliver high security in a portable flash drive, and comes in a variety of storage capabilities ranging from 64 Mb to 2 GB, all in a thumb-sized footprint weighing less than an ounce.
TruePrint technology reads beyond the surface layer of the skin to the live layer where the true fingerprint resides. Unlike surface-based optical, thermal, and DC capacitive technologies, TruePrint is not affected by common skin surface conditions such as dry, worn, callused, oily or dirty skin which can affect the sensor's ability to acquire accurate fingerprint images. TruePrint also offers a highly reliable security architecture starting from the anti-spoofing capabilities, supported by template encryption and digital signatures throughout the matching process.
