HID Global has announced a portable, dongle-sized USB smartcard reader that includes a removable MicroSD flash memory slot and reader for subscriber identity module (SIM)-sized contactless smartcards. By supporting flexible memory up to 32 GB, the OMNIKEY 6221 USB reader is both cost effective and a future-proof investment for organisations looking to improve mobile document security.
“Data transported via traditional USB sticks or media such as CDs is vulnerable to unauthorised use through loss or theft, and electronic content distributed in this way can easily be pirated by simple copy and redistribution,” said Alan Fontanella, senior director of product marketing for
HID Global’s Identity and Access Management business. “We have solved this problem by packaging flexible memory and contactless smartcard technology into a convenient and robust USB-based mobile-data security design that is easy for users to attach to a key ring and carry with them. The smart design also protects both the memory and SIM-sized smartcards under a removable cover to prevent their accidental loss.”
