Hardware Encrypted USB Device With Dual Fingerprint Authentication

RiTech International : 01 October, 2010  (New Product)
RiTech has produced the Signature, a hardened USB data storage device with hardware encryption and access control using dual biometric fingerprint recognition technology
Hardware Encrypted USB Device With Dual Fingerprint Authentication
Earlier this month, a case in Manchester, England, sparked an investigation on how a memory stick containing top secret information belonging to the police was dumped outside their station. It was found by a passerby who discovered the anti-terror documents after fitting the device into his laptop.

Situations like these are what organizations want to stay clear of - sensitive information falling into the wrong hands and unauthorized data access. Detrimental effects may arise such as the loss of consumer confidence, loss of credibility, security breaches, and data loss.

RiTech International has come up with Signature, a USB device that allows data access through dual fingerprint recognition. It offers the most secure authorization in data storage, without having to install any software on your PC.

Founded in 1994, RiTech International focuses its resources in developing innovations for the Biometrics Security Industry. Signature is just one of the products that offer the ultimate data protection for its users. This hardware encrypted device leaves no trail on your PC and does not require the user to install any software, regardless of the operating system. A secure device like Signature will prove beneficial for any organization with its user-friendly and security features.

Signature's key unique features include:

1) Dual Fingerprint Authentication
2) Brute Force Prevention
3) Entry Guard
4) Zero Footprint
5) Self-Destruct

Signature's strong security features increases the difficulty for hackers and access from unauthorized users to obtain confidential data. The entry guard works after 3 failed login attempts and powers off the device. The self-destruct will activate upon 7 failed authentication cycles (1 cycle is equivalent to 3 login attempts). It targets niche market segments like high level corporate departments.

Speaking on the level of security for fingerprint spoofing and authorization, Dr B L Lim, the inventor of Signature and the Chief Technical Officer for RiTech International said, "In general, the authentication of fingerprint is based on the characteristic of the fingerprint presented to the sensor, and hence if a similar characteristic(s) is/are presented, the fingerprint process will take it as a "correct and truth" copy of the fingerprint. Hence, finger spoofing is always an unavoidable issue, and really depending on how well and excellent the fake finger(s) is/are being generated."

In a corporate setting, the Signature USB device will be useful in enhancing the controlling, monitoring, and securing of data for both administrators and users. Purchase of Signature with a capacity of 2gb, 4gb, and 8gb can be made on the bioslimdisk web site.
