Mobile phone alarm tag protects confidential data

TenBu Technologies : 09 September, 2009  (New Product)
Laptops, flash memory and mobile devices can be protected with bluetooth based audible alarm system from TenBu Technologies
Mobile phone alarm tag protects confidential data
British mobile innovator TenBu has unveiled a gadget that secures mobile phones and other data-rich portable devices by creating a personal alarm system powered by Bluetooth. Named after the Japanese Guardian Kings, nio™ is bringing businesses the peace of mind that the confidential data stored on employees' mobile phones and other portable devices is no longer vulnerable to careless loss or theft.

nio™ is a lightweight, user-friendly gadget consisting of a Bluetooth tag with an innovative software link that downloads directly onto the user's mobile phone, creating a personalised security zone of up to 25 metres. The security zone protects both the mobile phone and the Bluetooth tag, which may be attached to another valuable item, such as a set of keys or a laptop. When the security zone is breached, both the tagged item and the mobile phone emit an audible alarm. A flashing blue light on the tag is also triggered.

nio™ is specifically designed for ease of use. The nio™ software can control multiple nio™ tags simultaneously, and each tag can be given an identifying name and image on the mobile phone. In extremely high-risk environments, users can activate a Motion Sensor to alert them if anyone moves their tagged item. A handy 'locate' tone helps users find misplaced tagged items, and a calendar feature allows users to preset specific times for the tag to go active - ideal for the commute to work. Uniquely, nio™ comes equipped with a fully rechargeable battery that can keep nio™ on standby for several weeks.

Ben Hounsell, Director of TenBu Technologies, said it was time for organisations to take a more serious stance on securing the confidential data they have contained on employees' portable storage and mobile devices.

'We have a responsibility to be realistic about the risks inherent in transporting data, and to ensure that we take every reasonable precaution to protect ourselves, our customers and our businesses from criminal behaviour,' said Hounsell. 'nio™ guards against human error and demonstrates to your staff and customers that you take your security policies seriously.'

Although most businesses employ passwords, encryption and device-handling policies to prevent unauthorised access to sensitive data, recent high-profile incidences of data loss demonstrate that these techniques alone are not fool-proof. Three HSBC firms were recently fined over £3m for failing to protect customers' confidential details. The FSA reported that HSBC Life alone lost a CD containing the details of over 180,000 policyholders.

Visible use of nio™ tags confirms an organisation's commitment to security to its customers, enhancing its relationship of trust with customers as well as its reputation in the wider marketplace. Using nio™ will also enable organisations to reduce their amount of insurance-related administration, as fewer claims will be made against the company's policies.
