USB Based Smart Card Reader With Flash Memory

HID Global : 03 June, 2010  (New Product)
Mobile data security based on smart card technology applied to USB flash memory device in HID's Omnikey 6221
HID Global has announced a portable, dongle-sized USB smart card reader that includes a removable MicroSD flash memory slot and reader for subscriber identity module (SIM)-sized contactless smart cards. By supporting flexible memory up to 32GB, the Omnikey 6221 USB reader is both cost effective and a future-proof investment for organizations looking to improve mobile document security.

"Data transported via traditional USB sticks or media such as CDs is vulnerable to unauthorized 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've solved this problem by packaging flexible memory and contactless smart card technology into a convenient and robust USB-based mobile-data security design that's easy for users to attach to a key ring and carry with them. The smart design also protects both the memory and SIM-sized smart cards under a removable cover to prevent their accidental loss."

HID Global's Omnikey 6221 delivers data protection and secure content issuance using encryption and digital signatures in conjunction with PIN protection. This provides the assurance of two-factor authentication in a pluggable, SIM-sized contact smart card format that is ideal for protecting data and any licensed content that is used by today's increasingly mobile workforce. The removable SAM module gives organizations the flexibility to re-use the reader by simply issuing a new SAM module when needed.

The Omnikey 6221 measures 3.7 inches long by 1.02 inches wide by 0.59 inches high (94 x 26 x 15 mm). The reader is based on the same technology and drivers as HID Global's Omnikey popular desktop product family of logical access readers, making it easy to integrate into existing Omnikey applications. The reader is designed to meet all major standards, including ISO 7816, Microsoft WHQL, USB CCID, PC/SC, HBCI (Home Banking Computer Interface) and the PC-2001specification. In addition, it works on any operating-system platform supporting CCID and USB removable media, without requiring any drivers to be installed. The Omnikey® 6221 USB Reader is manufactured using a sturdy poly carbonate material, and is available in all regions immediately.
