Fingerprint biometric authentication is an emerging technology in IT security. It has particular relevance for many applications and benefits namely automotive keyless ignition, security access etc.
The primary security device is to authenticate the user and allow rightful access to confidential areas. Fingerprint technology is the preferred biometric for most industries as it combines ease of use, small physical size and reliability with low cost.
Encryption, Authentication & Security Solutions With the ThumbDrive® Swipe, Trek has raised the standard on data security by offering a USB flash device with the latest swipe (fingerprint authentication) sensor technology. ThumbDrive® Swipe protects all information on the device with state of the art encryption technology and authenticates users with an embedded fingerprint identification engine. The ThumbDrive® Swipe can also be used as a login control device for accessing host PCs, notebooks and other application systems.
The ThumbDrive® CRYPTO utilizes a flash memory controller with a built-in hardware encryption engine, based on the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), which is the U.S. Government approved standard to encrypt data. The encryption is performed by a high speed encryption engine, which allows high speed transfer without compromising on the integrity of the data and it does not take up additional computing resources on the host computer. ThumbDrive® CRYPTO ensures that 100% of the storage area is encrypted. With this 256-bit hardware AES engine, the ThumbDrive® CRYPTO offers one of the most advanced security solutions available today.
STRIKES, which stands for “Secure TRansaction, Identity, Key, Encryption & Storage”, is a flash drive with an integrated high-end smart chip, that can operate through the USB or contactless interfaces. STRIKES can be used as a second factor authentication for secure online transactions. It provides secure storage of personal identity information to support applications, such as digital signatures, passwords and membership programs. STRIKES can be upgraded to function as a machine readable travel document (or e-passport) or personal
The contactless interface on the STRIKES could also support transportation payment, physical door access, storage of electronic tickets, etc.
Portable storage devices have become ubiquitous in our daily lifes. Many corporations have lost sensitive data through illegal usage of such devices to download sensitive data. Hence we have the compelling need to administer and control the usage of these devices within the corporate environment.
On one hand, it is important that all sensitive data stored on the portable storage devices are encrypted (e.g. with hardware encryption device like ThumbDrive® CRYPTO). It is equally important to ensure that unauthorized devices are also disabled. Our Chez Solution offers protection against unauthorized portable storage devices from accessing sensitive and confidential information in your enterprise IT environment. Chez Solution also empowers you to enforce Corporate Security policies. The solution is currently being utilized by some
Government agencies in Singapore and various private organizations around the world. The Chez Central Managment System (CMS)
