Memory Experts ClipDrive Bio Offers Data Security
The Memory Experts ClipDrive Bio provides an elegant solution if your flash drive is lost or stolen.Flash drives are so convenient and easy to use that some people opt to use them rather than transport their notebooks. Often these keys contain sensitive materialproposals, financial spreadsheets, presentations. But what happens if the flash drive is lost or stolen? In the wrong hands, the devices data could spell trouble, either for an individual or for a company. The Memory Experts ClipDrive Bio provides an elegant solution to this security problem. It combines a conventional flash drive with a 128- by 128-pixel, 500-dpi Authentec fingerprint sensor. The ClipDrive Bios memory capacity is divided into two partitions: public and secure. When you plug in the ClipDrive, only the public partition mounts as an available drive. The secure partition mounts only after you authenticate yourself with either your fingerprint or your fingerprint and a password.
The device encrypts data stored in the secure partition using AES (Advanced Encryption Standard), with a 128-bit key; the password can be up to 32 characters long. The database for biometrics and passwords resides on a secure, inaccessible partition on the device, so that PCs never see or compromise the information.
