Portable devices get improved security

Tuesday, 30 March 2004, 11:13 AM EST

The company's Clipdrive Bio portable storage device can only be accessed by the user's fingerprint. The device's internal scanner stores the user's fingerprint, which then has to be placed on a reader whenever the data needs to be accessed. All data can be encrypted on a partitioned section of the device for extra security.

Clipdrive Bio plugs into USB drives of portable devices and can store up to 2Gbytes of data - more than enough for content-sensitive presentations or spreadsheets.
