Memory Experts International has launched a portable storage device that can only be accessed by the user’s biometric fingerprint to address growing concerns that lost or stolen mobile devices can cause huge security problems.

The ClipDrive Bio includes a scanner that scanner stores users’ fingerprints, 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 2Gb of data – more than enough for any sensitive presentations or spreadsheets.

Eric Churet, European sales and marketing director at Memory Experts International, says the ClipDrive Bio could also be used as a biometric access tool to control access on desktop PCs to guard a corporate Lan, as well as controlling access to portable devices.

Data is copied from a PC to the device at around 1.7Mb per second. More details can be found at www.clipdrive.com.
