UBIN launches USB biometric enterprise security device

March 5, 2014 - 

UBIN has announced the launch of its new biometric enterprise security system, called MiKey.

According to the Germany-based company, MiKey links a user’s digital ID to their physical ID and does so by integrated a fingerprint reader, encryption, storage and Smart Card in a USB stick form-factor.  UBIN also says the MiKey has an engineered ability to keep biometrics locked inside the device, complicating extraction.

NFC is set to be added later this year, to expand on MiKey, the company says.

“The MiKey solution is a great leap forward in information security and comes at a relevant time of increasing privacy concerns,” Uwe Braun, UBIN’s Managing Director said. “By combining biometrics, encryption and storage in one highly integrated device, Enterprise customers are able to achieve an unprecedented degree of secure access to their data.”

The MiKey will come in a variety of data storage capacities up to 32GB and will be available in the second quarter.
