BluStor to participate in Amazon’s LaunchPad program
BluStor has partnered with Amazon’s start-up program LaunchPad to fulfill e-commerce sales of its new personal biometric identification solution, CyberGate Secure Mobile Briefcase (SMB).
The CyberGate SMB is a sophisticated, wireless, personal biometric identification and data storage card that fits into a wallet or purse. Supporting multi-factor biometric authentication, the card replaces, or can augment, traditional usernames, passwords, and PIN numbers with an ultra-secure, multi-factor biometric authentication system. The system securely stores data only on the device, ensuring that personal information is never exposed to a mobile device or a cloud-based service environment.
“We are extremely honored BluStor’s CyberGate Secure Mobile Briefcase was selected to participate in Amazon’s LaunchPad program,” said Finis Conner, BluStor’s founder and CEO. “The LaunchPad program features some of the world’s most innovative products. The launch of the CyberGate platform will be the pivot point where people can finally take back control of their identity. BluStor’s patented platform is the first step in stopping the rampant phishing scams, ransomware, and other types of identity fraud dead in their tracks.”
The LaunchPad program helps start-ups introduce new products using Amazon’s marketing tools and global fulfillment infrastructure and distribute their products to customers globally.
The CyberGate SMB is currently available for pre order at a price of $229.95. All units will include BluStor firmware, BluStor GateKeeper application software and a Software Development Kit (SDK) with free downloadable application upgrades for 12 months.
In February of 2015, BluStor initiated an Indiegogo campaign that raised consumer awareness about the technology. At the time, Conner stated that the main driver behind the card was to develop a system that allowed users to retain control over their personal financial data and only provide it one-time when required for a transaction.
