SCM Microsystems Launch CHIPDRIVE Smartcard Office with Fingerprint Reader

Wednesday 9 March 2005 17:00 CET | News

SCM Microsystems, has extended its CHIPDRIVE Smartcard Office 2.5 product family with a new solution that uses an external fingerprint reader.

The new biometric version is even more secure, even more versatile and even easier -- in short: CHIPDRIVE Smartcard Office 2.5 Biometric is the only solu­tion required to manage passwords and ID. Combining both hardware and software to support sensitive applications, CHIPDRIVE Smartcard Office 2.5 Biometric stands out from pure software-based PC and network security solutions. The solution uses a secure fingerprint reader rather than a PIN code to safeguard access to PCs and networks. The user’s fingerprint, which can serve as mas­ter key or master password, will be matched with the previously stored biometric profile and allow access only after positive authentication. Applications such as e-mail, e-commerce and home banking can jeopardize the secu­rity of private and shared data. Biometric authentication through fingerprints is one of the most secure access methods available. The addition of a fingerprint authentication helps pro­tect companies and individuals from attacks and misuse. In addition to providing secure sign-in and sign-off to Windows, the storage of pass­words in encrypted form and the encryption of files, CHIPDRIVE Smartcard Office 2.5 Biomet­ric includes the following software modules: - CHIPDRIVE Notepad encrypts and stores personal notations to keep them confiden­tial and protected from unauthorized access. - CHIPDRIVE Address Book automatically saves favorite bookmarks on the card so they are always ready for use at home or while traveling. - CHIPDRIVE Form Fill stores personal data (e.g., name, address, phone number) and on request can automatically fill in Internet-based forms for shopping, registration, etc. - CHIPDRIVE Smartcard Office 2.5 Biometric can be purchased at the CHIPDRIVE Online Shop or at specialized trade shops (Price: € 199,95, including a SPR337 fingerprint reader).
