Monday 19 January 2004 00:14 CET | News

Rainbow Technologies has integrated Rainbows iKey USB authentication token with HIDs 125 kHz proximity access control technology into a single physical/data security device called the RFiKey.The RFiKey is the industrys first integrated physical/data access security token device designed for the USB form factor. It can give employees access to secure locations within their company and fine-grained access control to business-critical data and applications. A user simply waves the RFiKey in front of the HID door reader and a back-end credential checking system unlocks the door if access is authorised. At the individuals desk, the user inserts the RFiKey into the PCs USB port and logs into the corporate network using a PIN. If employees need a physical access device to move about inside the office, they need to bring their RFiKeys with them. Once the key token has been removed from the USB port, the session terminates and locks out insider security threats seeking to access corporate-critical data. The integration of the Rainbow iKey authentication token with HIDs market-leading physical access technology provides users with an access-control device that is anonymous to anyone but its intended user. If the RFiKey is lost, there are no photos or company names to allow someone to use it for physical access. And for users, it grants them access to the areas of their office they need to do their jobs and access to the data and applications that they need to be successful. Pricing and Availability The RFiKey has a U.S. list price of $35 to $65 depending on the version of iKey used for end user authentication.
