Secure Solution offers peace of mind
The first fold-out USB Flash Drive with in-built Fingerprint Recognition has launched in Australia through SecureStix Innovations International, a Brisbane based technology solutions company.
The sleek USB Flash Drive has a special fold-out fingerprint reader built into the slimline design to enable files to be 100% protected and give the owner 100% peace of mind.
Protected files can only be accessed by the user swiping their finger on the reader. With no two people having the same fingerprint, the owner of the USB Flash Drive can be reassured their files are safe from unwanted eyes.
“Ten years ago credit card fraud was seldom heard of, now it’s a part of our everyday life,” Ashton said.
“The next big concern is already on our doorstop, being the theft of private information for uses such as espionage; on-selling of information, creation of new accounts, licenses, companies and even the purchase of properties and titles…the list goes on.
“SecureStix Innovations International was formed to meet the growing requirements for secure solutions to combat these types of activity without restricting organisations and individuals from their everyday lives,” Ashton said.
“The SecureStix devices are ideal as it is the most compact and secure form of storage available,” said Ashton.
The idea is certainly catching on, with Ashton establishing agents in not only Australia but also the UK and the USA, with interest in Iran, South Africa, France and Portugal, in only four months.
“We have had immense demand for our products overseas and Australian businesses are now realising the risks associated with unprotected data,” Ashton said.
“In the USA, Security Breach privacy policies have penalties ranging from $1,000 to $55,000 US per day for failure to comply and imprisonment for up to 5 years.
“It’s only a matter of time before an ill-prepared Australian company ends up in court over lapse privacy adherence,” Ashton said.
SecureStix Innovations International offers to its customers the SecureStix 1GB, 2GB & 4GB USB Flash Drives with fingerprint recognition - and a Pink version for chicks with style.
SecureStix also offer password protection software for standard USB flash drives.
