Sandberg Ahead of the Field with Biometric Data Protection with Fingerprint Hard Disk Box 2.5 Allows everyone to protect their data with their fingerprint.

Enfield, London 3rd February 2009, Sandberg, leading producer of quality computer accessories, has announced the new Fingerprint Hard Disk Box 2.5 This device allows everyone to protect their data with their fingerprint. Just think of the scandals that could have been avoided if civil servants had used this solution rather than just relying on simple USB sticks

fingerprint_hard_disk_300The Sandberg Fingerprint Hard Disk Box is a unique way of ensuring that only you have access to your personal data and sensitive information by way of your own fingerprint. It is easy to fit a 2.5" SATA hard disk in the box, and the box connects to your computer via a USB cable. Using the software provided, you can then define which areas of the hard disk are to be bio-encrypted and which areas other people can access, e.g. colleagues or family members. Should any unauthorised users get hold of the box, they will be unable to access your data held on this part of the hard disk.

The box is compact and handy to keep with you plus with just a push of a button on the box you can back up selected folders and files.

For security purposes it is possible to set the system so that it recognises several fingerprints, useful if your usual finger is injured for example or an employee and their boss can both access the same data. This way it is never possible to lose data that you have protected.

Product Manager Anders Petersen stated, "Creating a security system that protects against data loss and data misuse at the same time is complex. Using a fingerprint is a simple solution to a complex challenge. And even if someone with light fingers separates the box from the hard disk, the data still cannot be accessed without access to the person with the correct fingerprint."

With Sandberg products, reliability is assured - all products come with a 5 year guarantee.
