With the workforce becoming increasingly mobile there is a large amount of confidential business, customer and personal information being stored on laptops. The loss, or theft, of a laptop containing confidential business, customer or personal information can leave you open to loss of critical business information, identify theft and possible legal action by your customers. With the implementation of increased regulatory requirements, HIPPA, Sarbanes-Oxley etc there is also the possibility of action being taken under those acts.
"We need to ensure that this confidential data does not fall into the wrong hands" said Rob van Gils - VP Sales & Marketing, 21st Century Locks, Ltd. "Protecting this information is important not only for your business but also for your customers."
"The recent theft of a laptop containing blood donor personal information highlights the need to to take extra precautions in protecting sensitive data."
"The ClipDrive Bio Fingerprint USB Flash Drive and Outbacker Fingerprint USB Hard Disk Drives provide the most secure and efficient portable data storage available," said Rob van Gils - VP Sales & Marketing, 21st Century Locks, Ltd. "The devices are non-operational until a validated fingerprint is received. Once the device is activated it functions just like another drive on your PC. The drives have both public and private sectors, the public sector is available to all registered users and each user can have their own private sector which requires a password to access," he said.
"Because all biometric and fingerprint templates are saved in hardware and not storage media unauthorized users cannot access the device should it be lost or stolen."
