You wouldn't think there would be much to say about a USB flash drive, but in this case, what you say, and how you say it, is your key to data security. Advanced technical skills are definitely not required, because this is a plug-and-play device, requiring no software installation. All critical software is embedded in the flash drive itself, and it is fully functional the moment it is removed from the box.
After inserting the USB into a computer, red and green LEDs flash to signal to the user that the drive is ready to hear the password through its on-board microphone. Armed with a dedicated on-board microprocessor, the drive's voice-recognition software then sorts out the various nuances and frequencies of an authorized voice, and the only necessary password is a spoken one.
The caveat of course, is any sort of illness which may alter one's voice, such as laryngitis, the common cold, or even a lack of sleep, which could prevent unlocking the data. An alternate method of securely unlocking files is provided should that occur. That procedure requires recognizing, and responding to, a specific sequence of flashing color LEDs. That pattern-recognition password is also secure and easy to use, because it is a combination that has been predetermined by the user, just as the user also chooses the spoken password.
As a result this handy little gadget, called Voicelok™, is actually two security products in one, and can be utilized by non-voice users. In fact, this is the only dual security solution that does not require complicated software installation, and provides peace of mind for non-technical individuals. This device does not require additional laptop parts, such as TPMs (Trusted Platform Modules) now beginning to appear in some ultrabooks and ultrathins.
For those working in healthcare, financial and other data-sensitive industries, security is always a concern. Protection against identity theft, and theft of user-names and passwords would rank high on any list of data security issues.
In addition to being the world’s first voice-code security USB drive, Voicelok is also the world's smallest dual-security, USB flash drive. Hammacher Schlemmer is a vendor, and provides a lifetime guarantee.
