Biometrics Encryption System – hard disk encryption with fingerprint authentication

The popular USB2.0 external storage device proves to be convenient for extra flexibilities in expanding storage and backup. It is also prone to loss or stolen. The dilemma is obvious. People usually choose PIN/Password authentication but unfortunately it is completely insecure. More, PIN/Password forgotten technical support calls are not unusual. Advanced users choose software disk encryption to safeguard their data in the disk drive. However, slow performance and compatibility issues, in additional to its questionable security, really have bogged down the usability.

So what's next?

The Biometrics Encryption System has the answer. It comes with an accurate fingerprint to replace your PIN/Password as authentication, and the Enova® X-Wall LX/XO cryptographic ASIC to safeguard your entire hard disk without losing performance and usability. The "Cryptographic Key" of X-Wall is hidden in scrambled form and can only be released upon correct authentication from the fingerprint sensor.

Ease of Use

Up to five (5) sets of fingerprints can be registered using provided application software. You don't have to memorize your password after you had successfully registered your fingerprints. Better yet, as the application software is pre-installed in the non-volatile memory of the product, you are permitted to change to various host PCs without duplicated registration, as long as the USB2.0 communication is allowed.

Enhanced Trusted Security

The fingerprints offer a simple way to replace your Password/PIN or Token as authentication. And the Enova® X-Wall LX cryptographic bridge chip secures the entire hard drive including boot sector and Operating System. You don't have to setup an encrypted folder like you used to do with using the software disk encryption utilities. The operation of encryption and decryption is automatic and transparent and there is absolutely no performance degradation. The "Cryptographic Key" will only be delivered to the X-Wall LX if and only if the authentication process is successful. The delivery of "Cryptographic Key" is essential as data residing on the hard drive will not be decrypted without it. Hardware security is hard security as Gartner put it:

"Hardware is also not invulnerable to attack, but it generally requires much more sophisticated attackers with larger budgets than those that typically succeed against software-only security options. When information is sensitive, valuable or 'must be trusted not to change', hardware has to be part of the solution."* Gartner Research Note COM-16-5309, 10 June 2002: "Software Security is Soft Security: Hardware is required"

Cost Effective

You don't have to pay hundreds of dollars for the complete solution. Simply use any available 2.5" standard hard drive and start enjoying the privacy and speed this product brings to you.
