Trek 2000 International Ltd, manufacturers of state-of-the-art design solutions ranging from portable storage devices to sophisticated ASIC (Application Specific Integrated Circuit) design today announced the launch of ThumbDrive SWIPE, the first USB portable storage device with the latest biometric capabilities, through its UK arm ThumbDrive (UK) Ltd.

Reflecting its name, the ThumbDrive SWIPE requires the user to ‘swipe’ his or her finger across the sensor for verification to access data stored in the device. With the SWIPE, the user has the option of either allowing access via finger print verification or password verification. The two key features of the SWIPE technology are its embedded data encryption and embedded cryptography functionality’s.

“ThumbDrive SWIPE is developed with the first swipe biometric fingerprint authentication solution. It is the most secure portable storage device to date - the act of swiping the finger ensures that fingerprints can not be taken from the device and copied – it will be highly suitable for executives who need to transport highly confidential, sensitive or valuable data,” said Rachel Lewis, sales manager, ThumbDrive UK Ltd.

ThumbDrive SWIPE is designed with busy, security conscious executives and professionals in mind. Especially for people on the move the security features embedded in the SWIPE offer a high level of comfort to owners in the event of loss or theft of the device. Data stored in the SWIPE will not allow unauthorized data access if the device requires swipe finger print verification.

Based on Trek's patented technologies, the ThumbDrive combines flash memory technologies with the ubiquitous USB connection to create a self-contained drive and media package the size of a thumb. It plugs directly into the USB port of any computer and can store virtually any digital data from documents, and presentations, to music and photos. Because Thumbdrive does not have any moving parts, it is extremely resistant to vibrations and shocks. ThumbDrive acts just like your hard drive. You can drag and drop files onto it, create, edit, delete files even formatting it.
