iQBioDrive Uses Fingerprint Security Technology
iQBio, a subsidiary of Artemis Solutions Group, yesterday announced a 100GB portable hard drive which makes use of fingerprint encryption and security software to protect its contents. The new 100GB Portable iQBioDrive is priced at $299.95 and, if you care about this thing, is designed and assembled here in the good old U.S. of A.
The iQBioDrive is reportedly secured by 128bit AES encryption and makes use of the company’s BioCert fingerprint technology. According to iQBio, the drive is “partitioned into three ‘mapped drives’ on Windows 2000 (SP3) or Windows XP systems. The first is a partition that is seen by the system as a read only drive and contains the biometric encryption software. The second partition is set at 100MB or so…and is a public partition where files may be stored and used without biometric authentication…The last partition is the secure drive that can only be accessed through the use of biometric authentication or a 256 character override password.”
