In today’s digital age, data security is of utmost importance, especially when it comes to personal computers. Kensington has been the leader in device security for decades, and now it has introduced the Kensington VeriMark USB Fingerprint Key Reader to provide simple, fast, and secure Windows login and a seamless two-factor authentication experience. This advanced fingerprint technology offers 360° readability with anti-spoofing protection while exceeding industry standards for False Rejection Rate (3%) and False Acceptance Rate (0.002%).
Kensington’s VeriMark USB Fingerprint Key Reader is compatible with Windows Hello, Windows 10 or later, and it can be used with up to 10 different fingerprints, allowing multiple users to log in to the same computer without remembering usernames and passwords. This biometric data is encrypted and digitally signed using strong 256-bit advanced encryption standard and transport layer security technologies to prevent eavesdropping, tampering, or fraud. One-way conversion of biometric data into a proprietary template format prevents re-creation, reverse-engineering, or use for unintended purposes, thereby protecting the user from identity theft.
Additionally, the VeriMark Fingerprint Key Reader is FIDO U2F Certified, which means that your fingerprint can protect your cloud-based accounts such as Google, Dropbox, GitHub, and Facebook with FIDO second-factor authentication (requires Chrome or Chromium-based browser such as Opera). This adds an extra layer of security and makes it difficult for unauthorized users to gain access to your personal information.
The compact design of the VeriMark USB Fingerprint Key Reader easily attaches to a standard key ring, allowing for convenient portability. It works in any PC, including Surface Pro 7/7+/6/5/4, or docking station USB A port (USB 2.0, 3.0, 3.1). It also works in a USB-C port with a USB-C male to USB-A female adapter (not included). However, it is not compatible with Mac OS or Linux.
The VeriMark USB Fingerprint Key Reader is not only secure but also practical. It supports popular password manager tools like Dashlane, LastPass (Premium), Keeper (Premium), and Roboform, allowing the fingerprint to authenticate and automatically fill in usernames and passwords for websites.
Kensington VeriMark USB Fingerprint Key Reader offers the latest in biometric technology, providing a secure and convenient way to log in to your computer and access your cloud-based accounts. With Kensington’s reputation for quality and innovation, you can trust that your personal information is safe and secure.
