Verbatim launches Fingerprint Secure Hard Drive with 256-bit Encryption
The new Verbatim Fingerprint Secure Hard Drive uses a combination of AES 256-bit hardware encryption and biometric technology to encrypt all data on the drive in real-time.
The external hard drive is compliant with GDPR requirements as 100% of the drive is securely encrypted.
The built-in fingerprint recognition system in the Verbatim HDD allows access for up to eight authorized users and one administrator. Once set up, users can lock and unlock the device in seconds by just using their registered fingerprint. The hard drive does not store passwords in the computer or system's volatile memory making it far more secure than software encryption.
After setting up the fingerprints using a Windows PC, the Verbatim Fingerprint Secure Hard Drive can be used on both PC and Mac operating systems. The drive has a USB 3.1 GEN 1 interface with USB-C connection for fast data transfer speeds and the pack includes a USB-C to USB-A cable as well as a USB-C adapter for connection to a range of devices. It can also be connected to TVs once a fingerprint is registered, a feature which is not possible with regular encrypted hard drives.
Nero Backup software for Windows is provided to help users back up all files, folders, and drives from laptops or PCs as well as schedule auto back up to a set time and day.
