SAN JOSE, Calif., Dec. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- BluStor PMC, Inc. introduced the world's first multi-factor, multi-biometric, Bluetooth® Mobile Security Solution: BluStor Secure Mobile Briefcase.
"BluStor separates the keys to mobile security from the device and protects the full stream of mobile security—device, user, and data. And, most importantly, BluStor features Bluetooth 4.0/LE, making the system compatible with virtually any mobile device and eliminating the need for proprietary card readers," commented BluStor CEO Finis Conner.
The BluStor Secure Mobile Briefcase (SMB) system virtually eliminates hacking and identity theft by using hardware (a high-capacity Bluetooth card) and software (an iOS or Android app) to enable multi-factor, multi-biometric ID authentication — ideal for applications such as BYOD, health care, schools, or anyone seeking a secure mobile experience.
How BluStor Secure Mobile Briefcase Works
Using the SMB app a user can protect the entire mobile device or designate a 'secure' area on the device. To access the SMB the user provides a biometric, such as fingerprint, iris, or voice, and that input is compared with the user's biometric files stored on the BluStor card. If the BluStor card is not within Bluetooth range, or the offered biometric does not match the stored file, the SMB remains locked.
BluStor card replaces a PIN or password with a secret key 'handshake' between the card and the user's mobile device. And multiple biometrics are stored in full detail (not reduced data sets) on the BluStor card, making it virtually impossible for a hacker to gain access to a user's device.
In addition to biometric security, the BluStor SMB app comes with password vault, file encryption, and more. And with 8GB of secure storage, the BluStor card has sufficient capacity for multiple biometric files and other data, such as email, work files, medical records, photos, music, and more. BluStor Secure Mobile Briefcase prototypes will be available for preview and testing in spring 2014; the solution will ship in fall 2014.
