Realm Uses Biometrics To Secure Mobile Networks
Realm Uses Biometrics To Secure Mobile Networks

As more enterprises increase their employees' mobility by providing various wireless devices that include laptop computers and PDAs, security risks rise. Realm Systems has developed a centralized, back-end system that secures mobile networks, enabling customers to go about mobilizing their workforce without security concerns.

The platform consists of two key elements,  the Realm Mobile Personal Server (MPS) and the Realm SOBA Router. Taken together, these two elements combine to offer a computing platform that makes it much easier to securely deliver desktop and applications to mobile corporate end users.

Realm's MPS is about the size of a cell phone and allows users to securely access their enterprise applications on any PC. The Realm MPS enables enterprise employees to take their corporate networks with them everywhere they go. It is designed to recreate the look and feel of whatever native operating system was being used. This can help users immediately get to work, rather than familiarizing themselves with unfamiliar layouts.

Meanwhile, the Realm SOBA Router maximizes desktop control and security, while significantly lowering desktop maintenance costs. IT Managers are able to maintain thousands of users, secure and enable enterprise applications, and increase ROI on their existing Web Services investment.

Each time a user access a network, a biometric fingerprint reader performs a security scan. And should an MPS be stolen or ascertained that an unauthorized user is accessing it, it can remotely be rendered useless with a 'poison pill,' technology.

Technology which increases ROI includes a built-in biometric identification system and password solution. No long boot up is required, the system authenticates users through a 2048-bit encrypted VPN tunnel which is established every time the MPS is connected to a computer with an Internet connection. This provides true end-point secure access to files, applications and enterprise services without jeopardizing.

"Realm will mobilize the corporate end user and free IT from desktop maintenance," said Rick White, CEO, Realm Systems. "Our new MPS and SOBA Router are combining the power of the enterprise network with the simplicity of a secure USB powered device to create a revolution in mobile computing. With Realm, any computer, any operating system, anywhere, is your computer."

The Realm MPS is very easy to use, White explains. It is a plug and play device that is USB powered. It comes with an embedded operating system with up to 64MB of DRAM, dual 425mhz PowerPC processors, up to 1GB of flash using either an SD expansion slot or up to a 20GB hard drive. Enterprise IT can control and provision what is available for their end users-data, applications, Web Services, and desktop look and feel.

"With the MPS intermittent connectivity capability, the enterprise user can literally stop writing mid-sentence in their word processor or other application, unplug and go, then plug in at another location and the cursor will be waiting in the same place," White adds.

would it not be feasible to use an eyeprint instead of a thumb or fingerprint, by having the user stare into the tiny camera of the handset?
