New Portable Encryption Device Protects From Cyber-Gangsters
Users Can Move Seamlessly Between All Desktops

Memory Experts International (MXI), a leading provider of secure, portable data storage devices, is debuting Stealth, a 3x3.5 inch, USB with a 256 Bit AES hardware encryption engine that delivers the ability to move, seamlessly, from one desktop to another, regardless of the operating system, manufacturer, location, or connection to a private or public network.

In development for the last 12 months, Stealth, with its on-board CPU and hardware based cryptographic engine, is completely self-sufficient and works on Windows 2000, XP (Pro & Home), MAC and Linux systems. Biometric fingerprint password authentication occurs within the device and the authentication data never leaves Stealth. This feature offers superior security than traditional products, which require the host PC to capture and process biometric and password samples. Saved data is stored either on flash memory or on a micro drive providing data storage ranging from 64MB up to 4GB.

"Cyber thieves are on a major e-crime wave the world over," said Mike Kieran, director of sales and marketing for MXI. "North America and Europe are being especially targeted, and the US is most vulnerable as encrypted desktops and devices run in the low single digit percentages," he added. "Our best defense is to deny access to important data through the use of portable encrypted devices such as Stealth," said Kieran.

The Honeynet Project estimates that over a million internet-connected computers, the majority of which are running Windows XP and Windows 2000 are compromised and open to mass ID theft. The research completed in March 2005, revealed the tracking of more than 100 botnets in four months and that some of the larger zombie networks were comprised of up to 50,000 hijacked machines that were using a Honeynet.

"Stealth meets all off the requirements that our customers in the military, banking and large corporations have asked for, it's driverless, stand-alone, and offers hardware-based encryption with on-board authentication and encryption," said Kieran.

Using MXI's Secure Storage SDK, third party developers can leverage the advanced secure storage and authentication features of Stealth for their own applications, such as strong authentication, digital identities, single sign-on, and data security. Additional features include zero footprint device usage, biometric (fingerprint) security access , 4-40 character password, on board CPU and hardware based crypto engine, and storage capacity of 64MB to 4GB Flash or 2GB micro drive.
