AuthenTec Unveils Compact, Low-Cost USB Fingerprint Reader For Today’s PC and Mac Notebooks


MELBOURNE, Fla. ---- AuthenTec (NASDAQ: AUTH), a leading provider of mobile and network security, today introduced what it believes is the world’s smallest, low cost USB fingerprint reader on the market today. The new “Eikon® mini” expands AuthenTec’s popular Eikon USB fingerprint reader family and breaks new ground in size, cost, security and convenience. The ergonomically designed Eikon mini integrates AuthenTec’s AES2660 smart fingerprint sensor and was designed specifically for notebooks, ultraportables and USB-equipped tablets to maximize user mobility. It easily plugs into PC and Mac notebooks to add strong fingerprint security and a host of user features without any USB cable.

When Eikon mini is plugged into a USB port of a notebook, one swipe of the finger allows users to:

Manage passwords
Automatically log into favorite websites
Quickly launch one or multiple websites
Lock and unlock files and folders (PC version only)
Protect a PC or Mac from access by unauthorized users

Unlike other USB fingerprint readers that are on a memory key or include a lengthy cable and are designed for desktops, Eikon mini can remain plugged into a notebook indefinitely, providing ultra-portable convenience and security for users in the office or on the road. It helps ensure that everyone’s online accounts remain private and secure by allowing individuals to use their fingerprint as the key to notebook access. Once plugged into a USB port, the Eikon mini measures only 0.6 inches (width) by 0.75 inches (length) by 0.5 inches (height). The Eikon mini’s sturdy yet compact design allows it to easily fit in a pocket, purse or computer bag, enabling secure and private access on any USB-equipped computer for users on the go.

“Our new Eikon mini sets a new standard for fingerprint reader size and cost and is ideally suited for notebook users in the office, home or on the go. It addresses the growing demand from users who want to easily add fingerprint security to a notebook, ultrabook or tablet that isn’t already equipped with an integrated fingerprint reader,” said Tom Aebli, AuthenTec Vice President of Software and eCommerce. “No other fingerprint reader on the market today offers mini’s compact size, affordability and compatibility with PCs and Macs.”

The Eikon mini is offered in both PC and Mac versions and can be purchased beginning on June 5 from the AuthenTec Web store and from Amazon. It includes AuthenTec’s TrueSuite® fingerprint sensor software and will be offered for a limited time during a launch promotion at under $10.00 from the AuthenTec store.
