The Stealth Key M700 Bio from MXI Security is more than just a USB flash drive with a fingerprint reader.
This drive allows fully manageable multifactor authentication, including any combination of fingerprint, PIN and smart card. This provides ultimate security over files without the need of third-party encryption products.
Installation is simple with the software already running on the device. All we had to do was plug it in, enrol and we were ready to go. The ACCESS management interface built into the device allows for simple administration, including user management and access to logs.
However, this interface can be taken to the next level with the ACCESS Enterprise AE Manager. This takes all the functionality of the built-in ACCESS Manager and integrates it into the enterprise environment. With this management interface, administrators can provision and manage many devices throughout the enterprise - leveraging Active Directory and controls. Pair that with auditing and reporting and you have an advanced USB flash drive.
Documentation included a PDF quick-start, standard user and enterprise administrator guides. We found all the documents to be well-organiwed with easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions.
MXI offers one year of hardware and technical support with the purchase of the solution. After the first year, customers can buy support as part of a yearly maintenance plan. Support runs eight-hours-a-day/five-days-a-week phone and email.
At a price starting at $US125 ($A123) for the 1 GB model, we find this tool to be an excellent value for the money. The Stealth Key M700 Bio offers a lot of manageable functionality with biometric security at a reasonable price.
An excellent option for a secure USB key.
