The famous peripheral equipment manufacturer, Cherry, presents the future of the field from its personal point of view: a mouse that will allow you to enter the system with a secure biometric without the need for additional external means
While Apple and Microsoft may claim to have equally good and reliable visual technologies, veteran fingerprint scanners still seem to have a significant fan base in the field of secure access to computers and other personal smart devices - and after getting used to seeing these little circles and squares in almost every Unlocked And in every price category in the market, and we even began to see them as part of the touchpad in a variety of computers Mobile, The next step may be to find them in our computer mice as well.
The Korean company Cherry, which sells mainly thanks to the mechanical pressing mechanisms it develops for a large part of the gaming keyboards on the market, introduces a new mouse that is specifically designed for the business market, with a nice infrared optical sensor of 1,375DPI (dots per square inch) - and especially with Fingerprint scanner Which is built into the front part, under the pulley, which is secured by the AES standard of 128 bit.
The sensor in question supports technology Windows Hello of Microsoft Office In Windows 10, and is designed to provide a secure and convenient access capability for the computer system - without taking your hand off the main control for most users, and as a possible addition to infrared cameras with built-in face detection capabilities in some systems that will provide an extra layer of protection.
The 4900 MC mouse will be offered with dedicated development tools that can enable integration of its biometric capabilities into non-operating systems Windows 10 (MacOS and distributions Linux, For example), and will carry a recommended price tag of 110 euros or 130 dollars which is definitely not cheap for any mouse, and in particular one in a wired connection and has a fairly generic design - but the main meaning here is the very proof of the ability to integrate a fingerprint sensor into our computerized voting means. Cherry's competitiveness vis-à-vis larger and much more established manufacturers.
This is an original and refreshing combination, and we will not be surprised if this is the first swallow of a trend that will be adopted by all the other players who will begin to convince us that a biometric scanner is the ultimate security solution for us. Agree with us, or believe it is a gimmick which will quickly disappear? Share comments.
