Bionopoly FingerGearBootable USB Flash Drive from FingerGear : FingerGear, the consumer brand of security device leader Bionopoly LLC, released the USB Computer-On-a-Stick Professional Edition, the anticipated follow-up to its groundbreaking Computer-On-a-Stick USB Flash Drive. The original FingerGear Computer-On-a-Stick, announced in July 2005, is the first commercially available bootable USB Drive. The FingerGear PRO Edition goes one step further, allowing the user to access host PC files and other peripherals such as additional USB drives. The COS Pro features a complete onboard Operating System, the OpenOffice Suite, Evolution Email, Firefox Browser, together with dozens of the most commonly used preinstalled software applications.

It can be used as a completely self-contained portable Desktop System independent of the host system without leaving a trace once a session has ended. The COS Pro can also be used as an essential data recovery tool because it seamlessly bypasses the Windows login screen to recover critical data or to repair virus-infected files.

Bootable USB Flash Driver
The COS is compatible with virtually any PC which uses an x86 processor. Like Windows, the COS requires a password login each time the user begins a session. But unlike Windows, data stored on the device is encrypted using 256bit AES Encryption by default. Thus, it is not possible to extract usable data from flash memory if the device is lost or stolen. As a standard flash drive, however, one can share non-sensitive files easily without having to boot from the device by saving them to the device's Public partition.

COS Operating System - Password protection
Last but not least, the COS Operating System, which is Linux based, is write-protected, which prevents the device from becoming infected with, or inadvertently transferring viruses or worms to other systems. Biometric models of the COS will also be available next month. The Bio COS Touch Edition will allow login with either a password or a simple touch of the finger.

About Bionopoly FingerGear
FingerGear is the consumer brand of Bionopoly LLC. Bionopoly fills a tremendous void in the biometrics industry by targeting the low cost consumer marketplace. Until recently, the biometrics industry catered primarily to high-cost, sophisticated, database-driven applications used in law enforcement, building access, and time & attendance systems. Recognizing the significant drop in cost brought about by recent advances in fingerprint sensor technology, Bionopoly was formed to meet the inevitable demand for fingerprint security features in everyday consumer products ranging from door locks to point-of-sale terminals to refillable prescription bottles. No passwords or combinations to forget, and no keys to lose or have stolen. Bionopoly makes products more secure and more convenient to use. Bionopoly is a privately held company owned by its founders and a small group of angel investors.
