BlurPort is putting a cool twist to securing your USB devices.Â From flash drives to hard drives BlurPort has you covered.
The product can be found (and funded) on Kickstarter right now.Â The concept is the BlurPort device is an 8GB stick…but it’s more.Â The BlurPort uses a multi-factor authentication method to unlock your digital content.Â Meaning you need the knowledge of the password and you need a physical device to act as the token.Â What is the physical device you ask?Â Simple:Â your smartphone.
The BlurPort app on your phone will offer many different ways to authenticate yourself, from facial recognition and eye scanning to NFC tokens, even pattern trace passwords.
So who wants another 8GB flash drive…well the BlurPort can also grant access to your USB hard drive and other storage devices.Â By removing the tail end of the BlurPort you now have a female USB socket for connecting another USB peripheral.Â This is where we believe the product is very unique.Â The BlurPort (now you can understand the name) is the gate-keeper for all your USB devices.Â It’s the digital road block to access and only your dual authentication will grant access.
