  1. Millis, Massachusetts − April, 2005 − Kanguru Solutions announces the release of the
    Kanguru Bio Drive, their first USB2.0 flash drive made complete with a biometric
    fingerprint recognition sensor.
    The Kanguru Bio Drive provides a built-in biometric sensor that scans the user’s
    fingerprint, allowing access to an encrypted part of the drive once an exact fingerprint
    match is confirmed. Since an individual fingerprint acts as a password, the password to
    your secure Bio Drive is always at your fingertips. The Kanguru Bio Drive is able to
    store up to 5 fingerprints per drive, and offers the option to set a recovery password
    should the sensor undergo substantial damage.
    To begin using the Kanguru Bio Drive simply insert the drive into an available USB port
    and place a selected finger onto the sensor square on the center of the drive. During setup,
    the user is shown that the sensor is reading and recording the fingerprint until the
    print is fully captured. Once saved, any one of the five fingerprints can be recognized
    with up to 15 degrees of recognizable rotation. All fingerprint images are securely stored
    directly on the Kanguru Bio Drive, allowing the device to be used on any PC. All data on
    the Kanguru Bio Drive is stored in an encrypted section of the drive, which is only
    accessible with fingerprint authorization. The drive utilizes a high quality finger print
    sensor that has a false acceptance rate of 1 in 1,000,000 and false rejection rate of 1 in
    1000.
    Weighing in at 19 grams, this compact and lightweight Flash Drive makes for an equally
    portable and secure storage device. The Kanguru Bio Drive is also durable, as it resists up
    to 1000G of shock. It offers storage capacities ranging from 256MB up to 1G, and
    operates on Windows 98/SE/ME/2000/XP.
    A division of Interactive Media Corporation, Kanguru Solutions manufactures high
    quality, secure and portable computer storage and security peripherals that have provided
    consumers with secure back-up solutions for more than a decade. Interactive Media Corp.
    was established in Massachusetts in 1992. For more information on Kanguru Solutions,
