TAMPA, Fla., May 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Ceelox, Inc. (OTCBB: CELO) announced today that their Ceelox ID 7 PC Edition which operates on computers running Windows 7 has earned the "Compatible with Windows 7" logo for the new operating system. This logo indicates that Microsoft Corp. has deemed the product compatible with Windows 7.
Ceelox has redesigned their authentication approach to take advantage of the capability of Windows 7. As recognized by Microsoft, (1) biometrics is an increasingly popular technology that helps provide convenient access to systems, services, and resources. Biometrics relies on measuring an unchanging physical characteristic of a person to uniquely identify that person. Fingerprints are one of the most frequently used biometric characteristics, with millions of fingerprint biometric devices that are embedded in personal computers and peripherals.
Ceelox ID PC Edition controls local access to a user's computer and provides secure login sessions for programs such as Microsoft Outlook and other applications requiring traditional user name and password. The authentication of a user's biometric live swipe matched locally on the computer grants access only to the registered users. This offers increased security and restricts access to a user's applications and data on their personal computer.
"With this latest certification, Ceelox can now offer our Ceelox ID PC Edition product across multiple Microsoft platforms e.g. Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7. Through the use of a fingerprint, Ceelox provides an easy way to secure your personal computer from anyone else accessing your information contained on that computer," states Gerry Euston, CEO, Ceelox.
