Centralized data such as "Cloud" storage is fundamentally less safe than distributed data. If you have a million records on a central computer a hacker only needs to get it right one time to get his hands on the million records of data. If however the same data records were distributed across a million individuals then the would-be hacker would need to successfully hack a million times to collect the same amount of data. This is the inherent weakness and security flaw in the "Cloud" computing model, Chaya Hendrick said.
The SmartMetric approach is to have a de-centralized data storage approach that has the individual hold their own data on a new type of device that is protected using the SmartMetric miniature biometric fingerprint scanner. The company will release further information about this new data storage product in the coming weeks along with its scheduled sales release by the end of this year.
On August the 26th SmartMetric Inc. is publicly releasing for sale its new Electronic Health Records (EHR) product that is protected by the company's "world's smallest" biometric fingerprint reader and authorization system, called the MedicalKeyring.
