“Today we have passwords, account numbers and other important information that we as humans have a hard time remembering but computers can crack,” said Tareq Risheq, Arkami president and CEO. “myIDkey is the answer to solving our broken system of storing passwords and critical information.”
“myIDkey represents a most important kind of innovation – the kind that directly impacts peoples’ daily lives,” added Mark Thacker, Arkami COO. “Our secure and portable password/ID manager saves lost hours trying to find and manage passwords and accounts, while offering peace of mind from hackers and thieves.”
Built on an industry-leading ARM-based microcontroller, myIDkey secures ID and passwords on a USB device which features a bright, viewable OLED screen, embedded biometric activation, and voice search for quick access to critical information. myIDkey is backed up by a secure cloud-based ecosystem which can automatically synchronize across your cloud, key, and devices giving access to information securely from anywhere at any time. Auto form filling, sync services and security alerts can also be managed.
