Dolphin Digital Media Inc., a creator of secure social networking websites for children utilizing state-of-the-art fingerprint identification technology, is pleased to announce that has partnered with UPEK, Inc., a California company, to supply its award-winning Eikon biometric fingerprint readers in anticipation of the upcoming U.S. launch of Dolphin Digital Media's signature product, Dolphin Secure.
UPEK Inc., whose fingerprint sensors and software are integrated into tens of millions of laptops by the world's leading computer manufacturers, is considered the leader in biometric fingerprint security solutions. UPEK's Eikon Digital Privacy Manager is a USB peripheral that uses the same proven UPEK technology integrated into many laptops to offer the strongest fingerprint authentication security available along with the convenience of simply swiping a finger instead of typing passwords. By using the Eikon fingerprint reader and subscribing to Dolphin Secure, parents can rest assured that their kids are safe when they surf the Internet and interact online with friends.
Designed to eliminate the online anonymity that causes problems like cyber-bullying, Dolphin Secure lets families take advantage of all the social and educational benefits of the web, while giving parents the power to guide that experience -- even when they're not around. Dolphin Secure sets the standard for online safety by overcoming the inherent weaknesses of a password system and requiring a fingerprint authentication every time a user wants to go online.
"UPEK provides innovative and proven technology that focuses on what matters most to Dolphin Digital Media, security and authentication," said Bill O'Dowd, chief executive officer of Dolphin Digital Media, Inc. "We're looking forward to working with UPEK to supply their award-winning fingerprint readers, which are completely interoperable between PC and Mac computers," O'Dowd added.
"As a company that has successfully satisfied the authentication needs of businesses and public safety organizations, UPEK is aware of the growing imperative for better ways to keep our kids safe on the Internet," said Carl Temme, vice president of business development and strategic marketing at UPEK, Inc. "Bill and his team at Dolphin Digital Media have the right product coming out at the right time. All of us at UPEK are excited that our industry-leading fingerprint readers have been selected for use with Dolphin Secure," he added.
