REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Nov. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- DigitalPersona, Inc., the leader in fingerprint identity solutions, today announced DigitalPersona Personal 4.0, an easy-to-use identity protection suite for individuals, family members and business users. DigitalPersona Personal 4.0 is the first identity protection suite to use biometrics, letting people use their fingerprints to access online accounts -- including email, banking, shopping, and other Web sites -- to provide a critical, additional layer of security against identity theft. The patent-pending software also provides optional protection for people's personal files, photographs, financial records and other sensitive information. DigitalPersona Personal 4.0 supports swipe-style sensors built into notebook computers as well as add-on peripherals such as the company's new U.are.U(R) 4500 line of high-performance touch readers.

"Identity theft is continuing to rise worldwide, and in these tough economic times identity protection is more important than ever," said Jim Fulton, vice president of marketing at DigitalPersona. "With DigitalPersona Personal 4.0, fingerprints ensure that only the right individual can access accounts. This adds to the security offered by tools like anti-virus and provides a natural way for people to be safer online."

DigitalPersona Personal 4.0 is the latest release of DigitalPersona's line of consumer software that has been pre-loaded on millions of PCs worldwide by major computer manufacturers. This new version offers:

    --  Protected access to the PC and online accounts -- for safer email,
        banking, shopping and Web use.
    --  At-a-glance identity protection monitoring -- providing users with
        best practices to stay safe online.
    --  Safe and easy sharing of PCs with friends, co-workers and family.
    --  Optional file protection with powerful encryption technology for
        sensitive documents or folders.

DigitalPersona Personal 4.0 runs on Windows XP and Windows Vista and can be used on biometrically-enabled notebook computers and on PCs with add-on fingerprint peripherals. The software can be purchased with a swipe-style fingerprint reader, the type commonly built into notebooks, or with the company's new U.are.U 4500 high-performance touch reader.
