Cyclades Corp. provides network access to console ports controlled by fingerprint-recognition technology. The AlterPath Bio, a biometric scanner used in conjunction with Cyclades advanced console servers, further enhances remote access and management by adding another layer of network security for system administrators managing critical network infrastructure. The AlterPath Bio is a small, portable USB device (about size of a memory stick) that combines storage for security access keys with a fingerprint scanner. It complements the set of security features in Cyclades console servers, a market reference for secure remote access and management. User authentication is key to maintaining network infrastructure security.
