Articles about Us

Last year, ElcomSoft, a certified Microsoft partner in Russia, discovered that UPEK's fingerprint-reader program was storing Windows account passwords in the registry as plain text. The passwords were scrambled, but not encrypted, making them an easy target for hackers and cybercriminals.» Read more
