SP Industrial’s Safe And Secure Flash Solutions For Kiosks

The Pandemic’s Effect on Kiosks

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected our world in ways that will most likely live on, even after vaccinations become widely adopted and the number of cases steadily declines. One of the most apparent side-effects has been the push for less human contact, which has directly boosted the usage of kiosks. These contactless devices provide a safer way for people to sign-in to work or pass through public spaces such as shopping malls and transit stations. In addition to standard features such as facial recognition and multi-frequency RFID readers, newer technologies such as temperature measurement and face mask detection have become popular components due to the pandemic.

 

Safe and Secure Flash Solutions for Kiosks

For kiosks that rely on flash storage, a big advantage is that they can be easily removed or replaced, as the data on a microSD card can be reused from one device to another. However, it also means that any data stored on the device can be copied and reused in unintended ways. As kiosks store sensitive data such as customer or employee information and photos, it is critical to ensure that this information remains in authorized hands. SP Industrial’s flash solutions are equipped with a Host Lock feature to combat this type of vulnerability. It helps to inhibit a host without a password from reading from, writing to, or erasing the device, as well as to prevent an unauthorized user from copying data and reusing it without permission.

 

SDT330 and SDI330 microSD Card Series

To make the most of a kiosk’s performance, SP Industrial offers two industrial-grade microSD cards. The SDT330 and SDI330 series are both equipped with MLC NAND flash technology. Their high endurance and steady performance, in addition to the secure Host Lock feature, ensures reliable and constant functioning in high-traffic areas such as corporate offices, shopping malls, and transit stations.

 

Closing Thoughts

Kiosks have become an indispensable tool during the pandemic and their evolution isn’t going to slow down in the foreseeable future. SP Industrial expects their adaptation to continue to grow, even in the post-pandemic era. We are ready to support this uptrend demand for contactless technology with our industrial-grade microSD cards that provide reliable and secure storage of sensitive data.
