AES Software announces Password Manager 2.0
AES Software released version 2.0 of AES Password Manager, a password management solution for both home and office users. AES Password Manager provides a user or a group of users with a secure encrypted database that can be used to store any sensitive data such as logins and passwords, credit card numbers and security codes, PIN-codes, attached files and other data. The data can be categorized to facilitate further search.

AES Password Manager can be used in multi-user environments such as workgroups. The secure database can be accessed by multiple users simultaneously, each with their own login and password. Furthermore, the database administrator can manage privileges on a per-user basis, hiding specific items contained in the database or allowing read access only.

AES Password Manager also provides features that allow users to immediately fill in various forms with the data stored in the database. The Internet Explorer toolbar shipped with AES Password Manager integrates Web form saving and filling capability into Internet Explorer and the SuperPaste feature can be used to automatically enter data into any form in any application by simulating user keypresses.

The program employs the AES-256 encryption algorithm, which ensures your sensitive data is safe from hackers.

AES Password Manager protects users from data loss just as it protects them from hackers. The built-in backup feature will automatically make backup copies of the database.

The personal licence of the software retails for US$29 with the business licence selling for $US35. Volume discounts are also available.

Symbol releases mobile RFID reader
Symbol Technologies Inc. announced that it has launched the RD5000, a compact and mobile Gen 2 RFID reader that can be integrated with forklifts, pallet jacks, stretch wrappers and other material handling equipment.

The RD5000 mobile RFID reader can be mounted on a forklift with the Symbol VC5090 vehicle/fixed mount computer as part of an integrated forklift solution that reduces the need for drivers to spend time recording the receipt and movement of goods. By combining the RD5000 mobile RFID reader with the VC5090 vehicle/fixed mount computer, customers can speed product movement through the supply chain and track products, pallets and assets in a variety of locations.

The RD5000 mobile RFID reader features cable-free operation, an integrated antenna, Bluetooth communication capabilities and wireless connectivity. The reader’s small dimensions and Microsoft Windows CE 5.0 platform help ease the installation, maintenance and integration of the reader with existing processes and networks. The RD5000 mobile RFID reader will also support Symbol’s upcoming Wireless-Next Generation (Wi-NG) RF-switching system which will allow organizations to easily deploy and manage evolving RF networks from one central location.

The rugged design of the RD5000 RFID reader has been tested to withstand the shocks and blows that take place in extreme environments, and has been sealed to IP66 specifications for protection against dust and water. To maximize battery life during work shifts, the RD5000 mobile RFID reader is equipped with sensors that detect the device’s proximity to tagged items, shutting down when motionless or out of tag range.
