Digital security firm Gemalto has launched a solution designed to  protect users against internet threats.

The Gemalto Network Identity Manager (NIM), plugs into a USB port, works with a standard browser, runs on any PC and does not require software installation.

Gemalto claimed the product was the first zero-infrastructure smart card type of device and the first portable online security solution with its own internet software and hardware.

“Consumers are already struggling with multiple screen logins, challenge/response, one-time passwords and other security measures when conducting online transactions,” Sally Hudson, a research director at IDC, said.

“In addition to contributing to user confusion and overall inconvenience, some of these approaches still leave gaps in security. A single form factor that allows consumers to securely ‘plug and play’ should prove appealing to a wide range of technology adopters,” she added.
