Though only sold with the company's Pro software packages, the DigitalPersona U.are.U Fingerprint Keyboard may make things simpler for governments, businesses and other institutions that ask for extra security at each computer. It not only integrates a reader directly into the keyboard, it simplifies the process by eliminating the need for swiping the digit, and (depending on settings) can be used to automatically log-on to computers and networks, or lock and unlock operating systems. Only Windows 2000, 2003 Server and XP Professional systems are supported. Both the Pro Workstation and Pro Kiosk packages cost $169.
