SmartSwipe now in the US

NetSecure Technologies recently announced that it has brought its SmartSwipe secure credit card reader to the US. The device plugs into a PC's USB port and lets users encrypt credit card data before it reaches the computer, keeping it safe from online attacks that might look for keyboard input. Paying for products and services purchased online is also potentially faster with the SmartSwipe, as users don't need to manually enter in their credit card information.

Supported credit cards include Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover, as well as most debit cards. Users need to be running a Windows XP or Vista system, and at least Internet Explorer 6.0 to use the device on the web. The SmartSwipe normally costs $100 CAD ($88 US).
