RFID Shielding Card & ePass Protectors
For the first time in promotional marketing, we can offer a solution that makes your Business Card one that will be seen every day and not thrown away or placed in a dark drawer or holder.
Our patented VB Shield can be printed with your business card information to provide an executive-class, must-keep business card that will ensure prospective and existing clients, customers and working partners always carry the brand of your company.
In addition, you will be protecting your staff as they travel the world doing business for you or while they are on vacation.
If you supply any kind of plastic card to clients as a loyalty, membership or gift voucher in retail, VoyagerBlue can supply you with a branded RFID / Contactless shielding version of that card, emphasising one of the strongest brand propositions of any card of its kind, one you know will always be carried in the wallet or purse, not left at home or in the glove compartment. “Carrying to protect.”
VoyagerBlue’s RFID / Contactless technology utilises engineered and sustainable elements, with no components that break, wear or stop performing, and will last for years!
Data from all contactless credit and debit cards can be accessed using free to download apps but perhaps the biggest threat is accidental payment and double charging. Think it doesn’t happen? All you need do is review the Transport For London (TFL) website to understand just what a problem it is to one of the worlds largest Mass Transit Railways (MTR) networks.
How safe is my passport data?
Little do people know that the technology used in the worlds e-Passport, or biometric passports as they are also known, use the same chip technology operating at 13.56 MHz as do your RFID/Credit and debit cards.
When the e-Passport was developed, NFC enabled phones were virtually unheard of, and as such offered no threat. However, today’s very sophisticated phones with integrated NFC (13.56MHz) reading capability can communicate with any biometric e-passport. (except the US passport – when the passport is closed).
For sure, there are security features embedded making it difficult, but perhaps not impossible to compromise, and it’s worth remembering “PhD’s don’t only work for Governments.” Recent articles across the globe talk about our very precious data being accessed and used in ways never intended by the authorities.
Free-to-download apps are available on the Google play store which are able to read your e-Passport and your credit/debit cards, and we wonder how long it will be before a longer-range reader is developed, capable of stealing your data a distance greater than 4 cm. Data such as photograph, first and last name, date of birth, passport number, issue and expiry date. All this data is stored within the first few groups of stored data on the passport, and only protected by a solution called Basic Access Control, (BAC).
VoyagerBlue has a very effective Patented RFID shielding solution for biometric passports that simply slips inside the passport, generally next to the data or photograph page, and when inserted offers and exceptional shielding solution. VB’s e-Pass shield is very much appropriate to governments wishing to enhance security, and should be treated as an additional security feature, just like all the others: Basic Access Control (BAC) Extended Access Control (EAC) and Active Authentication (AA), as well as any other micro print and optical variable devices (OVD) used in today’s secure documents.
Finally, the VB e-Pass shield acts as a spine to the biometric e-passports offering additional protection to the embedded chip helping prevent impact damage and breakage of the chip.
