released by Matias
LAS VEGAS, January 6, 2015 — With mounting public concern over privacy and information security, Matias today announced its Secure Pro Keyboard — a wireless mechanical keyboard with 128‑bit AES encryption.
“We built the strongest crypto available into this keyboard,” said Edgar Matias, CEO of Matias. “Even with a supercomputer, it’s been estimated to take a billion-billion years to crack a 128‑bit AES key, using brute force methods. Whether you’re typing a password or entering bank information, encryption is essential for anyone using a wireless keyboard. The Secure Pro takes care of all that for you, automatically.”
The Secure Pro Keyboard uses Matias’ ALPS-inspired Quiet Click mechanical keyswitches, delivering the speed and comfort of a traditional mechanical keyboard, without the extra noise. Matias switches are also more tactile, making them better for typing than the Cherry mechanical keyswitches popular on high-end gaming keyboards.
“The Secure Pro is a perfect road warrior’s keyboard. It’s fast and feels great to type on — much better than the keyboard on your laptop. The smaller form factor, quiet switches, and encrypted wireless connection make it ideal for using safely and comfortably in public spaces — cafés, hotel rooms, you name it,” said Matias.
“To top it off, we put a ridiculously large 1,600 mAh rechargeable battery in it — big enough to last you 6 to 12 months on a single charge, so you’ll rarely ever have to worry about charging the battery,” added Matias.
The Secure Pro works with any computer equipped with a USB port. It will be on display at CES this week, in LVCC Booth #6419 (iLounge Pavilion).
In Europe, the Secure Pro will be available from The Keyboard Company, in UK, German, and Nordic layouts.
Co-founded by an inventor and an accountant, Matias led the way in re-establishing the mechanical keyboard market, starting in 2003 with the release of it’s award winning Tactile Pro Keyboard, and more recently with the development of its own ALPS-inspired Matias Mechanical Keyswitches.
