BankVault operates 100% independently of your computer or network. The key is safely saved on the BankVault USB drive, which is physically separate from your computer or network system.The only part of your machine that BankVault requires is the BIOS layer. Meaning, when you use BankVault you are not even booting up your machine’s full operating system. The BankVault software in the USB uses the BIOS layer only to connect to BankVault’s remote virtual machine cloud, which means it lacks an attackable surface. BankVault allows you to conduct transactions securely by creating a new path to the remote secure data center on each log in.
