This new security product from Google has been named Project Vault for now which is subject to change as the development progresses. Project Vault was announced at the I/O developer conference which took place on Friday.

The Vault card will also be utilizing near field communication (NFC) to communicate with nearby devices. Despite being created by Google, Project Vault will release for Windows, Apple OS X and Android.

Initially, Project Vault will be made available to different enterprises. If it proves to be a success there, only then will Google release it for the general public.
