The coming of the digital age was described at first as a new Gold Rush, with oceans of venture capital thrown at un-monetized business models, and schemes that later burst as the “dot-com bubble.” Later, the digital landscape earned another nickname, “the Wild West,” because of the disorder and seeming lawlessness that came with a vast, new, unexplored territory.

Today, practically no one even tries to nickname the digital universe. It pretty nearly defies description. One thing is clear, though. Data is the new, universal currency. And the means of protecting it are far from mature.

The Missing Piece of Protection

What’s missing in most organizations is systematic protection for the physical points of access to their data network and information systems. Ports and connectors remain unguarded in most operations, and without them enterprises lack a vital sector of cybersecurity solutions.

Building on a vast body of experience in Europe, North America, and abroad, The Connectivity Center has assembled the most complete portfolio of products to defend your computer network ports from interference, infection, and compromise, either intentional or unintentional. Under one roof, the devices that can secure your network are arrayed online for easy selection and reasonable purchase.

A real cybersecurity strategy makes a priority of protecting the physical points of access to your network, because online and intentional incursions probably represent less than half the threats you face.

Far more common exposures to security breach and compromise come from the casual user, the unintentional infection, and the authorized network operative who is careless about data ports and connections. Thumb drives and even smart phones infect your computer network with any and all forms of contamination those devices might have picked up in the vast digital world.

And the points of entry are hiding in plain sight – the connectors and USB ports of your computer network.

The Source for Solutions

Fortunately, the source you can count on to provide protection for those physical entry points is just as visible as the gaping threat. The Connectivity Center offers a carefully curated array of devices to secure the unguarded physical sector of your cybersecurity strategy. Here, the solutions you need are always available, and always up-to-date, with quality, value, variety, and versatility you can rely on.

You can select Link Lock connectors, the Link Lock Hub, and components that enable all your data sources to work together, as well as USB and firewire elements that range from connecting keyboards and monitors, to empowering video cables and card reader systems. PC peripherals and system components for networking – such as cables that connect computers – are here for you, too.

Our perspective on the physical sector of cybersecurity, the vulnerabilities that you can see, is our over-arching focus. One result of this experience and focus is the Smart Keeper series of port blockers. With serialized keys that enable access only from authorized users, Smart Keeper assures you that access goes only to those persons with “need to know” and “need to use” authority within your organization, without the expense and complication of Network Access Controls.

Cybersecurity programs and software look for anomalies in behavior on the data system. Stepping back, surely the biggest anomaly of all is leaving the visible, physical access points unprotected.
