Smart Keeper USB Closing Lock
Sometimes the permanent solution is the best protection. For preventing data breaches and system disruption through the many exposed USB ports with which so much of today’s hardware comes equipped, you can’t beat the Smart Keeper USB Closing Lock from Smart Keeper.
We mean that literally. You can’t beat it. Once the Smart Keeper USB Closing Lock is in place, it cannot be removed, period. While other port locks are available that respond to professional, programmed keys in the hands of authorized personnel, this one does not. Once it is in place, it stays there. Becoming a permanent part of the hardware unit, the Smart Keeper USB Closing Lock is on the job for good. When you require the highest level of security in facilities, operations, networks, or data centers – where breaches are not an option – then this is the port lock for you.
The Criticality of a USB Closing Lock
How important is it to have a permanent block for your unguarded USB ports? Well, it is so important that we see, unfortunately, some really inelegant answers out there. Even responsible operators and IT professionals are known to use epoxy or rubber cement to close-off unoccupied USB ports to prevent data contamination or unauthorized alteration of their system or network. How sad is that? The last time professionals depended on rubber cement was at the pre-digital copy desks of endangered-species daily newspapers.
When you consider that the most conspicuous, historic examples of virus deployment and cyber-sabotage were accomplished simply by scattering anonymous USB thumb drives in parking lots, then the importance of not leaving USB ports unoccupied becomes more emphatic. How widespread is this critical exposure? The unoccupied, unguarded USB ports in today’s workplace number in the hundreds of millions. Taken all together, they have been called a yawning symbol of inattention. Considering the widespread dependence on the Universal Serial Bus (USB) standard for connection, communication, and power supply, and the presence of these ports on all manner of computers, components, and peripheral devices, they constitute a huge proportion of the unguarded sector in the cybersecurity perimeter – the “open front door” of cybersecurity.
Once installed, the two anchoring teeth of the Smart Keeper USB Closing Lock are in fixed position, and the device simply cannot be removed without destroying the port, thoroughly defeating the purpose of any attempt at an invasive, unauthorized access to the USB port.
We stand ready to serve you with a vast, carefully curated array of cybersecurity devices at any time from Smart Keeper. Our experience and perspective enable you secure the physical access to your data and components, closing the open front door to the digital networks and information systems on which we all depend today.
