It calls for protecting the hardware, the software, the data within, and the cloud-based, non-physical space on which data are increasingly stored against theft, damage, contamination, and the misdirection or disruption of the vital functions that our information systems perform.

When we put it this way, it doesn’t take much space to summarize computer system security. Yet, to say this description is deceptively simple would be a vast understatement. The true scale of the challenge seems to dwarf anything in prior human experience. And to say that the stakes are high would not begin to cover it, because everything today – business, government, defense, finance, utilities, public services, and even the arts and sciences – depends on effective computer system security.

Against this vast and urgent backdrop, cybersecurity spending is projected to rise to $6 trillion globally by 2021, and most of this investment is devoted to the non-physical world of software, programs, and platforms. Most solutions are designed to react to an incursion, rather than to prevent it. Focusing on invisible solutions for invisible threats might seem logical, but it has led to a peculiar and illogical condition: The billions of actual data ports and connectors that turn computers into networks and systems are unguarded.

Locking the Open Front Door of Cybersecurity

The Connectivity Center offers an array of products and knowledge that can help you secure the front door of cybersecurity, and they are ready today. The experience, perspective, and expertise you’ll find at The Connectivity Center was built with care, from the time when servers began replacing mainframes, through the time when personal computing and dispersed computer operations expanded the exposure to mishaps and threats exponentially, through today and tomorrow, in a continuum of awareness and expertise.

Our hundreds of computer system security solutions include the Smart Keeper collection of computer and laptop security devices, which to protect the ports through which some of the biggest, most historic cyber-attacks were perpetrated, and where even casual contamination occurs somewhere every hour of every day.

Our Link Lock connectors and the Link Lock Hub serve not only as secure USB connections, but also lock your devices so that they cannot be removed without authorized access. The Link Lock Hub is secured using a Smart Keeper USB Port Lock Professional in conjunction with a Smart Keeper USB Port Lock Key. The Professional Series key comprises an ergonomic, retractable housing with anti-static rubber grip, LED light for low visibility work areas, and dual-retractors – main and peripheral – for reaching port locks in confined spaces. The key patterns are strictly controlled, yet you can order duplicate keys to suit your own security authorization structure.

These are just a few of the hundreds of ways The Connectivity Center offers computer system security protection for the vital flow of data on which your enterprise depends. Our experience, quality, variety, value, and versatility are at your service.
