Features & Specs
Smart Keeper USB Port Lock for Type C
Striking a balance between the latest speeds and the versatility that’s demanded for compatibility with your existing data system and information network, Type C USB ports and connectors were rapidly accepted and deployed when the specification was finalized in 2014 and adopted by the IEC in 2016. Developed at about the same time as USB 3.1 and the SuperSpeed+ transfer rates it made possible, the Type C, or USB-C, accommodates data modes that are thoroughly up to date without compromising operations with earlier systems. No wonder we see it everywhere today.
Unfortunately, another thing we see everywhere is that these USB-C ports are still commonly left unguarded. Open to insertion of potentially contaminated devices, or even purpose-built viruses, ransomware, or Trojan-horse infections. Thankfully, the device that can physically block access to your Type C USB data ports and connections is readily available – the Smart Keeper USB Port Lock for Type C – from The Connectivity Center.
Easy, Simple, Visible, and Secure
Part of the thoughtfully designed, accomplished, and proven Smart Keeper line of network security protection devices, the Smart Keeper USB Port Lock for Type C data ports and connections is the quickest and easiest USB port lock to install, physically blocking access to any unused USB port in your system. It needs no electricity or upgrade to install, no software or programming to operate, and requires no maintenance.
Color coding is built into the system, so that four different levels of personnel access are easily deployed. Blue, yellow, brown, or purple locks can be selected for any given USB port. Matched with a Smart Keeper USB Port Lock Key
of the same color, you are up and running with a controlled-access system for physical cybersecurity protection in minutes.
