You're Spending Thousands on Cybersecurity? But What About Physical Security?

Whenever one of your employees plugs in her mobile device, or syncs his contacts with his computer at work, they open the workplace digital network to anything their mobile device has picked up from the Web.

    HUNTSVILLE, AL, August 19, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Just one form of predatory cyber-attack – ransomware – is said to have affected 47% of U.S. businesses since 2013. The experience of having to pay to get your business back from a hacker is one that no executive will ever forget, and just the threat of it is enough to add further fuel to the growth of the $170 billion annual expense of cybersecurity. No wonder the search for the best computer security measures is so intense and constant.

This is barely the beginning. The forms of attack and contamination that threaten the digital networks and information systems that make life, work, and progress possible are many. The threats grow and mutate constantly. When we view them as crime, they represent the greatest breakthrough crime has ever seen – they can be perpetrated remotely and invisibly. When we view cybersecurity threats as warfare, they represent the most rapidly escalating arms race the world has ever seen. Achieving the best computer security is among the highest priorities for responsible enterprises and operations of every kind, because cyber-attacks have been called "The Perfect Weapon."

Intentional, pernicious attacks are only part of the threat that the best computer security must neutralize. Historic events and research studies demonstrate decisively that casual contamination from associates within an organization is an even more broad-based source of viruses, malware, and any form of corruption that's carried in the cloud. Whenever an associate plugs in her mobile device, or syncs his contacts with his computer at work, they open the workplace digital network to anything their mobile device has picked up from the Web.

Even seemingly obvious breaches, such as using a found flash drive at work, are thoughtlessly incurred. No amount of training or degree of indoctrination seems sufficient to prevent this, as research studies among secure, professional defense agencies in the U.S. and abroad have shown. How can we achieve the best computer security in an environment such as this?

A Vital Step Toward the Best Computer Security

One cybersecurity answer that is strangely overlooked is to secure the physical points of access to your data networks and information systems. The visible, physical openings are wide open in the vast majority of cases. USB ports and cable connectors are open to "improvisation" in most systems, and this is an invitation to attacks, contaminations, and disruptions of every kind.

With experience and perspective that extends through all the evolutions of computer access, the geometric growth of getting computing power in the hands of most everyone, The Connectivity Center made it its mission to provide the best computer security products that protect the ports and connectors that guard the physical points of entry that turn computers into data networks and information systems. Its Smart Keeper collection of computer and laptop security devices. They protect the vital data network connections that empower your information systems and still permit the controlled access that moves your enterprise forward day after day.

Its Link Lock connectors, the Link Lock Hub, and a variety of locking 4K high-speed cables secure ubiquitous USB ports and network connections and also lock your devices so that they cannot be removed without authorized access. For unlocking them, we offer two kinds of keys, the Enterprise and Professional series of the Smart Keeper USB Port Lock Key.
