The Need for "Actual" Computer Security to Compliment "Virtual" Computer Security

Securing the physical perimeter of computer equipment should be at the top of every organization's computer security plans. Rarely does that happen, though.

The online and programming approaches to computer system security are mainly designed to counterattack, rather than to prevent incursions in the first place.

    HUNTSVILLE, AL, September 20, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Securing the physical perimeter of computer equipment appears at the top of many definitions of computer system security, so it is surprising that "virtual" comes first and "actual" is so often left for last when enterprises take steps to ensure the integrity of data and to prevent unauthorized access.

Think of the urgency applied to computer access control and authentication. Password systems and other online access control were treated as step-one, when Web use became widespread and a critical priority was placed on secure transactions so that e-commerce could progress. Isn't it remarkable, then, that computer system security has placed so little emphasis on protecting the physical access to the ports and connectors that make computers into data networks and information systems?

Beyond Countermeasures

In addition to the paradox of placing only a second priority on the actual, visible, physical computer system security on which we all depend – putting actual security measures after the plethora of virtual protections based on software and programming – consider, too, that most of the online solutions react to incursions, rather than prevent them. Yes, the online and programming approaches to computer system security are mainly designed to counterattack, rather than to prevent incursions in the first place.

Computer System Security You Can See

With experience and perspective that extends through all the evolutions of computer system security, The Connectivity Center's mission is to guard the physical points of entry that turn computers into data networks and information systems. The company protects ports, connectors, and any other aperture through which contamination or sabotage might introduced to threaten the efficiency and continuity of your operations.

An example of the resources you can depend includes its Smart Keeper collection of computer system 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, The Connectivity Center offers two kinds of keys, the Enterprise and Professional series of the Smart Keeper USB Port Lock Key.

The Professional Series provides effective control to reach port locks in confined spaces. Key patterns are strictly controlled, yet you can order duplicate keys to suit your own computer system security authorization structure. As a convenient and efficient option, the Professional Series key offers you an ergonomic, retractable housing with anti-static rubber grip, LED light for low visibility work areas, and dual-retractors – main and peripheral – for access to any angle of installation.

Securing the open front door of cybersecurity – the actual points of access – is what The Connectivity Center does. Here you'll find a vast, expertly curated collection of devices to complete that complex perimeter of computer system security, protect the physical connections your system and provide for the secure retention of the devices themselves.
