With Link Lock from the Professional line, you can manage and control the use of any USB device. An alternative to the professional USB lock is the USB Cable Lock from the Essentials range to protect USB devices and cables. This technology ensures that only approved USB devices are used by restricting the removal of attached USB devices (such as keyboards and mice) from USB ports. Removing connected USB devices is only possible using the special Professional Port Lock Key, which is also compatible with other SmartKeeper products.


By comparison, USB Cable Lock from the Essential range can only be removed with the Basic Port Lock Key. Key benefits of Link Lock and USB Cable Lock include targeted management of USB port usage by external vendors, visitors, or employees. Both locks are innovative physical products for IT security and for effective management of USB port protection.
