No two businesses are the same, and there is no single security solution that will work for everyone. This is why we at Kensington offer multiple locking solutions to fit the needs of your IT operations, whether you are the IT manager of a large organization managing multiple hardware assets across multiple locations or a one-person operation just beginning to grow your business.
Master Keyed and Supervisor Keyed Options
Master Keyed and Supervisor Keyed options minimize the number of keys required to secure devices in mixed-technology environments. With a single key, an IT specialist can open or close multiple locks, so there are fewer keys to track and keep secure.
Let’s say you are the IT manager for a financial service office with multiple agents who sometimes work on site, but often work at home or take their Surface Pro with them to meet with clients. With Master-keyed locks, each agent can have a key that works with only their cable lock, and you can have a key that opens every cable lock. This helps you keep your clients’ private information secure, while still being able to provide them with the convenient customized service they require.
But what if you manage devices for a medical office and need the maximum protection for both private health and financial information? Then you can count on Supervisor Keyed locks, where each device can only be opened with a single key.
Then again, you may manage the assets in a college classroom where you need the instructor and their lab assistants to be able to use a single key to unlock a device for every student in each section, so they can be checked in and out quickly and efficiently. But you certainly don’t want to lug around that many keys or have that many individual keys floating around to keep track of! With a Liked key solution, each trusted user can open every lock with a single key.
If you happen to find yourself in a situation where a crucial key is locked in the desk of someone unreachable—say, on their sabbatical--Kensington’s Register and Retrieve program provides free and secure cloud-based key replacement.
You can rest assured that you can keep your Surface Pro safe and locked when you want it to be, and unlocked and portable when you need it to be by investing in a Kensington Keyed Cable Lock for Surface Pro.
