kind of alarm notification does
EtherLock/Security generate? Do you provide
supports a broad range of notification methods.
Physically, EtherLock/Security activates a relay
in response to an event. This physical response
maybe interfaced to a Watcher audible siren (for
distributed physical notification), auto-locking
doors, or a building security alarm panel. In
addition, EtherLock/Security translates the event
into logical notification that may be used for
paging, e-mail and other forms of communication.
When combined with inControl, event notification
is automatically displayed at any inControl
EtherLock/Security package includes one Watcher
relay alarm, and one Blaster alarm.
turn alarms on or off during certain times of the
day? Can I have different alarms if certain
equipment is tampered with?
is configurable to suit your specific needs;
alarms can vary depending on the time of day and
can be set on a machine-by-machine basis.
However, even when the alarms are turned off,
EtherLock/Security still requires an authorized
release to remove any asset.
EtherLock/Security protect laptops?
EtherLock perspective any portable hardware is
identical to desk-top. Portable equipment is set
to be more frequently disconnected and connected
from the network. A PC-Key (physical) or i-listen
utility (logical) allow a portable equipment user
to sign his asset in and out of the network.
solution prevent my SIMMs and other components
from being stolen?
SIMMLock;, a bracket that prevents tampering with
internal components of your computer hardware,
such as SIMM chips, microprocessors and disk
drives, by making a screw on the CPU box
inaccessible. The Ethernet cable passes
through an opening in this bracket. The
only way to tamper with the inside of a networked
PC, is to remove the case screw(s) and disconnect
the ethernet cable from the NIC; EtherLock will
alert you in real-time of any unauthorized
peripherals such as monitors, scanners, and
external drives be protected?
SimmLock brackets can also be affixed to any
peripheral so that EtherLock will alert you of
any attempt to disconnect monitors, external hard
drives, printers, etc.
printers, servers, or other networked hardware
besides PCs be protected? Does this system
work with Apple comuters or workstations?
is platform-independent and is designed to
protect any networked asset such as printers,
scanners, or even manufacturing equipment.
system or asset management software (SMS,
LANDesk, etc.) provide the same security?
software tools were not designed with security
and asset control in mind. Theoretically, a
software-only product can alert you when a
periodic comparison of discovery results reveals
unexpected changes. From a practical
standpoint, the discovery process has too many
contingencies to perform such activity on a
regular basis. For continuous hardware
protection, even when equipment is turned off,
EtherLock is the only solution.
