ProteMac has announced LogonKey, software that presents security for computer data packed into USB dongle. This software reduces log-on procedure to inserting USB flash drive.
According to the folks at ProteMac, LogonKey relieves users from entering anything from the keyboard; it is the serial number of your USB flash device that will be necessary for user identification. The software lets users choose between computer access via USB dongle or usual password that meets their specific security demands.
Device removal blocks access to computer system from the outside, enabling users to specify the activity after logging out: screensaver, logout, sleep or shutdown. LogonKey delivers the ability to get personal access code wrapped up into portable device.
LogOnKey requires Mac OS X 10.5 or higher. It costs US$49.95 for a single user license and may be downloaded at the ProteMac web site (http://www.protemac.com/).
