A KSI keyboard integrates no less than four protective, mix-and-match options into one device, routed through a single USB: fingerprint biometrics, contactless RFID card reader technology, sonar walk-away presence detection, and a software-driven keyboard cleaning system that controls infection at the clinical desktop. Further, with zero and thin client ports at a premium, KSI accommodates employers with single port convenience, government compliance, and seamless integration with leading Single Sign-On (SSO) security software – all in one compact device. As more and more hospitals and pharmacies adhere to standards that govern the dispensation of drugs in an effort to curb abuse, KSI’s ePrescribe-ready products with integrated security features offer the ultimate end user accountability available to administrators today – multi-factor authentication.
The award-winning LinkSmart® keyboard cleaning button with San-a-Key® software is the company’s answer to controlling infection at hospital desktops and mobile carts. A press of the patented button disables keys for quick disinfection, aiding in the prevention of hospital-acquired infections and ultimately helping to save patient lives. San-a-Key® prompts, guides, and documents end user cleaning on an enterprise-wide basis, helping to identify infection-related trends and where lack of keyboard cleaning has occurred.
If four functions in one device weren’t enough, the company now includes passive Bluetooth as an option in its keyboards and pods, enabling end user compatibility with Imprivata® Confirm ID that authenticates via mobile device and reduces the need to enter passwords throughout the day.
At the core of KSI technology is the keyboard itself. Efficiencies presented by mix-and-match component options do little for a keyboard offering an abysmal typing experience. The company has taken great pains to design ergonomically-correct keyboards that provide a natural tactile feel – with easy-press, low-profile keys to accelerate data entry and increase workflow.
Now in its 40th year – a journey that began with manufacture of the first keycaps to Apple, Hewlett Packard, Atari, and other Silicon Valley giants – KSI continues to exceed expectations by listening to the needs of customers, providing memorable service to end users around the world, and working with its many technology partners to bring state-of-the-art security products to market.
According to Ms. VanKirk, “With so much at stake – money, time, consumer privacy, organizational reputation – this is no time for any entity to remain complacent about desktop security.” This is particularly true when Key Source International stands at the ready to engage every IT professional seeking a safeguarded network, reduction of internal threats, and improved user experience.
