Multifactor Security

The keyboard integrates a 125KHz / 13.56Mhz badge reader for fast tap in, tap out for multilayered security.  The integrated rf IDEAS Wave ID® Plus proximity card reader reads four credential types instead of two, an enhancement over our legacy -16 product line.  Credential types can be configured in the specific priority order you choose.  The contactless reader is compatible with Imprivata® OneSign and other leading healthcare SSOs.

The KSI-1700R SX HCB-21 is one factor in DEA-mandated two-factor authentication required for electronic prescribing.  Compatibility with Imprivata® Proximity Aware offers convenient, proximity-based logoff security.

San-a-Key® Infection Control

KSI’s patented LinkSmart® cleaning button temporarily disables keys for easy disinfection using EPA-approved germicidal wipes.  San-a-Key® client software provides an onscreen, animated cleaning guide, cleaning push reminders, and user-defined, scheduled cleaning.  San-a-Key® enterprise version generates analytics that allow administrators to know when, where, and by whom KSI keyboards are cleaned on an enterprise-wide basis.
