With the Lindy Port Blockers, you can quickly block open network & USB ports and easily prevent users from connecting cables, devices or inserting foreign objects without permission. System administrators can physically prevent users from connecting USB Sticks, MP3 Players and other USB devices to their computers to copy data, introduce viruses etc. It can also act as a visual cue, showing inactive or disconnected ports.
The Port Blocker is made up of a combined ‘key’ and ‘lock’ assembly which plugs into the port. To use, simply plug the ‘keylock’ into the port and release the latch – the lock remains in place! Plug the key back into the lock to remove. Easy!
The semi-permanent RJ-45 Port Blocker is made up of a molded plastic blocking cap that plugs securely into the RJ-45 port with a special insertion key. The blocker latches into the RJ-45 just as a network cable would and remains in place until removed using the insertion key.
Security Note: This Port Blocker will only act as a a basic physical & visual deterrent to tampering. It will not prevent a determined attacker, intent on gaining physical access to a RJ-45 or USB port.
