XyLoc protects workstations at the most critical point – after an authorized user logs on, and then steps away from the machine.
XyLoc consists of a radio transceiver ‘Lock’ that plugs into the protected computer via USB, a wireless radio transceiver ‘Key’ (badge) worn by the user, and client/server software components. XyLoc provides full-time access control by assessing a user’s proximity and automatically locking the computer screen and keyboard when the user leaves the workstation. XyLoc knows when users are approaching and leaving a protected computer, and includes intelligence to handle busy multi-user environments.
XyLoc is highly configurable at user, workstation, and group levels. It can allow completely ‘hands-free’ unlocking of a PC when a user returns within a configured grace period, and also supports a variety of two-factor authentication schemes. XyLoc simultaneously improves workstation security, compliance with security procedures, and end-user productivity.
