iKey 1000 USB Security Token

Cost-Effective and Easy to Use

iKey 1000

Knowing that passwords alone are inadequate for data protection, SafeNet designed the iKey™ 1000 USB token specifically as a portable and secure authentication token addressing the password replacement needs of both users and system administrators.

  • For Users: The SafeNet iKey 1000 USB token is convenient and easy-to-use; simply plug it into an open USB port and enter the iKey’s PIN.

  • For System Admins: The SafeNet iKey 1000 USB Token is a powerful authentication device incorporating random challenges and real-time calculated responses, while shielding the user from the underlying process.

The SafeNet iKey 1000 USB Token is a powerful, portable two-factor authentication device ideally suited for e-mail security, file encryption, Windows 2000/XP/2003 logon security, and iKey partner solutions. Additionally, included are client middleware software and drivers that allow the iKey to be used on a large range of workstation models.
