This technology suite consists of patented devices (reusable and single-use) that provide methods for blocking access to data ports, as well as tamper evidence when bypassed. Increasingly, computer data ports are becoming a preferred method to covertly extract data or introduce malicious software into a computer system. As a result, the need to secure data ports from unauthorized access is becoming a priority for security personnel and system administrators. These port protectors are an inexpensive solution to address a significant security vulnerability and can be easily installed to provide an additional layer of security over software-based systems.

With port protectors in place, users can deny, deter, and detect unauthorized access to On-Board Diagnostic (OBD) ports in vehicles, HDMI ports, Universal Serial Bus (USB) ports, and D-sub (DB9, DB15, DB25, DB26, and DVI) ports, as well as the removal of USB cables, improving cyber defense and maintaining system integrity.
