Organisations required to distribute physical keys to a wide range of individuals present the highest risk.
High security keys can now be copied quickly, cheaply and without trace using domestic 3D printers.
Photograph or scan a high security key.
Print a working key duplicate at home!
It is straightforward and already happening today.
The exposure is amplified for those organisations required to distribute keys to a wide range of staff and contractors requiring access to the assets.
Protecting enterprises from employees (current and former), business partners, contractors, and even customers is a top security priority. It goes without saying that while Internet-based attacks are more commonly reported, insiders actually cause the vast majority of security incidents and can do the most damage. The common key has now one of the top places in terms of heightened risk.
The Stealth Keys look and function like traditional mechanical keys, but unlike common keys, their unique design offers superior levels of protection against unauthorized duplication. The code is hidden under narrow ledges to avoid duplication.
