pcProx® Mat


The pressure sensitive pcProx Mat eliminates the security risks and privacy concerns associated by automatically securing a workstation based on user presence. The mat is designed to be positioned in front of workstations or kiosks, where a user would normally sit or stand. Using pressure sensitive technology, the pcProx Mat is able to automatically detect user presence and enable both logon and logoff capabilities. Upon a user’s arrival, the pcProx Mat can be configured to automatically open a logon window to the workstation. Once the user walks away, the mat will then automatically lock the workstation until the next user. By automating the logon/logoff process, the pcProx Mat easily enforces company security policies while providing a cost and energy saving solution.

Through Keyboard Interface Technology (KIT) the pcProx Mat sends commands via the USB interface directly to the computer. KIT essentially turns the mat into a pre-programmed USB keyboard, making for simple user interaction. For example, under Windows XP®, the pcProx Mat can send the “CTL - ALT - DEL” sequence when the user approaches a workstation to ready the computer for password entry. When the user steps off the mat, it sends the “Windows Key + L” key sequence, thus locking the system.

Automatic Workstation Lock
Timeouts and relying on users to manually log off are ineffective and create security issues. Strengthen security by eliminating manual user entry.

Simplify Logon
Can be programmed to prepare the workstation when the user returns. Simply step on the pcProx Mat and it will initiate the logon sequence.

Meets Company Computer Policies
Automating work station security and eliminating manual user log-off capabilities removes security risks associated with unattended computers.
