  • 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.
