Password protected screensavers and other basic techniques of access control are easily defeated by someone watching as you type your password or cheap key loggers attached to your keyboard. Nowadays you need something tangible, a thumbprint, a retinal scan, something they can’t easily copy or take without your knowing. Sadly these methods can be quite expensive and even themselves become victims of the thieving little punk we’re trying to avoid. So this leaves us needing something we can keep on our person the entire time and hopefully something less than two hundred bucks. Well, Lexington Technology thinks they have what it takes to fill our needs without emptying our pockets. They gave us the opportunity to test out the Standalone and Network versions of their “PCAccess” security access control system.
