KEY TO SECURITY
Want to lock up your network? Aladdin Knowledge Systems' eToken pro is the size of a house key and usually carried on a key chain. Workers simply plug it into a PC's universal serial bus port to get into the network. (Don't lose it, it's a key.) Prices start at $37 per token and $449 for the software. (www.ealaddin.com)
