Portal Locks puts portals on lock down

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – An Albuquerque inventor launched his new cybersecurity firm when he filed for patents recently. Pete Berry’s startup, Portal Locks, locks down every port on a computer, from serial to USB to HDMI in order to prevent an unauthorized boot of a computer or to keep a virus from being introduced manually.

Berry says most don’t know their computer can be accessed via port without a password. Portal Locks locks down the portal and still lets the owner use it. The Portal Lock appears to be a thumb drive but has internal fangs that lock inside the computer’s port. It is accessed and easily removed with an unlocking wand but can’t be easily removed without it.

The Portal Lock design is patent pending.
