New product. TOSIBOX® SoftKey deliveries have started December 15, 2017.
TOSIBOX® SoftKey is a computer software that enables a secure connection between your computer and one or more TOSIBOX® Locks, giving you full visibility and control over the network devices connected to the Lock. The SoftKey works without a physical TOSIBOX® Key device. The SoftKey corresponds to a Sub Key that is controlled via a physical Master Key, and therefore it cannot be used to create more keys or Mobile Clients.
TOSIBOX® SoftKey complies with the high security standards set for all TOSIBOX® products. The SoftKey is created according to the same safe procedures as for hardware Keys. The SoftKey is also computer- and user-specific i.e. it cannot be copied over or moved to another device. A Master Key user can always revoke access rights from a SoftKey – just like with all other Sub Keys and Mobile Clients.
