While passwords are something very important to consider when creating new accounts, personal passwords can also become quite hard to manage. Basically, the more accounts you have, the more passwords you’ll have to save on a safe document (or piece of paper, if you’re old school) and/or memorize. Not only that, but the more accounts you have, the harder and harder it will get for you to remember all of those passwords, which also means that you’ll have to spend the extra time requesting for password recovery emails from all of those websites and/or services. This is exactly what the GateKeeper Halberd aims to solve.
The GateKeeper Halberd is a wireless proximity security token authenticator that works as a wireless access control system to authenticate users quickly and securely into computers and websites by wirelessly generating proximity-based 2FA tokens. By using this handy little device, you can ultimately eliminate manual logins forever.
Basically, this Wireless Proximity Security Token Authenticator and USB Sensor Set provides you with a quick method of locking and unlocking your computer, which, in the long run, will save you a huge amount of time that would otherwise be spent typing, memorizing, and recovering passwords at any time you would forget your accounts’ credentials.
Not only that, but when used in larger scenarios – like a company’s office for example (meaning for business) – companies could also greatly benefit from using the GateKeeper Halberd, as this Wireless Proximity Security Token Authenticator could provide businesses with reduced help desk calls while also helping employees to never again forgotten a password that they would be using at a regular basis.

Now, without further ado, let’s have a look at the GateKeeper Halberd and check out everything that this wireless proximity security token authenticator has to offer you.
DESIGN & SPECS
Starting with the GateKeeper Halberd’s design, the main unit comes in the format of a wireless proximity security token authenticator key fob. The key fob itself is quite compact, and also extremely lightweight.
Overall, the GateKeeper Halberd key fob features a very solid build, as it integrates a water-resistant and crush-resistant body, which obviously makes the unit extremely durable.
Furthermore, the key fob also comes equipped with a metallic lanyard slot, which can be easily found at the top of the unit.
Thanks to that, users can wear their GateKeeper Halberd around their necks by using the included high-quality and ultra-durable black Lanyard in order to have an easier time using this wireless proximity security token authenticator.
Alternatively, and if you prefer, instead of using your GateKeeper Halberd unit with the included Lanyard, you could also install any standard metallic key ring within the key fob’s lanyard slot.
Both solutions will ultimately make the use of your GateKeeper Halberd much more convenient, because, instead of having to remove it from your pocket each and every time you’re required to use it to authenticate your user login into your computer and/or a website, you can simply grab it from under your neck, aim it at its proprietary USB Bluetooth Proximity Sensor unit, and get quickly authenticated by a wirelessly generated proximity-based 2FA security token.
The included USB Bluetooth Proximity Sensor unit can be quickly installed in any computer.
Lastly, the GateKeeper Halberd was designed for HIPAA, CJIS, and DFARS compliance, which makes this wireless proximity security token authenticator the perfect automatic passwordless solution for bigger use-cases, including industrial environments like factories, medical facilities like hospitals and clinics, and many more similar scenarios.
Now, for those wondering exactly how the GateKeeper Halberd can wirelessly generate its proximity-based 2FA security tokens, that process is done by simply using Bluetooth Smart (BLE) Technology (meaning via Bluetooth 4.0) to communicate with its proprietary USB Bluetooth Proximity Sensor unit.
Then, since each GateKeeper Halberd key fob unit also comes equipped with some proximity sensors, users can also accurately adjust their key fob units’ detection range according to their preferences.
With that said, you can have your GateKeeper Halberd’s proximity detection range adjusted from 10 to 30 feet.
