Frequently Asked Questions

The Excrypt Touch remote management tablet combines the convenience of a tablet with Futurex’s world-renowned data security technology to create a truly revolutionary solution for remote device configuration and management. With the Excrypt Touch, previously complicated and lengthy procedures requiring in-person data center visits are reduced to simple gesture-based activities conducted from any internet-connected remote location, with even greater protection against security threats. The device’s extensive array of capabilities are matched only by its ability to serve as a single point of configuration for geographically-dispersed systems.

The Excrypt Touch is unique in that it’s a portable tablet that incorporates a FIPS 140-2 Level 3 compliant HSM — the only one of its kind on the market. This allows users to conduct remote device management procedures with comfort and convenience. As a handheld device, it can be used without a monitor, mouse, or keyboard, and can be passed between key officers without being confined to a rack.

Ease of Use
