What is GateKeeper Proximity?

GateKeeper Enterprise by Untethered Labs is automated password management, authentication, and auditing. It is designed so that IT admins can eliminate password and authentication problems with hands-free computer and website access through proximity-based 2FA. Instead of authenticating only once to log in to a computer and website, GateKeeper Enterprise enforces continuous authentication to ensure that the logged in user is still there. When the user leaves, the computer detects the user is no longer present and locks, rendering access to the computer and websites inaccessible.

This system of hybrid convenience and security provides IT admins with the ability to enforce passwords policies such as minimum character amount, complexity, etc. Compliance mandates including HIPAA, CJIS, DFARS, NIST, GDPR, and more require more technical safeguards pertaining to computer access control, permissions, and security. Rather than making employees more responsible for even more passwords, access control policies, and additional authentication processes, GateKeeper Enterprise automates it all.

Installation and setup of Gatekeeper have been described as quick and trouble-free, allowing users to start benefiting from its features right away. The customer service provided by Gatekeeper has also received high praise from users for their patience and knowledge. Another key use case of Gatekeeper is its ability to simplify login and enhance security for medical practices, eliminating potential compliance failures. By automatically locking computers when users leave and unlocking them upon their return, Gatekeeper ensures personal machines are secure while providing ease of access.

Users have had a flawless experience with Gatekeeper, praising its reliability and support. The system's dual-factor authentication, combined with proximity authentication and a PIN, has been successful in environments where multifactor authentication can be challenging.

We use GateKeeper for ourselves, and for our customers to allow faster login to PCs as well as password storage, without having to type in your password every time you sit down at your desk. The produce allows us to save time each day from typing the same passwords over and over, while also providing security and peace of mind.
  • Password storage
  • Proximity login to pc
  • Reporting of login / logout
  • Battery Life
  • Signal to pc
The best uses that we have found for GateKeeper have been for medical offices. We have a customer that uses mobile workstations when doing patient workups, and this has enabled them to step away from the station, evaluate the patient, and then go back to their mobile workstation without having to log in via password since they were within a set range the PC didn't lock. If they had walked more than 5 ft from their workstation, it would lock by Gatekeeper Proximity so the private data on the PC would not be at risk.
  • Proximity login / logout
  • User time tracking
  • Password storage so you can log in to websites with a saved password IF you have your gatekeeper key with you.
  • Although the number seems small at first, minutes saved per day not having to log in / having proximity unlock add up over time. Each user's gatekeeper pays for itself over the year just by shaving a few minutes of time off logins each day.
  • Training time with end users generally takes 15 minutes or less.

We are a rural critical access hospital with limited resources. We needed a way to have a secure two-factor login. We also wanted to have virtual desktops that would follow our medical staff from room to room. We looked at several vendors, but the cost was way out of our budget. We then discovered Untethered Labs Gatekeeper. It was in our budget and it has accomplished everything we were looking for. The customer service and engineering people have helped us design exactly what we need. They are always available and go out of their way to make sure all of your questions and issues are taken care of. I honestly have never worked with a more professional group of people at any other tech company.

  • Tracking logins
  • Time savings
  • Improved security
  • User setup. This has improved over the last year.
