Nexus GB has been making data rugged, portable and secure for over 25 years. We're the exclusive UK, Ireland and Scandinavian distributor for Datakey Electronics® reprogrammable Keys and Tokens.
At Nexus we are entirely focussed on the Datakey Electronics product line, this allows us to give a high level of service and support to our customers. Because we are used to dealing with Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) from many different industries, we understand that it can often take years for a product to come to market and we work with our customer to support them during this process. Our customers range from companies with a few employees up to multi-national corporations with thousand of employees.
We don't simply sell keys or tokens but offer a range of portable memory products with matching readers as well. That's one of the reasons millions of our devices are being used across the UK and Ireland for data logging, cashless vending, security, access controls and much more.
