Could it be referring to the flexibility of the keys of a piano?
Context is always SO important.
Without context, I would assume it was referring to something that a person (or idea or corporation or... something) does well (a strength) and identifying it as being particularly important (key).
We'd like to hire him. His key strength is that he already has a strong relationship with the customers we are trying to reach.
However, if you are talking about laptop keyboards or piano keys... well... what WAS being talked about?
