ASSA ABLOY Access Control, a UK division of ASSA ABLOY, the global leader in door opening solutions is helping companies ensure that their sensitive data is protected against unauthorised access with the Aperio® KS100 Server Cabinet Lock.

Data protection against unauthorised access

The KS100 allows server cabinet doors and racks to be integrated with real–time access control system, to control exactly who can access the servers, and when.

In addition, Smartcard-operated Aperio® access control can generate audit trails, making the KS100 invaluable for incident investigation.

Damian Marsh, Managing Director at ASSA ABLOY Access Control, said: “With the data centre market growing fast, many companies are sharing a data centre location, often even the same rack; consequently, to ensure compliance and avoid costly breaches, managing physical access to servers is critical.”

KS100 server cabinet lock features

“KS100 secures data against costly accidental downtime, unauthorised access and physical security breaches. It also allows access control to be affordably added to almost any opening in your data centre, even if the facility is shared. The KS100 significantly upgrades data centre security, providing businesses and their customers with the highest levels of assurance.”

Installation is quick and easy, with power coming via a Power over Ethernet (PoE) connection. Once installed, KS100 locks integrate with an electronic access control system and communicate wirelessly through an Aperio® Communication Hub. With online integration, when a smartcard credential is presented to the lock, access decisions are immediately communicated from the system through the hub and wirelessly back to the lock.

Compatible with existing smartcards

The KS100 is compatible with existing smartcards using all standard RFID technologies, including iCLASS® from HID, Seos™, MIFARE® and DESFire.

With Aperio®, lost cabinet keys no longer compromise server security; they are simply de-authorised and a valid replacement can be quickly re-issued. The status of any individual lock can be ascertained with the click of a mouse.

CLIQ® access control solution from ASSA ABLOY helps secure museums, shopping and indoor leisure sites

Places of leisure, where one spends one’s downtime, are public by design. Unlike a bank vault or power plant, they actively invite visitors. One can’t just lock them down and hope no one turns up. Equally, to ensure user and property safety, access must not be a free for all. Managing risk - separating authorised from unauthorised people and locations - is part of every site manager’s daily routine. Intelligent locking makes this workload a whole lot easier.
