Traka, the intelligent access management systems company, has launched Traka Web, a web-based administration suite that allows businesses to control key management systems from mobile devices. Complimenting Traka’s existing access management solutions, Traka Web will help improve security and protect assets across organisations with simple administration and the ability to grant/restrict access to multiple items quickly and efficiently.
Traka provides organisations such as the Ministry of Justice with secure key cabinets to store Traka iFobs connected to physical keys. To access iFobs, staff identify themselves at the automated cabinets via PIN, biometrics or smartcard. Each iFob contains authorisation information; thereby ensuring keys are used by authorised personnel only and with full integration capability we can ensure they are returned before staff leave site.
The system also improves auditing – with reports showing which staff accessed which keys, when they were taken and when they were returned. Traka Web will enable managers to monitor key usage from their mobile devices, rather than needing to be on-site.
“Despite the boom in electronic door access, in most organisations, access management for keys is a manual process with keys kept in a box and audited using a paper log book,” explains John Kent, president of Traka. “This relies too much on employee diligence, is time consuming for management and simply doesn’t ensure watertight security. Traka Web works with our access management system to help businesses control key usage from anywhere at anytime. Managers can see who has what key and produce auditing reports that can be read on any mobile device - boosting security and efficiency in one sweep.”
Traka Web was available for previews at the ASSA ABLOY stand (4/C40) at IFSEC 2013. Traka also displayed the latest generation of Traka iPad locker and Traka Laptop Locker technology - designed to alleviate the pressure of manually signing out and tracking mobile devices in businesses by offering a system that includes real-time tracking, curfew alerts, historical data and the ability to lock down damaged devices.
