Protecting the world’s critical infrastructure is a complex mission. Managing security for these facilities involves addressing a broad range of possible threats and vulnerabilities, from the intentional contamination of water supplies to the theft of equipment vital to electricity distribution. Vandalism, theft or deliberate sabotage — by terrorists or other criminals — are ever-present threats. The consequences of any security breach can be dire, both for the entities involved and for everyone who depends on the continuing operation of critical infrastructure — which is most of us.
As a tool to address the complex security scenarios facing critical infrastructure, locks are indispensable. In critical infrastructure environments, locks are often required to be resistant to extreme temperatures, dust and toxic substances, fire and explosions. Locks must also perform in environments that are even more challenging, including rain and manipulation. Critical infrastructure facilities can benefit from a high-security locking system that combines electronic and mechanical security; in effect, providing an intelligent combination of both.
The CLIQ® locking system from ASSA ABLOY is already a trusted solution in Europe, and energy providers in Helsinki, Germany, the UK and Switzerland have implemented this technology to protect their facilities.
In this white paper, learn about how CLIQ® can simplify security and workflow for critical infrastructure entities, and some examples of how existing customers are using the technology.
