ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions launches new access management solution to support digital transformation in critical infrastructure

CIPE Manager is tailored to give a comprehensive situational overview and increase operational efficiency in critical infrastructure access management.

JOENSUU, Finland, March 16, 2021ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions today announced the launch of CIPE Manager, a new access management solution for the demanding requirements of critical infrastructure protection.

CIPE Manager allows organizations to manage all their keys, locks and access rights on the go with a user-friendly, cloud-based management system. CIPE Manager connects with every locking solution in the Digital portfolio for Critical Infrastructure Protection by ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions. These currently include the keyless ABLOY® BEAT, the electromechanical PROTEC2 CLIQTM, as well as the high-security mechanical ABLOY master key systems.

“The digitalization in access management continues to move businesses towards more cloud-based applications. A survey conducted by IFSEC Global and ASSA ABLOY in October 2020 indicated that while 65% are still using localised, internal servers to manage their systems, 35% of end-users have already moved to cloud-based software.[1] This development is also seen with wireless access control going beyond the buildings  and is reflected in our customers’ needs for secure and comprehensive cloud-based management solutions for infrastructure and asset protection,” said Mervi Hiltunen, Business Development and Solutions Director, ABLOY Critical Infrastructure.

One application to manage keyless, electromechanical and mechanical locking

CIPE Manager is designed for day-to-day operational use by security, operations and facility management who control and manage access rights to their organizations’ critical infrastructure sites and facilities. Typical sectors include energy, water, telecom, transportation, oil and gas as well as mining.

CIPE Manager includes a highly visual map-based user interface that provides a clear overview on the variety of locking points. With CIPE Manager the user can connect the organization’s all mechanical, electromechanical and keyless locking solutions in ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions’ digital portfolio for critical infrastructure into the same system. This allows extensive situational awareness and efficient access and key management.

The user interface is browser-based, allowing the management of keys, locks, and access rights remotely and on the go with most mobile devices or desktop computers.

The administrator using CIPE Manager can grant and revoke access permissions to persons according to their roles, e.g. job task or organization. Besides easy access management, the solution offers extended reporting and tracking features with full audit trail data.

“CIPE Manager provides digital convenience, control and security that simplifies managing daily processes, adding operational efficiency and complete situational awareness. With this new addition to our digital portfolio, we now offer complete protection for our customers’ entire critical infrastructure requiring mechanical, electromechanical and keyless access solutions. I’m excited to see the possibilities CIPE Manager has for extending our capability to become the preferred infrastructure access management provider for our customers”, said Mervi Hiltunen.

Delivered as an always up-to-date SaaS solution

CIPE Manager is licensed and delivered to customers as a SaaS (Software as a service) solution, continuously updated and supported by ASSA ABLOY and ABLOY Critical Infrastructure teams.

CIPE Manager is available with comprehensive customer support in selected markets from regional ABLOY Critical Infrastructure sales units starting today.
