ABLOY takes aim with new Critical Infrastructure Security products for ISC West

Irving, TX – March 20, 2019 – With a keen focus on developing high security solutions for telecom, utilities, power generation, rail and other critical infrastructure sectors, ABLOY Security (booth 8061) will demonstrate two high impact products at ISC West, April 10-12 at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas.

ABLOY will introduce the ABLOY PROTEC2 CLIQTM Connect, a revolutionary new online access control application that allows security managers to control the security permissions of a mobile workforce from their smartphones. In addition, booth visitors will have the opportunity to see and learn why the ABLOY® PROTEC2 Super Weather Proof (SWP) padlock is regarded as the world’s toughest electromechanical locking solution.

“For large utilities with thousands of employees, consultants and contractors accessing remote sites every day, lost or stolen keys no longer pose a threat,” said Jerry Burhans, the U.S. Managing Director for Abloy Security. “Having intelligent key systems matched to the most weatherproof padlock in the market helps these organizations comply with new physical security standards and federal mandates."

ABLOY PROTEC2 CLIQ combines the best characteristics of mechanical and electronic locks. The remote management system allows user rights to be controlled via the internet, and lost keys can be deactivated without the need for mechanical rekeying. Both keys and locks provide an audit trail, and the critical components are protected to ensure reliable operation in extreme conditions.

Facility managers can update, amend, revoke or renew access rights remotely from the CLIQ Web Manager software and the latest Bluetooth technology paired with a mobile phone. Mobile workers then simply need to open their CLIQ Connect app for the updated access permissions to be instantly transferred to their programmable CLIQ key via Bluetooth.

“CLIQ Connect gives the customer a robust product and a user-friendly security management experience,” confirmed Burhans. “It also is intended for use in a wide range of industries. Our SWP padlock is simply the best product in the market. Once you see it, you’ll understand why it lives up to the hype.”

The Abloy Super Weather Proof padlock is a locking solution that provides extremely effective protection against forcing, picking and vandalism. Case hardened boron steel shackles offer exceptional durability and have successfully passed demanding corrosion tests. The SWP is built to withstand the harshest environmental conditions Mother Nature has to offer. Battle tested to handle extreme heat and cold, this high quality locking system also repels all moisture including salt water, dirt, dust and grime.

That’s because it was designed with a components system that is extremely well protected to ensure operation despite the conditions. It also makes SWP the perfect locking solution for energy and telecom networks, the mining industry and water utilities.
