ASSA ABLOY have helped meet the requirements of Creval, a regional bank in Italy, when it sought an alternative to a mechanical master-key system.
With retail banking combining a demand for high security with complex workflows, staff need efficient access. Facility managers need the flexibility to design access permissions around individual needs, so not everyone can access every area whenever they choose. Also, nobody wants to carry or track large numbers of keys.
Creval needed new access control devices to become a crucial part of a security system for assets and people with the highest level of protection. It wanted locks to offer a durable, secure and flexible alternative to standard mechanical security.
What it found was an easy, electronic way to administer a powerful, user-friendly system, based on battery-powered physical keys and secure, advanced microelectronics.
Creval chose eCLIQ key-based wireless access control; bank doors throughout the Lombardy region are guarded by over 30 durable eCLIQ cylinders, putting Creval managers in complete control of entrance security.
eCLIQ is a scalable electronic extension of the CLIQ® access control system, deployed in critical infrastructure sites across the continent.
Cylinders are fully electronic, protected against manipulation and with 128-bit AES encryption built into both lock and key microelectronics. Staff possess a single, battery-powered eCLIQ key, programmed with only the right preauthorised access permissions.
Creval’s security manager can now grant access based on scheduled times and specific doors, and right down to the level of the individual site user. It is also simple to set time-limited access rights for a user key, increasing security if a key is lost. Audit trails and event logs are collected to the same, fine-grained degree.
Key management is easy, with software operated from a local PC or securely on the web via a standard browser. Should the unlikely happen and a key is misplaced, Creval administrators simply delete its validity from the system.
Claudio Brisia, Logical Security Manager at Creval headquarters in Sondrio, said it was ‘satisfied with the results’.
