Security doesn't have to break the Bank After demonstrating its qualities to delegates from some of the UK’s top financial facilities at a recent security seminar, ASSA, part of ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions, presents its innovative CLIQ™ range. Providing simple and intelligent electromechanical locking systems without the associated cost and complexity, delegates of the event, held at the Canadian Embassy in London, saw that CLIQ™ could aid the efforts to improve security in a banking sector, despite restrictive budgets. Ideal for use in retail banks, as well as their headquarters or corporate office spaces, the range consists of electronic cylinders, intelligent user keys with CLIQ™ Remote solution – an accessible key control system. CLIQ™ Remote is easy to install with no need for complicated wiring and in most cases, there is no need to replace existing door hardware, which could prove costly. This causes minimal disruption to day-to-day operations, which is crucial, as customer satisfaction targets combined with the 24/7 nature of the financial industry means that any drop in service – however slight – is not tolerated. CLIQ™ Remote also centralises bank security systems, through allowing administrators to grant access or block lost or stolen keys through its embedded chip memory and processor that creates its electronic identity. Managing multiple locations from one remote site enables a coherent and immediate response to incidences, allowing for support services to launch coordinated incident response. In addition, this allows banks to share security information across different sites, which is an important reporting function in the prevention of security threats; a crucial step in protecting an industry that can find itself a prime target of organised crime. Nojmol Islam, Product Manager for ASSA, said: “In recent years the finance sector has been under increasing pressure to improve operational efficiencies, which can prove tough given restrictive budgets. “The fact that CLIQ™ products can be quickly installed, helps to ensure that the staff at banks will be able to continue working without disruption. The CLIQ™ Remote is the latest addition to the range, which is able to reduce administrative requirements, making it a highly cost effective product and saving time within financial organisations.” For further information on the full range of CLIQ™ products from ASSA, please visit www.assa.co.uk.
