Key Cabinet and Locker Management
PACOM Unison is a market-leading platform with the ability to link with ASSA Abloy Traka intelligent key management system and lockers solutions to manage and control access to a company’s most important assets. When a conventional key is stolen, mislaid, or accidentally taken home, security is compromised and the organization is suddenly vulnerable. Even if nothing is stolen, and no damage is done, the cost and inconvenience of fitting new locks and the impact on productivity can be significant.
Traka can significantly reduce the cost of losses through accidental damage, theft, personal injury and downtime.
The integration between Unison and ASSA Abloy Traka allows for extensive key management at facilities such as data centers, healthcare facilities, universities, municipalities, governments and other similar applications.
The user presents an access card to a reader to open the key cabinet and access a selected key. All actions and events are logged in Unison and can be accessed at any time. Unison can be configured to activate an alarm if a key is not returned to the cabinet on time. Unison can also be programmed to activate an event once a key is borrowed or is returned late.
Unison’s integration with Traka supports automatic upload of configuration making it efficient to upload data to user tags or update time schedules.
Deister proxSafe Integration
Deister proxSafe is a key and asset management system used to effectively control and monitor valuable assets using high security, electronically controlled cabinets.
Monitoring who, when and where keys and assets are accessed adds confidence and peace of mind with control and immediate response to alerts that can be automatically raised when alarm conditions exist.
Integrating Deister proxSafe with the PACOM Unison system allows Unison operators to respond to alarms, perform actions and monitor the status of the key management system as part of their standard Unison security management solution.
Linking Unison cardholder data and proxSafe key users provide the ability to control access to individual keys using existing cardholder data and the automatic sharing of data between Unison and proxSafe ensures that secure access to critical assets is maintained at all times.
The electronically controlled key cabinets can be efficiently monitored from the convenience of the Unison client and operators can see who has accessed keys and assets at any time. More than 50 different events can be displayed as alarms in real-time, enabling Unison operators to take timely action.
Proper management of cryptographic keys in hardware security modules.
Proper key management is an essential process of data security within any organization handling sensitive information. To avoid risks and efficiently scale operations, an organization should centralize its large intelligent key management system. This will result in good key generation and ensure key integrity within the system.
Lite series key management system is typically developed with certain sectors/industries in mind, and therefore it is advisable to choose a centralized KMS that has a proven track record for supporting the security/regulatory standards of the particular sector that is relevant to the business.
Compliance is non-negotiable. It is equally important for the system to support the complete life-cycle of cryptographic keys. Automating key management further reduces the need for time-consuming, manual key functions.
WHAT IS A GUARD TOUR SYSTEM
Standalone guard tour system provides a means to check and record the time that a guard executes his guard tour by scanning specific checkpoints assigned on the area he patrols. Checkpoints are placed in certain points either on buildings or on other locations of a site or remote area and help the managing staff to identify each different location and each portion of a specific territory. The on-site officers can scan checkpoints, send SOS alerts, track and record events and conduct and send reports to the managing staff or the clients, even in real-time.
