Abloy UK Showcasing Cliq Remote at Counter Terror Expo

Abloy UK is showcasing its Cliq Remote electro-mechanical security platform at Counter Terror Expo 2013, the largest international event to mitigate threats, protect against terrorist attacks and understand current modern day risks in a secure environment.

Taking place at London’s Olympia centre, Counter Terror Expo is a two-day event that starts on 24th April, with delegates from around the world coming together to debate the issues and new technologies that affect defence against terrorism.

Having won “Access Control Product of the Year” at the 2012 CTSS Awards, visitors will be able to get an interactive demonstration of how the Cliq Remote system works on stand K70. This event is ideal for Abloy UK to showcase this system and to highlight the benefits of it specifically in terms of securing transport links and utilities, both of which are common targets for terrorist activity.

Cliq Remote uses web-based software allowing utilities and national infrastructure providers and their contractors to have keys remotely authorised for use in specific operational areas within the existing masterkey system for a pre-determined period of time.  This ensures the highest level of key control incorporating maximum flexibility to guarantee access in the event of an emergency to nominated key holders.

On top of this it provides comprehensive audit trails and the ability to remove lost or stolen keys from the system, thereby providing tight key management at all times.

In terms of transport, Cliq Remote is also ideal for securing railways, particularly when securing external gates and inspection towers.  Cylinders can also be used in the underground vent shafts, power and control rooms.
Jon Burke, Marketing Manager for Abloy UK, said: “Transport links and utilities are targets for terrorists as they look to cause the maximum disruption.  The first step in securing any multi-site estate is to ensure that access is limited only to those with authorisation.

“We have developed the Cliq Remote system specifically to deal this problem, combining the physical benefits of mechanical locking with electronic technology that can control authorisation from a central location.”
