Key Activity Audit Report Adds to Security of Lock Management System

Videx Inc. : 05 March, 2010  (New Product)
CyberKey key management cabinets provide three levels of key security with cabinet access control, key programming to individual requirements and key activity audit report
Key Activity Audit Report Adds to Security of Lock Management System
Videx announces two smart CyberKey cabinets that offer a whole new level of accountability and key control. Built with rugged metal housings, they provide three layers of key security: secure access to the key cabinet, secure access to individually programmed keys, and an audit report of each employee's key activity throughout a facility.

CyberKeys that are stored in the cabinets contain no permissions to open locks. When an employee needs a key, their RFID card or correct PIN must be entered to open the cabinet and entered again to request a key to be programmed and released. The key that is released contains the access permissions they need to do their job: what locks they may open, and when they may open them. As an additional layer of security, any CyberKey that has been docked in a cabinet cannot be forcibly removed without destroying the key.

At the end of the day, when the employee returns their electronic key to the cabinet, an audit trail of their entire key and lock activity is downloaded to the software. After the cabinet reports back to the software, the key automatically returns to an un-programmed state. It remains in this un-programmed state until another authorized employee presents the required RFID card or PIN identification.

The economics of the CyberKey cabinets are very attractive. Inexpensive RFID cards are used to access the cabinets and the electronic key. The electronic keys can be shared by any number of employees. This sharing of keys and dispensing them automatically is an efficient, cost-saving way to manage a company s resources while at the same time increasing security. In addition, a ring of mechanical keys can be attached to an electronic key for safekeeping in the cabinets.

CyberKey cabinets communicate with CyberLock access management software and can be installed in any location that has a network connection so a key can be quickly updated with an employee's access schedule. Videx offers two cabinets: CyberKey Vault supports one electronic key, and CyberKey Vault20 supports 20 electronic keys. A single system can manage multiple key cabinets. The CyberKey cabinets are the newest addition to an extended family of CyberLock products.
