ASSA ABLOY wins GIT Security Award 2019 with CLIQ Connect

We could hardly get off to a better start: On the first day of Security Essen 2018, the leading trade fair for security, ASSA ABLOY won the GIT Security Award 2019 for CLIQ® Connect. A specialist jury and readers of the Wiley print and online publications named the EAC system the winner in the category access, intrusion and perimeter protection.

On the afternoon of 25.09.2018, Andreas Wagener, Managing Director Sales and Marketing Germany at ASSA ABLOY Sicherheitstechnik GmbH, accepted the GIT Security Award 2019: "We are delighted with the prize for CLIQ® Connect. This is great feedback from the jury that the system works in everyday use and is an effective solution for access control. This is a lovely recognition of our work and motivates us to develop more innovative products in the future, which increase access security and simplify the management process."

Back in 2017, ASSA ABLOY impressed the jury with CLIQ® Go and also came first in the category access, intrusion and perimeter protection. While CLIQ® Go is the ideal security system for small companies and private users, CLIQ® Connect was developed mainly for large companies. CLIQ® Connect makes the management of the electronic master key system eCLIQ mobile and thus much easier. An app enables access authorizations to be allocated and blocked while on the move. Authorities and companies that rely on external workers benefit from the location-independent solution. It not only increases security, but also saves time and money when coordinating access.

The international GIT Security Award, GSA for short, is organized every year by the specialist magazine GIT Sicherheit from Wiley media in cooperation with the online platforms PRO-4-PRO.com, GIT-SECURITY.com and GIT-SICHERHEIT.de. An independent specialist jury makes a preselection and selects the finalists for the awards. In the final stage, the readers select three winners in 5 different product categories online: Category A – IT-Security and Safety for Automation, Cyber Security, Category B – Fire and Explosion Protection, Industrial Safety, Category C – Video Security Systems (VSS), Category D – Access Control, Intruder Alarm, Perimeter Protection and Category E – Safety and Security Management, Services and Solutions.
