CLIQ® Connect makes access management mobile

eCLIQ master key system from ASSA ABLOY now even more user-friendly with the new app

Large number of sites, lots of rooms and many colleagues who travel for their work – that is everyday life in many authorities and companies. At the same time, data and technology must be reliably protected from unauthorised access. Without electronic access authorisation management, this is practically impossible. But even then, making any change is a laborious process, as it can usually only be carried out at the main site. With CLIQ® Connect, ASSA ABLOY Sicherheitstechnik GmbH is making the management of the eCLIQ electronic master key system mobile: with the new app, access authorisations and revalidations can be called up easily even while on the move.

A smartphone with the CLIQ® Connect app and a     CLIQ® Connect key – that’s all you need to access any required workstation independently and at any time while on the move. All data of the CLIQ® Web-Manager management software can be optionally saved in a cloud. If a smartphone and key are connected via Bluetooth, the new app can call up updated or time-restricted access authorisations directly from the server via the internet and load them on to the key. Without making a long trip to a company site. To guarantee protection from hacker attacks, the data is encrypted during transmission. Parallel to the authorization allocations via the app, stationary programming devices can still be used as before.

Location-independent master key system management

The server-based solution via the Web-Manager also offers advantages for administrators: they can manage the entire eCLIQ master key system securely via the internet from any location. The clearly structured Web-Manager is optimized for web browsers. Time-restricted access authorisations can be issued at short notice or event logs viewed in the software, for example. Where necessary, an event log can be created for every CLIQ® Connect key in the master key system or loaded automatically onto the server as soon as the access authorisations are updated on the key.

Access control in realtime

CLIQ® Connect delivers access control in realtime. “We developed CLIQ® to help our customers to make their complex work processes more efficient”, says Alexander Kroll, product manager CLIQ® at ASSA ABLOY Sicherheitstechnik GmbH. “CLIQ® Connect makes it even easier to update time-restricted or site-specific access authorisations for external workers. The new app reduces the time required for managing access authorisations and saves money, which wouldotherwise be spent on programming devices and systems for key management.”

The flexible system with mobile master key system management not only speeds up the work processes, but also improves protection from burglary, data theft or industrial espionage: “CLIQ® Connect significantly improves security on site, as access authorisations with an extremely short validity are much easier to manage. They reduce the likelihood of a lost key becoming even more of a security risk”, states Kroll.

“For companies with workers deployed at various different sites, CLIQ® master key systems and the new CLIQ® Connect app will quickly become an indispensable tool”, he adds. “Our new solution gives security managers full control – at all times.”
