CyberLock, a powerful access control solution for utilities and electric transmission companies, helps protect cyber assets that are critical under critical infrastructure protection (CIP) reliability standards. The solution, from Videx of Corvallis, Oregon, brings intelligent access control to existing lock hardware simply by replacing each lock’s mechanical cylinder with an electronic cylinder. Management can track contractors and employees that go into sensitive locations, because the electronic locks and keys record openings and exceptions such as unauthorized attempts to gain access. Each CyberKey can be programmed to open selected locks and padlocks on specific days and times. Keys can be set with a beginning and ending date, and the electronic keys cannot be duplicated.
