Automated key control cabinets are common in many businesses. They can operate 24/7 and remove manual, costly and time-consuming processes.
However key cabinets that secure mechanical keys provide limited security after a key has been issued. These keys might be lost, duplicated, stolen or misused. The ValidiKey CKV-V20 offers a different concept by reducing key numbers. When keys are secured in the cabinet they are inactive, reducing any potential security threat. The ValidiKey provides a ‘shared’ key facility, so a key can be used by lots of people in a day. When a key is issued its permissions are tailored to the person carrying the key. The system administrator therefore only needs to consider how many people need a key at the same time, rather than issuing keys to every person that occasionally needs one.
