CARMEL, Ind. — Key Systems, a manufacturer of electronic asset control devices and high security management software to provide real-time event reporting, has joined Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies’ (IR) aptiQ Alliance program.
The partnership allows customers to use one credential to gain access to and track medical devices, electronic lockers, weapons, computer devices, mobile phones, tools, equipment and motor fleets.
“Asset tracking is becoming a larger component of an overall access control and security program,” says Diane Kehlenbeck, director of technology alliances, IR. “Whether it’s a sheriff’s department assuring that weapons don’t fall into the wrong hands, or hospitals meeting privacy requirements, organizations need to track and control their assets in a secure manner. As part of the aptiQ Alliance, Key Systems is providing enhanced security options for their customers.”
aptiQ smart credentials increase the security of information kept on a card, placed on a product or stored in the facility. The encrypted security of aptiQ credentials ensures they are more difficult to counterfeit, according to IR.
“With this alliance, we look forward to providing our customers with even more options to control and manage enterprise critical assets,” says Key Systems CEO George Eckerdt. “Providing the aptiQ credential is based on our clear vision of a secure future and a willingness to invest in technology and innovation. The scope and caliber of our product line is the result of our commitment to excellence.”
