We knew we had to do something about key management - it is a utility wide problem - Traka has enabled us to address these issues immediately and to great effect.
Orlando, FL (PRWEB) April 26, 2013
Power and utilities companies across North America can feel safer knowing that Traka USA, a developer of intelligent asset management technology and key management solutions, launched their new web initiative to improve security throughout the energy industry by providing smart alternatives to the risks of conventional key use.
The energy industry is full of companies who rely on the use of conventional keys, putting their organizations in danger because of the lack of key management, as well as the risks that having large amounts of keys present. Traka helps these organizations to manage keys by controlling who has access to them and when.
To provide awareness about solutions to these risks for power and utility providers, Traka launched an online resource, http://www.trakaenergy.com. With intelligent upgrades, site operators can be sure keys are under control and the company’s most valuable assets of any kind are safeguarded at all times with key management systems and a range of access control products.
Traka’s management systems provide companies in the energy industry with ensured access for specified users, monitored key transactions, and integrated software programs that provide a total upgrade over the risks of managing large amounts of keys with conventional systems. In addition to improved safety, incorporating these advanced technology procedures to the security policy also drives efficiency while lowering costs.
Bristol Water, a leader in the utility industry that supplies over a million domestic users, used Traka’s systems to manage all of the critical keys in their 14 raw water reservoirs, 16 treatment works, 164 pumping stations and 139 covered water storage reservoirs. With so many sites and the corresponding risks, the amount of keys and transactions needed to be accounted for, which Traka did by installing 23 cabinets networked to a central management point.
Martin Harvey, Security Manager at Bristol Water, has responsibility for everything from padlocks on perimeter fences to risk assessments and management; including all security contracts. “We knew we had to do something about key management - it is a utility wide problem - Traka has enabled us to address these issues immediately and to great effect.”
The new online energy resource also includes in depth overviews of Traka’s innovative products for key management and access control, which allow companies in the sector to protect assets of any shape and size.
