SALTO Systems – the specialist in wire-free, wireless and cloud-based access control solutions – has been been awarded the prestigious Secured by Design (SBD) accreditation for its electronic security products.
This means that the company’s XS4 electronic escutcheons and XS4 GEO electronic cylinder products have not only passed SBD’s stringent security tests, but also that these approved products will be routinely audited or re-certified every year, in turn providing valuable evidence of the company’s continued compliance.
SBD is governed by a UK-wide representative Board whose members include chief constables and works with police forces, the Government, local authorities, regulatory authorities, developers, builders, product manufacturers and many other organisations around the country to implement effective security standards in environmental design and product resilience.
Independent academic research shows that SBD developments can achieve crime reductions of up to 75% compared to non-SBD sites.
Ramesh Gurdev, managing director of SALTO Systems UK, stated: “We’re extremely proud to have been awarded Secured by Design accreditation. The SALTO XS4 electronic escutcheons and XS4 GEO electronic cylinder products are now certified and compliant to the highest industry standards.”
Gurdev added: “We always strive to deliver the most technologically advanced electronic access control solutions, and this certification means our customers can rest assured that SALTO products are among the most secure in the market.”
