New Electronic Lock Re-Affirms Gunnebo’s Position as an Innovation Pioneer

Report this content

Gunnebo announces the launch of KelNet, an innovative, high-security electronic lock that enables real-time remote management of security networks, randomised one-time code management and encrypted communication.

KelNet is the first product of its kind to achieve the highest security classification from Europe’s certification agency, the ECB, owing to the uniqueness of its encryption and its resistance to both cyber and physical attack. Biometric verification can also be integrated as an additional security requirement.

The lock is aimed at multiple market segments, including:

  • Retailers requiring simple, secure access for multiple lock users
  • Cash in transit companies in need of easy code management and route planning
  • Banks demanding remote control over networks of electronic locks

It is the first electronic lock in the industry to be EN1300 DS certified by the ECB to communicate data in total security, ensuring confidentiality, authentication, integrity and availability of system data.

KelNet can be remotely operated, giving managers control over a lock or network of locks, wherever they may be. Adding or deleting users, and setting user rights and lock parameters can be carried out remotely and in real time.

Security managers can check the current status of individual locks on the spot, for rapid identification of technical issues and vastly improved response times. One-time codes can be distributed to personnel via a browser or over the phone.

“With its system of encrypted data transfer, KelNet spells the end for complex and costly on-site administration, limitations on the number of users, and keeping logs about who has which rights when and where,” says Stefan Syrén, Senior Vice President Business Unit Safe Storage

“KelNet re-affirms Gunnebo’s leading position at the cutting edge of digital security, in a demanding market that requires certified resistance levels, flexibility and ease of use.”
