SALTO Systems has announced that the SALTO Neo electronic cylinder is its latest product to gain the BSI Enhanced Level IoT (internet of things) Kitemark certification for access control systems.

British Standards Institution (BSI) has been part of the collaborative work to give clarity on best practices for IoT security, subsequently developing a scheme to assess connected/IoT devices. The scheme determines whether a product has the appropriate security controls for its intended use and is suitably supported throughout its intended life. This cyber/physical security scheme forms the security element of the BSI Kitemark for IoT/Connected products.

Like the already BSI certified SALTO XS4 One electronic lock product family, BLUEnet wireless peripherals, and SALTO controllers and readers, the SALTO Neo family of electronic cylinders had to undergo advanced security testing for vulnerabilities and security flaws in BSI’s state-of-the-art IoT laboratory enduring BSI’s most in-depth and exacting testing and analysis.

“We’re proud that our SALTO Neo cylinder family now holds both ‘Secured by Design’ accreditation and IoT Kitemark status as both are increasingly important in the specification of access control systems. The award means we now exceed the market standard for a number of security products across our access range which provides SALTO customers with confidence that they are buying one of the most secure access control solutions available on the market today,” said SALTO Systems Limited MD Ramesh Gurdev.

Designed for doors where fitting an electronic escutcheon is not possible or required, the compact SALTO Neo Cylinder can be installed on standard doors, server racks, gates, cabinets, electric switches, sliding doors, and more. It’s also available in an extensive range of models suitable for use on almost any kind of door.

The SALTO Neo clutch system is energy efficient, dropping power consumption to impressively low levels resulting in 100,000 / 130,000 operations from just one set of batteries. Standby power consumption is also reduced, further extending battery life. Now IP66-rated, the SALTO Neo Cylinder is also weather-resistant.
