Gallagher achieves UK cybersecurity standard

Issue 1 2021 Access Control & Identity Management, Cyber Security, Government and Parastatal (Industry)

Global security manufacturer, Gallagher, has released its latest certified high security solution to market. The Gallagher UK CPNI CAPSS High Security System features compliances to the Cyber Assurance for Physical Security Systems (CAPSS) standard, and the Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI) Readers and Tokens standards. This latest approval demonstrates Gallagher’s investment in delivering high security solutions for governments in the Five Eyes alliance.

Passing the CAPSS evaluation gives UK critical national infrastructure sites confidence that Gallagher’s software and hardware meet the toughest cybersecurity requirements. The CPNI Readers and Tokens standards ensure physical access control readers and credentials are robust against both cyber and physical attacks.

“With cyber threats growing in sophistication, cyber protection has never been more vital,” says Richard Huison, regional manager, UK and Europe, for Gallagher. “Cybersecurity is an integral part of Gallagher’s physical security solutions. We’re pleased with the result from our CAPSS evaluation – it demonstrates our commitment to providing security solutions which offer the highest level of protection.”

CPNI protects national security in the United Kingdom by helping reduce vulnerability to terrorism and other threats in national infrastructure. Gallagher’s range of compliant solutions can be found under the CPNI Catalogue of Security Equipment (cpni.gov.uk/cse-categories).
