Global security manufacturer Gallagher Security has announced that it is the first manufacturer to achieve the latest Automatic Access Control Systems (AACS) standard in the United Kingdom.
Proving its continued commitment to innovation and meeting the increasing demands of the security industry, Gallagher continues to comply with the strictest security standards to develop high security solutions trusted by governments across the Five Eyes alliance.
Awarded by the UK Government’s National Technical Authority for Physical and Personnel Protective Security; National Protective Security Authority (NPSA), the AACS 2022 standard provides sites, including those home to critical national infrastructure (CNI ) with the assurance that Gallagher software and hardware meets the most stringent physical and cybersecurity requirements.
Richard Huison, Regional General Manager – UK and Europe, said: “This achievement demonstrates that our solutions have been designed from the ground up with an intrinsic level of security, and is confirmation of Gallagher’s dedication to cybersecurity.
“Our compliance with the AACS standard not only complements our CAPSS 2021 approval but provides every organisation who uses the Gallagher product with confidence they have the most up to date and cyber-resilient platform in the industry,” added Richard.
Gallagher is the only manufacturer to meet the updated AACS 2022 standard which includes cybersecurity features required by CAPSS, and as a manufacturer of their own equipment, Gallagher offers a full-service solution, with the assurance that all their products used in the AACS process are compliant in accordance with government standards.
NPSA’s Catalogue of Security Equipment (CSE) provides a range of products that have been evaluated against specific NPSA security standards and the performance rating achieved and is available to help security practitioners identify appropriate physical security equipment.
