Everlock Systems Helps Anadarko Petroleum Solve an Access Control Problem
As a manager or security officer of a large commercial facility, there are hundreds of people that you have to please. When it comes to access control, whether it is getting other employees in and out quickly or satisfying superiors that the property is safe and secure, there is a lot of pressure to balance the often competing wants and needs of different audiences when providing security.
With numerous employees and non-employees needing access to the property, the risk of allowing unknown or unwanted visitors to gain access to your site becomes a distinct possibility. While the old school “daisy chain” of numerous padlocks, each with a different key, might once have been acceptable, use of such a system is no longer considered secure.
The Client & Their Challenges
Jesse Spradlin, Field Coordinator for Anadarko Petroleum Corp., had to face this exact dilemma not too long ago. Property owners had requested a shared access system that was easy to use but provided an increased amount of site security. “Daisy chaining” many padlocks together created two security problems; staff would oftentimes find themselves locked out of their own site by careless users, and there was no protection against unauthorized locks from unknown parties being added to the chain. Access control requires that access be controlled, so Jesse knew that they had to make a change.
After searching the internet and asking others about their experience with us, the company decided that a shared access locking device from Everlock Systems would provide everything that they were looking for in their locking system.
To increase their access control at sites requiring shared access, Anadarko Petroleum Corp. decided to purchase Everlock Systems’ SLX-4 unit. This patented steel multi-lock device solved their shared access problem by providing heavy-duty protection throughout their property. This satisfied the property owners’ security concerns as well as eliminated employees’ distrust of the old chain locking system. With Everlock’s unit, site security is improved and the locking system is simple and easy to use.
The landowner was extremely happy with the look and functionality of the system. Not only was it simple for the company to install, but it has also helped deter potential crime and limited access to only authorized personnel and third party service providers. There have been no problems with the locking system, and they look forward to its continued use!
