Allegion, Gallagher Launch First FIPS 201-2 Electronic Lock for Government

Allegion and Gallagher have announced the first FIPS 201-2 electronic lock designed for government procurement.

Schlage’s AD-302 FIPS 201-2 has been integrated with Gallagher’s Command Centre security software platform, becoming the first electronic lock to be listed on the GSA-approved list.

“As government entities are only permitted to procure GSA APL listed compliant products and services, we are pleased to offer the first electronic lock through our collaboration with Gallagher,” says Mark Casey, director, national electronics sales at Allegion. “With budgets top of mind for agencies, the solution provides a cost-effective, all-in-one reader lock that is FIPS 201-2 compliant for ease of procurement.”

The integrated solution successfully passed extensive government security vulnerability and interoperability testing based upon the standards outlined by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and governing bodies.

“We are deeply committed to developing best-in-class security solutions that are optimized for our government clients,” says Scott Elliott, vice president of the Americas at Gallagher.

“We are the first physical access control system (PACS) provider to complete this integration with Allegion and to gain GSA APL approval for the integrated FIPS 201-2 approved solution. As we continue our strong partnership with Allegion, we intend to advance additional solutions to market that are secure, unified, and that solve the unique and evolving security challenges of our customers.”

The solution combines the electrified lock, credential reader and access control sensors (door position switch and tamper switch), allowing for real-time communication and enabling centralized lockdown capabilities when necessary.

To simplify accessibility, control and compliance, the Schlage AD-302 FIPS 201-2 solution is compatible with personal identity verification (PIV) and personal identity verification interoperable (PIV-I) credentials, as well as the Department of Defense (DoD) common access cards (CAC’s) and performs certificate validation at the time of access.

There’s also challenge response for the CAK certificate, ensuring compliance with Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 (HSPD-12), and meets Federal Information Processing Standard 201 (FIPS 201-2).
