Medeco XT Traffic Cabinet Lock Wins Platinum Govies Award

The Medeco XT Traffic Cabinet Lock won a platinum Govies Award and was recognized as an outstanding government security product at the 2019 ISC West trade show, the largest security industry trade show in the U.S.

Salem, VA. (PRWeb) April 16, 2019 -- Medeco Security Locks, a division of ASSA ABLOY N.A., located in Salem, Va., was presented with a platinum Govies Award by Security Today and GovSec at the 2019 ISC West trade show, the largest security industry trade show in the U.S.

The Govies Awards honor outstanding government security products in a variety of categories. The Medeco XT Traffic Cabinet Lock won a Platinum Award in the "Locks and Locking Systems" category.

The Medeco XT Traffic Cabinet Lock helps secure America’s transportation infrastructure,” said Gene Cronin, Medeco XT product line manager. “Cyber-attack is a constant threat in the USA. All across America, the flow of city traffic is regulated by an Intelligent Traffic System (ITS) cabinet found on practically every street corner. ITS cabinets protect the hardware that controls the traffic lights. A simple retrofit lock solution like the Medeco XT Traffic Cabinet Lock is the quickest, most cost-effective way to add the accountability necessary to help eliminate cabinet tampering, and to help secure the advanced equipment contained within these cabinets.”

“For the past ten years, Security Today and GovSec have hosted The Govies, and I have been amazed at the innovation and technology entered in this product contest. Truly, manufacturers are ramping up their research and development, bringing top-quality solutions to the government vertical,” said Ralph C. Jensen, editor in chief of Security Today and GovSec magazines and “The high number of entries we receive each year corresponds with the need to provide better security options not only at the federal level but also at the state and municipal levels of government. I believe these products and solutions only prove that the government relies heavily on the technology advances in the private sector.”
