Morse Watchmans, provider in key control and asset management systems, is bringing out of the box solutions to Intersec 2017 with its recently enhanced KeyWatcher Touch. New features being presented at their booth (Stand E10, Hall S2) this week include security and notification upgrades and ease of use improvements that make the key management system even more flexible and useful in fulfilling the safety and security needs of resorts and casinos.

“Integrated security systems, the standard in resorts and casinos as well as other markets, require an increased degree of component security to ensure system integrity,” said Fernando Pires, VP of Sales and Marketing, Morse Watchmans. “We have bolstered the security features of our KeyWatcher Touch to meet these demands, allowing users to be confident in implementing the system throughout the enterprise.”

New security features protect the system from cyber breaches via the network. With the firewall enabled, all incoming traffic is ignored unless it is on the specific ports the system requires for network and server communication. The data between the KeyWatcher Touch and the KeyWatcher Touch Server can now be encrypted with AES256 technology with a pre-shared key that is definable on a site-by-site basis.

For further operational convenience, a number of additional upgrades have been implemented. KeyWatcher Touch Server service can now run under a domain user account. Windows authentication is supported for SQL, while server logins eliminate the need for the IT department to add SQL users to the SQL Server for the purpose of authentication. The KeyPro III software import utility has been revamped to make it easier to use; for example, imports can now be performed as needed rather than having to complete them all up front.

According to Pires, day-to-day user conveniences have been upgraded including the ability to replace keys from TrueTouch key tracking software using the SmartKey reader. A new notification that allows for users to be notified when an overdue key has been returned is also included, as well as notifications for dual and triple user removals/returns. All reports in TrueTouch now support being saved/viewed as a PDF, or saved as a CSV file.

“With these updates, KeyWatcher Touch makes key control for the enterprise safer, easier and more convenient,” said Mr. Pires. “It also adds to the ways users can benefit from a key management system investment.”
