Servelec Technologies Awarded New Patent

Continuing the company’s strategy to deliver ground breaking technology solutions to its customers, Servelec Technologies has been awarded a patent for its unique device access control methodology. The patent for the access security software is particularly relevant to remote telemetry units (RTUs) of which Servelec Technologies is a market leading designer, manufacturer and supplier.

The new device access control methodology will reduce the time spent granting access for an individual to potentially thousands of individual RTUs in geographically remote locations, translating into significant cost savings. The system will also result in greater network security in the context of ever-growing threats to infrastructure and cyber security. For example, a water company may have a high number of isolated locations with individual software security.  This patent would allow the effective management of all the different security systems thereby substantially improving efficicencies and ease of use.

This successful patent application demonstrates Servelec’s commitment to delivering leading edge technology to its customers and is a continuation of the company’s commitment to enhancing product capabilities and the company’s intellectual property.

Andy Sullivan, Managing Director of Servelec Technologies commented: “I am excited to be able to announce this successful patent award as it further demonstrates our position as a leading edge technologies business, supporting international infrastructure providers. Servelec Technologies is committed to continuously enhancing our product range in order to extend our reach and provide a better level of service to existing and new customers.” 

While the patented ‘Device Access Control Method’ was devised for RTUs it can easily be utilised as an application for other industries which require off-line access control to devices such as photo-copiers or even vehicle logging devices.
