Medeco Combats the Bump Key
Law Enforcement and Security Dealers Educated in standard lock risks.
Salem, Va., August 4, 2006 Security flaw in your locks? asks a recent Newsweek.com headline. The term "Hackers" is typically associated with those who attempted to break into computer systems. Now Hackers are people attempting to defeat a wide range of protected systems including the locks on your doors.
Medeco, the industry's leading high security lock manufacturer, has expanded its acclaimed educational training module to explain the vulnerability that many locks face to a bumping attack. This training is offered to Crime Prevention associations and security dealers.
Medeco is commonly known as a "bump proof lock" by those who view picking as a sport. Standard locks utilize a single locking point, while high security locks such as Medeco utilize multiple locking technologies. To see why Medeco is not vulnerable to this type of attack, a short video is available at www.medeco.com in the Interactive Security Solutions link.
According to statistics provided by the National Crime Prevention Council (NCPC) and the Department of Justice, nearly 2/3 of all break-ins occur with no sign of forced entry. While some of these crimes may be a result of an unlocked door, most experts agree that lock bumping, picking or use of an unauthorized duplicate key are often the case.
This should provide the economic motivation for a consumer to pay a bit more for quality high security locks for their home or business that protect everything they own, according to Clyde Roberson, Director of Technical Services at Medeco Security Locks. Bumping is a vulnerability to many standard locks, and that's why we educate the experts on proper steps that can be taken to minimize the risk. Not all locks can be bumped; consumers just need to know the differences.
