CISCO SECURITY SEAL
WHAT ARE SECURITY SEALS?
Historically, seals of wax were affixed to important documents to indicate forgery or tampering; modern-day seals essentially serve the same purpose. Manufactured from sturdier materials, ranging from plastics to heavy metal, the seals of the modern age serve as barriers to unauthorized opening, or evidence that tampering has occurred.
Security seals function as a strong disposable lock and a seal to provide evidence of entry or violation. Indication of tampering will prompt deeper investigation on the matter, to apprehend the violator, and allow measures to be put in place to prevent repeat attempts.
Seals are generally categorized into three types, namely:
Indicative Seals – light duty seals to provide tamper evidence
Security Seals – intermediate strength seals that require tools to open
High Security Seals – stronger barrier seals that require heavy tools to open.
