The security company partnership will offer enhanced solutions based on standardised ISO14443 credentials

Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies, a leading global provider of security and safety solutions and manufacturer of Schlage contactless smart credentials and readers, and SCM Microsystems, a leading provider of both contact and contactless security and identity solutions for secure access and a business unit of Identive Group, are partnering to offer enhanced solutions for physical and logical access based on standardised ISO14443 credentials.

The latest Schlage physical access reader platform utilises MIFARE DESFire™ EV1 credentials. When combined with SCM's secure range of contactless smart card readers, the integrated solutions lets employees use the same card or token to access their PCs and networks as they use to enter company buildings. As a result, organisations can leverage their investments in physical access systems while securing their IT assets.

Utilising proven, industry standard technology allows Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies and SCM to provide robust, secure solutions at competitive prices. The initial phase of the partnership between the two companies will be an integrated product that enables a fully converged physical and logical access control system. The companies expect to expand this offering in the coming months through other industry partnerships and provide the market with leading solutions that address the growing demand for standards-based contactless technology.

"This partnership helps customers manage the convergence of physical and logical access and enables them to deploy one credential across the enterprise," said John Menzel, Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies Director of Business Development. "The need to protect both physical and electronic assets continues to grow and we look forward to delivering standards-based solutions that will ensure that organisations and end-users alike are protected both by their access control systems and from their obsolescence."

"By offering standards-based solutions, Schlage and SCM bring significant benefit to the market," explains Joe Pilozzi, Director of Business Development for SCM. "In contactless credentials, much of what is offered today is proprietary and ultimately controlled by one source which, frankly, limits its usefulness. Standards-based technology allows solutions providers to respond to what the market needs with greater flexibility and faster response times. In the end, users need a system that can be more easily implemented, expanded and replicated."
