|The solution provides physical access control that is integrated with IT resource access management platform
Dot Origin Ltd, have partnered with ASSA ABLOY Access Control, a UK division of ASSA ABLOY, the global leader in door opening solutions, to enhance their pioneering EdgeConnector system.
Physical and logical access management
Aperio® wireless locks have been integrated into the EdgeConnector system for converged physical and logical access management. The solution provides organisations with physical access control that is truly integrated with their IT resource access management platform, delivering enhanced security, simple management and easy installation. All door access requests are processed centrally in real time, resulting in significant compliance and cyber security benefits.
Aperio® is designed to upgrade mechanically locked doors and wirelessly connect them online to new or existing access control systems. Aperio® requires minimal modification to doors and premises, offering a cost effective and simple security upgrade.
Integrated security solutions
David Hodgkiss, National Sales Manager at ASSA ABLOY Access Control, said: “Dot Origin shares our passion for providing integrated security solutions that deliver the greatest value to end-users. Our partnership will enable Dot Origin’s EdgeConnector online door access control solutions to extend further, through the incorporation of Aperio® wireless locks”.
Dan Isaaman, Technical Director and co-founder of Dot Origin, said: “We are excited to be able to provide our clients with solutions encompassing the Aperio® product set. Dot Origin’s EdgeConnector solutions have already been integrated for a number of years with HID Global security products, a division of ASSA ABLOY. This new partnership will present EdgeConnector users with an extended choice of flexible installation configurations, thanks to the versatility of ASSA ABLOY’s Aperio® wireless locks.”
Real-time access control decision-making capability
EdgeConnector provides real-time, centralised, access control decision-making capability without complexity. The system integrates directly with existing IT-user administration tools, based on Windows® Active Directory or an alternative LDAP database. Physical access management is fully scalable as standard; from a server rack to whole buildings; across multiple sites worldwide and for any number of users, without the usual restrictions and complexities involved with traditional access control systems.
