HID Global

HID Global®, a worldwide leader in secure identity solutions, recently announced that parent company ASSA ABLOY´s innovative Aperio® wireless lock family can now deliver all of the benefits of the Genuine HID value proposition for performance, value and service, including interoperability with Seos credentials from HID Global and ASSA ABLOY, and with the HID Global iCLASS SE reader platform.  Aperio lock technology enables doors to be integrated into an access control system without having to install wiring, make any structural changes to the doors, or modify existing access control credentials or system software.  

ASSA ABLOY’s Aperio locks have been Genuine HID Technology® certified and now further extend the industry’s broadest portfolio of end-user options for creating trusted, advanced and dependable secure identity solutions.  Aperio lock technology provides organisations with an easy way to wirelessly link mechanical door locks to new or existing access control systems so that the doors can be opened with RFID cards rather than keys.  As a certified Genuine HID Technology, Aperio now also supports HID Global’s iCLASS SE platform, which is the benchmark for highly adaptable, interoperable and secure access control solutions, and includes Seos credentials for improved security, privacy and portability.  Additionally, Aperio locks support iCLASS®, MIFARE® and DESFire®, as well as low frequency 125 kHz HID Prox and EM410x technologies.

By certifying ASSA ABLOY’s Aperio wireless lock family as a Genuine HID Technology, ASSA ABLOY and HID Global give Aperio customers the assurance that these products are supported by a wide array of innovative and interoperable solutions that have been enhanced by an international network of partnerships and alliances and are manufactured in worldwide ISO-certified facilities.  This Genuine HID commitment also means that all products are backed by the industry’s strongest delivery-and-response platform plus global product warranty and agency certifications.  Aperio customers also benefit from interoperability with the HID Global iCLASS SE platform and Seos credentials.  Based on open standards, the iCLASS platform ensures that technology investments can be leveraged in the future, and that today’s access control solutions will work with future products including those using NFC-enabled smartphones and other devices.

“Aperio products with Genuine HID Technology will enable a wide array of revolutionary new security solutions for our customers,” said Chris Bone, vice president, Access Control with ASSA ABLOY EMEA.

“Aperio’s Genuine HID Technology certification gives customers the assurance of an exceptionally high level of quality and service, and extensive options for creating an access control infrastructure that includes wireless electronic locking technology, among other current and future capabilities.”

“This certification brings the world’s most successful lock brand into the industry’s top access control portfolio,” said Kerry Reid, vice president of HID Connect with HID Global.  “Combining Aperio with Genuine HID Technology significantly broadens the range of innovative products and solutions that we can offer our customers to help them meet their secure identity needs, and further demonstrates the power of HID Global and ASSA ABLOY’s collective technology innovation and leadership.”

HID Global and ASSA ABLOY continue to reinforce the value of their combined portfolios for customers who have rapidly converging requirements for physical and logical access control systems, door opening solutions, locks and security products.  The two companies’ combined portfolios also extend to mobile access control and locking solutions that work with NFC-enabled smartphones and other mobile devices.  The collective offering includes readers and locks, secure tokens for logical access control, and the Seos ecosystem of interoperable products and services for the over-the-air issuing, delivering and revoking of digital keys that enable mobile devices to open doors to homes, hotels, offices, hospitals, universities, and industrial and commercial buildings.

Aperio wireless locks are now listed in the Genuine HID Technology-enabled product matrix featured in access control locks at http://www.hidglobal.com.
