HID Global

HID Global, a front-runner in trusted identity solutions, announced the launch of HID® Signo, its signature line of readers that creates a new industry benchmark for the most adaptable, interoperable and secure approach to access control.

The new readers dramatically simplify system deployment and management, meet the advanced security requirements of today’s dynamic environments, and set organisations up for smarter, more connected access control.

Demand for versatile solutions

With the industry now seeking to use access control systems as a backbone for creating intelligent environments, consultants, integrators and end-users are increasingly demanding more versatile, high-performance solutions,” said Harm Radstaak, Vice President and Managing Director of Physical Access Control Solutions, HID Global.

HID Signo is built on an open platform and delivers on our commitment to innovation with its unprecedented flexibility and robust set of forward-looking features that optimise workplace experiences.

Our goal is to put more choices in the hands of our customers and give them peace of mind in knowing they can continually adapt their systems as requirements change.

Mobile access

For ultimate versatility, the readers are interoperable with over a dozen physical and mobile credential technologies so organisations can use their technology of choice and easily migrate to the latest solutions at their own pace.

Additionally, with support for Apple's Enhanced Contactless Polling (ECP) to enable Student IDs in Apple Wallet, HID Signo is driving the next wave of flexibility and convenience with mobile access.

Smart features

Readers are IP65 rated and feature a capacitive touch keypad resistant to harsh weather conditions HID’s new readers are packed with smart features, such as automatic surface detection that recalibrates and optimises read performance based on the mounting location.

For rugged, outdoor performance, the readers are also IP65 rated with no additional gasket needed and feature a capacitive touch keypad resistant to harsh weather conditions.

Transcending traditional access control

HID Signo’s connectivity-by-design model empowers administrators to remotely configure and diagnose readers as well as monitor status through a centrally managed and connected reader ecosystem.

Additionally, the configuration can be further streamlined through the controller via the Open Supervised Device Protocol (OSDP).

HID’s novel approach to access control also lays the foundation for a future of cloud-connected systems that will enable new applications and innovative capabilities, such as the ability to proactively anticipate and address system issues before they occur,” Radstaak added.

Multi-layered security

Delivering multi-layered security with built-in support for OSDP Secure Channel and HID’s proven Security Identity Object technology, the readers store cryptographic keys on certified EAL5+ secure element hardware and custom authentication keys can be used to further enhance security.

HID’s patented velocity-checking feature also protects against brute force rapid electronic attacks.

Availability

The new line of HID Signo Readers is available through Advantage Partners in major markets worldwide, with a phased roll out in select regions.
