Sielox LLC, a provider of integrated access control, video surveillance, perimeter security, and event management systems, is showcasing mobility in their booth (#7103), here at ISC West with the demonstration of Conekt mobile credentials and readers from Farpointe Data. The mobile reader will work with Sielox’s AnyWare and Pinnacle software platforms connecting to their 1700 Controller.
“We are now offering Conekt to provide our customers with a more convenient solution for multiple credentials with significant ease of use and security,” said Karen Evans, CEO and President, Sielox. “With the simple download of a free app to the user’s smartphone, it’s easy to manage credentials and make access control even more seamless.”
With its core compliant to the Certified Common Criteria EAS5+ Computer Interface Standard, Conekt resists skimming, eavesdropping and replay attacks
Resistant to skimming, eavesdropping
Integrated with Sielox’s 1700 Controller and the AnyWare and Pinnacle software platforms, Conekt uses Bluetooth to enable communication between smartphones and readers. No personal data is required or collected from the user or integrator, and multiple credentials can be stored on the app.
Users can be confident that the solution is hardened for cybersecurity as well. With its core compliant to the Certified Common Criteria EAS5+ Computer Interface Standard, Conekt resists skimming, eavesdropping and replay attacks.
AES encryption for data security
Conekt makes use of strong AES encryption when transferring data, plus the mobile credentials remain protected behind a smartphone’s security parameters, such as biometrics and PINs, and work only when the Conekt app is in use.
“Sielox is an ideal partner to help expand awareness and adoption of our Conekt solution,” said Scott Lindley, Vice President and General Manager, Farpointe Data. “It’s a win for both companies, but even more so for the users who will benefit from this new mobile solution that goes beyond current capabilities to eliminate the frustrations with present smartphone apps and hardware.”
