Complete access control and video management A browser and an internet connection are all that's required to access Vanderbilt’s latest addition to its cloud-based arsenal. ACT365 is a complete access control and video management solution. Ease of use and convenience are key ingredients to the product’s strength and depth in the field. ACT365 eases the installer's job for simple and quick installations and performing maintenance tasks remotely. The result is delivering ultimate control while saving time and money. With access to all sites from one online interface, installers can get more done, more easily, and in less time. Managing systems remotely Moreover, as ACT365 hardware is connected directly to the IP network, and no software needs to be installed as hosting is effectively outsourced, it ensures that the IT headaches of creating backups, VPNs, and port forwarding are things of the past. ACT365 also allows end-users the ability to manage their systems remotely including viewing live cameras. This remote monitoring capability makes it well-suited to multiple sectors. For example, dealing with early morning deliveries at a retail store is an ideal example of ACT365 in its prime. From the ACT365 app on their smartphone, the store manager can identify the courier through a live video feed and then remotely open the doors of the loading bay to allow the delivery to be made. The manager can monitor all of this remotely and once the delivery is finished, they can close the loading bay door and it will automatically rearm. Spotting misuse of gym membership Another instance of ACT365’s firepower can be seen at gyms or other types of membership clubs. If gym members are passing their access fobs to friends who are not members, ACT365 enables the gym manager to quickly match up access control events with relevant camera footage and email the clips to those members who are allowing their fobs to be misused. This is an effective way of ensuring the practice does not continue. As seen through numerous product demonstrations during IFSEC, ACT365’s features put the customer first. They eradicate once burdensome responsibilities that can now be promptly completed through the click of a button on mobile or desktop devices. Vanderbilt’s investment and innovation in cloud-based solutions harness the best efforts of the company’s core qualities – agility, adaptability, and dependability. Through the power of remote monitoring available from ACT365, Vanderbilt offers both installers and end-users convenience thorough simplicity.

Nedap’s new end-to-end security solution is the first to offer digital protection for access control by unifying best practices from both IT and physical security. Protecting Access Control Systems Until now, the latest best practices protecting IT systems from digital threat haven’t been used for physical access control systems. This is an oversight that is leaving many companies vulnerable to cyber attacks. Nedap and AET Europe have worked together to overcome this by developing AEOS end-to-end security. Taking a forward-thinking new approach, they have combined the best practices of both IT and physical security in an all-in-one access control system. Albert Dercksen, Head of R&D at Nedap, explains why AEOS end-to-end security is needed: “IT and physical security have been following different rules to protect systems. But modern access control systems are, in fact, IT systems connected to corporate networks and should be treated as such. That’s why we’ve applied the digital security principles used in IT to AEOS, our physical access control system.” Communication Secured From End-to-end In AEOS end-to-end security, Nedap and AET Europe have combined the IT principles of encryption and strong authentication. This ensures storage in every element of AEOS is secure, as is communication between all elements. Both DESFire keys and digital certificates are stored in a Secure Access Module (SAM) inside door controllers. This leaves card readers with no role in decrypting data, so secure communication between card and controller is guaranteed and, by storing digital certificates in the same SAM, strong authentication is achieved to ensure secure communication between controller and server. Protect Critical Infrastructure In this way, AEOS end-to-end security offers far higher protection against both physical and digital threats. It also enables keys to be updated securely and centrally, without having to physically attend each card reader. AEOS end-to-end security meets a stringent level of security requirements across Europe, and is already being used to protect critical infrastructures in several countries. In France, for example, it has gained CSPN certification from the French information security agency, ANSSI.

HID goID™ platform for mobile IDs delivers the secure infrastructure to allow citizen IDs to be safely provisioned to and authenticated on a smartphone. HID goID™ allows smartphones to be used for identification purposes, but also for transactions in ways not possible with an ID card. HID goID™ Impacts Travel A smartphone using HID goID™ enhances a citizen’s day-to-day experience. Imagine how HID goID™ can impact travel. Today, citizen’s use a national ID or driver’s license at the airport for domestic travel, but also carry a boarding pass separately on a phone or a piece of paper. With HID goID™, the two converge – providing greater security, convenience and flexibility for both the citizen and the authenticating party. Rather than in wallets, IDs can now be securely stored on smartphones. Customized Details HID goID™ can be customized to only release relevant information so citizens can control when and how much information is shared, allowing them to protect their privacy. For example, when a citizen is purchasing age-restricted goods, they only need to provide their photo and age – none of the other personal information loaded on a physical driver’s license needs to be shared. Other HID goID™ advantages include the ability to renew or modify the driver’s licenses and other ID credentials remotely, saving citizens from traveling and waiting in a crowded office environment. This is also good news for government agencies, who can do their jobs more efficiently. Download HID White Paper: Mobile ID Solutions for Government-to-Citizen Applications

Throughout the UK there are many examples of smart city transformation, with key industries including transport, energy, water and waste becoming increasingly ‘smart’. A smart city is a one that uses information and communication technologies to increase operational efficiency, share information with the public and improve both the quality of government services and resident welfare. Smart access is an important step forward in providing technologically advanced security management and access solutions to support the ambitions of smart cities and their respectively smart industries. Explaining Smart Access If we used the standard definition of smart, it would be to use technology to monitor, control and manage access, but the technology must be adapted to both the physical and management characteristics of smart cities. Smart access is an important step forward in providing advanced security management and access solutions to support the ambitions of smart cities For example, it would not make sense to install an iris biometric sensor at an isolated water storage tank, which is out in the open and may not even have electrical power. Nor would a permissions management system work, one that does not let you update permissions simply and easily and cannot be customized. With high volumes of people entering and exiting different areas of the city, it is important to be able to trace who has been where, when and for how long. Advanced software suites can provide access to all operations performed by users, including a complete audit trail. This information is often used by business owners or managers for audits, improvements or compliance. When initiating a new access control system it is important that the supplier and customer work together to understand: Who can enter a secure area Where in the building each individual has access to When an individual can enter a secure area How an individual will gain access to a secure area This information can be crucial in the event of a security breach, enabling investigators to find out who was the last known key holder in the building and what their movements were while there. Installing an electronic lock does not require electrical power or batteries, much less a connection to send information Modernizing Locks And Keys Installing an electronic lock does not require electrical power or batteries, much less a connection to send information, which means that it can be installed on any door as you would a mechanical lock without maintenance requirements. Permissions are stored within an intelligent key. If you have authorization for that lock, it will open. If you don’t, you won’t be allowed to enter and all of the activity carried out by the key will be recorded. You can update permissions from a computer or using an app on a cellphone at the time of access, which will update the key's permissions via Bluetooth. This allows shortened validity periods, constrains movements to be in line with company access policy and removes travel and fixed authoriser costs. This then delivers increased flexibility and higher levels of security. Remote Access Control Utilities Access rights can be set at any time and on any day, and if required can allow access on just one specific occasion Using an app improves access control by updating access rights in real time with the Bluetooth key. It also provides notification of lost keys, joint management of access schedules, protection of isolated workers and much more. Combined with new technological solutions, an app allows contextual information to be sent, such as on-site presence, duration of an operation, authorisations and reporting of anomalies. Access rights can be set at any time and on any day, and if required can allow access on just one specific occasion, for example to repair a failure. Access can be restricted to enable entry only during working hours, for example. Permissions can be granted for the amount of time required, which means that if permission is requested to access a site using a mobile app, the company should be able to access it, for example, in the next five minutes. Once this time has passed, the permission expires and, if a key is lost or it is stolen, they will not be able to access the site. The rules for granting permissions are infinite and easily customisable, and the system is very efficient when they are applied; as a result, the system is flexible and adapted to suit company processes and infrastructures. Using an app improves access control by updating access rights in real time with the Bluetooth key Finding Applications To Create Solutions In many cases, companies themselves find new applications for the solution, such as the need to obtain access using two different keys simultaneously to prevent a lone worker from accessing a dangerous area. The software that manages access makes it smart. It can be used from a web-based access manager or through personalized software that is integrated within a company's existing software solution, to automatically include information, such as the employee's contractual status, occupational risk prevention and the existence of work orders. In some companies, the access management system will help to further improve service levels by integrating it with the customer information system, allowing to link it for instance with alarms managers, intrusion managers or HR processes. With over one million access points currently secured worldwide, this simple and flexible solution will play a strategic role in the future of security.
The optical speed lane and turnstile sector of the security market has had a very busy 2017. Growth in commercial construction has provided more opportunity. Innovations in technology have given speed lane manufacturers an opportunity to deliver a better product. Orion Sales Increase And Company Growth Orion Entrance Control, Inc., had a great 2017 as sales increased and our company grew. We attribute our success to the unique approach we have taken since day one: providing customized products that offer customers more than a “one-size-fits-all” solution. We offer the line of turnstiles that you would expect from any reputable manufacturer in the marketplace, but we know that when dealing with lobby security or entrance control, one size definitely does not fit all. By providing various options to supplement our core line, we give our customers a solution that best suits their needs.The ability for security technologies and their manufacturers to work together is becoming increasingly more important to our customers One area that we will continue to build upon in the development of our products is in technology integrations. The ability for security technologies and their manufacturers to work together is becoming increasingly more important to our customers. The manufacturers that can future proof their products to allow the addition of new technologies and to protect a client’s investment from obsolescence will be the big winners in 2018 and beyond. Integration In Entrance Control Orion ECI’s products are built with technology and designs that have this vision for the future. For example, we work with the leaders in biometrics and Point of Sale (POS) solutions to integrate these systems into our entrance control products. Oftentimes, with just a wave of the hand or the right credential, approved users can enter with no hassle or even ring up a purchase. From a business standpoint, Orion ECI experienced a year of continued process improvement and design in 2017. We reached record sales revenues as we continued to receive orders from our existing enterprise clients and new customers. For 2018, we plan to add personnel in key growth areas. This will include additional inside and outside sales positions and product production and engineering roles.
