LenelS2, a provider of advanced security systems, introduces OnGuard version 7.6, its latest enterprise security management system that offers rich feature and operability enhancements to its access control platform, while also extending its cloud compatibility, integration capabilities and convenience. LenelS2 is a part of Carrier, a global provider of innovative heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC), refrigeration, fire, security and building automation technologies.
“With the technology enhancements in OnGuard 7.6, our valued-added resellers and growing customer base will be able to leverage operability improvements as well as enhanced cybersecurity, cloud and cellphone features to experience a more scalable, accessible and cloud-compatible enterprise security platform,” said Jeff Stanek, president, LenelS2. “OnGuard 7.6 demonstrates our ongoing investment in the platform while continuing our progress in browser-based application usability.”
Manage privacy or safety concerns
OnGuard 7.6 browser-based client applications enable system administrators to more easily deploy and operate the system. End user customers who monitor alarms, manage visitors and approve access requests will appreciate the convenience of cellphone browser-based clients as part of the standard installation process. In addition, an enhanced setting in OnGuard Surveillance and OnGuard Monitor browser clients enables role-based restrictions.
OnGuard 7.6 also includes a dynamic new reader/alarm panel interface, the LNL-1324e
An operator is able to view recorded video beyond a specified timeframe to manage privacy or safety concerns. Both clients feature new options that enhance video viewing and simplify navigation. Cybersecurity and compliance enhancements include use of the TLS 1.2 protocol to encrypt OnGuard 7.6 communications, including email and browser client use; elimination of default passwords for compliance; as well as an updated OnGuard Hardening Guide.
Expanded cloud compatibility
OnGuard 7.6 also includes a dynamic new reader/alarm panel interface, the LNL-1324e. This I/O module, with AES 256 encryption, enables doors to be conveniently connected to an OnGuard platform using either structured cabling or via the onboard Ethernet for easier installation.
Additional OnGuard 7.6 enhancements include:
- OnGuard Visitor Management support of PDF417 barcode technology, providing greater scalability and reliability.
- Expanded cloud compatibility that leverages Amazon Web Services virtual machine images or Amazon Machine Images.
