IRVINE, Calif., June 12, 2012 – HID Global, trusted leader in solutions for the delivery of secure identity, today announced the production release of its next generation EDGE EVO and VertX EVO controller platform that brings intelligence and decision-making to the door for advanced and highly customizable networked access control solutions. EDGE EVO and VertX EVO offer an open and scalable development platform for the deployment of a wide range of access control functionality, including remote management options, real-time monitoring, report generation and a powerful custom rules engine that enables the use of the system hardware for complimentary applications. Protecting the hardware investments of end user organizations, the new platform builds on the success of the company’s EDGE and VertX solutions and provides the most extensive access control architecture that delivers enhanced security features and superior performance with versatile installation and future upgrade options.

“HID Global’s EDGE EVO and VertX EVO controller platform, including a Developer Tool Kit with OPIN application programming interface (API), offers expanded capacity and higher performance, demonstrating our commitment to providing open solutions based on direct feedback from our partners,” said John Fenske, vice president of product marketing with HID Global. “The state-of-art features in our next generation IP-enabled platform emphasize HID Global’s dedication to driving market innovation to efficiently manage identities for access control while also ensuring our customers optimize their Genuine HIDÒ investment.”

The scalability of the EDGE EVO and VertX EVO controller platform enables a comprehensive range of future access control functions that are interoperable with wireless locks and deliver enhanced security, such as implementations of highly advanced access rules, keypad door commands and large-scale anti-passback. Additionally, VertX EVO controllers operate within the company’s Trusted Identity Platform® (TIP™). These components will enable this version and future revisions of the controller platform to operate with fully trusted connections from host to controller to reader, substantially increasing security options for access control systems of the future.

EDGE EVO and VertX EVO platform components include:
• EDGE EVO Controllers, Reader/Controllers and IO Modules that enable higher security with an on-board encrypted Hi-O communication bus. EDGE EVO also broadens its worldwide usability of networked access control solutions with the addition of 12/24VDC lock support, mounting options and plug-and-play IO modules that extend IO at and behind the door.
• VertX EVO V1000 Controller and the V2000 Controller/Reader Interface solutions that expand cardholder capacity, decrease door transaction time and increase door uptime, while offering 100% plug-in compatibility with existing HID Global access control systems and associated V100, V200 and V300 downstream devices.
• A comprehensive Developer Tool Kit (DTK) for developing to OPIN API when migrating from first generation EDGE and VertX or for new development using the latest platform. The DTK is equipped pre-wired EDGE EVO Controller, VertX EVO V1000 and VertX interface boards and IO switchboard, as well as a full set of documentation.
