HID Global’s iCLASS SE platform also now includes support for the Open Supervised Device Protocol (OSDP). Recently established as a standard by the Security Industry Association (SIA), OSDP with Secure Channel Protocol (SCP) provides bi-directional communications and security features to interconnected devices. HID Global has made significant contributions to the specification, and support for OSDP adds key capabilities to the company’s products including central management of readers for lower operational costs and faster and easier configuration.
The iCLASS SE platform also supports Seos digital keys from HID Global parent company ASSA ABLOY, which has launched the Seos ecosystem for issuing, delivering and revoking digital keys on mobile phones with NFC technology. Seos keys on mobile phones replace mechanical keys and access cards for opening doors to homes, hotels, offices, hospitals, universities, industries and commercial buildings.
Both the iCLASS SE platform and iCLASS Seos credentials have recently won industry awards. The iCLASS SE platform was named a New Product of the Year by Security Products Magazine, and the iCLASS Seos credentials portfolio has been selected by the ASIS International organization as winner of the 2012 ASIS Accolades Security’s Best competition, which recognizes the industry’s most innovative new technologies, products and services.
HID Global will be showing its expanded iCLASS SE platform along with an extensive suite of technologies, products, solutions and services at ASIS International 2012 in Philadelphia this week, in Booth #1509 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, September 10-13, 2012.
HID Global’s iCLASS Seos credentials and iCLASS SE platform readers with OSDP support are available now. For more information visit iCLASS Seos credentials and readers with OSDP support.
