Identive Group Inc. introduced TouchSecure OpenAccess, a family of access readers that enable a range of organizations to upgrade and integrate their physical and logical access control systems quickly and cost-effectively while retaining existing proprietary physical access systems.
For companies that wish to upgrade their older access control systems to newer technologies that offer higher security and more flexibility, the new reader id designed to provide a migration path that enables a gradual swap-out of employee credentials over time, without the need to rip out and replace existing controllers, wiring or access readers.
TouchSecure OpenAccess also supports the convergence of physical and logical access systems around the use of one identity credential. The reader also offers complete scalability from local to cloud-based management and reporting.
TouchSecure OpenAccess readers support multiple proximity and smart card formats, including proximity-125 kHz, NXP MIFARE Classic, DESFire EV1, ISO14443A/B CSN, PLAID, ISO 15693, NFC and U.S. government personal identification verification (PIV), including PIV-I.
The TouchSecure OpenAccess reader is based on international standards including ISO14443A/B, ISO7816, FIPS201, FIPS140-2 and PLAID. With remote connectivity capabilities, firmware technology updates can add new compatibilities in the future.
In addition to traditional Wiegand and RS-485 communication to a controller, TouchSecure OpenAccess readers offer support for Ethernet and Wi-Fi, enabling remote management from the desktop and overall system management in the cloud.
Identive’s TouchSecure OpenAccess readers are available now.
