SCM Microsystems Inc., a provider of products, services and solutions for the security and identification industries, announced that it and Hirsch Electronics have teamed up with local partner Native Systems to deliver a smart access control solution to the Critical National Infrastructure Authority (CNIA) in Abu Dhabi. The CNIA is tasked with handling the protection and security of the emirate’s vital assets and infrastructure.
The integrated smart access control platform enables CNIA to centrally manage and track the access of employees, visitors and contractors across various CNIA sites. The combined SCM and Hirsch solution integrates the various CNIA sites onto a common security platform, ensuring consistent levels of security and technology standards across the system while manage the infrastructure of individual sites.
Al Otaiba Enterprises is the prime contractor for this project. Hirsch is delivering the full access control hardware and software components while SCM Microsystems is providing the access control and smart card reader infrastructure. Native Systems, an SCM Microsystems distributor, is providing the local system integration expertise and installation of the system across the various sites.
The project is underway. The first phase will be completed after the successful relocation of the CNIA to their new site; phase two will then be deployed over the next year in multiple stages.
