Nedap shows latest innovation in cyber-secured access control at Milestone Systems’ Integration Expo

Nedap is playing a key role at Milestone Systems’ Integration Expo event on Tuesday 12 September in Daventry as it shows its AEOS end-to-end security solution.  The free-to-attend event affords delegates a unique opportunity to see how integrated solutions are developed, and will bring together installers, developers, integrators and specially-selected Milestone Alliance Partners including Nedap (Milestone Systems’ New Solution Partner of the Year).

In dedicated sessions throughout the day, Nedap will describe its collaborative approach with a ‘Best of Breed’ partner, namely Milestone. Delegates will have the opportunity to see first-hand how the integration between Nedap’s AEOS and the Milestone X-Protect Access Plug-In allows end users to enjoy the features of an advanced access control system inside the Milestone VMS environment. This allows operators to exchange cardholder information, monitor entrances, manage alarms and perform full video verification, all in one integrated system.

“As Milestone’s New Solution Partner of the Year, NEDAP is thrilled to be involved in Milestone’s Integration Expo,” said Jeroen Harmsen, director of product management for NEDAP Security Management. “We look forward to showing delegates how innovative access control solutions can drive opportunities for their businesses.”

NedapDigitalDoorCrucially, Nedap’s AEOS end-to-end solution provides end-to-end security, a key requirement given increasing concerns about connecting devices to the Internet of Things (IoT). An open platform is essential if all the information between IoT-connected devices is to be processed and shared with other systems.

While any system that connects to the Internet will imply a high security risk, Nedap’s solution effectively manages the risk of cyber attacks. By encrypting all communication between a card, the controller and the server, security is ensured at every level of the access control system: from the level of the door to the very core of the AEOS system.

Card readers have no role in decrypting data, for example, so secure communication between card and controller is guaranteed.

Digital certificates, meanwhile, are stored in the same Secure Access Module, in turn ensuring secure communication between controller and server.

For the first time in the market, AEOS end-to-end security offers protection against both physical and digital threats and limits the risks of attack.

More information on the end-to-end security assured by Nedap’s AEOS can be found in this video: http://www.nedapsecurity.com/news/end-end-security-helps-customers-secure-their-network

AxisCommunicationsLogoWeb

The drive for efficiency, security and staff safety is an essential focus for the security industry. Ensuring technology is not only fit for its intended purpose, but also fit for use in the future, are key drivers of this commitment. With innovation now a daily feature from a variety of market influencers, knowledge of how to best assess the potential of cutting-edge security technology is often ‘lost in the noise’.

Daren Lang, regional manager of business development in Northern Europe at Axis Communications, stated: “As connectivity and the integration of products continues, the security needs of businesses change. This opens up new possibilities. Our strategies and solutions must change to meet the new opportunities created. We’are thrilled to announce the return of the Axis Partner Showcase. This event is designed to demonstrate how our partners, in conjunction with ourselves, can deliver solutions that stand the test of time, whether looking at the shift from forensic to real time analysis, how to deal with issues around cyber security or keeping pace with new regulations such as the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation.”

Lang added: “As security requirements shift, we see an increasing demand for alternative solutions. Instead of focusing on surveillance alone, businesses are increasingly seeking ways in which smart systems can be integrated, ensuring that technology is flexible and future facing. This is how we help to ensure that technology is not only fit for purpose, but also fit for the future.”

Atul Rajput, regional director for Northern Europe at Axis Communications, stated: “The pace of innovation is core to Axis’ philosophy. It’s of critical importance to keep each of our customers and partners up-to-date with the technology available today as well as its potential for tomorrow. The Axis Partner Showcase event brings this under one roof, providing the best forum available to experience these innovations in person.”
