Dot Origin partners with ASSA Abloy to enhance “pioneering” EdgeConnector solution

Dot Origin has partnered with ASSA Abloy Access Control, a UK division of ASSA Abloy, in a bid to enhance the pioneering EdgeConnector system.

Aperio wireless locks have been integrated within the EdgeConnector system for converged physical and logical access management. The solution provides host organisations with physical access control that’s truly integrated with their IT resource access management platform, in turn delivering enhanced security, simple management and easy installation.

All door access requests are processed centrally in real time, resulting in significant compliance and cyber security benefits.

Aperio is designed to upgrade mechanically-locked doors and wirelessly connect them online to new or existing access control systems. Aperio requires minimal modification to doors and premises, offering both a cost-effective and simple security upgrade.

David Hodgkiss, national sales manager at ASSA Abloy Access Control, informed Risk UK: “Dot Origin shares our passion for providing integrated security solutions that deliver the greatest value for end users. Our partnership will enable Dot Origin’s EdgeConnector online door access control solutions to extend even further through the incorporation of Aperio wireless locks.”

Dan Isaaman, technical director and co-founder of Dot Origin, responded: “We’re excited to be able to provide our clients with solutions encompassing the Aperio product set. Dot Origin’s EdgeConnector solutions have already been integrated for a number of years with HID Global’s security products. This new partnership will present EdgeConnector’s end users with an extended choice of flexible installation configurations thanks to the versatility of ASSA Abloy’s Aperio wireless locks.”

EdgeConnector provides real-time, centralised access control decision-making capability without complexity. The system integrates directly with existing IT user administration tools based on Windows Active Directory or an alternative LDAP database.

Physical access management is fully scalable as standard from a server rack to whole buildings; across multiple sites worldwide and for any number of users without the usual restrictions and complexities involved with traditional access control systems.
