At a time when concerns about campus safety are increasing in frequency, how can physical security be hardened without sacrificing easy access to campus facilities, resources, and services? Convergint Technologies recommends next-generation reader and credential technology powered by Seos®. Adding HID Global’s flexible, advanced cryptography to your integration, strikes the right balance between accessibility, security, and privacy for today’s campus.
What makes Seos technology different?
Students want mobility.
Students crave mobility as a choice. Seos credential technology is software-based, enabling identity data to be securely placed on a variety of form factors, including mobile devices like smartphones, watches, and tablets. Reader and credential technology supports most every popular phone technology and communication standard. Students are more apt to keep track of their device, far less likely to lend it out, and generally have additional security measures on the phone itself.
Administrators love the design.
HID Global’s strict adherence to best practices for data protection and widely reviewed open standards ensure excellence in design. Its unique, layered security approach to key management, mutual authentication, and secure messaging ensures a high degree of data privacy and security. Simple cloud-based provisioning, revocation, and communications to the reader are all protected.
Lost devices carrying digital keys are more likely to be noticed and reported than physical keys or ID cards. The mobile access control model also streamlines credential distribution and retrieval by enabling remote credential management throughout its lifecycle. It is also easier to modify applications and security parameters via software downloads and firmware updates, which eliminates the risk of key and card copying, and simplifies the task of temporarily issuing new keys and canceling them when lost or stolen.
