SPONSORED STORIES FROM THE INDUSTRY COMPANY IP SHOWCASE SECURITY Nedap shows latest innovation in cyber-secured access control Nedap has showcased its AEOS end-to-end security solution, which is said to massively reduce risks of cyber attack. Launched at Milestone Systems’ Integration Expo event on September 12, delegates had the opportunity to see first hand how the integration between Nedap’s AEOS and Milestone XProtect Access Plug-in allows 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. Nedap’s AEOS end-to-end solution is said to provide end-to-end security, a key requirement given increasing concerns about connecting devices to the IoT. An open plat form is essential if all the information between IoT connected devices is to be processed and shared with other systems. A spokesman for Nedap said: ‘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 (SAM), ensuring secure communication between controller and server.’ For further information visit: Mayflex details Fluke promotion Mayflex offers a range of testing equipment from Fluke Networks that help to make installations easier and more accurate.
