HID launches open platform reader range

by Andy Clutton

HID Global has announced the launch of HID Signo, a line of readers built on an open platform aimed at simplifying system deployment and management, while meeting the security requirements of dynamic environments and setting organisations up for connected access control.

The readers are interoperable with over a dozen physical and mobile credential technologies so organisations can use their technology of choice and easily migrate to the latest solutions at their own pace. Additionally, the technology supports Apple’s Enhanced Contactless Polling (ECP) to enable Student IDs in Apple Wallet.

Features include automatic surface detection that recalibrates and optimises read performance based on the mounting location.  For rugged, outdoor performance, the readers are also IP65 rated with no additional gasket needed, and feature a capacitive touch keypad resistant to harsh weather conditions. The readers store cryptographic keys on certified EAL6+ secure element hardware and custom authentication keys can be used to further enhance security. HID’s patented velocity-checking feature also protects against brute force rapid electronic attacks.
