LEGIC Identsystems announces that LUMEN ID (www.lumenid.co.uk), an innovative provider of wireless, Internet of Things (IoT) based access control solutions from Northern Ireland, has joined the LEGIC Global Partner Program.
“We are delighted to be working with industry professionals such as LEGIC who share in our ethos of finding the right partners and developing the right access control products that not only take advantage of Wi-Fi, NFC and today’s IoT devices and protocols, but that also offer the highest level of Cyber Security resilience to meet the most demanding of security requirements”, said George Redpath, Director of Lumen ID. “We look forward to working with LEGIC and other collaborative partners within their approved network”.
“My role at LEGIC Identsystems puts me in contact with extraordinary people in many fields - from security and engineering to commercial and government. Since we work closely with our partners, we reflect a lot on how we can inspire successful teamwork, cooperation, and innovation. LEGIC is thrilled to announce a strategic partnership with Lumen ID, a truly cutting-edge Access Control Reader company. This collaboration marks a significant milestone in both companies' commitment to fostering innovation and delivering unparalleled value to our clients,” said Leon Rose, Business Development Manager at LEGIC.
Lumen ID has designed the innovative in•Touch access control reader to cost effectively offer customers a high level of access control and cyber resilience using Wi-Fi and Open Supervised Device Protocol (OSDP). Based on LEGIC’s SM-6300 Security Module which seamlessly operates with LEGIC’s smartcard and mobile credentialing platforms, the in•Touch reader can be provided as a standalone access control solution or be integrated with third party manufacturer systems and readers using the in•Touch OEM reader module. It supports the latest access control technologies such as LEGIC Bluetooth credentials, Apple and Google Wallet mobile credentials, NFC (13.56 MHz) and Ultra-Wideband, as well as physical credential technologies such as MIFARE DESFire® EV1, EV2, EV3 and MIFARE Classic®. 125KHz proximity is also supported, along with legacy Wiegand technology to ensure that no customer is left behind when planning their security upgrade paths.
Security by design and smart key management was a major consideration in the design of the in•Touch reader and module. The reader self-initiates all connections to the internet and vitally ensures that unrequested connections are rejected. It can also connect using secure OSDP communication. To create an environment of embedded trust, readers can also be personalised to users’ unique security requirements and offer secure elements that can be independently preloaded by customers or OEM partners so that customers can be confident that their keys & certificates always remain private. The in•Touch reader offers a secure life cycle, secure boot and secure firmware upgrades that are essential for Cyber Security resilience and compliance.
