STid announced a technology integration and sales distribution partnership with Genetec.
Through this partnership, Genetec has integrated the STid Architect access control readers into its Synergis access control software, part of Genetec Security Center, the company’s unified IP security platform, to meet the increasing need for corporate security and to protect sensitive data.
STid Architect produces the latest generation of access control readers for Mifare Desfire RFID tags and smartphones with Bluetooth Smart. “With the support of the Architect range, Genetec can offer its customers total end-to-end control of their access control data securely, and in compliance with Anssi certification. This is the result of several years of collaboration that makes STid an ideal partner for supporting our security initiatives”, said Thibaut Louvet, Access Control Systems Director at Genetec.
To implement the highest levels of security, Genetec and STid have combined Genetec Synergis Cloud Link, an intelligent PoE-enabled appliance, with the Secure Communication Protocol (SSCP) approved by Anssi, the French Network and Information Security Agency. STid was the first manufacturer to obtain Top-Level Security Certification (CSPN). Data communication is therefore secured end-to-end, from identifier to controller, using encryption and authentication methods recognized by the relevant authorities.
“STid is in a great position to penetrate the North American market with strategic partners like Genetec Inc.,” said Vincent Dupart, Chief Executive at STid. “Customers are looking for secure, open, and user-friendly solutions—three key success factors that give STid and Genetec solutions stand-out options in their respective markets,” added Vincent Dupart.
