Genetec and STid form distribution partnership

STid Architect series

STid RFID access control readers supported by Genetec Synergis software are now available through Genetec’s international reseller network.

Genetec, which provides open architecture security and public safety solutions, has added the French developer of RFID door controllers to its certified global network of resellers.

Genetec says the agreement will simplify ordering, installation and maintenance processes and reader configurations in relation to access control hardware – such as the STid Architect series of modular, vandal-proof RFID readers – from STid.

“With STid as an active technology partner in our expanding ecosystem of access control partners, Genetec is able to provide customers total control and choice over the security of credential data from readers to the Synergis access control system,” said Derek Arcuri, product marketing manager at Genetec.

STid Architect series

Through encryption and authentication techniques the STid Architect series provides secure control over an organisation’s access control data, from reader to controller. Customers can manage their own secret keys to read Desfire EV1 cards.

STid readers are available with a standard Wiegand interface or a secured communication channel that combats the tapping of credentials or man-in-the-middle attacks. This feature is helpful where keys cannot be stored on the reader itself insofar as it aids compliance.

“STid is in a great position to grow its presence in the North American market with strategic partners like Genetec,” said Vincent Dupart, CEO 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.”

Genetec also recently updated its flagship, unified security platform, Security Center 5.6, adding a new HTML5-based web client.

Genetec (stand F500) and STid (F1300) will be showcasing their security solutions on stand at IFSEC International, taking place 20-22 June 2017, London ExCeL. Genetec has also been confirmed as sponsor for Borders & Infastructure Expo, which debuts at IFSEC 2017.
