Access management

LEGIC’s Security Platform enables contactless access control and scalable security to be individually applied to each corporate department. You can deploy basic employee badge and/or smartphone app entry or add multifactor and biometric authentication for sensitive areas. You can select the identification media (e.g. card, key fob, etc.) and access equipment vendors of your choice, or deploy your access credentials to an iOS or Android based smartphone app.

Features

  • Secure, provisioned access control for employees, guests, service staff and partners
  • Access is controlled at both online and offline locks/access readers
  • End-to-end AES-128/256 encryption and secure key management
  • Secure access control to sensitive areas such as server and storage rooms
  • Badge and/or smartphone app entry can be combined with PIN code or biometric verification
  • Contactless communication from 2 - 20 cm based on RFID/NFC, or up to 10 m based on Bluetooth® Low Energy
  • Encrypted, bi-directional messaging between access points and central management system is ideal for pre-emptive maintenance or access event notifications
  • Create new cards based on your own Master-Token card which is in the hands of your Security Officers. No outside parties or vendors can compromise your system.
  • Supports all popular standards including LEGIC advant and neon, MIFARE, HID iCLASS® as well as iOS and Android smartphones

Benefits

Take control of your own security. Based on LEGIC’s patented Master-Token System-Control (MTSC) for smartcard management, and LEGIC Connect trusted service for smartphone deployment, each infrastructure owner has full authority over their employee’s credentials and infrastructure.

  • Eliminate dependence on access control vendors through LEGIC’s open security architecture - easily move from one vendor to another, as well as support multiple vendors at the same time
  • Access organization and employee badge management is audit-proof against internal and external compliance requirements. All activities can be described as processes and documented according to regulations, or electronically represented as workflows
  • Access control application “segments” can reside on the same card along with other employee badge applications, such as canteen payment, without sharing master encryption key
  • For smartphone deployment, secure provisioning and management of credentials can be done in real-time as well as integration of access control with 3rd party apps
  • Complete record of all access activity is available for security and auditing requirements
  • Easily deployed: provision and manage access rights on employee cards or smartphone apps over-the-air
