Genetec’s next-generation Synergis Cloud Link eliminates the need for proprietary access control systems

Dubai, United Arab Emirates: Genetec Inc. (“Genetec”), a leading technology provider of unified security, public safety, operations and business intelligence solutions, today announced the immediate availability of a new generation of its Synergis™ Cloud Link PoE enabled IoT gateway for access control. . Manufactured in North America to mitigate supply chain delays, Synergis Cloud Link addresses the growing demand for non-proprietary access control solutions and provides a secure gateway to a cloud or hybrid deployment.

When modernizing an existing security system, Synergis Cloud Link’s open architecture allows organizations to leverage their current access control infrastructure and easily upgrade to a secure IP-based solution. Synergis Cloud Link provides a more efficient approach to multi-site deployments and replaces the need for servers, lowering cost of ownership. The Synergis Cloud Link IoT gateway has built-in capabilities that keep an organization’s access control up and running even when the connection to the server is down.

The new generation of Synergis Cloud Link offers more features, enhanced cybersecurity, and helps future-proof security installations. Synergis Cloud Link features enhanced cyber security such as encrypted user data, Secure Boot, and an EAL6+ industry gold standard Secure Element that stores cryptographic elements.

“The need for non-proprietary access control solutions has never been greater,” said Thibault Louvet, director of the access control product group at Genetec Inc. “Our new generation of Synergis Cloud Link enables us to provide organizations with a powerful, secure and intelligent gateway for the latest technology while allowing them to easily connect to cloud or hybrid access control environments and maintain their existing security investment, including hardware, cabling and infrastructure.”

The device is compatible with non-proprietary access control modules from the industry’s most established manufacturers, including HID Global, Axis Communications, ASSA ABLOY, Mercury Security, Allegion, SimonsVoss, STid and others. A single Synergis Cloud Link device can support up to 256 readers and electronic locks, 600,000 cardholders, 150,000 offline events, as well as monitor hundreds of zones and alarms.

Synergis Cloud Link introduces a new firmware design that improves reliability and lifecycle management and update management. It also opens the door to a containerized approach to on-device operating software, expanding its future capabilities.
