New HIRSCH Mx(TM) Controller Delivers Future-Proof, High Assurance For Access Control Systems

Stocks in this article: INV INVE

LAS VEGAS, April 10, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Identive Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:INVE) (Frankfurt:INV), a provider of solutions and services for the identification, security and RFID industries, today announced the launch of the HIRSCH Mx™ Controller to deliver an unprecedented level of integrated intelligence for high assurance access control. Identive will be demonstrating the new controller at ISC West 2013 in Las Vegas, April 10-12.

"Our track record of thirty years in physical access and IT security enabled the creation of HIRSCH Mx, the most advanced, robust and future-proof access control solution in the market today," said Ayman Ashour, chief executive officer of Identive. "HIRSCH Mx offers our customers support for legacy, current as well as anticipated future standards, and can be upgraded in place to accommodate the introduction of converging identification credentials such as NFC mobile phones, and high assurance credentials including PIV, PIV-I, biometrics and PLAID. The HIRSCH Mx control system addresses the critical need for higher security assurance across the commercial and government sectors with strong authentication capabilities. As awareness of the need for cybersecurity increases, we felt it critical that the security system itself be built with a high level of protection against cyber threats."

To deliver the highest level of security, the new HIRSCH Mx Controller is ready for cloud management, incorporating PKI architecture that allows all enabled devices to communicate securely and seamlessly using industry standard X.509 digital certificate technology. HIRSCH Mx features an onboard EAL 6+ high-capacity encryption dedicated processor, which positions the controller for use in high security environments by ensuring communication is protected between door readers, sensors, controllers and local and/or cloud-based services and thus overcoming common security vulnerabilities.

Interoperability with widely used technologies from multiple vendors was a key design goal for HIRSCH Mx, which aligns to important industry standards, including Wiegand, OSDP, Ethernet IP v4, X.509 (2048bit) and AES (128bit), and offers backward compatibility with virtually all existing product line protocols such as SNET. Additionally, the onboard Ethernet controller is upgradeable and is designed to support future implementations of IP v6 and edge devices. The HIRSCH Mx controller also integrates seamlessly with Identive's existing HIRSCH systems, including HIRSCH DIGI*TRAC controllers, HIRSCH ScramblePad® and HIRSCH Velocity™, so that existing customer credentials, readers, and user databases can be retained.
