Access control for the highest level of security

When storing sensitive data and increasing business mobility, it is important to implement advanced security solutions to identify and protect data.

When choosing a card/reader solution, it is important that simple basic requirements are defined:

  • prevent a third party from copying your access cards;
  • not depend on a third party to create access cards;
  • help prevent credentials from being replaced or imitated.

To meet the specific needs of critical industries, STid also provides a range of high security access control readers compliant with European Directives (99/92/EC and 94/9/EC) and ATEX (EN60079) and IECEx certified.
