Software House Now Integrated with NEDAP AVI Vehicle/Driver Identification Readers

Software House C•CURE 9000 security and event management solution is now integrated with NEDAP AVI vehicle and driver identification technology .

NEDAPWhen integrated with the C•CURE 9000, NEDAP AVI identification readers can identify vehicles and/or people from long-range distances, making the readers ideal for parking access applications, managing logistics and for weighing installations and mining safety applications. NEDAP AVI identification systems ensure that only vehicles with authorized drivers can access restricted areas while keeping traffic moving through access gates. Vehicles and their operators can be authorized for entry while their vehicles are still moving, and can be identified by the readers through closed windows, increasing passenger safety and overall efficiency.

“The NEDAP AVI identification solution is an integral component in our intelligent physical access control portfolio,” said Rafael Schrijvers, Access Control Product Marketing Manager, EMEA, Tyco Security Products. “With the integration of NEDAP AVI with C•CURE 9000, we offer the most convenient and secure solution for identifying vehicles and persons entering and exiting your protected area.”

NEDAPThe C•CURE 9000-integrated NEDAP AVI identification solution uses UHF tags that can be deployed as passive, battery-operated tags. The UHF tags can be read from distances up to 33 feet and use a circular polarized antenna to provide freedom of tag placement and orientation. NEDAP AVI’s license plate reader automatically reads number license plates and uses an all-in-one camera, analyzer and IR illuminator. The reader is embedded with onboard processing software that can be configured through a web interface and has a range of up to 19 feet. The NEDAP AVI reader supports a large range of IR-reflective license plates, including most European countries.

The NEDAP AVI readers feature easy installation and user set up and can be configured through a web interface.  An optional Wiegand Interface Module for the camera is also included.

Introducing the Cyber Protection Program from Tyco Security Products

Developed over five years, Tyco Security Products Cyber Protection Program is one of the first in the industry to offer a holistic approach to cybersecurity for physical security products. We’re committed to cybersecurity through a product’s entire lifecycle — from requirements through obsolescence.

We’ve developed our cybersecurity expertise after many years of providing critical solutions for the United States government and large multinational customers, and we hold several industry firsts, including FISMA-ready access control and video solutions.

Six Part Approach to Cyber Protection
Our Cyber Protection Program’s six -part approach to cyber protection for physical security products looks far beyond components and devices and cyber security hardening. The scrutiny begins with the initial product concept and requirements, continues through analysis of system design and programming, and culminates with final testing, integration and evaluation.

  • Secure Product Development Practices – Secure coding and testing reduces the possibility of inadvertently introducing vulnerabilities during product development
  • Inclusive Protection of Components and Systems – Include range of capabilities to complement diverse security needs
  • Configuration Guidelines for Compliance – Provide comprehensive procedures on how to configure C•CURE 9000, VideoEdge and victor systems
  • Testing Procedures – Products undergo rigorous, continuous testing both internally and with an independent test house, to minimize the risk of security updates and new configurations in our cyber-compliant products
  • Rapid Response to Vulnerabilities – Quickly assesses the situation, distributes an advisory bulletin and follow up with fully qualified patches
  • Education and Advocacy – Maintain critical training and development certifications, speaks and advocates for cyber protection for security systems

Tyco’s Cyber Protection Team
Our autonomous cyber protection team, an independent branch of the development group, has deep process control knowledge and specialized expertise in cyber concerns with physical security systems.
