Re-inventing the Lenel experience
July 2018, Access Control & Identity Management

Lenel has introduced its OnGuard 7.4 security-management platform, which can be deployed in the cloud and accessed through a web browser on a mobile device or computer.

OnGuard version 7.4 combines ease of use, mobility and simple upgrades. When deployed under an Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) model, this latest version can reduce or eliminate the need for onsite OnGuard server hardware along with the need for multiple software installations and updates.

“OnGuard version 7.4 provides more choices than ever as end-user demand for cloud deployment with desktop and mobile access to enterprise security continues to grow significantly,” said Jeff Stanek, president, Lenel. “This version is the culmination of years of behind-the-scenes work to deliver a re-imagined OnGuard platform that is cloud deployable and can be used on a daily basis without client software installation.”

Two new OnGuard version 7.4 browser-based client applications make it easier for users to manage their systems. OnGuard Monitor provides alarm-management capabilities and OnGuard Access Manager provides access-rights management to area managers. Improvements to the OnGuard Credentials client and OnGuard Cardholder Self Service module further expand the range of OnGuard tasks that can be completed through a web browser, including the ability for anyone in the enterprise to schedule visitors or change their own PIN number.

New Lenel Series 3-door controllers support FICAM-approved authentication of FIPS-201 U.S. government credentials and encrypted communication to readers supporting the OSDP Secure Channel protocol and other authentication solutions. FICAM is a set of security disciplines designed to ensure federal systems and facilities are being used by the right person, at the right time, for the right reason. OnGuard version 7.4 also enables more than 1 million cardholder records on the LNL-4420 intelligent controller.

Lenel has also significantly extended wireless lock support in OnGuard version 7.4. In addition to supporting Schlage NDE/LE series of Bluetooth-enabled locks, support for the ASSA ABLOY Aperio technology has also been enhanced. These enhancements reaffirm Lenel’s commitment to customer choice, while increasing OnGuard’s value in both wired and wireless access control.

Supporting the cloud-based drive, Lenel has also announced the Lenel BlueDiamond mobile ecosystem, a complete cloud-based, keyless mobile credential management platform. Lenel continues making door access faster and more convenient with a new smartphone app that anticipates user’s door selections, reducing authentication time. The BlueDiamond mobile ecosystem includes an intuitive mobile app, innovative multi-factor Bluetooth and radio-frequency identification (RFID) readers, which are all tightly integrated into the OnGuard security management platform to provide one-click issuance and management of mobile credentials.

The latest version of the smartphone app detects and shows nearby BlueDiamond mobile readers on the home screen. Users can designate regularly accessed doors as favourites, placing them in a tray which makes the readers easier to locate. The mobile app’s quick connect feature pre-authenticates a favourite reader as a user nears a frequently used door, reducing the time to unlock the door.

Other features within the app include notification when approaching favourite doors even if the phone is locked while the app is active in the background. Users can also create custom names for each reader/door and hide seldom or never-used doors.

“The BlueDiamond mobile ecosystem delivers a smart and flexible solution that enhances the organisation’s security measures. The mobile readers support both proximity cards and mobile credentials; and this flexibility helps users easily convert existing readers to Bluetooth-enabled readers or transition to mobile credentials in the future,” said Jeff Stanek, general manager, Lenel, North America.

BlueDiamond readers support mobile and wearable devices – including iOS smart devices, Apple Watch and Android. The BlueDiamond mobile app version 2.0 is available for immediate download at the Apple App Store and Google Play.
