Introducing Cardax FT XtraSec

August 2005 Perimeter Security, Alarms & Intruder Detection

Gallagher Security Management Systems, a division of the Gallagher Group, last month released the Cardax FT XtraSec. Cardax FT XtraSec is a high security electronic security system incorporating authentication and very high levels of data encryption using a minimum encryption level of 128 bits to prevent an intruder attack on system communications.

This solution is suited to high-grade commercial sites such as financial institutions, critical infrastructure sites vital to national stability, organisations that participate in sensitive markets, or high security government sectors.

Cardax FT XtraSec provides the control system for high-level electronic physical security. At its core it integrates access control and intruder alarms. Drawing on the XML and OPC Interfaces to enable a system-wide security solution, it also provides a platform for integrating with other systems such as biometrics, DVR and intercom systems, digital intercom systems, building management systems and cardholder management systems.

The new system provides one platform for supporting both high security and regular security (including access control) integrated on the one system. The ability to divide or partition the system using the System Division feature facilitates the management of different areas according to each area's security level. Combined with operator privileges, you can control who has access to information in the system within each division, and define the functions that each operator is authorised to perform.
