PARIS, October 16th 2018—Genetec Inc. (“Genetec”), a leading technology provider of unified security, public safety, operations, and business intelligence solutions, today announced that Genetec Security Center Synergis™, its IP-based access control system, has received the highest level (Niveau de sureté IV) of the Certification de Sécurité de Premier Niveau (CSPN) by the Agence Nationale de la Sécurité des Systèmes d’Information (ANSSI).

Built on an open-architecture, the unified Genetec Security Center Synergis platform offers advanced protection—from access card to software—helping organizations efficiently and securely manage access in single or multi-site facilities.

The ANSSI agency carefully studied and tested the Synergis software and hardware components to assure the system adhered to one of the most stringent standards for European governments. The CSPN rating certifies that Synergis has the latest cybersecurity standards to secure communication, servers, and data at every level of a security architecture.

When Synergis Cloud Link is installed with an expansion module, it supports three secure access module (SAM) card slots. The SAM cards offer reputable protection for storing an organizations’ cryptographic secrets such as the keys required to decrypt MIFARE DESFire EV1/2 credential information. Readers are rendered “transparent” as they no longer contain the keys to decrypt credential information—preventing the risk of skimming and taping attacks. There are many more mechanisms within Synergis™ which secure communication, servers, and data at every level of architecture, making it one of most cyber-secure access control solutions available today.

“Historically, access control systems were designed to manage credentials for cardholders and administer rights and permissions. With the emergence of so many cybersecurity threats today, the security landscape has drastically changed,” said Derek Arcuri, Product Marketing Manager at Genetec Inc. “The CSPN certification gives an additional level of validation and confidence to our channel community and to the European market—providing our customers with peace of mind, and yet another reason to trust Synergis,” added Arcuri.
