ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions Americas Group Brand, HES, is expanding its range of server cabinet locks to include Open Supervised Device Protocol (OSDP) and mechanical options. These new innovations are designed to help protect physical assets, data and access to critical infrastructure networks.

“With digital data and records, we need to create additional layered physical security protection that starts at traditional doors and extends to server cabinets, lockers, drawers and enclosures,” said Patrick Hill, Product Manager, ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions Americas. “Different facility footprints, enclosures and areas now require protection. OSDP support in the KS210 server cabinet locks means users get comprehensive control solutions.”

OSDP is a Security Industry Association (SIA) standard that improves interoperability between access control and security products. An international standard, OSDP uses bi-directional communication between devices for higher levels of data security by monitoring consistently for attacks or threats.

Now on the General Services Administration’s (GSA) FIPS 201 Evaluation Program Approved Product List (APL), the KS210 is newest server cabinet lock from HES along with:

  • The enhanced HES KS200 integrated access control swing handle server cabinet lock, which uses Wiegand (200) communications.
  • The new KS-M Mechanical Server Cabinet Lock – a mechanical version of the swing handle server cabinet lock. This product uses a SFIC six or seven-pin mechanical key override as a standard feature to protect data and server rooms as well as audio/video installations, telecommunications equipment and other industrial settings.
  • The current KS100 integrated wireless model featuring Aperio technology. The battery powered cabinet server lock option integrates with HID NFC and/or BLE Bluetooth mobile credentials for access control.
