EMKA security for cabinet locking

Cabinet Access Products

New 3500 program biometric locking system from EMKA offers greater personnel and data protectionControl Access to Server Cabinets and Boost Regulatory Compliance with an Indisputable Audit Trail
Stopping access control at the data centre door provides no protection against insider theft. That’s why every data privacy rule and regulation – PCI DSS, HIPAA, FISMA and more – considers the protection of physical assets to be as important as protecting the data stored or processed within those assets.

Cabinet Access Products can be configured in a variety of ways – at the individual cabinet door and/or at the end of a row of cabinets – and feature a wide range of both single and dual-factor authentication methods utilising fingerprint biometrics, RFID smartcard technology and PIN entry.

Bus central controller for up to 32 cabinetsBus is a central controller that distributes control signals and power for to up to 32 cabinets. Choose where the authentication takes place, either at each cabinet or at the end of a row of cabinets. For cabinet level authentication, choose between fingerprint or RFID card. For end of row authentication, the user enters which cabinet door they are attempting to access, then uses any combination of PIN, RFID and fingerprint to authenticate.

Server Cabinet Locks are available in three formats and can be combined to provide multi-factor authentication in your data centre:

BioLock – a biometric fingerprint cabinet lock solution.

iCardLock – iCard solutions provide the end-user simplicity offered by traditional keycards, but with the benefits of RFID technologies.

ELock – we pride ourselves on offering our customers multifactor authentication, and the eLock system is what makes that possible. The electromechanical cabinet lock lets you use a combination of fingerprints, keycards, iClass cards and traditional keycards.

DualLock is the industry’s first dual-factor authentication device that combines fingerprint biometrics with RFID smartcard technology. By storing the fingerprint template(s) on the RFID card, DualLock eliminates the requirement of uploading templates to the device, allowing it to integrate with any legacy access control management (ACM) system.

MultiCardLock integrates into any standard cabinet swing-lock handle and features the latest in universal RFID card reader technology. The device is available in two versions: MultiCardLock-HF, capable of reading any high-frequency (13.56 MHz) RFID smartcard, or MultiCardLock – HFLF, capable of reading both high-frequency and low-frequency (125 KHz) prox cards. The versatile MultiCardLock products can integrate with any access control management (ACM) system as well as with control equipment, such as Bus and Sentry.
