STid, creator of the world’s most awarded access control reader, announced today that IMRON Corporation, a leading provider of security management software and access control solutions, has selected its Architect® reader as IMRON’s preferred mobile credential reader. STid Architect, the industry’s first modular based access reader, has been fully integrated in IMRON’s cloud-based UnityIS for a best-in-class hardware and software security solution.

Award-Winning Readers from STid

STid created the first module range of secure RFID, NFC (HCE) and Bluetooth® readers. The Architect readers are based on an intelligent RFID core (Bluetooth optional) with six interchangeable module options including card reader, keypad, touchscreen, biometric fingerprint sensor, QR code and 125 kHz options. This unique modular concept provides the ability to upgrade features and security levels easily. STid was the first RFID manufacturer to receive First Level Security Certification (CSPN) and to offer access solutions compliant with European regulations on personal data protection (GDPR). The readers are fully compatible with the SIA Open Supervised Device Protocol - OSDP™ V1 and V2 – and High Security SSCP®, Secure & Smart Communication Protocol for certified solutions – making them the ideal choice for global companies with offices in Europe and the U.S. The patented, tamper resistant system protects sensitive data and allows the deletion of authentication keys. Architect readers use the latest MIFARE® DESFire® EV2 contactless chips with new data security mechanisms for secure transactions based on AES-128 and enhanced protection against relay attacks. The Architect Blue range uses EAL5+ certified crypto processor to encrypt data.

Partners have full control of the configuration and management keys of their readers for complete autonomy. Any device with an Android or iOS system and that supports Bluetooth and/or NFC is compatible with the readers, which includes smartphones and a full range of tablets; ultraportable laptops; connected watches, bracelets, and rings; keychains; cars; and more. The readers offer five options for ID – badge, slide, tap-tap, remote, and hands-free – so individuals can use whatever is easiest and most intuitive to them.

“STid takes a unique, modular approach to readers, which optimizes inventory and reduces the number of parts needed by 40 percent,” said Frederick Trujillo, U.S. operations manager, STid. “Our reader is the first line of defense – and most visible – for security solutions. The Architect reader series is exceptionally reliable, flexible, simple and future proof. Aptly named the Architect series, we offer multiple aesthetic options to work well within various corporate identities and interior designs.”
