A preview of the latest security technologies you'll find on the floor of ISC West at the Sands Expo and Convention Center, Las Vegas, from April 6-8.
Access Control Software
New DSX-AES256 software from Dallas-based DSX Access Systems, Inc., contains government-approved AES-256 bit encryption technology that can be implemented systemwide. Encryption capabilities are built into the software and every field controller. Communications to each location can optionally be encrypted with a unique encryption key assigned by the customer for communicating with that location’s field controllers. The software encrypts communications to all panels in that location without the use of add-on devices. Implementation is easy because the encryption technology is inherent to the software and field controllers. All 1040 series and 1022 controllers can be flash-upgraded to the AES-256 bit version.
