OnGuard version 7.5 provides enhanced access control and management options, robust cybersecurity and increased browser-based solutions. Web and mobile optimized, OnGuard 7.5 also offers a comprehensive visitor management solution as well as enhancements to its clients, modules and apps.
Advanced visitor management solution
The OnGuard® 7.5 next generation visitor management suite provides unparalleled ease of use, increased mobility and seamless integration across a range of devices, from mobile to desktop. Intuitive and flexible, the visitor management suite recognizes and responds to customer preferences for a concierge visitor experience, versus an unattended lobby where visitors can self-serve.
Additional access and support
OnGuard 7.5 also offers support for Platform as a Service (PaaS) through Microsoft’s Azure cloud hosting platform. This gives OnGuard customers access to an array of service—from data storage to utility computing—and allows them to take advantage of two critical platform capabilities: Azure Active Directory and SQL Azure for database services.
Mobility while maintaining security
The new BlueDiamond Mobile 2.1 feature allows users to activate their mobile credentials without removing their phone from their pocket or bag. This feature is made possible by the incorporation of BlueDiamond firmware into an Assa Abloy wireless lock, PN120, enabling it to work seamlessly with the Blue Diamond app.
Unified & video support
With the OnGuard Monitor and Surveillance clients, OnGuard 7.5 now provides a mobile way to view video, allowing users to remotely monitor live LNVR video and customize video feeds. OnGuard Monitor client provides a unified experience featuring live and recorded video linked to alarms or devices, enabling users to view and personalize their monitoring environment. OnGuard Surveillance is a light-weight browser-based video viewing application offering customizable layouts.
OnGuard 7.5 now supports Two-Factor Authentication through OpenIDConnect, Single Sign On across browser and thick clients, and NIST- and NERC- compliant password management. An OnGuard Hardening Guide has also been released to support customers in optimizing their system's cybersecurity.
