ASSA ABLOY HES Brand Expands Server Cabinet Lock Series

The HES KS210 Series of server cabinet locks now include Open Supervised Device Protocol (OSDP) and new mechanical options.

PHOENIX, Ariz.—ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions Americas Group Brand, HES, is adding to its range of server cabinet locks to include Open Supervised Device Protocol (OSDP) and mechanical options.

Patrick Hill, product manager, ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions Americas, says that with more important information stored digitally it is imperative that multiple layers of security are deployed. 

“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,” emphasizes Hill. “Different facility footprints, enclosures and areas now require protection. OSDP support in the KS210 server cabinet locks means users get comprehensive control solutions.”

The company explains OSDP is a Security Industry Association (SIA) standard that is designed to improve the interoperability between access control and other security components. The protocol, ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions Americas Group, HES continues, utilizes bi-directional communication between devices to deliver high levels of security by constantly monitoring for attacks or other threats.
