Number of SIA OSDP Verified Products Now in the 100s
SIA says over 100 device models have been named OSDP Verified through its program, which validates device conformance to the SIA Open Supervised Device Protocol (OSDP) standard.
SILVER SPRING, Md. — The Security Industry Association (SIA) announces a major milestone in its SIA OSDP Verified initiative.
Over 100 device models have been named OSDP Verified through its comprehensive program, which validates device conformance to the SIA Open Supervised Device Protocol (OSDP) standard.
SIA OSDP standard is an access control communications protocol standard maintained by SIA to improve interoperability, add advanced functionalities and support an AES-128 encryption for security.
Already in use by many leading manufacturers, the standard offers compliance with access control installations that require advanced security or are used in government per FIPS 201-3. Products that are OSDP Verified are displayed in the OSDP Verified Product List and can use the SIA OSDP Verified mark in their product marketing materials.
With this milestone, SIA says security integrators, specifiers and practitioners now have a wider array of OSDP offerings to recommend, and buyers have the confidence products from the SIA OSDP Verified list have been third-party tested and perform within the requirements of the OSDP standard.
“Since its launch in April 2020, the SIA OSDP Verified program has tested and validated 115 products from 18 brands — substantial progress in just a little over two years, highlighting the market need and success of the program,” says Edison Shen, director of standards and technology at SIA. “The program also welcomed three international manufacturers, and continued interest both domestically and internationally continues to grow.”
The establishment of the program was a response to the growing adoption of OSDP in the industry to provide an authoritative source of OSDP solutions and the market confusion for nonverified claims of product compliance with the OSDP standard.
By becoming OSDP Verified and displaying the SIA OSDP Verified mark on their products, access control manufacturers can instill confidence in their customers that their devices have gone through rigorous testing as required by the OSDP standard.
Benefits of becoming SIA OSDP Verified listed by the organization include an authoritative listing of OSDP solutions; a consultative process that provides vendors with implementation and remediation guidance; a lightweight, nonpunitive program with no annual membership fees; and continuous access to open-source testing tools and community feedback that promotes device conformance through the product life cycle.
