Amherst, New York (PRWEB) February 05, 2014
ENTERTECH SYSTEMS today announced the deployment of Suprema biometric devices for access control at Switch, the developer of the renowned SUPERNAPS, the largest, best-designed, technology ecosystems in the world. Switch selected Suprema’s BioEntry Plus biometric reader for deployment through ADI Global, a leading global wholesale distributor of security and low voltage products. Through them, Switch identified ENTERTECH SYSTEMS and Suprema as the provider to supply both the hardware and technical support they needed for installation and deployment.
As one of the most reliable technology ecosystems in the world, Switch has the most advanced data centers in the world and serves over 600 global clients from passionate start-ups to Fortune 1000 enterprises. The Switch SUPERNAPS are at the heart of their technology ecosystem. Started in 2003 and located in Las Vegas, the SUPERNAPS are the highest-density, safest, most interconnected technology facilities in the world.
Switch had set out to identify a new access control provider that they could work with to replace and upgrade their biometrics company-wide, from building entrances, data floor entrances and on customer spaces. They needed a new biometrics system that would work with their existing legacy Wiegand system. They also required readers and technology that would be easy to install and easy to use for their user base of over 4,000 people, which consists of customers and on-site employees.
“ENTERTECH SYSTEMS’ technical support team has been both knowledgeable and supportive to my team at Switch,” said Ed Foresythe, the Security Systems Manager responsible for all aspects of the deployment at Switch.
With Switch’s Las Vegas Digital Exchange Campus spread over 400 acres, the company’s security systems team has been busy retrofitting the 11 buildings to install the Suprema devices. The team, which handles project responsibility for design, programming, installation and on-going usage, has three staff members trained to do installation and over 50 officers trained to do enrollment and transferring of all their users to the new system.
“At ENTERTECH SYSTEMS, our highly responsive, results-driven technical support team works with partners and customers to ensure complete functionality and satisfaction with our identify management solutions.” said Rob Douglas, CEO of ENTERTECH SYSTEMS. “With technology adoption continuing to fast track at a record pace, it is becoming increasingly important that critical infrastructure such as the Switch SUPERNAPS data center is absolutely secured. And that access is only granted to authorized personnel through their “true identify” rather than approximation technologies such as pass cards, personal identification numbers (PINs), or keys.”
