Boon Edam Demonstrates Powerful Intrusion Prevention at GSX 2018

Boon Edam Inc., a global leader in security entrances and architectural revolving doors, is showcasing the company's continuing advances in technology and customer support in booth #1715 at the GSX (formerly ASIS) exhibition in Las Vegas, NV from September 25-27. With the launch of their new Interactive Troubleshooting Guides for Security Entrances, a range of new partner technology integrations and the growing adoption of anti-tailgating and anti-piggybacking entrances by Fortune 50 Global companies, the company is advancing its position as the market leader in the Americas in security entrance solutions.

"Boon Edam has held the top position for security entrances in the Americas since 2012 according to IHS Markit reports," said Mark Borto, President and CEO, Boon Edam, Inc. "Serving our customers and this industry with stronger, safer options for protecting entrances from tailgating and other unauthorized incursions will always be our first priority."

Boon Edam's focus on providing unsurpassed support for its service partners was the impetus for the launch of the company's new interactive troubleshooting guides. Created to help accelerate the diagnosis and problem-solving process for service technicians in the Americas, the guides are available to any registered technician with internet access and will greatly assist in performing service on three of Boon Edam's most popular security products: the Circlelock mantrap portal, the Tourlock security revolving door and the Speedlane Lifeline optical turnstile series.

Show attendees will be able to test drive a number of Boon Edam products first-hand on the show floor, experience their advanced tailgating prevention technologies, as well as their ease of use and convenience.

Several of Boon Edam's highest level security entrances will be featured in the booth, including the Tourlock 180+90, the Circlelock security portal, and the Circlelock Combi. Integrating Boon Edam's best-selling security revolving door with an AMAG Symmetry card reader, the Tourlock 180+90 pairs access control integration with high bi-directional throughput to prevent tailgating and piggybacking without manned supervision. With the highest level of security available in an entrance, the Circlelock security portal prevents intrusion into the most sensitive areas such as data centers. The Circlelock demonstration incorporates two-factor authentication with an AMAG Symmetry card reader on the outside of the portal plus an iris scanning technology from Iris ID to confirm identity. Boon Edam's newest entry, the Circlelock Combi is a half-portal that transforms an existing swinging door into a high security mantrap entrance that prevents piggybacking – saving both space and renovation costs. At GSX, the half portal will demonstrate two-factor authentication, using an AMAG Symmetry card reader plus facial scanning technology from StoneLock Pro®.

Other security entrances being demonstrated in the Boon Edam booth include the Lifeline Speedlane Swing, the industry's slimmest optical turnstile, with MorphoWave™ touchless fingerprint technology from IDEMIA for high throughput with fast biometric identification. Also on display is the New Lifeline Boost access control pedestal. The Boost is suitable for the integration of a variety of access control systems, ranging from card readers and barcode scanners to various biometric devices.

Booth visitors will also be able to learn about BoonConnect, an IP-addressable, proprietary software system providing diagnostic and configuration tools for the Tourlock security revolving door and Circlelock mantrap portal.

Once again, Boon Edam is the official turnstile sponsor of the GSX show. This year, the company is featuring the sleek Speedlane Open, a new, barrier-free optical turnstile designed for deterring casual intrusion attempts.
