Card Readers ensure secure access control.

January 12, 2015

Available with Pyramid proximity cards and readers and Delta smart cards and readers, MAXSecure feature protects against skimming, eavesdropping, and relay attacks. MAXSecure provides high-security handshake, or code, between card, tag, and reader to help prevent credential duplication and ensure that reader will only collect data from specially coded credentials. No other company will have reader/card combination that only that specific organization gets from their integrator. Read More
