5th February 2014 | By Mouseworld Now Correspondent |

New Delhi, India, February 05, 2014: HID Global, a worldwide player in secure identity solutions, has announced that its iCLASS SE access control platform has been used by the Academy of Art University in San Francisco to secure almost every door of the institution, across dozens of geographically dispersed buildings that house expensive equipment and high-value student work product. The iCLASS SE platform has increased the university’s safety and security, reduced theft, and delivered new capabilities along with an improved campus experience and the ability to expand its access control infrastructure to support growth and future improvements.

Campus Safety Director with the Academy of Art University Mike Petricca said, “Meeting our twin needs for both security and scalability required that we upgrade to an access control system based on an open architecture that could support multiple card technologies and future enhancements. HID Global’s iCLASS SE platform has made our campus more safe and secure, while enabling cardholders to do more than just open doors with their ID cards, including making purchases using the university’s debit program for meals and cashless vending, and gaining access to athletic events.”

Academy of Art University has used the iCLASS SE platform to create what it believes is the nation’s first completely locked-down campus environment, with all access controlled through a single, centralized system. Metal keys are no longer required at the majority of buildings and the ID cards enable users to open doors much more quickly, which can be very important in an urban setting.

Anthony Ball, Senior Vice President, Identity and Access Management (IAM) with HID Global, said, “Academy of Art University has demonstrated the same spirit of innovation with its access control infrastructure as it has with its unique approach to state-of-the-art curriculum, facilities and resources. The iCLASS SE platform has given the university an access control foundation with which it can embrace change and support future improvements that will benefit faculty and staff, as well as students and their parents.”
