| Thursday 19, 2017

In the resent years Cybersecurity become the major challenge, high security networks demand identification key from the devices that communicate with them.

High level security network preventing cyber-attack by using the security standards protocol, this type of security improved in the Synergy terminal.

Mr. Erez Buganim, Synel International Marketing Vice President, said that the SYNERGY terminal from Synel Mll PayWay LTD is one of the high security level terminal available in the market. That thanks to the development of Synergy security protocol (IEEE 802.1X).

The Synergy security protocol (IEEE 802.1X) keep the authentication ID with a certificate key that issued by the authentication server before connecting the terminal to the network.

Authentication is done using a general certificate to all terminals in the local network. The certificate details should generate at the authentication server.

The Identification key send by the Synergy terminal in every communication session to network.

Synergy security protocol advantages:

1. Prevents network intrusions by using the terminal network cable.

2. Enable separate VLAN to the terminals.

3. Eliminates the need for security management according to the MAC address (quick and easy maintenance).

4. Suitable for organizations who require high network security like banks, financial institutions, and other security agencies.

In addition, the IEEE 802.1X protocol, biometric time clock SYNERGY already support more secure protocols such as https and SSH.
