ITHACA, N.Y., Sept. 29, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The CBORD Group, Inc., the leading provider of campus card and integrated security solutions to colleges and universities, is pleased to announce its new partnership with ASSA ABLOY, the global leader in door opening solutions.

"CBORD is excited about the opportunity to provide its clients with an ASSA ABLOY product set. CBORD solutions have already been integrated for a number of years with HID Global security products, a division of ASSA ABLOY. This new partnership will present CBORD users with an extended product offering to integrate their CBORD Card System to ASSA ABLOY electronic locks," said Cindy McCall, Vice President of Marketing for CBORD.

The partnership will better position CBORD® systems and ASSA ABLOY door security components, giving CBORD customers more alternatives for their campus security systems.

"CBORD shares our passion for providing solutions that better secure college and university campuses," said Martin Huddart, Vice President of Electronic Access Control for ASSA ABLOY Door Security Solutions. "This partnership will enable CBORD to seamlessly integrate with ASSA ABLOY's IP-enabled and offline locksets."

CBORD and the HID division of ASSA ABLOY have worked very closely in the past resulting in the very successful collaboration on the CBORD Squadron series of access control panels as well as other CBORD CS Access™ elements. This new dimension of the partnership will, over time, extend the integration of the two company's products.

CS Access is CBORD's IP-based door access control technology software platform tailored specifically for the unique needs of college and university campus security systems. CS Access has powerful privilege management capabilities that allow schools to track and configure patron access on a 24/7 basis. The system also supports integrated alarms management and surveillance solutions for a fully optimized campus security system.

The ASSA ABLOY locksets, powered by CS Access, provide campuses with an intelligent locking system that is simple to install, easy to manage and fully upgradeable.
