WestconGroup Southern Africa – the leading value-added global distributor of security, unified communications and collaboration, network infrastructure and data centre solutions, is now offering the next generation of Net2 Entry systems by vendor partner Paxton. The enhanced solutions allow WestconGroup installers and integrators to deploy more effective securitystandards, policies and procedures through physical security solutions designed to bolster current cybersecurity designs. Paxton’s line of access control systems is the latest addition to the Westcon Security Solutions practice, which arms solution providers with the training, education and technologies to succeed in today’s fast-evolving business marketplace.

Paxton, a UK market leader in electronic IP access control and door entry equipment, launched two new panels and released an update for the Net2 Entry system that will enable enhanced door entry functionality for versatile security and building management. The new Net2 Entry panels will replace Paxton’s current offering. The latest versions feature MIFARE technology, an innovative and intuitive panel interface and pan/tilt camera functionality for the ultimate security solution.

“As the lines between cybersecurity and physical security continue to blur, solution providers look to Westcon for insight that can ideally position them as trusted business advisors with their customer base,” said Andrew Potgieter, security solutions director at WestconGroup Southern Africa. “Paxton’s Net2 Entry system has various new features, including a versatile grouping feature that enables smarter management of multi-tenant buildings and gated perimeter sites. Additionally, it has improved SIP compatibility allowing more sites to enjoy the flexibility of answering their door remotely, from a SIP-enabled smart device or handset, giving users security and freedom.”
