Lenel, a global leader in advanced security systems, and a new competitor in the 2018 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Program, is delivering an extensive set of new features and utilities with the introduction of OnGuard® version 7.5.
The enhanced OnGuard 7.5 access control solution deepens Lenel’s focus on unification, mobility, cybersecurity and cloud compatibility with platform updates, including enriched browser clients and a next-generation visitor management suite – all adding to its already substantial capabilities.

The OnGuard 7.5 visitor management suite now includes a new browser-based client, which delivers a concierge-like experience, enabling front desk attendants to utilize mobile devices to manage and engage with visitors, capture their photos and even print badges on the spot.
Updates to the OnGuard Monitor alarm management client deliver a unified mobile experience that includes alarm, video and device management.
By using OnGuard Monitor with video, security and other personnel can move between desktop and mobile devices while maintaining situational awareness, more important than ever in today’s workplace.
A customizable layout, featuring live and recorded video linked to alarms or devices, enables users to view and personalize their monitoring environment.
Cybersecurity enhancements new to OnGuard 7.5 include support for third-party authentication solutions, providing a wide range of identity verification options for users logging into OnGuard via the OpenID® Connect standard.
For OnGuard® internal user accounts, new rules have been added for enhanced password complexity and expiration.
And OnGuard’s new Hardening Guide helps optimize installation and maintenance practices to guard against vulnerabilities.
Cloud-based deployment is supported through Microsoft® Azure® Active Directory and the Microsoft SQL Server.
OnGuard 7.5 users have the option to subscribe, rather than buy licenses, for these services.
“OnGuard 7.5 delivers on all fronts – as a more unified, cybersecure, mobile-and cloud-based solution, providing today’s value-added resellers and end user customers with the advantages they demand from an enterprise security solution,” explains Jeff Stanek, general manager, Lenel.
“When OnGuard 7.5 is deployed in the cloud, onsite server hardware can be eliminated while software installations and updates can be reduced.”
Additional OnGuard 7.5 enhancements include:
Lenel® Console 2.0, a clean, modern icon-based interface providing end users with a single launching point and centralized login for all Windows® and browser-based clients across the OnGuard system.
OnGuard Users client, a new browser-based tool enabling system administrators to perform user management and maintenance across multiple platforms including mobile devices.
Support for the new Lenel X Series intelligent system controllers offering a Linux based hardware platform with USB connectivity for configuration or network support with 256-bit encryption upstream as well as downstream.
Enhancements to OnGuard Visitor Self Service (an iPad app) enabling printing of check-in times and host names on visitor badges.
See OnGuard version 7.5 on display Sept. 25-27 at the Global Security Exchange (GSX) in Las Vegas, and will be commercially available in in the fourth quarter 2018 through Lenel value-added resellers throughout the Americas.
