SIA Launches SIA OSDP Verified Program
The Security Industry Association (SIA) has introduced SIA OSDP Verified, a new comprehensive testing program that validates a device’s conformance to the SIA Open Supervised Device Protocol (OSDP) standard and related performance protocols. Products that are OSDP Verified will be displayed in the OSDP Verified Product List and be able to use the SIA OSDP Verified mark in their product marketing materials.
SIA OSDP is an access control communications standard developed by SIA to improve interoperability among access control and security products. Already in use by many leading manufacturers, the standard is recommended for access control installations that require advanced security or will be used in government and other higher-security settings.
Benefits of SIA OSDP Verified include an authoritative listing of OSDP solutions; a consultative process that provides vendors with implementation and remediation guidance; a lightweight, nonpunitive program with no annual membership fees; and continuous access to open-source testing tools and community feedback that promotes device conformance through the product life cycle.
