Mercury Security, the leading manufacturer of OEM technology, and HID, a worldwide leader in trusted identity and access control solutions, announce the next-generation Mercury MP Controllers, designed to deliver enhanced flexibility and security for businesses of all sizes.

As technology advances, access control systems require robust encryption and advanced threat detection. The new Mercury MP Controllers empower access control software providers and integrators to seamlessly combine a wide range of access control technologies, elevator control, building automation, IoT applications, and third-party solutions into a unified, centralized and fully robust infrastructure. This open approach provides the freedom to choose the right solution for specific customer requirements.


Taking this commitment a step further, the new intelligent controllers were designed with advanced security features to safeguard sensitive data and to help protect against evolving cyber threats. A robust cryptographic engine supported by a secure boot CPU, crypto chip and data encryption aim to provide proactive protection against unauthorized access and attacks.


In today's dynamic business environment, organizations demand access control solutions that are not only secure and reliable but also flexible enough to adapt to evolving needs,” says Steve Lucas, VP of OEM Sales at Mercury Security. “The new MP Controllers deliver on these critical requirements, empowering businesses to create robust, future-ready access control systems with increased ROI, scalability and cybersecurity at their core.”


The Mercury MP Controllers provide partners and end users with: 


  • Flexibility: The freedom to design and upgrade systems without limiting software and hardware choices, and seamlessly integrate the latest technologies with no costly rip-and-replace projects. This flexibility extends to OEMs, allowing them to seamlessly integrate the controllers with both on-premises and cloud-based access control environments.

  • Scalability: The ability to meet system architecture from a single door to an entire enterprise.

  • Heightened Security: The support for physical and cybersecurity features to help keep networks and data safe.

  • Reliability: The peace of mind of having invested in reliable and trusted hardware in the business.


The Mercury MP Controllers deliver powerful new features such as a dual-footprint circuit design with alternate components for business continuity, a future-ready app development environment for expanded integrations and the adoption of enhanced cybersecurity best practices, like ARM TrustZone, to protect systems.


The MP controllers will be available later in 2024 through Mercury OEM partners.
