Protege GX is an enterprise level integrated access control, intrusion detection and building automation solution with a feature set that is easy to operate, simple to integrate and effortless to extend. Protege WX is an all-in-one, web-based, cross-platform system that gives you a fully functional access control and intrusion detection solution in a fraction of the time of conventional software. With no software to install, setup is quick and simple.
