The Synergis™ Cloud Link 312 includes three Secure Access Module (SAM) card slots for encryption key storage.

What you should know

Using SAM cards to manage encryption keys means that end-to-end encryption is handled by the SAM card and the user badge. Removing the card reader from the encryption process is important because card readers are often not installed in secure locations.
