New York City“To say that I love what I do would be an understatement.” – Dave Higgins, Vice President, MDU Security Systems 


Ron TomSuden, President, and Dave Higgins, Vice President, are co-founders of MDU Security Systems in New York City. They founded the company during a “worst of times,” i.e., the Great Recession of 2008/2009.

The company has grown since then, and Ron and Dave don’t see the growth stopping any time soon. They’ve invested in Brivo Systems’ recurring revenue (RMR) business model, the Dealer Success program.

Threat intelligence is evidence-based knowledge, including context, mechanisms, indicators, implications, and actionable advice, about an existing or emerging menace or hazard to assets that can be used to inform decisions regarding the subject’s response to that menace or hazard.

Access Control as a ServiceEvery industry has its lingo. Access control and physical security is no exception. Add the cloud-computing layer, and it can seem like you’re wading in alphabet soup. IAM? SaaS? API? HaaS?

Then there’s ACaaS. The acronym has been around for a few years, but it’s starting to catch on. Put the term into Google, and you’ll get some relevant search results, one of which ponders its “disruptive” nature.

ACaas could be disruptive in the same way that BYOD and IoT have been. The latter two have caused a ripple effect, spreading from the consumer side to the commercial. Business is no longer the same.

Access control where you need it

Traditional access control and physical security solutions can often be stifling. The hardware is so bulky that it doesn’t fit in your small business environment. Maybe the system loses coverage in certain sections of the building—a case akin to the “Can you hear me now?” quandary.

  2. Can social improve security management?
  3. Can combining the two make us, and our physical world, safer?

He then proceeded to share just how social could make for not only safer spaces but also more secure ones.

The recurring revenue model (RMR) isn’t unfamiliar. Even if we don’t implement the practice ourselves, we likely use SaaS, subscribe to a service like Birchbox, or rent a physical (a building) or digital (cloud storage) asset.
