Enterprise-ready SaaS platform introduces a new era of access control, transforming data into actionable insights for the built world
BETHESDA, MD November 18, 2020
Brivo, the global leader in cloud-based access control and smart apartment automation, announces the launch of Brivo Access, a unified security platform delivering new digital transformation capabilities for organizations worldwide. Brivo Access sets a new standard for access control with the industry’s first integrated business intelligence (BI) tools and machine learning technologies to transform data into actionable insights.
Brivo Access will improve the ability of the CISO/CSO to manage more comprehensive data sets and have a more holistic view of the business. Security teams will be empowered with easily customized and visualized access control and smart building sensor data to illuminate anomalies and better protect their people and property.
“Security and building management systems, unfortunately, have not always enjoyed the latest technology solutions, and the power of data and AI have been no exception. Slow cloud adoption, underfunded technology budgets, and mismatched business and purchasing models are just a few of the reasons these industries have been left behind. All of that changes with Brivo Access. Security and building management teams now have the power of data, business intelligence, integration and insight at their fingertips. And the benefits are more compelling than ever before,” said Steve Van Till, Brivo President & CEO.
The Power of Data and Analytics
Digital data about physical spaces has become more important in a new way due to COVID-19 and the new behaviors and usage patterns it is driving. Security systems have traditionally been viewed as defensive systems that prevent things from happening, but with data, that viewpoint is transformed to one of proactive planning and innovation.
“We knew that having the ability to aggregate, analyze and act on security data was paramount for Brivo users, said Jeff Nielson, Brivo CTO. “We heard from our customers time and time again that they had data, but needed a way to bring to the forefront what was critical to pay attention to. If they knew what was important, they could act quickly, dig into their data and understand opportunities to better secure their people and property and to evaluate changes for improvement and expansion.”
The revolutionary components of Brivo Access are Data Explorer and Global View. Data Explorer is a business intelligence tool built into the platform that renders your data useful by organizing and structuring it to allow you to see events and patterns within complex data sets. Data Explorer can zoom into data, create custom reports and charts, and generate business insights.
Global View helps you see exactly what is happening across all of your sites with summaries of expected access events as well as critical events. Zoom in or zoom out to dig into access data, displayed in map format, Global view gives users the ability to see what is going on in the business across sites, locations, and geographies.
Flexible for Business of Any Size
Another truly barrier-breaking feature is the Brivo Access Editions packaging that introduces tiered and bundled pricing to better meet customer needs. Flexibility is a key component of the offerings because not only does it allow businesses to choose the right set of options today based on size, location and requirements, but also the ability to scale as their business needs change.
Brivo customers include commercial properties, multifamily residences, smart cities, schools, hospitals, warehouses, logistics, restaurants, airports, retail shops and more. They trust Brivo for actionable business intelligence and proactive security capabilities.
“We really designed the Brivo Access Editions to suit the needs of our diverse audience,” said Dean Drako, Chairman of Brivo and Founder and CEO of Eagle Eye Networks. “Brivo is becoming the access control choice for Fortune 500 and global enterprises, but now we are breaking through the glass ceiling that has held security industry software products and services from delivering a true digital transformation experience for building technology.”
Security industry software products and services have been historically underpriced relative to other enterprise applications of equal complexity and importance. With the introduction of Brivo Access Editions, Brivo is leading the industry to fund the innovation that keeps us all safe.
Brivo Access is available in three editions which include specific sets of features. The Standard Edition features are the most similar to the current Brivo Onair platform and retains the option to add specific capabilities like API, Identity Connector and Brivo Mobile Passes on an a-la-carte basis.
Professional and Enterprise Editions have a base subscription that include unique, enhanced features that are normally priced separately as well as an allocation of readers and Brivo Mobile Passes. Al-a-carte items can also be added to accounts as required.
Brivo Access will replace Brivo Onair and all existing customers are able to use Brivo Access when they are ready to make the transition to enjoy the new capabilities. Brivo Access includes a link that enables administrators to revert back to Onair, if necessary. All customers are encouraged to start using Brivo Access now.
Brivo Access is the core of the Brivo unified security platform. Brivo offers comprehensive central management, cloud reliability and redundancy, cost savings, and an open API video platform that provides a vast number of third-party integrations.
Brivo, together with its partner Eagle Eye Networks, provide a holistic user experience for cloud access control and video surveillance. The Brivo API allows for seamless integration with partners like Eagle Eye and others making Brivo the only platform robust enough to power the future of proptech.
Another Breakthrough Innovation from Brivo

“Brivo went back to the studs and rebuilt the new platform to support data analytics and machine learning, with new security features that improve efficiency and provide real-time visualizations of your entire environment,” added Steve Van Till. “It took over two years to develop this data-centric platform to build the future of security for our customers and set the bar higher for cloud-based building security applications.”
