DISCOVER A TECHNOLOGY-FORWARD PHYSICAL SECURITY SOLUTION

Cloud technology enables an integrated, scalable, mobile-ready security platform

 

The Cloud Won. Now What?

It is nearly impossible to run a business without using some cloud-based technology. From email to internal communication tools to Salesforce and Adobe, the cloud is today’s acceptable interface for scalable business solutions. Companies have reported using an average of 16 SaaS apps every day with 73% saying nearly all (80%+) of their apps will be SaaS this year (source BetterCloud). If cloud technology is the answer for so many business needs, why would it not apply critical security and employee/customer safety?

SaaS market penetration in security is around 20% and growing (source IHS Markit), which is steadily reducing the need for on-prem, client-server security systems. 

By delivering operational benefits like secure system hosting, built-in redundancy and automatic updates, and the added convenience of simple browser and mobile applications, the cloud is the right choice in security platforms for today and tomorrow.

Use Actionable Insights to Improve Access and Intrusion Control

How are you using the data from your physical security system?

The Challenge

Brivo’s recent industry survey showed over 80% of respondents look at physical security data, but 67% say they cannot effectively use the data to or improve security. Businesses are not getting the complete picture of their access events or video and intrusion data. That means they cannot take actionable steps to understand trends, investigate patterns or adjust security policies.

The Solution
Get the exact data you need to achieve digital transformation with a cloud security platform that integrates access control, video surveillance and alarms.

The level of connectivity between today’s devices and systems means more opportunities to generate actionable data that can lead to insights.

With a data-driven security platform, you can visualize your data for a unique view of your security needs. Business intelligence and machine learning within the cloud security platform can help you solve some of your biggest security challenges like meeting compliance and preventing security breaches.

The Impact
Effectively answers questions like:

How do daily security patterns compare across my facilities?
What signals precede an actionable security event?
Where are administrative privileges changed most often?
Which locations stand out this week? This month? Every month?
How does my physical security data correlate with other data sources?

Go Mobile for Better Management and User Convenience

The Challenge
Work from anywhere is the new norm and 94% of U.S. workers report they are plugged-in on the go and have their smartphones with them at all times. Companies who tie their facility security to on-prem servers limit their ability to manage building access control remotely.
The Solution

Evaluate the mobile readiness of your security infrastructure and take steps to move to mobile credentials.

The cloud unleashes the power of mobility for both end users and security system administrators. The use of wireless technology for remote centralized security management and mobile credentials not only opens doors, it opens the opportunity to create the connected ecosystem you need to grow your business. 

Mobile credentials have an overall adoption rate at around 25% (source Security Magazine). A mobile-enabled physical security solution does much more than secure the premises: it drives efficiency and provides another source of data to generate further security insights.

The key is making sure that your mobile access integrates with complementary business applications for a seamless user experience.

The Impact

Meet your business goals with mobile solutions that allow you to:

Manage your facilities any time, without being physically onsite
Assign mobile credentials to authorized employees, contractors or visitors with the click of a button
Save time replacing lost or forgotten access cards
Quickly ramp up new locations with limited requirements for on-premise staff
Reduce security breaches with a secure, encrypted credential that can’t be cloned

Ensure Physical Security and Identity Management Solutions Are Aligned

How are you managing user access to buildings and access to business software and tools?

The Challenge
Many security products don’t seamlessly integrate, leaving businesses like yours to struggle with disparate software solutions and security blind spots that could jeopardize user safety and convenience.
Identity and access management (IAM) challenges are compounded when administrators are required to use multiple systems to ensure the right individuals have access to the right resources at the right times. IT departments use IAM tools like G Suite, Okta and Azure to centrally control employee access to web services, while security managers use dedicated security systems to manage building access. This disconnect can lead to mistakes, productivity delays and security breaches.
The Solution

Integrate physical security and identity management systems so you can easily provision and deprovision users.

Integrating IAM and physical security means any changes in your IAM tool automatically update to an employee’s physical security permission. This synchronization eliminates worry that inactive users can enter your building or access business applications. By integrating these cross-functional solutions, you can deliver better security with less work and ensure users access rights are always up to date

The Impact

Make physical security part of your identity management network to:

Quickly identify authorized users and reliably de-provision users to remove access

Manage users from one system and eliminate duplicative data entry for new or modified request access

Reduce auditing and compliance work

Ensure the right users always have the correct level of access to your facilities

Create a Welcoming and Safe Visitor Experience

The Challenge
Visitor management is an important part of an overall security plan but it is often managed by paper logs and time consuming sign-in requirements that slow down visitor intake, create backlogs in busy buildings and minimize visitor tracking information. How can you welcome visitors without compromising building security?
The Solution

Own your visitor experience by making visitor registration and management part of your physical security platform.

Every time a visitor enters your building, you are making a first impression. You’re also protecting your employees/tenants. Your sign-in experience should be fast and simple but also meet security protocols. 

No check-in staff? No problem.Give visitors the option to directly interact with a check-in kiosk where they can quickly input their name, take a picture for their temporary badge and select their host from your employee/tenant list. This makes check-in easy and convenient for them while your access control automations run in the background to ensure the visit is properly tracked for security reasons.

Creating a unified solution also solves a pain point that stand-alone systems cannot address: data integration with your core security systems. Bringing together security and cross-functional systems leads to digital transformation to improve your business while transforming security.

The Impact

Improve your visitor experience by implementing better security that:

Automates the sign-in experience to create a welcoming, secure and convenient first impression
Simplifies the process of notifying hosts when their visitors arrive
Prints visitor badges that clearly display visitor identification
Asks customized questions during sign-in (such as if the visitor has experienced recent illness) to protect all building occupants
Allows you to customize workflows for visitor needs during the registration process
