Vanderbilt, a global provider of state-of-the-art security systems, has announced it will preview its new Vanderbilt ACT365 cloud-based access control and video management platform during the 2017 ASIS International Seminar and Exhibits, September 25-28, in Dallas, Texas. The solution meets a need for small- to mid-sized enterprises (SMEs) to adopt more comprehensive security solutions into their operations without extensive capital investment.

 Vanderbilt access control-as-a-service

The Vanderbilt ACT365 managed solution, or access control-as-a-service (ACaaS), allows end users to remotely control and manage access to their facilities without a dedicated IT department, giving them the ability to deploy a robust access control solution while saving money on significant infrastructure purchases. Users are able to easily scale the solution to accommodate additional doors or cameras, as well as view live and recorded video, manage users, conduct muster reporting in the event of an emergency and review alarms - all from a unified interface on a tablet or smartphone. 

 Access Control Technologies acquisition

The acquisition of Access Control Technologies (ACT) in late 2016 brought the cloud-based offering to the Vanderbilt portfolio, capitalising on a prediction by IHS Markit in 2014 that the ACaaS market would top $530 million by 2018 and $1.8 billion by 2025. 

Cloud-based products are now more widely accepted across the security industry, making this an ideal time for Vanderbilt ACT365 to make its debut in the North American market,” said Mitchell Kane, President, Vanderbilt. “Users of the solution can see real benefit from not having to worry about servers, IT connectivity and compatibility, shifting access control from large capital investments in IT infrastructure and hardware to a more operational expenditure.”
