According to the latest report, from research organisation – Omdia, Genetec Inc, a globally renowned technology provider of unified security, public safety, operations, and business intelligence solutions, has once again been recognised as the fastest-growing access control software provider in the world. The report shows Genetec displacing traditional access control vendors, and claiming the number two position globally (up from 4th in 2019). Access control software provider “While the global access control software market was hard hit by the COVID-19 pandemic and declined in 2020, Genetec grew by more than 30% globally, gaining ground in both the Americas region and becoming a top 10 vendor in EMEA,” said Bryan Montany, Physical Security Analyst at Omdia. Genetec credits its continued growth to the strength of its unified security platform, Security Center, which features access control solutions that easily tie in with video surveillance, ALPR, analytics, and more. Traditionally a proprietary market, the access control industry has now shifted to a more open one with customers looking to migrate to a cyber-secure open-architecture access control solution that allows them to choose hardware that is best suited to their needs. Security Center Synergis Security Center Synergis connects to a large and growing selection of third-party access control devices As a truly open system, Security Center Synergis, connects to a large and growing selection of third-party access control devices. This allows organisations to choose the hardware that addresses their security needs and objectives, while avoiding the long-term setbacks of closed solutions. Seamlessly unified with video and other security systems, Synergis delivers operational and security insights, there by leading to more informed decisions and improved operations.

The report showed Genetec Inc. rising to 4th position globally (up from 6th and 8th positions, in 2018 and 2017, respectively) with a growth rate of nearly 5 times the pace of the market. Fast-growing access control software provider “Genetec was the fastest-growing software provider in the Americas in 2019, increasing by over 1 percentage point to reach over a 9% share and maintaining its 3rd place ranking in this region. The company’s rise over the past several years has been emblematic of a broader trend favouring vendors that actively sell first-party access control and video surveillance solutions,” said Bryan Montany, Physical Security Analyst at Omdia. He adds, “The Genetec Synergis access control software readily supports integrations with VMS software and video analytics.” Secure access control solutions Enterprise, government, education, and public safety organisations are moving away from proprietary solutions, in favour of secure access control solutions that are part of a unified physical security platform. This allows them to make clear, timely decisions based on a richer understanding of their security and operational environment. Delivering on this requirement has resulted in Genetec not only outpacing market growth for access control, but also continuing to be recognised as the globally renowned company in video surveillance software solutions, according to another recent Omdia research report. “While much of the industry has been concerned with traditional access control needs, Genetec has taken a radically different approach that looks beyond the door,” said Léon Langlais, Vice President of Product Engineering at Genetec Inc.
